DrupalCon London 2011 Wrapup 29 Aug 2011

It’s that time again now that I’m well and truly full of drupalflu. This years pickings were slim to none, not that there wasn’t anything great out there but I just didn’t have the time to go out and grab any. My time was spent attending sessions and talking to potential new clients on our booth (which was awesome!). I did however grab a conference t-shirt which is great, as someone who collects a lot of cool and interesting shirts this one was pretty amazing, so congrats to the designers. This years conference was great, so many good sessions to...

Web Developers of the Future 15 Jul 2011

Today I gave a talk to 6th form students at Appleton Academy about getting into the industry and more specifically the drupal industry. It was a very interesting experience, one thing that was clear from the start is that schools suck. After being there 10 minutes even I didn’t want to be there so god only knows how students can stand it. All that aside though the talk went really well. My primary purpose for being there was to talk about the ways to get into the industry whether to go through uni or through work experience. I’d like to...

It’s amazing what a quick lick of paint can do! I’m now using a theme called simple clean and overriding all default fonts with a font selected using the Google Fonts module. Not bad for 5 minutes work.

Then you reach the bottom, look back up, breath in deeply and sink into an adrenaline induced warm cloudy feeling. Now listen to this - http://youtu.be/GIAIrNUYeJ8?hd=1 and re-read. I get this feeling everytime I ski, whether on my own or with my family, it's why...

Kickstarting a Drupal Module 12 Feb 2011

Here's a novel idea, why not use Kickstarter.com to fund module development? For example (because we can never have to many!) a new Image Slideshow module. The base price would be say $1000 to kick start the development process. Kickstarter allows you to have up to 3 rewards (I think it's 3) you could use this to tie in potential users and customers. Here's an example scenario: Reward 1 - (Quantity 4) - $25 - You get 1 feature of your choice addedReward 2 - (Quantity 4) - $50 - You get the module installed and implemented on your siteReward 3...
