A Call to Arms - Support your local Drupal Community 13 Oct 2013

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: Volunteering - everyone needs...

Drupal Sprints Manchester 26th October 27 Sep 2013

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.

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...

Download Drupal to Current Directory using Drush 27 Aug 2013

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
