Ok, so this is a very focused blog post, especially for my first return to the blog-o-sphere in a while, but I've gotten so much benefit from very focused blog posts that I had to throw this out there. From time to time, I find myself needing to specific a very particular Drupal permission in my access arguments for hook_menu. Well, if you didn't know - you can see the whole list by simply accessing your MySQL database and viewing the contents of the role_permission table.
We were proud to sponsor, 2014's Drupal camp... our really cool local Drupal Conference ... where Ashday's Clint Randall provided a training session on Drupal project management. The event was generously hosted by ASU again, and put together by the great folks at KWALL.
At the last Phoenix Drupal meetup, I was asked about using Compass and SASS to make Sprite(s). I knew it could be done, but Being a Dr. Pepper kind of guy myself, I wasn't entirely sure *HOW* to do it... so I decided to figure it out!
There’s a recursive function that I wrote back in college to solve a particularly complex homework problem in only five lines of code that I’m still proud of a decade later. Those perfect, concise functions that do exactly what you need them to do (and no more) are incredibly satisfying to write... even if no one else is likely to delve deep enough into your code to ever see them.
In years past I spent a whole lot of time developing applications from scratch, versus from frameworks like Drupal or whatever your framework of choice is. Building from scratch, you can make an app do precisely what you want it to and you can quickly figure out what needs to change because you built it from the ground up.
The Phoenix Drupal scene is an interesting beast, and it’s changed a lot over the past 3 or 4 years. When I moved back to town, the Phoenix Drupal User Group was meeting in a Scottsdale coffee shop monthly, only rarely having a set topic, with a handful of attendees, and only a few of them regulars.
Infusionsoft is one of the fastest growing Arizona tech companies, and as luck would have it, they're new corporate headquarters are 10 minutes away from our office. And Infusionsoft's softare is, simply put, amazing.
We wanted to attend last year's InfusionCon, but it was sold out by the time we got serious about it. We decided not to make the same mistake again this year.
Ashday was proud to help sponsor the 2013 DrupalCamp Phoenix, and Russell Keppner once again served as one of the emcees. However, instead of presenting sessions, this time Ashday provided an all-day Training Lounge during the camp. This followed the same formula as our previous mentored drupal video training, but on a drop-in-and-out whenever you want basis.
