Webinar: Relaunching GlobalChange.gov


Called by Philip Bump of The Atlantic “one of the best designed, clearest articulations of climate change I've ever seen.”, get the inside story on the design and launch of GlobalChange.gov, the highest-profile Obama administration website of 2014. Built to present a unified compendium of federal climate change research drawn from 13 different agencies, the site also houses the Third National Climate Assessment – the definitive report on how climate change is affecting the United States. Join us to learn from the strategy and development teams that worked with the U.S. Global Change Research Program and their stakeholders for over a year to design, develop, and launch this Drupal 7 site to wide public acclaim.

This session will cover:

  1. How you can turn dense, scientific data into a beautiful, accessible site
  2. How you can successfully leverage Drupal in a rapid development cycle
  3. How you can wrangle a complex stakeholder environment into a successful project

I got to meet Chris Wolz, President & CEO of ForumOne, along with a few of his team members this year at Drupalcon Austin 2014. These guys are great, and we are very fortunate to have them presenting their work. (They also throw a killer party!) Tell all your friends & co-workers not to miss ForumOne on September 24th!
