Presenter for the following session(s):
One big advantage Drupal has over other CMS competitors is the ability to attach Date fields to anything, and pull them out into Views with the Calendar module. This is only the beginning.
This session will quickly cover the basic features of Date, Calendar and Date iCal, but dive deep into some specific examples I have built for systems to detect collisions in room bookings, send notifications and reminders, accept payments for event registrations, and many more examples.
