Drupal vs. The Nature of Bureaucracy
Why do so many web development projects go so wrong, and why is it so painful just to think about it?

This workshop will use the example of Drupal to explore how open source technology and philosophy can be therapeutic when set up against classic bureaucratic dysfunction, such as feature creep, design-by-committee, non-compiling approval loops and meaningless corporate-speak.

Our speakers will set the audience up with a heavy dose of irony before letting them loose in a free-form requirements gathering workshop which the speakers will attempt to build during the session as an example of rapid live Drupal development.

Attendees will definitely have fun, but should also leave with new ideas about what organisations and individuals within them can do to make their lives easier when dealing with technology projects which are headed south.
