I arrived at DrupalCon NOLA 2016 with some clear priorities for investigation, and I didn't come away disappointed. Read on for the low-down on the most important Drupal initiatives shaping our development experience here at Kalamuna.
DrupalCon is once again upon us, and I’m looking forward to not only visiting New Orleans for the first time, but also co-presenting my first Drupalcon session. Our support manager, John Ouellet, and I spend most of our time in the support trenches, so we’ve thought a lot about what makes a successful model for web support. We’ll be covering the who, what, how, and why of Drupal support, so if you’re going to be at DrupalCon this year, come see us and bring your questions. Below is a sneak peek of what we’ll be presenting.
Nonprofits around the world use Drupal to create sites because it provides a low-cost, flexible and scalable platform for any kind of organization. It offers thousands of modules and contributions from its community to tailor sites to fit their unique needs. So how do you use Drupal to fit your particular project? Learn about developer Katy Pool’s session at the Nonprofit Technology Conference Drupal Day in San Jose, March 22.
At BadCamp this year, one of my favorite panels was called Conquering Imposter Syndrome in the Open Source Community. It was extremely validating to hear the panelists' thoughts, and it got me thinking more generally about the unique ways in which working with technology forces all of us to continually confront our lack of knowledge. As technologies change and the open-source community evolves, we are all constantly learning new concepts and skills. How you deal with the Unknown says a lot about you and your probable success as a web developer. In this post I outline ways I see people dealing with their own un-knowing and how those styles impact their success.
It's that time of year again, when Drupal developers from far and wide come to take advantage of the lingering California summer and revel in Drupal nirvana at the Bay Area Drupal Camp (aka "BADCamp").
Wait, is This BADCamp 2011? This Drupalcon felt a bit more like a camp than conference. It was more modest in scale than the Drupalcons I’ve attended in North America, and a high percentage of attendees were developers rather than businesspersons exploring Drupal as a solution to their online needs.
Two continents. Three Drupal events. One summer that would define the future of Drupal. This is the second post in a three-part series detailing the fantastic advances in the Drupal world that Kalamunist Alec Reynolds witnessed in his journeys to NYC Camp, GovCon in Washington DC, and Costa Rica Drupal Camp.
Two continents. Three Drupal events. One summer that would define the future of Drupal. This is a three-part series detailing the fantastic advances in the Drupal world that Kalamuna co-founder Alec Reynolds witnessed in his journeys to NYC Camp, GovCon in Washington DC, and Costa Rica Drupal Camp. NYC Camp was about company mergers and Drupal in the context of other open-source technologies. And what better place to celebrate Drupal as part of a greater community of technologies than amongst the utopian art and blue-shirted guards of the United Nations building?
BADcamp 2014 was an amazing success. Thank you to all the volunteers who made it happen. From the summits to the informal convos, everyone at Kalamuna got a lot out of it. Since I did get to go to a handful of events, I wanted to share some notes and insights from a few I think you’ll find useful. This post isn’t a “review” of panels or anything like that; it’s a collection of my thoughts and others’ ideas that might help you with your Drupal-ings. Enjoy.
Josh Koenig's passionate presentation on the Future of Drupal at CapitalCamp 2013 was inspiring and worth discussing. So here I am!
