Drupal Nights

Davenport Conference Room
25 1st Street
Cambridge, MA 02141

Event Type: 

I finished a Drupal site, now what? How do I handle supporting my user base? How should I handle rolling out new features or changes? Supporting a Drupal site or even a Drupal based SaaS (Software as a Service) environment can be a daunting task.

This presentation will focus on our approach to handling, supporting and continually updating our Drupal based application. We will cover the following:

  • Support timeline, everything from the issue occuring to the user being informed it has been resloved
  • Tools used to handle everything from support tickets to server rebuilds
  • Reasoning behind choosing the tools we did
  • Current practices for managing support and feature requests
