At the next Drupal meetup, meet guest speaker, Matthias Vandermaesen. Matthais represents Krimson, a company that works on large Drupal projects within media, culture, non-profit etc. Employees of Krimson have submitted thousands of commits to about 30 Drupal modules.
Synopsis and Programme
Drupal is a great content management framework but comes with a steep learning curve. A big problem is the way objects (nodes, comments, user profiles,…) are displayed. You don’t get a lot of control out of the box. Worst case scenario: you start overriding templates in a custom theme and hard code data. It makes development hard and maintenance challenging.
This module not only allows you to control visualization of individual Drupal objects through an easy UI. It’s a fully fledged API giving developers the opportunity to plug in their own code.
This session will give you an introduction to Display Suite:
* What is Display Suite
* A overview of DS features
* Several demonstrations showing you the ‘handiness’ of DS
