There are no hard prerequisites to this workshop, although participants who have managed site building projects before will benefit the most.
What to Bring:
There are no required materials, although a laptop for trying things out and taking notes.
The goal of this workshop is to have the participants take away:
* What developer workflow (git, code review) techniques can make a larger project successful
* Techniques for coordinating teams that are geographical dispersed among different organizations
* What scaling and performance issues are more likely to arise in a larger project, and how to anticipate and plan for them
* Planning for a maintainable codebase
* What advanced project management issues might arise from a large Drupal project
Our rough syllabus will be 40 minute sections broken up by short breaks:
I. Discovery, Planning, and Project Management
II. Developer Workflow and team management
III. Performance, Scaling, and maintainability
IV. APIs, platforms, and other big project technical areas
V. Transitioning to long-term support or ongoing development
