Publishing + Media
Drupal has been well utilized with publishers and the media industry for years, but often hidden under the hood. With Drupal 8, the Publishing and Media industry has reached a new level. Many publishers launched projects on Drupal 8 and dedicated distributions focusing on publishing when they became available. This track brings publishing / media people together, to share interests and ideas, to listen and learn, to discuss challenges and develop solutions, in the collaborative environment that Drupal has to offer.
Though Drupal has been a well utilized platform for publishers for years, it has not been emphasized for this purpose, but positioned more as a technology, recognized by technicians.
But this has changed with Drupal 8. Since Burda’s Thunder distribution, the NP8 distribution of the Swiss association Media Commons, Springer Ringier’s large headless Drupal project and Le Temps huge Drupal web site (with 4.2 Million page views p. month), Drupal 8 has reached a new level of recognition within the publishing industry.
There is momentum in people’s understanding that OpenSource can change a whole industry. A chance that publishers think about cooperation, when it comes to technology, instead of having big players like Google, Facebook, Twitter, ebay, etc. shape the landscape of technology for publishing and advertising. Open Source is a chance to progress publishing and advertising technology in publishers’ interest and to join forces in a global scale.

Let's start discussing with what's available and what could be a solution that fits Core direction. Maybe one day in Core as well?
Contributing to open source technology is no stranger to members of the Drupal community. But for a traditional company, the concept is quite unusual. That's why it was quite a bang when Hubert Burda Media decided to take this path with its Drupal 8 distribution Thunder.
PUBLIQ Foundation is a non-profit, distributed media platform, that offers a new publishing and rewards model. The wealth generated is transparent and fully redistributed to the participants depending of their reputation and/or involvements.
The goal of our latest Thunder-based publishing project was to launch high performant, successful sites with decent test coverage. In this session we'll discuss the initial architecturial considerations (decoupling?) and share the experiences gained while working on the project.
We want to look at existing third party solutions and how you can benefit from their seamless integration into Drupal media.
An overview of Digital Asset Management systems, embedding, Content Delivery Networks and external storage.
From universities with a large number of sites to enterprise content providers that are used to professional publishing workflows similar to AEM or Sitecore, content publishing in Drupal becomes increasingly important with the expanding possibilities of content creation itself.
Today, a typical organization and publishing houses runs dozen of websites. Besides the desire of quickly spinning up and launching new sites, the need of re-using content quickly comes up. This is where our contentpool Drupal distribution comes in!
A strong content model enables to present the data not just as a website. Beside serving your content onto different devises you can also present the data in a different way. One more and more important one is data visualisation you'll learn about
DC is vendor and developer of DAM systems mainly for the classic publishing industry. We like to introduce how Drupal and Thunder are integrated as part of a multichannel publishing strategy at these customers.
Paragraphs module is one of the most used Drupal 8 contrib modules when it comes to content creation. The module offers many powerful, but not well known features that can significantly boost content creation experience.
In this presentation I am going to answer some of the most frequently asked How-To questions when working with Paragraphs
We are looking for the best way to organize our content on a Drupal site. Now we commonly set Paragraph field instead native body field to get featured landing pages. Paragraphs have extremely flexible interface, and powerful customization abilities, but they aren't reusable.
One of the biggest complaints often heard among Drupal authors and editors, is the lack of an easy-to-use interface. In this session, we present the current state of Geysir, a contributed module we conceived with one single goal in mind: provide a great way for non-technical end-users to manage content in Drupal.
We'll show a series of modules that could be really handy when building sites with Drupal and when you're maintaining them. Most of them are from a site building point of view. The "way of the clicker".
We had 6 months to migrate a high traffic news portal from a Java based enterprise CMS to a new platform. ISPO wanted to turn from a trade fair to a leading digital publisher. We will show how it was done starting from the evaluation phase to the successful launch - our client will be there to share how they experienced the process and how Drupal improved their daily work compared to the previously used Java-based enterprise CMS.
This session will show how to use the module External Entities to share content between Drupal 8 websites while maintaining a Single Point Of Truth.
Over the last two years, we've recently moved to organizations from Drupal 6 and Wordpress to Drupal 8. In this migration we were asked to make the editors life much easier and give them option to create diverse content layouts when adding content.
Drupal handles your content. Desk-Net manages your editorial department. Together they are a match made in heaven.
This session details how we have deeply integrated our editorial calendar software Desk-Net with Drupal. Plan stories in Desk-Net and move them over to Drupal. Or publish breaking news in Drupal and see how the story lists in Desk-Net are updated in near real-time.
Drupal has for many years been one of the strongest options for designing structured content. This has been becoming Increasingly important with the growing demand for decoupled or headless systems that can support a variety of content consumers.
Mylife is the health portal of BurdaLife, the business division in the National media brand of Hubert Burda Media which has the most reach. Our project team took care of both the SEO concept as well as the conception and design development of the platform. We also carried out the technical implementation by using thunder.
We think, there should be a better /admin/content. As Dries mentioned in the Viennas keynote: "People (editors) spend their whole day, working with Drupal". Todays out of the box content management experience for editors can be better. We show how you can make Drupal a content editors favourite tool! We propose a whole new way of thinking about /admin/content.
