On Wednesday of last week, we spent the afternoon on another monthly Last Call code sprint as part of the Drupal Give initiative. With beers and mimosas, BBQ and several extra-long extension cords, the afternoon passed in a flurry of laughs and bug fixes. We’re also pleased to say that we have a new core contributor to the community: Kelly McCabe! Congratulations, Kelly.
We sponsored this year’s NYC Drupal Camp, and Sean, Jeff, Justin, and myself packed up and headed down for an extended weekend in NYC. The trip started on a Thursday so I could be there on time for my presentation on Friday morning. On Saturday I was presenter at two more sessions, and we left Sunday after participating in some code sprints. It was a great camp and a great trip!
LC Advanced attended Design 4 Drupal in Boston this past weekend, in both our capacity as a team of Drupal enthusiasts and as proud event sponsors. Being further down the design end than the Drupal end on the spectrum of LCA web developers, I was thrilled with the content of this event and had a hard time choosing between sessions. Here's a rundown of what I saw.
Several of us here at LC Advanced travelled to Portland, OR last week to attend Drupalcon. Despite soaking up as much rain as knowledge, we all had an awesome time out there, and left in great spirits. The best part of Drupalcon (other than Voodoo Donuts of course), were the people we met. We spent the whole week hanging out with Drupalists from all over the world, including a bunch from Western Massachussets. You can't beat that.
This has been a long time coming. left-click advanced is pleased to announce that on Saturday, March 23rd, Commerce Point of Sale (POS) was released on Drupal.org. Commerce POS is a point of sale interface for the Drupal Commerce suite of modules. It is the (only slightly better named) successor to the UberPOS module, which did the same thing for Ubercart.
I've been watching a new competition for the past couple weeks called Moduleoff. It's a bi-weekly Drupal module development challenge. You are given a set of criteria and then you are required to submit a video and sample module. (You even receive a prize if you win!) At last, a challenge I had an idea for—Challenge 5: Do something cool with Node.js
If you're using Drush, you might have bumped into the Site Aliases feature (or at least heard about it). For those who don't know, a site alias specifies a Drupal site, giving it a short name. These are super useful for running commands against remote sites, automating database syncs, and speeding up your development workflow.
This is the Intro to jQuery session I presented at the 2012 Western Mass Drupal Camp. Included in this post is a video of my presentation and the text content of my slideshow. Enjoy!
Following the steps outlined below, augmented with some Drupal themeing and configuration, I built this tool: image2css
