Developing Mobile Apps for Drupal
One of the useful modules in Drupal is the service module that allows different clients to efficiently interact with Drupal content. We will demonstrate mobile app development using the service module. We will show how mobile apps extend your capabilities within Drupal CMS.  We will also discuss emerging technologies that make the mobile app development easier for Drupal CMS.

Drupal @ JPL  Drupal has been gaining speed at JPL as both a platform for building information portals and a framework for online data tools. PO.DAAC (Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center) has been leading the way in science data modules built on Drupal. We will demo a couple of the custom built modules specific to PO.DAAC as well as talk about the growing interest of Drupal and new Drupal projects being started here at JPL.

Introduction to Drupal module development

This demo will briefly introduce different Drupal development concepts such as Hooks, Form API, Menu system to create you own module from scratch. The demo will also briefly touch on the concepts such as using custom AJAX calls to build responsive interfaces on top of Drupal, and how to prevent Cross-site scripting (XSS) and Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks when using custom AJAX calls.  The demo does not assume any previous web development experience and can be useful to those who want to begin learning web development.

ESIP Commons: Using Drupal as a Knowledge Capture and Re-Use Platform for Organizational Memory
The objectives of the ESIP Commons are:
1. Provide a knowledge repository to formally capture and publish all the information and knowledge generated as part of ESIP activities
2. Provide a citation mechanism to acknowledge individuals and groups that generate new knowledge
3. Provide a publication medium for information that cannot be printed elsewhere such as technical reports, use cases, education modules.
This demo will showcase the ESIP Commons and specifically drill down to share how we are using the Commons for meeting artifact capture from session ideas to full meeting proceedings.
