Drupal Sprints around the World 30 Oct 2013

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. Sprints unlike regular user groups are an ideal place to flex your code knowledge and get your hands dirty. With initiatives such as the Drupal Ladder it’s proving that everyone can...

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

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...

The Deep End 18 Sep 2013

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...
