why drupalcon
Why DrupalCon?
  • Getting in touch with community and spirit
  • Profit from information first hand
  • Any level, any area
  • Networking with Drupal community
  • Networking with CERN community
  • Advanced Training opportunities
  • Large Scale Drupal with 3 rep?
large scale drupal lsd
Large Scale Drupal - LSD

A membership program for the largest users of Drupal

Community within the larger Drupal community to foster:

  • networking, knowledge sharing, education and community engagement
  • work on collaborative projects

Leverage Economies of Scale

Giving back and making major contributions to Drupal platform

Organizations are Reinventing the Wheel

....behind closed doors

  • Creating incompatible solutions to the same problems
  • Not releasing these solutions back to the community
large scale drupal lsd2
Large Scale Drupal - LSD

Even organizations with the best intentions, the desire to give back, often fail to do so

  • Short term focus - desire to quickly solve a problem, no time to put in “extra effort” now (at a huge cost later)
  • Don’t release code b/c they want to add “polish” for release to the public - but never have time to actually do that
  • The fear that if you do release something, you won’t have the time to support and engage the community after the fact

  • Currently limited to large organizations, “end users” of Drupal
  • Exclusive: for companies making a strategic bet on Drupal

Member Networking

  • private events - quarterly membership conferences
  • peer to peer - meet and learn from each other
  • local events - engage your local community
  • global events - engage the broader community

Anonymize and aggregate common needs, into “Strategic

Areas of Interest”

Strategic Areas of Investment

  • Content Authoring
  • Mobile
  • Content Staging
  • Performance & Scalability
  • Security
  • DEVOPS (Reliable software releases through test, and deployment automation)

Business Case Example:

Views= module funded by Sony

  • Sony could have built views internally - they didn’t have to release the code
  • The community has added millions of dollars worth of enhancements
  • Sony NEVER could have created such a system, even if they had invested more money then the community added; a SIGNIFICANTLY great value / system

Future Projects

Short Term Value, More Projects

  • Shift toward smaller (but still meaningful) projects
    • LSD can’t afford to do 3 projects like CSI at the same time
    • LSD can afford to do 3 or more smaller projects

Peer to Peer Collaborations

  • Members also want to work together on their own projects

Benefits for CERN

Auto-matchmaking of needs

Community support problem and missing advanced training:

LSD can help carbonizing community
