Looking to build a collaborative intranet or project management space with Drupal? You've likely considered Open Atrium.

I'll demonstrate how we use Open Atrium to manage collaborative exhibit projects at the Science Museum of Minnesota. First, I'll focus on our experience implementing this tool with a team of non-technical users. Then I'll lift the hood and show you how we customized Atrium, building an exhibit component database using Features, Spaces, CCK, and Views.

Expect to learn how to...

  • Effectively manage an Open Atrium collaborative site.
  • Customize the Open Atrium system using contributed modules.
  • How to export your own custom Features to code: tracking your Atrium customizations in code via version control.
