Booster Shots for Drupal 7: Sep 17, 2010 (two sessions)

2010-09-17 08:00 - 17:00 America/New_York

Yes, we here at Drupaltherapy knowyou're so excited to roll up your sleeves and get dirty with Drupal 7. The only thing holding you back are a few nasty bugs. Well, before you start sticking your nose into features and code it's never been in before, you should take a couple of proactive steps to make sure your experience is a healthy and productive one.

Drupaltherapy announces Booster Shots for Drupal 7, a series of half day courses designed to keep beginner and intermediate Drupal users in the know on changes in Drupal 7. All Booster Shots take place in Boston, MA, on September 17, 2010, in two identical training sessions with your trusted Drupaltherapist, Sean Effel.

Consider this your immunization to shock, surprise, and confusion when you see the new admin interface. You may likely avoid lightheadedness and fainting when you see D7's baked in field and file support, not to mention the native image handling solution. We can help you be prepared for the new season of Drupal development ahead of us rather than let this new environment get the better of you.

Please take a moment to see our offerings, Booster Shots or otherwise.

Mac SW versus PC SW

This is a message to all you Drupalers that are on a Mac. We are in need of a new computer at my house. Do I go with another PC or a Mac? If I go Mac, I have to run Parallels so that I can flip back and forth between windows and mac to accommodate the Adobe SW in which I have a lot of money invested. So this begs the question, what SW out on a Mac that I can't get on a PC? What Mac only SW do you use as Drupalers? Is the switch worth it (processing power aside)?

Proposed Specs for Competency System

there are two parts: Competency repository and the competency-to-product mapping module

Competency Repository

The repository is a space/site dedicated to storing community defined Drupal-related competencies. But what is a competency? How are competencies organized? I have been doing some pondering and tested my thoughts with a google search.

Open Source Training Curriculum

I've been chatting with folks about this idea for a while, and it's now time to write it up and get it moving. Summary version: as part of/in tandem with the Git migration, I want to create a set of git-for-Drupal training tools. There's a particular structure I have in mind for how these tools should work:

  • First, we define our different target users/audience. For git, some the obvious groupings are "authors & maintainers" and "patch contributors"

Horizontally Scaling Drupal Workshop - 7 Aug 2010

2010-08-07 10:00 - 17:30 Australia/Victoria

I have been developing a couple of workshops around the theme of scaling Drupal horizontally. As Drupal becomes more popular people have to manage an increasing number of sites. It is pretty easy to manage 5 or 10 sites, but how do you manage 200 or even 2000 sites? During these workshops I will demonstrate some of the tools and techniques that I used to build, deploy and manage almost 2100 production sites.

Drupal as a vehicle for federated identity/content

I'd like to get some feedback on a few ideas for federating identity in the research and education spheres and Drupal's role in it. On the surface, Drupal should be the ideal platform with RDF and OpenID in core but I haven't seen the notion of federation discussed much. I think this could be of interest to the curriculum and training community who often have to deal with the consequences of silos.

Here's my outline of how I think the education and academic communities could benefit from federation
