Higher Ed Summit @ NYC Camp

I'm a little late in getting this out there, but felt like it still made sense to post NYC Camp will be hosting their annual Higher Education Summit on April 11th.

More details can be found at:
http://www.nyccamp.org/summit/higher-education-summit

Even if you are unable to attend I'd love to hear some feedback and ideas on what would make for a great summit, what struggles you are having and how we can leverage each others experience to continue growing Drupal in higher ed.

Quiz 7.x-5.x

I'm trying to drum up support for a new 7.x-5.x branch of the Quiz module, optimized for Drupal 7 (not a straight port from Drupal 4/5/6) so that we can more easily port it to Drupal 8 in the future without the technical debt that Quiz currently has.

Webmaster | University of Texas Libraries

Employment type: 
Full time
Telecommute: 
Not allowed

Technology Integration Services, a department of the University of Texas Libraries, is looking for a new Webmaster. This is a sleeves-rolled-up development job, not simply a monitor and reporting position. This position is Drupal heavy, although not Drupal exclusive - probably 70% of your time will be dealing with Drupal, the rest of the time will be a mix of custom PHP and HTML, CSS wrangling, a bit of Wordpress and some more library / museum specific codebases like Islandora, Fedora Commons and DSpace.

ELMSLN packaged via Vagrant for easy spin up and try out

If you don't need to know how to setup vagrant and want to play:
https://github.com/btopro/elmsln-vagrant

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeuDKzs6sj0&list=PLJQupiji7J5fygec37Wd-g...

This screencast is a series of 4 videos (for now, will be more in the future potentially) that show how to get ELMSLN up and running with Vagrant. This is the easiest way to setup this system as other methods require knowledge of bash scripting and a clean server to deploy against.

If you don't know what ELMSLN is check out http://elms.psu.edu/blog/post/elmsln-doodle-series

Norways biggest e-learning site chooses H5P

www.ndla.no is Norway’s largest e-learning site for the secondary school level with 2,6 millions unique visitors in 2013. The website is publicly funded and has a large editorial staff for keeping the learning content up to date. NDLA requires most of its content to be openly licensed to encourage sharing and collaboration. NDLA now asks their vendors to deliver e-learning content as H5P, and uses H5P as their own authoring tool. They've already created over 1 000 H5P nodes.

APC + File cache + DB cache bin best practices

http://dropbucket.org/node/1046

I was hoping maybe some one had an article or could give me some feedback on the following settings.php configuration that I'm currently using to push Drupal 7 cache bins to APC user cache and the file system via the File Cache module. Best performance numbers I got was APC for everything but that obviously has some issues with fragmentation of the smaller cached values. Some context of what I'm also using for performance
-- Display Cache https://drupal.org/project/display_cache
-- Entity cache https://drupal.org/project/entitycache
