Ajinkya Kulkarni: Building a Native Android App with Drupal 7 Services

Description: In this tutorial we will cover the basics of configuring the Services module in Drupal 7 and accessing those services through a native Android app. We will use the Google's newly released Android Studio to develop a native Android app in Java to view/insert/delete content of a Drupal site.

Eric Johnson: NCAR EOL's Experience Using Twitter Bootstrap and Responsive Web Design For Field Catalog 2.0

Twitter Bootstrap is a CSS / JS framework that enables a lot of modern features that we're using in Catalog 2.0 and makes it easier to make web pages look nice. Responsive Web Design enables web developers to specify how a web page should be displayed based on parameters of the device, e.g. height, width, resolution, etc. This is very handy for write-once web pages that are presented optimally on a variety of common device form factors: phone, tablets, laptops, workstations, etc. Twitter Bootstrap provides convenient methods for writing responsive HTML and CSS, and has been used by NCAR EOL to implement Field Catalog 2.0 with responsive features that are essential to modern users.

This presentation will introduce Bootstrap, Responsive Web Design, and review NCAR EOL's experience using them to develop Field Catalog 2.0.


David Bassendine: Visualizing data feeds - opening up remote data with Drupal

Raw data sources are hard to view, navigate and understand in context. In this session, we'll explore the architecture Drupal provides to pull data in different formats from a remote data source, store it, then overlay interactive Javascript visualizations of different types. We'll create a data presentation layer that's easily understandable and accessible across devices.

Owen Barton: Drush 6 - Drupal on the command line

This presentation will give an overview of Drush 6, which is a invaluable tool that allows you do develop and control your Drupal sites from your command line. We will take a walk through some of the most useful, exciting and new (in Drush 6) functions and commands, as well as sharing resources for learning more, and integrating Drush into your development and deployment workflows.
