Leveraging semantic web services such as Thompson Reuter's Calais within Drupal enables you to do amazing things that will be part of the semantic revolution. This session will cover some incredibly powerful things you can do to augment content and create powerful features once you have the semantic context and metadata of the information driving a site.
This session is geared towards Drupal implementers, themers and module developers. If you have an interest in publishing or media sites or want to see latest and greatest in Semantic Drupal - you won’t be disappointed.
In addition to Q&A, the topics covered will include:
- Demonstration of the Calais Web Service & Calais Collection of Drupal Modules
Churches are not like businesses. They're not even like non-profits. Churches (and other ministries) are unique in their goals, their approach, and their challenges. In this session, Mustardseed Media Inc owner, Bob Christenson, and his Developer and Podcast Co-Host Matt Farina, will present how they build church community-style websites using Drupal on a daily basis, talking about the modules and approaches used to create successful sites.

The Facebook Platform enables Applications which share content with the Facebook.com website. These Apps can be as rich and complex as any website, so Drupal is a natural choice for developing on this platform.
This session introduces the Drupal for Facebook project. Topics include the basics of the Facebook API, differences between Canvas Pages and regular web pages, and authenticating users with Facebook username/password.
The Facebook Platform allows us to create applications which tightly integrate with the Facebook.com website. These Applications can write content to a Facebook user's Profile, News Feed, and also Canvas Pages. This content can be as rich and complex as any website, so Drupal is a natural choice for developing on this platform.
In this session, I'll talk about the semantic web and provide some background information about it, why it matters, and where it is in its evolutionary cycle (RDFa just got accepted as W3C recommendation, for example). Then I'll talk about how it fits into Drupal and what tools are available today. I'll close by discussing what areas we need to work on and where we should go next.
- What is the Semantic Web?
- Open Data!
- Why should you care?
- Where does Drupal come in?
- What’s next?
An understanding of where the semantic web is today, how it fits into Drupal, and when and where you should use semantic web techniques.
