The second annual Drupalcamp New Orleans will be held at the Launchpad co-working space on March 28th. I'll be presenting Taming the Project, an Agile Approach.
MidCamp — the Midwest Area DrupalCamp — is underway and Aten has joined the Drupal fun. The conference is being held at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). We’re excited to support the event and contribute content, with sessions from James Nettik and Scott Reynen.
Not long ago, I went to a Denver area Drupal meetup. When it was my turn to introduce myself to the group I announced my name, took a look around the room and blurted out “... and I’m the only woman here.” I immediately felt weird about saying that out loud. But I’m glad I did. Why? It’s complicated.
BADCamp is one of the largest and most important Drupal events of the year. On top of a weekend of sessions covering development and nearly every other aspect of Drupal work, BADCamp starts off with two days of in-depth Summits. It’s just a few days away, but admission is 100% free and you can still attend if you register.
I just got back from DrupalCon Amsterdam. In many ways it reminded me of my first DrupalCon in Barcelona. In 2007, I was brand new to Drupal and excited by a turn I had made in my career. I was astonished by what was then a young and energized community. I saw so much possibility and started making friends. Some of these people, seven years later, are my best friends.
Next week I'm heading to New Orleans for the 2014 CSS Dev Conference. I'm super pumped for three full days of CSS nerdery!
I’m headed to Austin again — this time for SXSW ECO. I’ll be meeting with thousands of people striving to meet the most significant environmental and public health challenges facing our nation and planet. This is right up our alley.
Most non-profits are great about establishing a vision, mission, and goals for their organizations. All too often though, that strategic work ends up divorced from an organization’s online presence and communications approach. When you’re in the throes of the non-profit hustle and staff are strapped for time with deadlines looming, the website, blog, or Twitter account is oftentimes the first thing to be neglected. While this reality is understandable, an organization’s content is crucial to its success.
