Prototype to Drupal Site: A Design-First Approach to Building Modern Drupal Websites

Crispin Bailey, Director of User Experience

Designing large custom websites can be a daunting task, but prototyping can help reduce the risk of costly rework by allowing testing and stakeholder feedback cycles to happen earlier and more often. Find out how to improve your end product and speed up front-end development with our prototyping tool, Kalastatic. It’s a flexible, open-source framework for building static prototypes and living style guides that integrates with Drupal.

Dashboards: Analytics for the People

Andrew Mallis, Kalamuna CEO

Google has developed a product that turns analytics data into informational, easy-to-understand reports through data visualization. It's called Data Sudio, and it’s steadily gaining in popularity, particularly because access to this previously paid premium feature is now free. It also can pull in data from other sources like Facebook, spreadsheets, or large datasets. It’s like Analytics meets Powerpoint.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Go from 0-60 on analytics fundamentals and terminology

  • Briefly speak about the broader landscape of marketing automation and digital marketing strategy

  • Talk generally about the power of analytics in planning and growing your web presence

  • Focus on Data Studio to build a dashboard that is meaningful and attractive

  • Show how to pull data from your Drupal database directly into your report

  • Discuss Drupal-specific analytics considerations

  • Examine other dashboard technologies like Databox, and middleware connectors like Segment

Attendees will receive a Google Data Studio template populated by their website data to  understand how to use the report on their own.
