Archives for the ‘conference notes’ category

eaton, post-mobile

one pool of content structure content for remixing. (I’m starting to wonder if we need to work on an entirely different model of content ownership) model meaning, not presentation (and maybe not ownership, either)

higher ed unconsortium

wondering if any of my colleagues are here. they’re going to BoF after this…but I want to go to Eaton’s talk. interesting…someone from UC Davis. met several ppl at the Cascade Server conf from UCD. CAS/LDAP integration, incl user fields messy, hasty pluralism

asset mgmt in d8

co-lead of scotch initiative assets = js, css asking how many ppl are using sass etc in d7, not much happiness tho. strange thing for me is that I haven’t done any theme dev (like, at all) in D7, so everything I know is D6 still. assetic is a php library, part of symphony (sp?) […]

external data

since I saw Dave going in to the titanium/mobile app session, I thought I’d check out this. “world adult kickball association”? and that’s the site he works on. kickball.com, 60k visitors/day. going to be high level. [would like the front lights to be low so I can actually see his slides] – not going to […]

Style tiles with drupal

all the code is at github.com/abelb/drupal_styletiles/ (works with education clients!) funnymonkey, does distros for education. interior designer mood boards…all the way to pinterest. styletil.es need to ask Susan if she wants me or Justin to do this for OARS. adjectives technique didn’t work with stakeholders on one of her projects. Foundation – a frame work […]

Drupal in higher ed, a modular approach

I have plots & daydreams…. This room is about packed. Huh. Sort of a vendor presentation from ImageX Media, their major emphasis is higher ed. OpenEDU – not a ready-to-go product. (OpenScholar? OpenAcademy?) its features can be added on to other distributions, or can be used as a framework. (Portland State is their flagship client, […]

Responsive Web Design

Yep, back to this again. Conference blogging! Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit, this time, which long-time readers will know that I have been to this event several times…technically every time. It’s back in Seattle again, which is nice because it’s technically commute-able from my house, although a loooong commute. Last night I actually came up early […]

Atlanta trip wrapup, part the first

I’m going to do a separate post, quite likely on my work blog, about all the things I learned, want to try, etc. For that I want to be someplace where I can have my tablet sitting next to my work computer so I can look at my notes while I write my wrapup. But […]

vassar lessons learned

webdesign.vassar.edu “sample site” staffing: director, assistant director (& partner in computing), 4 designers, one developer “condensed core” in cascade. they do use includes for (some?) navigation so they can make system-wide changes w/out republishing all. they do custom designs for every site. but at the same time, they’re working on the content in the sample […]
