Tear down that wall! Harnessing the power of taxonomies to create unique site experiences with cohesive structure.
When creating a site comprised of several sections, each with unique design requirements, the traditional approach is to use Drupal's multisite capabilities. One critical drawback of this approach is it creates artificial barriers between content, as each section of the suite of sites is isolated in its own database.
In this presentation, participants will learn how to leverage Drupal's taxonomy system to break down barriers between content while creating unique areas of user experience.
We will discuss the design considerations for creating a balance between each section's individual UX needs and overall site cohesion. An in-depth case study of this approach will be presented, along with specific examples of how this architecture was implemented.
Additionally, we will discuss project management and design strategies for working with organizations comprised of numerous divisions and involving
dozens of key stakeholders.
Participants can expect a blend of design and technical information as well as copious 80's references - so grab your walkman and join us!
