  • And, we’re Back

    I finally got around to updating the code on this site and updating the projects and explanations. I am pretty jazzed with how it turned out. I started a git and while it is ridiculously empty, I do have some code I am getting ready to upload!

    I have been teaching with Girl, Develop it! and really enjoying my time with them. I am hoping to develop a drupal series of courses with the help of some of the slides and learning things already in existence over at Acquia.

    I have a lot of big goals and big ideas and since I am not doing a lot of side development work, and I am not in school… I have a lot of free time and I am pretty excited to put it to use on projects that I want to do and I want to work on.

  • git

    I need to start a github and upload all of my java project. I am getting ready to embark on some app design that i intend to release. Will probably put those files up there also. Will check in more later. But these are some notes to myself to ensure that I do this.

  • DrupalCon Days 2 and 3

    Ok, I needed to write this post last week or really like… yknow, 2-3 weeks back, but I had an failure of epic proportions and often times, I just get caught up over on my other blog which is where (in all honesty) I spend most of my time, but I am working on remedying this as I really want to have an outlet to post on as I go through school and as I work through Drupal fun at work. So I am trying to rebuild/build this blog up. So without further ado, I give you the rest of drupalcon Portland 2013!

    Day 2

    I feel like I could write an entire post on the keynote from Day 2 alone. The keynote for Day 2 of DruaplCon Portland was AWESOME! I know a lot of people would disagree with what Karen McGrane had to say about WYSIWIG editors and various other topics in the keynote, but I really feel like she made some excellent points. She focused on the fact that we are no longer in the world of print or just desktop web. Not everyone is on the same platform anymore when accessing the World Wide Web. This is important to note, not only for developers but for content producers. You cannot treat the web as a print medium like so many people want to. So she talked about this for a while and then went on to stress that WYSIWYG editors were only constraining us and that the problem with this wasnt just in content or on the front end but also with the CMS itself and while responsive design was a solution, it was only a front-end solution and one that didn’t think far enough ahead but really only worked for the here and the now. Instead of thinking in pages with content, it is best to start encouraging people to think in chunks <– I thought this point was very valuable especially with a robust and easy to manipulate system like Drupal.
