How to Architect Drupal Sites


Launching a Drupal site can be a challenge. One of the hardest parts is often making the leap from abstract plans into concrete decisions about module selection, configuration (content types, fields, views etc) as well as identifying theming and new development needs.

This session will discuss strategies for breaking this process into manageable chunks. It will also explain how to fit architecture work into the overall design and development process, answering some of the key questions below.

- How can we incorporate mobile and other platforms into our architecture?
- How can we fit architecture into a truly agile, iterative project process, rather than all up front?
- How can we efficiently review wireframes, site maps, visual design mockups and other documents?
- How can we effectively document and manage architecture plans?
- How can the architecture result in a plan that can be scaled out across a team?
