Don't Panic

Drupal, blogging and some other posts by Adam Evertsson


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 service and they have applauded them, saying that these suggestions will come in newer versions of Droptor but then ... nothing.

Thirteen years of age and therefore a competent system that… more

The Drupal Association contacted me when I was working on DrupalCamp Gothenburg 2013 and asked me to write a blog entry about the camp. This is the result, posted at The Drupal Association website in June of 2013. After visiting a DrupalCamp in 2011, I set off with a mission - to arrange a DrupalCamp in my hometown of Gothenburg. This became a reality only 5 months later and with the experience from that said camp of 2012 we set off to make the next one even better.
