  2. How we came up with our current git workflow and why.

    Whether you're a site builder, designer or developer – whether you work on your own or as part of a team – you need to look after your code.

    It's easy to get started with version control, and I'll show how useful it can be, even if it's just you working from the kitchen table.

    When working in a team, version control becomes essential. I'll highlight some of the problems you may face and how to make git work with you rather than against you.

    At Code Enigma, we've run into issues with controlling permissions, making peer-review straight-forward and dealing with merge-request nightmares. I'll show you our current workflow, how it overcomes these problems and our plans for improving it.

  3. Drupal 8 has a new configuration management system! In this session I will provide an architectural overview of the system, as well as code samples and information developers will need to implement this system into their own modules.

  4. Rules is a great module for creating event driven actions through the UI and is used throughout the Drupal Commerce modules.

    Rules created through the UI can be exported using Features and re-used on multiple sites, but if you want to include a rule with you module that can be dynamically altered depending on the sites configuration this doesn't work.

    In this session I will give a brief introduction to rule and explain how to use hook_default_rules_configuration() and hook_default_rules_configuration_alter() to include rules with your module without the need for Features.

    I will use the examples from the Commerce European Union VAT module to demonstrate negating conditions, condition sets, and nesting rules.

  5. To show why Drupal is a excellent platform for startups, I will share my experience of a web app project: UberCheckout.com. In this project, I built a Twitter geo search application with contributed modules and custom codes in very short time.

    Here are some key issues in this case:
    1. Choose contributed modules and mineralized development tasks
    2. Replace modules with your custom codes in fast irritations
    3. Mobile friendly with responsive design theme and create app with PhoneGap
