Greg Smith is the Director, Departmental and Campus Applications in IST. As part of recent restructuring within the department, the DCA group has grown to include the Web Development team. To gain a better understanding of all things Drupal and support the Drupal 8 rebuild project that will be starting soon, Greg attended DrupalCon 2019. He brings back lessons learned and initial impressions from his first experience with the broader Drupal community, and also has a healthy supply of conference swag that will be available to seminar attendees!
Topic: GoSignMeUp – A new event/workshop/training registration system on-campus
This seminar will provide an overview of the new registration system ‘GoSignMeUp’ (also known as the “Training & Development Registration System”). Nathan will take a look at some of the features that help the system serve groups on campus such as the Centre for Teaching Excellence and the Office of Research. There will also be some information on future potential use cases (such as conferences).
Topic: The Centre update and tour
The Centre opened its doors to students at the tail end of the fall 2018 term, and was fully operational for the start of the winter 2019 term. At this seminar, you’ll receive an update on how the first term in The Centre went and what plans are in place for 2019, including a student chatbot. A tour of the new space will follow the presentation.
