DrupalCon Austin - Recap


Now that you've STARTED, don't stop!
Time to build!


Thanks to everyone who Started Here in Commerce Village at DrupalCon Austin to talk, learn, and meet some of the folks who make Drupal Commerce and its ecosystem thrive. We had some great sessions, too, both in our Village Square and in the main conference.

Below are videos of presentations featuring Commerce Guys collected throughout the show.

In this session, Scott Hooker from Commerce Guys & Tyler Frankestein teach how to bring the massively expanding market of In-App purchases to your business. In this session they show you how to leverage this route to market, with a Drupal Commerce site.

The Digital Commerce Ecosystem

Sell a membership. Sell a support ticket. Sell an ebook. Sell a subscription to your new SaaS service.
One time fee? Sure. Recurring? No problem.

All this with Commerce License and related modules. The most important thing to happen to Drupal Commerce since Kickstart v2, pushing the limits of what Drupal can do. Don't believe us? Watch Bojan Zivanovic & David Kitchen delve into the details of the Digital Commerce Ecosystem.

OpenSaaS: Why Drupal is the Perfect Platform for Open-Source + SaaS Businesses

OpenSaaS offers customers the best of both worlds-- the innovation potential, freedom, and control of open source, plus the simplicity, quick time to deployment, and often lower up front cost of SaaS.

This session will outline what OpenSaaS is, our experience with building a Drupal-based OpenSaaS business, and how you can do it too. You'll also hear Robert Douglass, Josh Koenig and Andrew Hoppin discuss why OpenSaaS may in fact be a critical for the long-term competitiveness of Drupal in the face of growing competition from proprietary SaaS platforms.

Massimo Arrigoni from MailUp delivers a 15 minute presentation on how Drupal Commerce + MailUp can help deliver online sales improvements.

Lab: Commerce By Example

In this session, Josh Miller and Nick Vahalik from Commerce Guys will explore adding and configuring commerce on new and existing sites. Designed to be a follow-along lab, we'll have downloadable installs ready for your use so you can participate in all of the excitement. As much as possible, we'll use existing core and contrib modules and keep the coding to a minimum.
