These slides accompanied Nicole Lind's presentation at Twin Cities Drupal Camp 2013.
Drupal in the last couple of years has grown up. It has been chosen, built, and deployed by some of the largest companies and corporations in the world. This maturation has brought a whole new set of problems for Drupal. More often than not, enterprise Drupal projects rely on multiple 3rd party integrations, huge data migration requirements, adept risk management, high expectations of the editorial and administrative experience, and ill-defined QA and launch requirements. All of these challenges are coupled with the typical political, people, process, and limitations on schedule and budget. Nicole Lind walks you through her experience with all of the above.
