This session is a really awesome to watch to get the frequently asked questions like How do I ensure my project is going in the right direction before spending time on development? or
How do I manage projects with many stakeholders without losing my mind? or
How can I turn my team's ideas into something we can test quickly?
I've often heard folks complain that Drupal doesn't scale well and has issues with performance. You'll hear people saying it isn't suited for large sites, or that it is bloated and too slow. A year ago, after a Drupal site failed abysmally under load (in less than 60 seconds) I was wondering if all of those statements and predictions were true.
Search in Drupal 8
The problem is well-known: core search has lagged behind for quite some time, being now mostly only used by smaller sites, and being largely worked around or completely replaced by modules providing advanced search solutions. It's essentially just part of "Drupal the product", not "Drupal the framework".
Search toolkit for Drupal 8
The current core Search module presents an API that tries to be generic, but ends up being insufficient for many advanced uses or for non-SQL back-ends.

Recently, I received an email invite for a webinar on mobile device development. I tried to sign up via my iphone, but was told that my mobile device wasn’t supported. True story.
SharePoint is the leader when it comes to handling documents and other company data for large organisations and companies. As Drupal grows, we need to address this by making it possible to integrate with SharePoint and leverage its document storage functionality from Drupal.
In this session I will discuss the current status of Drupal to SharePoint integration, what's happening in the Drupal Community and on Microsoft regarding this kind of integration and what will be possible in the future. I will end the session with a short demonstration of the SharePoint module.
