  • A presentation series driven by the NM community A night of fun and networking An opportunity to speak publicly about important and surprising things
  • Saw my 1 st Ignite NM at #4 Mick reached out for someone like me via twitter Volunteered for Ignite NM 5 to put together videos from footage I began hosting at Ignite NM 9.
  • See Yourself Teaching supports Ignite NM with money, tech resources, and volunteerism. Reach out to community Encourage people to help others understand new skills and ideas Heard of TEDxABQ? Anybody go to that? We're interested in people who have radical ideas about how to improve the world. Ignite is a venue for discussion.
  • Regular attendance is around 80-100 people New organizational challenges – Mick is gone, Gabe is gone, Miranda is gone
  • New venue – looking for the booze demographic Tracking heads helps sell IgniteNM to venues, the website should do that.
  • New community focus – each event will directly help a local non-profit with $$$ Robert Nelson of Metro Homelessness Project We want to promote philanthropy with non-profits that improve NM The website should do that
  • We used to have lots of people taking care of different part of Ignite Organizing resources Marketing Wrangling resources Being “The Face”
  • Now we have fewer people. The website needed to concentrate on helping organizers make the event happen Consolodate resources Focus energy Provide for easy transitions of responsibility
  • GOAL: Think about how the ignite site can change to accommodate growth Understand the rationale behind changes to the website Maybe provide some insight into how different people think about the web
  • GOAL: Collect ideas from the community on how the site can fit your needs
  • Basically, I'm a spaz GOAL:
  • GOAL: Hook up with design people who can contribute and improve it Especially front end layout
  • GOAL: Speculate on an upgrade path How might Drupal 7 improve the site further? How would changes affect implementation? What features need better implementation for organizers and the community as a whole? How can we continue to grow our connection to the community? How might the website facilitate that?
  • I've used it and I'm familiar with it. I wanted a tool to do a good enough job exactly my way. I have a big cognitive brain: data + relationships Drupal works for me because it exposes ways to link data relationships together.
  • The original page Wrong focus: too bloggy Lots of white space, uninetersting Countdown was hardcoded
  • Revamping the front page More “ignitey” look - “Sandium” More dynamic, changeable, maintainable YouTube Feed Instant access to latest videos Spotlight our best videos NEEDS: Promote sponsors, beneficiaries, and community Cleanup and alignment
  • A typical Ignite Calendar Starts on Monday
  • First step is to get topic ideas from the comunity
  • Topic ideas are submitted on a form
  • The submisions are gathered onto a table. This data is exportable and downloadable
  • Webform replaces the need for Uservoice Topic ideas is attached to the event node Each event has its own form and results table. Responses are automatically grouped by event.
  • A typical Ignite Calendar Starts on Monday
  • The old site used Uservoice Go to another site to vote, felt weird Manage another set of logins for organizers, was unweildy Major problem: voting sucked. First come always got most votes Limited by UV's voting mechanism We wanted better representation of ideas
  • Forms in Drupal, highly customizable
  • After you vote, you see the results No influence before voting See your votes in bold, change if wanted
  • We have a lot of control here Popularity is reduced, snappy ideas are promoted We can customize the ballot format to accommodate our community's needs
  • Gather up presenters' slides and send them to us Past: email them to Mick. Lots of hassle: tardy, wrong format, etc.

  • Organizer tool makes scheduling easy. Click to see entire event form in web page
  • A typical Ignite Calendar Starts on Monday
  • The view we were just looking at will change...
  • Into this new view... Similar, but different
  • New cycle begins Always shows the right widget at the right time.
  • The view makes sure the right thing shows up automagically. All the organizers have to do is keep the schedule correct.
  • Manage all web partners from 1 website with security by roles Images, videos, and other media held me to D6 at the time Mailchimp module 7.x version has a nice transaction feature Eventbright is 6.x only Most other modules have been incorporated or updated by now
  • Show we're a great event # hits on promotional videos # attendees $$$ brought in at the door Celebrate our community partners We're capturing the data already How do we present it?
  • GOAL: Hook up with design people who can contribute and improve it Especially front end layout
  • Saw my 1 st Ignite NM at #4 Mick reached out for someone like me via twitter Volunteered for Ignite NM 5 to put together videos from footage I began hosting at Ignite NM 9.
