I've been doing some restructuring of my personal sites and the underlying servers in the past couple of weeks - trying out some new tricks to get similar results with fewer (cheaper) resources, and at the same time learn about some modern web architecture at all levels of the stack.
Where can you find some of the most passionate, open, outgoing, and collaborative people on the planet? What is my favorite International happening? Where will I be getting my hands dirty with source code, teaching workshops, taking tons of photos and shaking o-so-many hands?
It has been a long time "maybe someday" project for me to build a blog aggregation website for Orlando content, as well as a Podcast site akin to the old ODEO, but again, featuring locally produced podcasts. In the last few months, I finally scratched those two off my list.
UPDATE: This training has been rescheduled for October 13-15th.
At the end of this month, I'll be presenting a 3-day long intensive Drupal workshop intended for themers, graphic designers, front-end developers, UX people, or whatever combination of those words you use to describe yourself.
Are you curious about HTML5, and how it REALLY affects the future of the Internet? Long-time web design leader Jeremy Kieth recently gave a keynote presentation on HTML5 during the 2010 Drupalcon in Copenhagen, but don't worry, this video will be useful even for non-Drupal web designers and developers.
It was prohibited to use a camera inside the museum, so I recorded this one in the parking lot.
Check out this slideshow by Robert Douglass at a recent conference in Europe. Pretty heavy on the Acquia love, but a nice overview of some ways large companies are rolling out dozens of sites and micro-sites to as many different audiences with Drupal.
Where do I even begin?
First of all, I must preface that the Drupal Community is without a doubt one of the best open source communities. (meaning: most open, most likely to share code, experience and best practices, most innovative, most forward-thinking, least likely to "chase the bunny", most likely to be the bunny, and most likely to create tons of venture-backed companies in the next few years)
