#Drupal | Posted

Roger López

has proposed Building Energy.gov - which ties into featured speaker Cammie Croft telling the Energy.gov story herself - for DrupalCon Denver:

his past summer, the US Department of Energy re-launched Energy.gov on Drupal. The technical requirements of the project were driven by an internal need to consolidate the publishing and editorial resources of dozens of program offices.

This session will discuss the technical challenges of developing a platform that will serve the current and future needs of the department, and the tools and techniques we developed along the way. We will also be discussing the projects that will be contributed back to the Drupal community on behalf of the work done for this project.

The technical discussion will include:

  • Choosing Drupal 7.
  • Using Organic Groups for content segmentation.
  • New techniques for block creation and placement.
  • State machine-based publishing workflows.
  • Custom data visualization framework.
