Speaking at LinuxWorld 2008

On Thursday, August 7 2008, I'll be speaking at LinuxWorld at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. My talk, Q+D7: Social Media Web Sites on LAMP: How Drupal Changes the Game, will demonstrate how to use the Drupal open source web publishing system to rapidly assemble a highly functional Web 2.0 site on the LAMP stack. I'll walk through the process of building a branded community web site using a custom developed module in PHP, along with out-of-the-box Drupal features such as blogs, ranking and promotion and discussion forums.
