You've ""made it."" You've grown your freelance practice into a bonafide digital agency. You have great employees, happy clients, steady revenue, etc. You (the captain of this ship) are running a successful agency by almost any measure, so why do things feel so chaotic? Why do you feel so stressed? Why are short-term needs always taking priority over strategic plans?

If you're anything like me (from just a short time ago), you've made yourself a linchpin to any and everything at your company. You're involved in just about everything your company touches. It's a lot. Maybe, like me, you work yourself to the bone to make sure the company succeeds. Failure is not an option. Your friends might even call you a ""workaholic"". You're always ""on"", always ready in case there is a fire that needs putting out. You save the day often, in fact, most of your time these days is spent saving the day...

If this sounds at all familiar, then this session is for you. I'll teach you how to regain control, to prioritize and delegate your tasks, and to get out of the trenches so that you can get back to doing your job: running the company.

Most people do not complete their courses.

The number of social media users globally has been on a steady rise. Tapping into this, organisations are now adapting their internal L&D strategies to integrate with social media to provide a more dynamic and engaging learning experience.

Automation tools can provide a head start in updating custom and contributed code in order to be Drupal 9 ready. Palantir.net is committed to increasing the coverage of these tools and is welcoming contributions.

Manually addressing deprecations in custom and contributed code is the most challenging part of upgrading to Drupal 9 and affects nearly every Drupal 8 site. The process is often more challenging than finding a deprecated function and replacing it with a new one; the challenge comes from learning how to use the new systems. Automation can help jump-start code updates as well as help developers learn to use these new systems. The Php community has built a tool called Rector which automates a lot of this work. Palantir.net has started building off of a community proof-of-concept called Rector for Drupal. We’ll talk about how to use the tool, how to build Rectors, and how to identify high-priority deprecated features.
Description
"Since the release of Drupal 8, great strides have been made to develop a component-based theming workflow that takes advantage of the best that Twig has to offer and also plays nice with component libraries and design systems. Gone are the days of redundant styles and markup, making way for the efficiencies found when Drupal and tools like Pattern Lab or Storybook can share the exact same code. That said, handling the mapping of data between Drupal and your component library can still be quite complicated and difficult to coordinate on larger cross-functional teams.

This session will provide an overview of methods that can be used to provide data from Drupal to a front-end component that lives outside of the traditional Drupal templates directory, including:

* Mapping data via preprocessing
* Mapping data in twig templates
** Helper modules including Component Libraries, Twig Tweak, and Twig Field Value
** Popular component-based themes and starter kits
* UI Patterns and related supporting modules
* Pattern Kit
* Compony
* Single File Components

Finally, we’ll look ahead to how this process could evolve in future versions of Drupal."

"If anyone would have told me what I would encounter as a female in the technical world, I would never have believed it. When I made the decision to switch careers, going from a Psychology background to tech, I didn’t know what to expect. I had heard stories, both good and bad, about others’ experiences and decided to make the change. Nothing could have prepared me for what I would encounter; the friendships I would make, but also the fear and pain I would have to overcome from people I trusted, just for being the only female developer in an all-male team.

When first starting with this company, I felt grateful and relieved that someone was willing to give me my shot into the tech world. Ignoring the fact that I was underpaid, I was also harassed by the senior developer I had been paired with. I thought we had become friends, when actually, he felt something more. When I didn’t reciprocate, he responded with hurtful words and a gun in the office. I thought the company had cared about what had happened, but it was more to avoid a lawsuit, so he left and I stayed, saddled with the feeling of loyalty that they had given me my big break.

It wouldn’t be until a full year passed that I finally was able to make a better change, going from a role where I felt stifled and patronized, to one where I felt empowered. For the second time around, I began a new job with a new company as a junior developer. Thankfully, this time, I was placed under an incredible team. My mentors, my managers, the Drupal community, they were all there to see me succeed.

As my responsibilities with the firm expanded, I began to grow. I quickly went from a junior developer to senior developer and to my current role as a lead developer. The Imposter Syndrome I had felt in my previous role slowly melted away and I began mentoring junior developers into believing in themselves as others had to me."

Many of the enterprise-grade Drupal sites we build at Bounteous rely on lots of data—much of which is often managed and stored in a third-party provider’s system. While conventional APIs—like those that rely on RESTful services—are common sources for pulling external data into a website, you may encounter some third-party providers who dispatch updates via webhooks. Here's how to work with those notifications in Drupal.

HonorHealth web product owner Jake Kelly and Palantir senior strategist Jill Farley will share how they utilized user research and top tasks analysis to develop a framework of “most valuable experiences” for HonorHealth’s audiences. The site’s information architecture and hierarchy, calls-to-action, navigation, and layout are all anchored around these experiences.

This data-driven approach delivered a flexible, scalable design system that exceeded HonorHealth’s audiences’ expectations. As importantly, HonorHealth’s product owner had the data to support UX decisions and build buy-in with stakeholders across the organization.

As per a 2019 study, The Global E-Learning market was set to hit $325 Bn by 2025. However, in spite of the promising overall figures, the subset of self-paced e-learning market is actually on a decline, by as much as 6.1%, with lack of engagement on the part of learners being a primary cause. Most people do not complete their courses.

The number of social media users globally has been on a steady rise. Tapping into this, organisations are now adapting their internal L&D strategies to integrate with social media to provide a more dynamic and engaging learning experience.

Automation tools can provide a head start in updating custom and contributed code in order to be Drupal 9 ready. Palantir.net is committed to increasing the coverage of these tools and is welcoming contributions.

Manually addressing deprecations in custom and contributed code is the most challenging part of upgrading to Drupal 9 and affects nearly every Drupal 8 site. The process is often more challenging than finding a deprecated function and replacing it with a new one; the challenge comes from learning how to use the new systems. Automation can help jump-start code updates as well as help developers learn to use these new systems. The Php community has built a tool called Rector which automates a lot of this work. Palantir.net has started building off of a community proof-of-concept called Rector for Drupal. We’ll talk about how to use the tool, how to build Rectors, and how to identify high-priority deprecated features.
Description
"Since the release of Drupal 8, great strides have been made to develop a component-based theming workflow that takes advantage of the best that Twig has to offer and also plays nice with component libraries and design systems. Gone are the days of redundant styles and markup, making way for the efficiencies found when Drupal and tools like Pattern Lab or Storybook can share the exact same code. That said, handling the mapping of data between Drupal and your component library can still be quite complicated and difficult to coordinate on larger cross-functional teams.

This session will provide an overview of methods that can be used to provide data from Drupal to a front-end component that lives outside of the traditional Drupal templates directory, including:

* Mapping data via preprocessing
* Mapping data in twig templates
** Helper modules including Component Libraries, Twig Tweak, and Twig Field Value
** Popular component-based themes and starter kits
* UI Patterns and related supporting modules
* Pattern Kit
* Compony
* Single File Components

Finally, we’ll look ahead to how this process could evolve in future versions of Drupal."

"If anyone would have told me what I would encounter as a female in the technical world, I would never have believed it. When I made the decision to switch careers, going from a Psychology background to tech, I didn’t know what to expect. I had heard stories, both good and bad, about others’ experiences and decided to make the change. Nothing could have prepared me for what I would encounter; the friendships I would make, but also the fear and pain I would have to overcome from people I trusted, just for being the only female developer in an all-male team.

When first starting with this company, I felt grateful and relieved that someone was willing to give me my shot into the tech world. Ignoring the fact that I was underpaid, I was also harassed by the senior developer I had been paired with. I thought we had become friends, when actually, he felt something more. When I didn’t reciprocate, he responded with hurtful words and a gun in the office. I thought the company had cared about what had happened, but it was more to avoid a lawsuit, so he left and I stayed, saddled with the feeling of loyalty that they had given me my big break.

It wouldn’t be until a full year passed that I finally was able to make a better change, going from a role where I felt stifled and patronized, to one where I felt empowered. For the second time around, I began a new job with a new company as a junior developer. Thankfully, this time, I was placed under an incredible team. My mentors, my managers, the Drupal community, they were all there to see me succeed.

As my responsibilities with the firm expanded, I began to grow. I quickly went from a junior developer to senior developer and to my current role as a lead developer. The Imposter Syndrome I had felt in my previous role slowly melted away and I began mentoring junior developers into believing in themselves as others had to me."

"Live Captioning makes events more accessible for people with disabilities using voice to text. It helps reach an even wider audience once the event is over by providing transcripts for videos and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) value for event sites.

Voice to text technology continues to improve every year. We are now able to share our thoughts in real-time with an entire room of people using tools that capture speech into text. But did you know that live captions have benefits in addition to accessibility that allows you to reach an even wider audience?

The Live Captioning Initiative, first and foremost, helps hearing-impaired individuals follow along and participate at events in real-time. However, live captioning also benefits multicultural audiences whose first language is different from the language being spoken or comprehend written word better. It helps people understand speakers with different voices and accents in many group situations and helps make your event more accessible by enabling access for people with hidden disabilities.

The Live Captioning tool can further the reach to an even wider audience once the event is over. The tool has a feature that creates a transcript for each session at an event. This transcript can be uploaded for video captioning to YouTube or other video sharing services. When the transcript is added as text to the event page, it provides SEO value to websites."

"Live Captioning makes events more accessible for people with disabilities using voice to text. It helps reach an even wider audience once the event is over by providing transcripts for videos and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) value for event sites.

Voice to text technology continues to improve every year. We are now able to share our thoughts in real-time with an entire room of people using tools that capture speech into text. But did you know that live captions have benefits in addition to accessibility that allows you to reach an even wider audience?

The Live Captioning Initiative, first and foremost, helps hearing-impaired individuals follow along and participate at events in real-time. However, live captioning also benefits multicultural audiences whose first language is different from the language being spoken or comprehend written word better. It helps people understand speakers with different voices and accents in many group situations and helps make your event more accessible by enabling access for people with hidden disabilities.

The Live Captioning tool can further the reach to an even wider audience once the event is over. The tool has a feature that creates a transcript for each session at an event. This transcript can be uploaded for video captioning to YouTube or other video sharing services. When the transcript is added as text to the event page, it provides SEO value to websites."

"With the initiative of CMI, shipping configuration among various instances of a site has become easy now. But when it comes to content, options are limited yet available. Entity share is one such contributed module that sheds light on some key features that one should not overlook while choosing the right one for their site keeping cost-effectiveness in mind. It provides an easy means to manage control on shared content among websites of a multi-site setup.

Key features:
1. Installing and configuration process.
2. Benefits
3. Use case
4. Limitation of the module

Many of the enterprise-grade Drupal sites we build at Bounteous rely on lots of data—much of which is often managed and stored in a third-party provider’s system. While conventional APIs—like those that rely on RESTful services—are common sources for pulling external data into a website, you may encounter some third-party providers who dispatch updates via webhooks. Here's how to work with those notifications in Drupal.

You've ""made it."" You've grown your freelance practice into a bonafide digital agency. You have great employees, happy clients, steady revenue, etc. You (the captain of this ship) are running a successful agency by almost any measure, so why do things feel so chaotic? Why do you feel so stressed? Why are short-term needs always taking priority over strategic plans?

If you're anything like me (from just a short time ago), you've made yourself a linchpin to any and everything at your company. You're involved in just about everything your company touches. It's a lot. Maybe, like me, you work yourself to the bone to make sure the company succeeds. Failure is not an option. Your friends might even call you a ""workaholic"". You're always ""on"", always ready in case there is a fire that needs putting out. You save the day often, in fact, most of your time these days is spent saving the day...

If this sounds at all familiar, then this session is for you. I'll teach you how to regain control, to prioritize and delegate your tasks, and to get out of the trenches so that you can get back to doing your job: running the company.

Automation tools can provide a head start in updating custom and contributed code in order to be Drupal 9 ready. Palantir.net is committed to increasing the coverage of these tools and is welcoming contributions.

Manually addressing deprecations in custom and contributed code is the most challenging part of upgrading to Drupal 9 and affects nearly every Drupal 8 site. The process is often more challenging than finding a deprecated function and replacing it with a new one; the challenge comes from learning how to use the new systems. Automation can help jump-start code updates as well as help developers learn to use these new systems. The Php community has built a tool called Rector which automates a lot of this work. Palantir.net has started building off of a community proof-of-concept called Rector for Drupal. We’ll talk about how to use the tool, how to build Rectors, and how to identify high-priority deprecated features.

"If anyone would have told me what I would encounter as a female in the technical world, I would never have believed it. When I made the decision to switch careers, going from a Psychology background to tech, I didn’t know what to expect. I had heard stories, both good and bad, about others’ experiences and decided to make the change. Nothing could have prepared me for what I would encounter; the friendships I would make, but also the fear and pain I would have to overcome from people I trusted, just for being the only female developer in an all-male team.

When first starting with this company, I felt grateful and relieved that someone was willing to give me my shot into the tech world. Ignoring the fact that I was underpaid, I was also harassed by the senior developer I had been paired with. I thought we had become friends, when actually, he felt something more. When I didn’t reciprocate, he responded with hurtful words and a gun in the office. I thought the company had cared about what had happened, but it was more to avoid a lawsuit, so he left and I stayed, saddled with the feeling of loyalty that they had given me my big break.

It wouldn’t be until a full year passed that I finally was able to make a better change, going from a role where I felt stifled and patronized, to one where I felt empowered. For the second time around, I began a new job with a new company as a junior developer. Thankfully, this time, I was placed under an incredible team. My mentors, my managers, the Drupal community, they were all there to see me succeed.

As my responsibilities with the firm expanded, I began to grow. I quickly went from a junior developer to senior developer and to my current role as a lead developer. The Imposter Syndrome I had felt in my previous role slowly melted away and I began mentoring junior developers into believing in themselves as others had to me."

Customers are changing how they buy and digital is becoming the primary channel of engagement. This shift is amplified by the change in economic and social conditions. As a result, CMOs are being forced to re-evaluate their approach and technology stack. They are in search of technology solutions that grow their bottom line in weeks, not months.

To hit their KPIs, more CMOs are turning to open-source technology. It’s fast, flexible and delivers a better ROI than a traditional software model.

As per a 2019 study, The Global E-Learning market was set to hit $325 Bn by 2025. However, in spite of the promising overall figures, the subset of self-paced e-learning market is actually on a decline, by as much as 6.1%, with lack of engagement on the part of learners being a primary cause. Most people do not complete their courses.

The number of social media users globally has been on a steady rise. Tapping into this, organisations are now adapting their internal L&D strategies to integrate with social media to provide a more dynamic and engaging learning experience. Here we explore the different ways that social media integration can be leveraged in enterprise e-learning systems and knowledge portals, with specific focus on systems built using Drupal for content management.

All too often, a website’s user experience is driven by organizational input and not the perspective of end users. In this case study session, you’ll learn how HonorHealth, an Arizona-based community healthcare system, partnered with Palantir.net to create a new design system for their Drupal platform centered around the needs of their users.

HonorHealth web product owner Jake Kelly and Palantir senior strategist Jill Farley will share how they utilized user research and top tasks analysis to develop a framework of “most valuable experiences” for HonorHealth’s audiences. The site’s information architecture and hierarchy, calls-to-action, navigation, and layout are all anchored around these experiences.

This data-driven approach delivered a flexible, scalable design system that exceeded HonorHealth’s audiences’ expectations. As importantly, HonorHealth’s product owner had the data to support UX decisions and build buy-in with stakeholders across the organization.

"Have you worked on a project where the client changed product requirements half way through, drastically increasing scope? Perhaps they wanted to iterate in the design phase far longer than originally planned and priced? In Project Management, this type of impact on budget, timeline, and/or scope is often referred to as an ‘incident'. And in some shape or form, we’ve all had to manage an incident.

Clear communication internally to the project team and externally to the stakeholders/clients is critical when unpredictable incidents arise. Reputation, customer attrition, and time (or rather, budget) are all at stake for your team. During this session, we’ll explore how to foster open and clear communication through the decision making (advice) and incident management process. We’ll discuss how this method can be used to manage the high stakes during incidents, keeping them as low as possible, and how it can guide a potentially stressful situation and lead to positive outcomes.

"Since the release of Drupal 8, great strides have been made to develop a component-based theming workflow that takes advantage of the best that Twig has to offer and also plays nice with component libraries and design systems. Gone are the days of redundant styles and markup, making way for the efficiencies found when Drupal and tools like Pattern Lab or Storybook can share the exact same code. That said, handling the mapping of data between Drupal and your component library can still be quite complicated and difficult to coordinate on larger cross-functional teams.

This session will provide an overview of methods that can be used to provide data from Drupal to a front-end component that lives outside of the traditional Drupal templates directory, including:

* Mapping data via preprocessing
* Mapping data in twig templates
** Helper modules including Component Libraries, Twig Tweak, and Twig Field Value
** Popular component-based themes and starter kits
* UI Patterns and related supporting modules
* Pattern Kit
* Compony
* Single File Components

Finally, we’ll look ahead to how this process could evolve in future versions of Drupal."
