Global for Scale: lessons learned from building a global platform.


The flexibility provided by Drupal makes it great for building everything from small and medium websites, to large scale platforms.  Like everything as the scale of your Drupal project grows, so does its complexities and challenges.

The presenters of this session have spent the last two years building a large scale Drupal platform for use globally. We will discuss many of the challenges, pitfalls, complexities and lessons we’ve learned while doing so. Including topics such as:

  • Keeping an eye on the bigger picture
  • Maintaining business needs and client expectations
  • Multilingual and increased code complexities
  • Incorporating third party service
  • Scaling teams, workflow and deployment processes
