Responsive Drupal

Recently, I built my first "responsive" Drupal website.  I also decided to add some HTML5 to the mix, so you'll see HTML5 elements like section, header, etc in the markup.  Plus, we threw in some nifty web fonts and a cool one-page slider effect just for giggles.  Actually, we did it on purpose, but you know what I meant!

The Social Arms Race

We all know that Facebook is the dominant social network of the moment.  Three or four years ago, MySpace was the king of social.  Currently, there are a multitude of social websites each with a varying purpose.  The list of social sites like Twitter, FourSquare, Instagram, Skype, etc seems endless.

You may have heard about a phenomenon sweeping the web development community: Responsive Web Design.

DrupalCon Chicago 2011 : Initial Thoughts

I just got back from DrupalCon Chicago and I'm super excited about all the great stuff I learned in Chi-Town.  I'm going to post a more in-depth look at my DrupalCon adventure, but this "Initial Thoughts" post will hit on the key takeaways I had from the event.

Does Flash on Mobile Matter?

I keep asking myself this question.  I become especially curious when the buzz about new mobile devices and their ability (or lack thereof) to play Flash is mentioned.

Drupal 7 Upgrade

The Drupal 7 upgrade of my site has been completed.  A few hiccups along the way, but overall, not too shabby.

I'd still rather upgrade a Wordpress site over a Drupal site, but for the extra horsepower you get out of Drupal, I guess it is worthwhile.

I'm going to post a few thoughts, suggestions, and tips that I learned after my upgrade to help any of you out there who may be thinking about upgrading your Drupal site(s).

PS: If you notice any bugs, go ahead and post them in the comments and I'll get them fixed ASAP.

Temporary Look

Well, you'll notice I'm rolling a new theme on the site.  Don't worry, this theme business is only temporary as we make the port from Drupal 6 to 7.  Hopefully you'll only see this theme for a day or two, then we'll be back to regularly scheduled programming.

Myspace's Place

Myspace, I know what you're thinking, that's sooo 2007.  Sure, the Myspace enrollment numbers went into the tank and Facebook has become the social network of choice.  However, I actually think Myspace has found it's niche...MUSIC.  And, to a much broader extent, content delivery. 

Sitepoint Rocks!

Before I get too far along with this post, let me say this, I am NOT a paid spokesperson.  Now, on with the blogging...

Over the past month or so, I've been very fortunate.  Sitepoint, one of my favorite web developer resources has been offering a ton of outstanding training materials at amazing prices.  Here's what I've been buying:

WWDC 2010: Fallout

Nope, no Apple fan boy here. But, as a tech guy, I did want to post what I thought were the most interesting bits of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

First, and foremost, I thought the top news of the day was the AT&T upgrade offer. Second, would be that they're offering an 8GB iPhone 3GS for $99. Facetime and the HD video recording options were definitely cool bonuses. I also found the numerous references to PDF across iBook and other Apple software amusing, and I'll get to that in a minute.
