• Form Altering Node Add/Edit Forms

    Ryan Kois

    One advantage of not coding directly in binary is the ability to express computational intention in a human-readable form. Just as there are words and gestures that communicate intentionality to others in conversation, there are many expressions that communicate intention in code, though not all expressions are as elegant and functional as they could be. Such is the case for altering certain forms in Drupal.

  • Adding JS libraries to a Drupal project with Libraries API

    Garrett Dawson

    As a front-end developer, I often need to add JavaScript libraries to a project for front-end interaction. With most things Drupal, there are many different ways to go about adding these libraries, though some can be said to be more stylish than others. An approach that I’ve become particularly fond of utilizes a contributed module called Libraries API, which gives Drupal developers a consistent way to add libraries of all sorts.

  • JavaScript Logging with a bit of Sanity

    Rob Ballou

    Browsers have come a long way in giving web developers a set of useful tools for debugging JavaScript (JS): gone are the days of littering alert() statements throughout your code. We now have inspectors, debuggers, and other tools that make things much easier. And you've probably encountered console.log and the power of JS consoles. This can provide some good insight into what's going on with your code, but there is a catch.

  • The Problem of Feral Distributions and Some Possible Solutions

    Clayton Dewey

    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.

  • Drupal in Libraryland, Part 1: Challenges

    Nina McHale

    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.

  • Aten's Newest Members Share Perspectives on DrupalCamp Colorado

    Lydia Toupin

    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:

  • Design4Drupal Boston 2013

    Ken Woodworth

    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.

  • Central Denver Drupal Meetup Recap, May 2013

    Ryan Kois

    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.

  • DrupalCon PDX - Favorite Moments

    Justin Toupin

    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.
