This presentation is about an admissions portal that Evolvign WEb is building for a large Canadian university. Requirements have included an intuitive application process for applicants and a flexible form building system for university administrators.

The slides include overview of the project and some of the technical details including:

* How we've used entities to structure complex data
* Implementing custom fields and validation
* How we're using Drupal 7's advanced Form API features
* Some of the interesting modules we're using

The presentation wraps up with a demo of the new Simple Field module that we've contributed on drupal.org/project/simple_field.
