New blog: It's here

It's officially up and running. I've spent several weeks to get this site designed and importing all of my old posts and comments, and it's finally done! If you've been following my old blog, you probably noticed that I hadn't written for several months, in spite of my goal earlier in the year. The reason for that is because I didn't feel like the blog was going in the direction that I was hoping. I was blogging about things that weren't really that interesting to me.

Drupalcon SF2010

This past week I attended my first ever Drupal conference in San Francisco. The conference was the official Drupal conference, Drupalcon, that is held bianually. The conferences are typically held once in the US and once in Europe each year. The conference was the biggest conference to date for the Drupal community with over 3000 attendees. The conference itself kept us pretty busy basically all day. We were in sessions from 8:30 to 6:30 with a lunch break in there.

Drupal Install

Recently I was at my parent's house and my Dad asked me about setting up Drupal. He had read my Nimfahtography post and was wondering what it took. Since I use Drupal almost everyday, I suppose I take this for granted. Here is the easiest way that I have found in setting up Drupal on Windows XP. This setup will be similar on other systems as well.


I recently redid the Nimfahtography site for my wife's photography using Drupal. If you haven't seen the new site, check it out. If you want to see all of the technical details of how I did it and why I did it, you can see the write up here. This is just one example of something you can build in Drupal in less than a week (working a couple hours a day on it).

Drupal Tank

I attended my first Drupal Tank meeting this past Tuesday. For those of you don't know, the company I work for uses Drupal for their website, and thus I am very involved in the Drupal community. This meeting was for all of the Utah Drupal users. We had a good meeting, although there was a period where we spent way too much time deciding what we will talk about next time. All the same, some of the good resources I came away with:
