    It’s a new year, and we’re thrilled to be back in the full swing of things here at Aten. 2018 was really good to us, with tons of growth on the team, new service offerings, new clients, and new project launches. We’re all excited for what lies ahead.

    Howdy, DrupalCon! I can’t believe it’s already that time of year again. We’re thrilled to be joining the Drupal community once again for a week of sessions, code, coffee, parties, more coffee and lots of great conversations. Can’t wait to catch up with old friends IRL – and really looking forward to making new ones.

    The Central Denver Drupal meetup is back for 2018! After a holiday break in December we’re going to start out the new year by looking at debugging using VDebug, a debugging client for Vim. Marc Isaacson will walk us through using Vim, Vundle and, VDebug (along with XDebug) to set up an awesome FOSS IDE that allows us to do interactive source debugging. Join us January 23 at Open Media Foundation.

    For the November Meetup, Ryan McVeigh walked us through behavioral testing using Behat and other complementary tools. Behat is a PHP testing framework that leverages the human readable Gherkin syntax. This allows for anyone to contribute to writing tests on projects, not only the developer. This ease in test writing means the user stories created at the beginning of a project can easily become what automated testing uses to evaluate the completed work. We also looked at the Mink extension, which emulates the browser.

    Last month, Tim Anderson showed us the ins and the outs of building a Drupal theme that needs to apply easily to many projects. Spanning multiple installs of Drupal, and multiple versions of Drupal itself can be a real challenge. We went through the foundations of a brand can influence what remains constant in a theme, and what needs to be easily configurable. We saw how Sass can be used to abstract those configurations out, making alterations to the base theme quick for spinning up sites fast.

    Last month, Aten’s own Michaela Blackham presented on accessibility and what it means for each person in your company. From designers to developers to project managers and beyond, Michaela went through ways for everyone to champion making our products more accessible. She also explained that accessibility is more than just testing on screen readers for users with visual disabilities. Any person could become even temporarily disabled at any moment. A broken finger or sprained wrist will affect people’s ability to interact with the things we build.
