By Mike Madison

This webinar has now ended. Please view the session recording above.

Check out Mike's complete slide deck.

Digital signs are a completely different creature than standard websites, mobile applications, or really just about anything else you might be building. In particular, delivery mechanisms for digital signage must be perfectly engineered to ensure fast, accurate, and consistent data flow. 

This session will be focused on making a data pipeline for digital signage successful. We will discuss available technologies to build a pipeline, testing methodologies, and how to include Drupal in this pipeline. 

Who's This For?

  • Developers and architects

  • Drupal solution developers

  • Anyone involved in a current digital signage project

What's In It For You?

  • Powering digital experiences beyond websites; specifically digital signage 

  • Evaluating delivery mechanisms like REST and IoT 

  • Testing with Behat and PHPUnit 

  • Integrating Drupal into the mix, leveraging capabilities and contrib modules like Workflow, Roles & Permissions, Digital Asset Management etc.
