Saving the web with responsible websites

Posted by Computerminds Drupalgive on July 22, 2015 at 10:06am

I recently read the trending article The Web We Have to Save, by blogger Hossein Derakhshan ('Hoder'), who had been imprisoned in Iran for six years. In the article, he talks about how the internet had changed over that time. Quality can be drowned out; what is important is diluted in amongst the trivial.

Personally, I believe any expression of culture will reflect the society it flows from. The internet is a global society, so incorporates so many different aspects of humanity - different, good, and bad. What does the internet say about our global society? I believe that we should all take responsibility to some extent -- especially those of us in the business of websites and content on the internet! Can we contribute to a more responsible internet? Are we equipped to do so?

Core Patch Contribution

Noticed an occurrence of "the the" in the help documentation, so grepped for it in the code base and found quite a few. This patch touches lots of files.

May 2015 Southern Colorado Drupal Group

Posted by Monarch Digital Drupalgive on April 23, 2015 at 2:53pm
Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - 18:3021st Century Library - Room B 6

This is usually one of the most popular and useful meetings of the year. Anyone who went to DrupalCon LA will come in to talk about the most insightful, future-facing and sometimes ridiculous things at DrupalCon.

  • If you went to DrupalCon LA, come with your major learnings and observations.
  • If you weren't there, you can get a great idea of what online videos you might want to dive in to.

Location. We're at the great 21st Century Library, but I was able to get the bigger conference room, B6.

p.s. Mark your calendar for DrupalCamp Colorado 2015 on June 20 and 21. Want to help? Please volunteer.

April 2015 Southern Colorado Drupal Meetup

Posted by Monarch Digital Drupalgive on April 10, 2015 at 4:13pm
Wednesday, April 15, 2015 - 18:3021st Century Library - Room B 2

The latest and greatest in Drupal and the rest of the web technology world.

As Drupal has become more of an enterprise development platform, interfacing with the rest of the web technology world is becoming more common and critical. In fact, Drupal 8 itself is incorporating many technologies not developed by the Drupal community.

Latest & greatest. With all of your contributions, we'll review the latest and greatest topics featured at DrupalCon LA, sharing all of our opinions on it: "Go", "No Go", or "I'll Wait".

Most of Monarch Digital will be at DrupalCon. At our next meeting, we'll be reporting on the best from DrupalCon LA. If you're going, please plan on sharing also.

Theming. The Drupal 8 theming layer is completely different and based upon TWIG. We'll overview the differences in theming in Drupal 7 and Drupal 8. See how you would actually develop a theme in Drupal 8.

Real life conversions. Have you converted a site to Drupal 8 yet? Share your experiences.

War stories. If we have time, we can share some stories from the field on technical anomalies we (all) have recently encountered. "I just entered some new content to the body of my page and now it white screens!"

Time and location. We have all been enjoying the great meeting rooms and great internet connectivity of the 21st Century Library. You'll see that this meeting is later in the month that usual. It's getting more difficult to find available rooms as the community discovers this great facility.
