In the closing keynote of Drupalcon, which DrupalRadar hosted, we asked for people’s favourite sessions - and this one was mentioned by a few people to loud cheers from others. It’s a creative approach to giving a presentation - Amitai illustrates the features of Organic Groups by telling a story. It’s well worth watching - not just to find out about Organic Groups, but to sharpen your own presentation skills.
The session notes say:
Organic groups has undergone a complete rewrite making it up to date with Drupal 7. The session will cover the differences between Group and Organic groups, and how Group is taking advantage of the field API.
We will build a basic groups site without any coding.
Later, for the benefit of module maintainers, we will build an example module that integrates with Group in order to learn how to use its API, this way attendees will have a better understanding on how to upgrade the OG modules from version 6.
