Finite Energy 13 Oct 2015

I have a finite amount of energy. My energy comes in a few different forms, all important to how I feel on a day to day basis. I find myself applying energy in the wrong place now. Energy that I put in often doesn’t yield the results I expect or frankly deserve. I’ve found myself questioning more of my decisions recently and the outcome of that has been eye opening to me. At the moment I put my energy in to the following things: Work, coding and process. House Family Community The energy I put into all these things is...

A little update 06 Oct 2015

The past three weeks have been crazy. Week 1 - Barcelona Week 2 - Packing house Week 3 - PHPNW Now - Moved in So lets just recap, I keynoted at Barcelona, packed up my flat, spoke at PHPNW and then moved house the day after. I’m shattered, mentally and physically now. I’ve got a few blog posts in draft about both DrupalCon and PHPNW which I’ll put out when I get chance. For the time being I have to tether of my phone and I’m loving snuggling on the couch with Hannah so I’m scaling back my online access...

I’ve been totally blown away by all the discussions and feedback I’ve had over the past week here in Barcelona, it’s been truly amazing and I’m so lucky to have been a part of it. #Sunday I arrived in the evening which sucked a bit. Luckily I bumped into Steve Parks while checking in at the Princess Hotel. He invited me out with a few other Wunders for a “quiet” drink and tapas.

Coming to terms with contribution 25 Sep 2015

For a long time I wanted to contributed code to Drupal, I have a few times but no where near as much as I thought I was going to do. I’ve been thinking about what this really means to me and where my contributions come from. I’ve only just come to terms with the fact that my contributions don’t lie within code but belong in contributing to the community. Over the next few months I’ll be doing a few things: Working with Adam Hill to make communication in the Drupal UK community a bit easier. Helping Phil and Eli to...
