Beyond The Web: Drupal Meets The Desktop (And Mobile)
We all know that Drupal is a robust self-contained system for running a social website, but what about when you want to hook it up with the desktop or mobile devices? This session will take a look at the capabilities built into Drupal core, as well as contributed modules, for combining Drupal with desktop and mobile clients. The presenter is a Mac & iPhone developer and the co-maintainer of the DAV API, File Server, Boost, and Trace modules, and inadvertently had code in Drupal core in 2001.
- Drupal core data portability capabilities
- Contributed modules for data portability
- Mini-showcase of desktop and mobile clients that work with Drupal
- Mini-showcase of Drupal sites that feature data portability
Attendees will take away an understanding of some of the main ways that Drupal can be combined with third-party applications that do not live on the web.
