This Month, Sara Poger Gladstone will be presenting Drupal As A Service.
In my opinion. this is a highly valueable topic in the Enterprise arena, and will be a leading factor in getting Drupal more accepted in that sector.
Drupal's modular design and rapid deployment is VERY well suited to standing up back-ends quickly for other applications' use. (Assuming the data model isn't wildly changing as part of the application.)
Sara is not only explaining the background and use-cases.. She is demonstrating examples as well!
If there's ever a meeting for programmers of other languages, frameworks, or applications to attend... This is the one! Because they can learn where Drupal could make their life easier.
