  • Great summary of prominent Drupal websites, really big names do trust Drupal. More and more every day. I wonder if there are many Drupal successful core powered applications, solutions like Tattler, OpenAtrium or GetPerception??

  • If you’re here, you know some stuff.\nThe basics - Different kinds of content,\nmodules add features, Views lets you slice and dice…\n
  • But you have complicated site maps,\nand detailed mockups, and legacy data,\nand odd features...\n
  • At conferences and seminars, focus is often on\ninteresting whiz-bang bits, specific pieces rather\nthan the big picture.\n
  • CHAOS AND MADNESS AND ENDLESS FEATURES.\nEasy to get overwhelmed.\n
  • Look at the things others have built, learn from them.\nUseful to see the diversity in design, but also the functionality.\nSee interesting stuff, learn some of the tools, and go nuts.\n
  • droge.com/flash - Pete Droge web site. Fully animated, fluid and fun.\nUses Drupal as the backend.\nUse “Services” module.\n
  • Use “Organic Groups”\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Built a business around “football” coverage.\nWorked with them after someone had come in, built it, and bailed\nThey needed to build in-house expertise to understand.\n
  • Way back in ’06, one of the first web sites I built. “Classic” site\nCommunity for sales pros - how tos, podcasts, membership levels\nViews, Premium module, Taxonomy for organization\nFoolishly used a beta of 4.7, got stuck between it and 4.6\n
  • The guys who made Mystery Science Theater 3000!\nDigital sales on their site, using Ubercart\nSmall budget, one dev, adding features as they need them\n
  • Lullabot’s Drupal training site!\nUse the same commerce system to sell roles/access\nSite licenses, streaming to iOS devices\nReleasing ‘Videola’ platform for others\n
  • Commerce Guys!\nNot a “turnkey” shopping cart, but a tool for making stores.\nTalk to them here!\n
  • Martha’s running Drupal, and it’s a good thing.\n
  • Huge archive, converted their old storage first\nMigrated one portion of the site at a time\nSeparate servers for internal and user content: like Discus!\n
  • \n
  • Long history of “grass roots”/political sites\n

  • Launched with a SUPER ambitious plan\nIntegrated RSS reader aggregating the whole web!\nSocial business community with 250,000 members!\nScaled back, much cleaner, much smoother\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Very serious about keeping things smooth.\n“Phased migration” - Coldfusion site with Drupal comments!\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • The Onion used to run Drupal.\nWas one of the big announcements back in 2004!\n...But they hacked it to scale, and Drupal moved on\n
  • Built their ‘AV Club’ site in Django\nOld site stayed at version 4.6...\nWasn’t benefitting from community, more and more custom code.\n
  • \n

  • \n
  • \n
  • Big coup in 2009, White House. Acquia + Phase II\nPart of Obama’s push for open source\n
  • Planning to roll out more social tools (commenting on whitehouse?)\nHave contributed back several modules\nWorked on security reviews and patches\nActive in DC area Drupal community\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Custom CMS, ridiculously painful editing process.\nTwo separate programs: one to create, one to edit content.\nGive everyone user profiles, friends, and connections\n
  • Interesting but low-traffic site... UNTIL THE NIGHT OF THE GRAMMYS\n20,000+ users registering and commenting in an hour\nTraffic == gigs/second; Drupal == first time it didn’t crash\nVarnish, Memcached, Pressflow\n
  • Millions of pieces of content, three TV shows a week, 1 PPV a month\nHuuuuuuuuge and rabid fanbase eats up news and photos\nLive coverage of events, constant content. 14 person editorial team.\nCrufty 2005 CMS + Windows app, no social, painful workflow\n\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Panels, Views, TONS of theming work.\nLayered custom forms on top of Drupal’s normal UI\n‘Produce a TV show,’ ‘Create a gallery’\nTheir team was thrilled, site launched smoothly (for the first time!)\nMore about task-centered design at 2:30\n
  • Britney Spears, believe it or not...\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • In 2006, Sony had hundreds of throwaway flash sites.\nFan webboards got more traffic than ‘Official’ sites\nThey built a reusable platform with Drupal.\nNow most work is skinning...\n
  • When one artist needs a feature (like discography)\n...Rolling it out to other artists is easier\n
  • Like the white house, they’ve donated back a lot.\nViews, Panels, FiveStar voting... competitors use them, too!\n
