Sessions and Demos
Session: One Entry Point - Commerce for Online and Real World Transaction
April 11 10:45am-11:45am // Room 101AB (session page)
Join Becky, Director of Business Development, and Josh, Senior Programmer, as they review the state of the Drupal Point of Sale as it integrates with Drupal Commerce 2. Josh will compare and contrast fulfillment in the new shipping and inventory modules, and talk about a new module that handles requesting products from your suppliers and updates store stock. Becky will walk us through what Drupal Commerce is capable of in the way of “powering your business” and truly being the end to end backend brain for finances, accounting, product management, customer management, shipping, fulfillment, stock, inventory and community.
Session: How Memory Works in PHP and Its Hidden Costs
April 11 2:50pm-3:15pm // Room 101C (session page)
Join Shawn, CTO, as he goes behind the scenes and teaches about how PHP uses memory when it runs your code. PHP's ease of use and low barrier to entry has side effects to how memory is used - sometimes using memory differently and in places you didn't expect. If you're doing small pages that load quickly, for a low traffic site, this probably won't even be noticeable unless things go quite wrong. Once you get into heavy pages on high traffic sites, or even worse, long running background processes, then knowing a bit more about the memory you're using can help a lot.
