Downtown LA Drupal member Chris Paul (@cpjeeves) presents on a complex web application he built that has a desktop feel. Using AJAX, CKEditor and a host of other modules, his web application has an application-like experiance for the user and a nearly seamless content creation process. By leveraging the power of ctools command style AJAX, AJAX submit handlers, and a few custom upgrades, users are able to create content, view that content in relative lists, and then even edit and refresh those lists to suit their needs.

This kind of in-place create-and-edit system promotes a more intuitive creation process that doesn't break your train of thought while you rapidly input and modify your content. Drupal has always been capable of pushing the envelope. Join us as Chris shows us how he did it for this client project.
