How to Power a Lean Startup With Drupal

Do you have a product idea you want to get off the ground? Does it seem like you never have the time, or are you finding yourself or your team focusing on the wrong things for too long?

Drupal provides a cornerstone of tools that can help you get a business started incredibly fast. In this session, I'll demonstrate how I've used these tools to move from working as a full time contractor to running a self-funded, profitable, product-based business (read: no income cap) in less than a year.

Along with discussing the Drupal structure, modules, and other tools I've used and abused, I will address some of the principles and decisions that have helped put me in a position to move forward fast, as well as the challenges that arise from taking this approach.
