Building, Collaborating and Scaling Drupal Distributions for Federated Organizations

0

The promise of open source technology has always been the ability to collaborate, customize and scale. Drupal distributions perfectly exemplify this value prop: building and bundling Drupal functionalities to create sites that share specialized needs.

In this session, we’ll discuss our work with one of the largest federated non-profit organization in the world, the YMCA. We will focus specifically on a community driven initiative, Open Y - a Drupal distribution custom built for YMCAs everywhere.

Some specific topics we will go over include:

  • Leveraging open source software to foster sharing and collaboration.
  • Developing a communication strategy focused on key benefits of Drupal and open source, such as cost and speed of innovation.
  • Creating a sustainable model in a federated organization from small to large YMCAs.
