I helped a theatre in Schenectady, NY build a fun and powerful Drupal website, whose coolest feature is a series of televisions displaying a Drupal page, but you wouldn't know it to look at it. I'll also talk about our collaborative process developing new features for the site, and some of the fun behind-the-scenes tools we built to help them manage the site.

In addition to the awesome case study, I'll also cover topics around:

* Theming - grid systems, base themes, inexpensive graphic editors
* jQuery - Small hacks, and tons of custom code
* Views for site Administration
* IE6/7 compatibility - Getting Nice Menus and jQuery slideshows to play nice
* Working remotely - ins and outs, how to do it on the cheap
* Working with Dates, Event Data, and Search
