Room: 
Powerful CMS Room
Track: 
The Business of Drupal
Experience level: 
Beginner
Presenter(s): 
Campbell Angus

We host hundreds of small-to-medium Drupal sites, half 'regular' 'ol websites, and the other half online stores.

We jumped in deep end with Drupal when we started the company 2.5 years ago, and have learnt a lot along with way as we deliver online solutions to the huge small business segment.

Our talk will cover:

- doing business with Drupal
- managing hundreds of small websites - think Aegir
- doing more with less
- streamlining the delivery life-cycle to cater for very simple requirements through to more complex sites
- the cost of making exceptions for clients
- to outsource or not to outsource
- preparing for 100,000 site visits in a one-hour window without impacting our other client's site
