A few weeks ago, we helped a launch a new website for the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, an important partnership of key economic and climate research organizations. The incredibly fast project was built with OpenAID, a turnkey website platform designed to help NGOs create cost-effective program-focused websites quickly. Read about the project and how OpenAID helped GCEC reach communications and timeline goals.

Ten days ago I returned from 2013's European DrupalCon, held in Czech Republic’s capital, the beautiful city of Prague. Aten once again sponsored the event, making this our ninth DrupalCon as a company and the fourth DrupalCon I have had the pleasure of attending personally.
Aten's own Matthew Saunders, VP of Project Management, is running for the Drupal Association Board. Matthew's combined experience in the non-profit world, Drupal, and the Drupal community make him uniquely positioned to help shepherd the Association.

I found this kitten in my backyard. The kids freaked out at the adorable gray fuzzy fur, her playful energy, and the prospect of caring for the animal. After failing to reach any sort of owner for her, I wondered whether we should keep her. Then she shat all over my bedspread and I stopped wondering. I promised the kids we’d get a pet later, once they were a little older and could help care for and house train it.
The last weekend of June, 26,000 librarians descended upon Chicago to attend the annual meeting of the American Library Association. As always at “Annual,” as it's affectionately known, part of the draw and the excitement was the presence of 693 library vendors assembled on the exhibit hall floor at McCormick Place. Book publishers of all stripes comprise a good portion of the exhibitors, but also out in force are companies who provide electronic content and software platforms for library services.
This past weekend, sixteen members of the Aten team attended DrupalCamp Colorado in Boulder. As always, it was a blast to have so many of us together presenting, learning and having fun. In the past few months we have had several talented and much-needed additions to the Aten team. Our weekend in Boulder was the first Drupal event for some of our new hires, and the first Drupal event under the Aten flag for others. After a few days of settling back in the office, here’s what Aten’s newest members have to say about DrupalCamp Colorado 2013:
Getting up at 3:30am to catch a flight to Boston is not an ideal way to start the day. Knowing I was headed to Design4Drupal made it a bit easier to handle. Design4Drupal is an annual web design camp that covers design, UX and front-end development.
This month's Central Denver meetup varied slightly from the normal format. The focus on the meetup was discussing our experiences and thoughts from Drupalcon Portland. As such, the main introduction question was, "Did you attend Drupalcon Portland?" It was nice to see that roughly seventy-five percent of audience had attended, as it left a lot to discuss. We once again provided collaborative notes for members to contribute to and we certainly had a lot more participation than last month.
Last week 9 of us from Aten attended DrupalCon Portland, 2013. With more that 3,300 registrations, this was the largest DrupalCon yet. Our team was privileged to be sponsors, speakers, and co-organizers for the event. As always, there were plenty of incredible sessions, so many people to catch up with, and no shortage of after-parties. Here are a few highlights from the team.
