Don’t get me wrong, I love Drupal, but building a new site has always been a labor of love… emphasis on the labor. Sure, Drupal already provides a myriad of options for site builders like me who tend to lean a good bit more toward designer than developer. Unfortunately, most promises of drag and drop deliver something quite shy of a stable GUI experience. Not to mention local dev environments, often very powerful tools for those who truly know Drupal’s innards, have typically given me more headaches than solutions.
I had learned, over time, to simply accept this as a reality.
We're looking for experienced, Agile-friendly freelance Drupal Project Managers, to work with some of the best developers in the business, on our fun, cutting-edge client projects. For more information or to discuss, please contact me using the Contact link on this site, or via email.
Thank you for your interest in joining the BatCave (or Arkham Asylum, depending on your perspective ;)
As you can imagine, it's a beehive of activity here at Gotham City Drupal, as we prepare for DrupalCon 2012 in Denver, which starts this weekend. One thing I had put off for too long was getting a new round of business cards printed, and so you can imagine my dismay when I realized I had three (3!) days to go before I left and had "forgotten" to get them done.
Fortunately, one of our beloved clients, Jason Kessler of Tussle, came to the rescue, with a local (NYC) recommendation:
Paper Slam, Inc. 531 East 13th Street (ground floor (btwn Ave. A & B) New York, NY 10009 212-979-8766
Gotham City Drupal is a growing, quality-focused and progressive development company, and we're looking for an experienced, community-engaged, like-minded themer who specializes in Responsive/Omega custom themeing. We're a fun group of senior-level Drupal freelancers, with profit-sharing, organized community contribution and big plans for the future.
Like many others, we at Gotham City Drupal decided we could no longer support GoDaddy after learning of their stand on SOPA (fake-retracted though it may be). So on December 24, we moved all our DNS (20 domain names), hosting (3 servers) and numerous email and other myriad services to http://namecheap.com, which company has aggressively come out against SOPA.
We are happy to report a smooth transition was effected, with virtually no associated downtime. We are very happy with namecheap so far.
Another wonderful DrupalCamp here in NYC is coming up - seats are filling, so be sure and register soon. I am planning to present a session on Pantheon again at this camp, so if you're interested in hearing about Pantheon from a developer's perspective, please register. I hope to see you there!
Here's the formal announcement of the Camp from the organizers:
DrupalCampNYC 10 will be the largest New York City Camp to date, with 500 anticipated attendees and over 30 high-quality sessions across a spectrum of Drupal-related disciplines.
It's all happening on Saturday, December 10, 2011 at
Spring of 1984 was the second semester of my freshman year of college at The University of Texas. I was 17, a musician and Plan II Honors Program major. I was taking computer science classes, but the languages were Pascal and CPM, and the machines I worked on were clunky and command-line driven (DOS was king). I had started coding when I was 12, in BASIC using a Radio Shack TRS-80 16k machine my grandfather bought me.
This DrupalCon is really awesome in many respects. One thing that's a little hard to take is some of the "slicker" aspects. For instance, I absolutely HATED the super-slick keynote feel-good slideshows - and I hated the MUSIC even more I do really like the Expo in general, because I really enjoy meeting folks who are collectively doing great stuff with Drupal. My favorite booth by far was the Workhabit booth. On Tuesday it was pretty much similar to everyone else's booth.
