DrupalCon Amsterdam: "There and back again"

DrupalCon Amsterdam has come to an end (well, it ended last week, buy hey, I need to catch up on some work as well). It was the biggest DrupalCon in Europe ever, 2,300 attendees! Pretty impressive. I've written a couple of blog entries, trying to capture my stay in Amsterdam and my feelings for a DrupalCon which I attended for more than three days (which has been the case with DrupalCon London and DrupalCon Munich). Not only did Drupal...

Sprinting for the first time

For many years, I've been using Drupal as many people do - by clicking, publishing information and creating websites through the addition of modules and themes. I know how to code in PHP, but with my involvement in the local Drupal community, organizing three DrupalCamps in Gothenburg (2012, 2013 and 2014) and having family and friends, there hasn't...

The exhibition "Art of the brick"

There just are art exhibitions just don't want to miss. During my stay at DrupalCon Amsterdam I was made aware that the exhibition Art of the brick was in town. This is an exhibition that tours the world, and since it wouldn't come to Sweden in the foreseeable future, I just had to visit it. The special thing about it is that the artist only used LEGO bricks....

Community Summit of DrupalCon Amsterdam

Even if I went to bed early, my B&B's location close to the fire department made my night eventful (two fires apparantly) and my morning at bit slo-o-o-ow. I did have the time to get my registration done at the venue, get a cup of coffee and join the other Drupalistas in G104 for my first community summit. Addison Berry greeted us, along with MortenDK and Holly Ross and topics were mentioned, topics covering different parts of the...

First day of DrupalCon Amsterdam

Releasing DrupalCamp Gothenburg's website. Finally!

My blog has been suffering alongside my work with DrupalCamp Gothenburg. It's hard work since we're only two guys making it happen this year, and there's a lot done and more to do. It brings me great pleasure to say that we just passed a major mile-stone when releasing the website for DrupalCamp Gothenburg. It's a new take on camp-sites, at least what I can gather. This site wont disappear after a couple of years, when the community looses...

More reliable Drupal statistics?

Fact: Using the Update module for collecting data has been the standard since Drupal 6.0.Another fact: Sites not using that module aren't submitting usage statistics to drupal.org.Yet another fact: Third-party monitoring services are rendering the Update module rather useless.Result: Misleading...

Drupalstatus.org - A new star on the Drupal sky

For long, I've been using Droptor to get an overview of all my Drupal sites and it's a powerful service that not only gives you an overview but also statistics of your content and several checklists (security, performance, SEO and health) to see how your website is doing. It's great and much needed, but there isn't happening a lot at Droptor. I've submitted several suggestions on how to improve their...

Working with screenshots on a mac

When I'm working on screencasts or guides of some sort, either for a customer or for my own website, screenshots are an important part of the process. To make my work easier, I've made some changes to the workflow when it comes to screenshots and I thought I might as well share them with you. Instead of having the screenshots ending up on the desktop of my mac, I've done some changes that saves...
