Digital Publishing & Media

Media and Digital Content Publishing with Drupal
Friday, April 11, 2014 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

This summit will be held in S-1520 on the 15th floor of the Secretariat building.

Join thought leaders and decision makers across NYC's range of Media industries, including broadcast, digital publishing & social media. This year's summit will take a look at the challenges the media and digital publishing industries face regarding omnichannel publishing, including web & social publishing and content strategization. Drupal often finds itself in the sweet spot of these industries by its focus on content management and tackles many problems today's industry is facing:

  • Digital publishing workflows 
  • Structured content and authoring tools
  • Digital asset management (DAM)
  • Multiplatform distribution (Desktop, tablet, phone, 3rd parties, ...)
  • Inherent user duality: serving the end user AND the editorial user
  • Content analytics and ROI calculations
  • Broadcast Integration and Digital Video Publishing

If you're in the digital media or publishing space, are looking to manage your publishing workflow or have a system in place and are looking to improve it, or you are just learning about the many challenges of digital media, this will be a not-to-be-missed opportunity to learn from some of the top digital content creators on the web, and be exposed to best practices from NYC industry leaders using cutting edge publishing and digital media solutions.  Some of the core features of Drupal and latest features of the Media module and other publishing related tools will be covered in depth in this full day, participatory forum for digital media decision makers and technologists. 

This year's media summit is held in honor of Aaron Winborn, the prolific contributor to the Drupal media project and best-loved member of the community who was stricken with ALS last year. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Aaron. Please donate to the Aaron Winborn fund.
