Theorizing the Web has brought people together in critical discussion of technology and the web and their role in society since 2011. To quote their about blurb:
As a digital agency, we believe it’s important to remember the world that exists beyond our JIRA boards. We feel a genuine responsibility to always try to do something that can be of service to the greater good; especially when the opportunity to give a damn is so constant and pervasive.
Last month I went through Scrum Master training to learn how to better whip projects into shape, and I want to share a few takeaways from the two-day training. They say that Scrum is an easy process methodology to understand, but hard to master. I would agree with this wholeheartedly.
Every year we attend the Bay Area Drupal Camp (BADCamp,) an open source technology conference in Berkeley, California. It’s an opportunity to see colleagues, meet new ones, and learn from attendees’ sessions.
This October, come to our Bay Area Drupal Camp (BADCamp) booth to give your elected representative a piece of your mind. We won’t be holding members of congress captive at the Kalamuna booth (or will we?) but we’ll have plenty of other excitements there to keep you curious. And of course, BADCamp is a celebration of open-source software, so we’ll be giving plenty of Drupal talks. Read on to find out about those and our exciting booth happening.
Interested in online style guides and static site prototyping? This year at the Drupal North conference in Toronto, I spoke on the topic, and we’ve got the video of the presentation right here. I'm hoping that by watching you'll understand how you can quickly develop the front-end of your digital product and deliver overall better work with our prototyping tool, Kalastatic.
I left the global tech-music-media conference with more armchair philosophy than I could fit in my Delta Economy seat.
The Drupal community’s got heart. We partner with organizations that do work that matters, and we champion web accessibility, higher education and nonprofits in our events. This year at BADCamp we wanted to shine a light on this aspect of the community and do something different with our sponsor booth. Instead of giving away schwag, we gave away pre-paid charity gift cards that BADCampers could spend on causes they care about. See how the community spent the cards, and get a little background on how this charity donation booth came to be.
We’re excited to announce that two of our members will be speaking at the Drupal North conference this summer in Ottawa, Canada. Drupal North is a free, three-day conference focusing on Drupal-related topics and the community that drives the Drupal Project. If you’re attending, you’re in for a ton of great sessions.
Every year I try to attend as many industry conferences as possible, but over the years I’ve become more selective about which ones I go to. I find them to be incredibly valuable and insightful, but they also cost money and take time, so I grade them pretty hard. This year I had the pleasure of attending several UX-focused conferences. Each was great in different ways, and I came away leaving inspired each time, and wanting to share some of the lessons I learned, so I wrote this blog post.
