Drupal World Domination session slides from Do It With Drupal

Just over a week ago, I've been in New Orleans to talk about multilingual Drupal website building at the Do It With Drupal event organized by Lullabot. I've been happy to join fellow Acquians for a short time at the office and then at the Do It With Drupal seminar to represent the company. It was a fun experience to hook up with so many other people looking into using Drupal for the first time or even selling Drupal services already. It was a good mix, and was a very different target audience compared to Drupalcons. This event was more focused on the path seekers and the beginners with high detail and cross-discipline talks over four days. I've enjoyed several sessions, including Robert's session on Solr.

Unfortunately (for my enjoyment of the conference), my session was at one of the last slots, but it had a good turnout nonetheless. I've been prepared well in advance with a completely rethought line of thought (compared to previous, more developer focused events), and a slideshow done from the ground up. So despite talking about this topic before elsewhere, I needed to have a totally fresh look at the topic and present all the latest developments to date.

Since I do not have the permissions to upload my session to the website of the event, and the slides I sent in by email were not uploaded yet, I figured I'd better share them here with those eager to look into them soon. Happy holiday's reading if you are about to take time to learn more about multilingual Drupal solutions!

Drupal presentations and security releases

Some time ago, Szilveszter Farkas approached me to be one of the presenters of the Free Software Nights meetings, of which the first event happened to be yesterday. I was talking about the Drupal history, the community and business environment. But it also turned out early this week that I am going to help out with the Drupal security releases, which also happened to be yesterday evening (my local time).

Dries' Drupal Conference Hungary presentation video is available

Dries Buytaert in Hungary

We were happy to welcome Dries Buytaert in Hungary at our Drupal conference, around one month ago. We had Marcell Kiss-Tóth helping us with a video camera, and after his hard work with the editing, the conference session videos are now downloadable. You are most probably interested in Dries' presentation, since all other sessions were in Hungarian. The downloadable is very good in audio quality. You can download the video from drupalconf.amon.hu or alternatively from liktor.hu.

As a side note, after the conference, I also decided to publish my Drupal lego figure shots, which were used in my presentation. These are licensed under a Creative Commons license, so you can reuse them in your presentations or build upon them if you wish.
