Presented at CapitalCamp, the DrupalCamp for Washington, DC, in July 2011.

What does the burgeoning practice of content strategy mean for the Drupal community? Working with a content strategist can help make the development process smoother and prevent last-minute surprises and frustrations. (“Why aren’t the news stories displaying on the homepage?” “What news stories?” "Who's writing the news stories?")

Using examples including content types, taxonomies, metadata, and backend copy, we talked about how multidisciplinary web project teams can learn one anothers' languages and collaborate to build better Drupal websites.

This beginner-level session was designed to bring together Drupalistas and the people they work with, including clients, site administrators, and non-technical project team members.

  • Mise en place (pronounced [miz ɑ̃ plas], literally "putting in place") is a French phrase defined by the Culinary Institute of America as "everything in place", as in set up. It is used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that he or she expects to prepare during his/her shift.
  • And much more!

    • 8. What are we thinking about?
      Discovery: What is this all about? What are the client’s objectives? What do the users expect? What content exists? What’s missing? What are the CMS requirements?
      Strategy: How will the content be organized? Where will the content go? Who will develop the content? What is our metadata strategy?
      Maintenance: How do we keep the content going? How do we ensure consistency? How are we measuring success?

    • 19. Card Sorting
      Instructions:
      Sort the cards into groupings that make sense to you
      Aim for 3-5 groupings
      After you’ve grouped the items, create a name for each grouping

      Cheeses (title, overview, country, strength, hardness, source, price)
      Beverage (title, overview, type, strength, country, alcoholic? y/n, price, cheeses (node-list))
      Accompaniment (title, overview, food group, price, cheeses (node-list))
      Cheese Plates (title, overview, dietary considerations, cheeses (node-list),beverage (node-list))
