ThinkShout "Under the hood" at this year's Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit

ThinkShout is proud to support this year's Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit as a "Silver" sponsor. More importantly, we're proud to have three of our team members presenting on development and project management topics close to our heart.

Tomorrow morning, Lev Tsypin will be presenting on the state of mapping tools in Drupal 7. Lev will describe how folks can move beyond just putting points on a Google Map, with a review the state of the art mapping tools and best practices for telling stories using maps in Drupal. In this session, Lev will also demonstrate a number of Drupal contribute modules that we've developed for Drupal, such as: Mapstraction, OpenLayers Taxonomy, OpenLayers KML Layer, OpenLayers Field, and our latest: Leaftlet.

Tomorrow afternoon, I will be co-facilitating a session with Bill Fitzgerald on "Drupal Distribtions as Product and Service". Drupal installation profiles and distributions have become the cornerstone of our development workflow - both for productized offerings and for our client work. In this session, we look forward to talking about both our successes and the challenges we've faced in leveraging distribution-based development practices. Likewise, we will provide an inside look into the business of our "Watershed Now" Drupal Distribution.

Then, on Sunday, Andrea Burton and I will be presenting on the core tool in our project management and development workflow: "Paid Discovery." I couldn't be more excited about this presentation, as we've been heavily focused on crafting our discovery process this year and I think that we've made some huge strides. We just can't wait to roll up our sleeves and share.

So, if you're headed to the Summit this weekend, track us down. We'd love to talk more in-person. And if you don't have a chance to attend our presentations, stay tuned, as we'll be posting the slides next week.
