Welcome to mikebell.io
I code and listen to music, powered by coffee and whisky.
Make sure you have pear installed:
sudo pear upgrade-all - If this fails then install pear, if it works then congrats on updating all your pear extensions
sudo pear install PHP_CodeSniffer
OSX Only -
sudo cp /private/etc/php.ini.default /private/etc/php.ini
include_path = ".:/php/includes:/usr/lib/php/pear/" to php.ini, not to change your includes directory to where pear is installed!
Now for Drupals cs patterns:
Download Coder module - https://drupal.org/project/coder
Untar to a directory e.g.
PHPStorm > Settings > PHP > Code Sniffer
On Friday the 22nd there will be sprints at Techhub which run in parallel with the business day at Drupal Camp NW 13. I'm hoping to be there for the sprints pending confirmation of my holiday!
After the sprints/business day it makes sense for everyone to get together and go grab some food and drinks. Since everyone will be around the northern quarter we should make the most of it.
For food/drinks we'll head to A Place Called Common, they serve great burgers and have food suitable for vegetarians (not sure about vegan).
If your not fussed about drinking then next door there is Home Sweet Home which serves a great Pulled Pork and Sweet Potato bowl.
On the 22nd October Manchester saw it’s very first Drupal Sprint, this was run in parallel with London Sprints.
Regular sprints are now becoming a great way to help out with Drupal Core and Contrib. In the UK there are now two sprints covering London and Manchester. In India there are 3 user groups all sprinting regularly. No doubt there are some in the US and in other countries.
For me the the Drupal community is amazing, it's always felt like a family, one you can rely on to help and support you.
It's time for a call to arms, people need to support their local and regional Drupal user groups and events. A lot of these events are volunteer run, it takes time and energy to run meetup after meetup and big events. The people that organise and run these events are quite something, 9 to 5 days don't exist for them.
So this is where you come in, it's easy to help out:
I'm proud to announce Drupal Sprints Manchester (UK). Last year at Drupal Camp NW I spoke with various other northern Drupalers and decided that we should get together and attempt to emulate Drupal Sprints London.
The format is simple, Drupal developers / themers / builders get to together and work on Drupal core and contrib.
My aim is to provide a space where people can get together and get stuck in working on Drupal and giving back to the community in the form of code, all that's required is a laptop with an development stack and your brain.
The first meetup will be held on the 26th October at Techhub in Manchester more details can be found here - http://www.meetup.com/nwdrupal/events/14...
Starting at a new company is always a daunting prospect, you're never quite sure what to expect.
When I started at CTI I had no choice but to hit the ground running. I couldn't have hoped for anything better. I don't like the periods of not knowing what's going on the waiting that usually occurs while people find how your going to fit in. None of this happened.
I'm currently project lead on a very interesting project that's technically challenging. It's great to be working with some pretty amazing developers and freelancers to build this project and see it come together from a different perspective (lead over developer).
This has always bugged me, you can't easily download Drupal to your current directory using drush. After a quick search I found this issue - https://drupal.org/node/495438
The following command works well -
drush dl -d --destination=".." --drupal-project-rename="$(basename `pwd`)"
So what's it doing?
- --destination - specifies where to download Drupal to
- --drupal-project-rename - renames the downloaded directory to your current directory
During my time off I figured I'd get my dev environment setup for when I start at CTI.
Using the really great puphpet.com I've created two new vagrant configs, the first is for Apache the second is for Nginx.
- Removed xhprof and dot file support
- Added an easier way to provision new vhosts and dbs.
- Added drush
- Ubuntu 12.04
- PHP 5.3
git clone email@example.com:digital006/drupaldev-nginx.git
For those that don't know me I hate HTML and CSS odd considering the profession I'm in.
I love when I see people do cool presentations and I really like to know how they've done it. Maybe I'm just a closet themer waiting to get out? Nah.
