Contributing to Drupal - a useful guide

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. Having been to a couple of the London Drupal Code Sprints [eventbrite.com] now, I have managed to contribute a number of patches for documentation on Drupal Core (None have been accepted at this time, but I am working on them still to get them in) but there seems to be a lot of momentum at the moment behind getting more involved in the community.

DrupalCon Munich Day 2

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. All URL’s are to drupal.org unless otherwise stated Day 2 of DrupalCon Munich, and once again I was up for the keynote (I am doing 1 keynote better than last year! At D.C. London I only made Dries’ keynote). This time it was by Anke Domscheit-Berg, entitled “Digital Democracy - How Technology helps Governments and Citizens to Open Up Politics and Public Administration” It was a very interesting keynote on the importance of open data, and allowing people access to non-sensitive data.

DrupalCon Munich Day 1

Some links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. First day of DrupalCon proper. It’s lunchtime and I am writing my blog. So far the sessions have been good. Dries’ keynote [drupal.org] was different, it was an interview done by Josh Koenig (JoshK [drupal.org]) on D.O [drupal.org]. The questions were mostly regarding Drupal 8, Acquia, and (Most importantly!) how Dries keeps his hair spiky! After the Keynote, I went a long to the Caching with no fear [drupal. [Read More]

DrupalCon Munich Day 0

(adopts pants Geordie accent) Day 0* In the DrupalCon Munich Hotel And David is determined to write a blog everyday! DrupalCon is finally here! Not that I have been waiting for a long time or anything! As I write this I have just popped up to my room to grab my AC adapter, and my conference pass so people know I am a Drupaler. Not that they wouldn’t guess given I am wearing my XKCD “compiling” tshirt [xkcd. [Read More]

DrupalCon Munich - here I come!

Links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. I have just booked my ticket to DrupalCon Munich this August - I can’t wait! Looking forward to seeing people I met last year in London, meeting new people and drinking plenty of German beer! (Drupal + Beer = awesomeness! Seriously hoping Drupal + German Beer > Awesomeness!) Now all I need to do is find a hotel… Thoughts on hotels near The Westin Grand in Munich I’d appreciate it! [Read More]

To Drupal 7 or not to Drupal 7 that is the question

This page is heavily out of date, as Drupal 8 is now available. Links have been stripped from this article due to age and inaccessibility. I’ve not blogged for what seems like an age! I wish I had an excuse above and beyond “I’ve been working and moving house” but I don’t, so I won’t give an excuse. Oh hang on I just have. Bother! Anyway I figured I would try and update my blog more regularly in the future (I know I always say that but what the heck I’ll give it a go) I decided to write my next blog article on something that I am being asked a lot by my customers at Contemporary Fusion Computer Services [Link removed, site and company no longer actuve.
