- What is Kalatheme?
- Does this play nicely with Panels/Context etc?
- I don’t actually have any experience with Panels In Place Editor. What functionality does that provide the theme?
- What version of Bootstrap are you using?
- Is Sass-ability built in?
- On the Project Page, it says you can use other Bootstrap themes. How does that work?
- You mentioned a subtheme generator. What is that? How does it work?
- Is this a base theme that people should sub-theme? Or can people use it out of the box.
- What are the Drush commands that work with Kalatheme?
- What do you see as the target audience for Kalatheme?
- Do you know of any sites using Kalatheme that we can look at?
Have you heard of/used NodeSquirrel?
Use "StartToGrow" it's a 12-month free upgrade from the Start plan to the Grow plan. So, using it means that the Grow plan will cost $5/month for the first year instead of $10. (10 GB storage on up to 5 sites)
As the Drupal project matures, new technologists surveying the landscape of available technologies may not pick Drupal as their platform of choice. Chapter Three has met this challenge by encouraging people at the beginning of their careers to explore Drupal and share our love of the platform.
Two years ago, Terence Yang showed up at the BADCamp registration table on Saturday morning and ended up being a stellar volunteer for the entire weekend. The one request he had at the end of the camp was to learn more about Drupal.
The decision was easy to bring Terence on as an intern. We know from past experience that community volunteers make a great addition to our office.
BAVC's team of videographers Chris Pizarro and Nelson G. Navarrete created a short documentary describing Terence's experience at Chapter Three.
Only 7 precious days remain until applications close for sessions, training, and scholarships at DrupalCon Austin. Help us spread the word about this deadline to your co-workers, user groups, and twitter following-- DrupalCon Austin is shaping up to be our biggest conference yet, and you can help us ensure anyone has a chance to be part of it!
Prior to each conference, trainers submit proposals and the training selection team, a global and local track chair, work with the Program Coordinator to select the trainings that will be offered. Many top-quality proposals aren’t selected, simply because there are more potentials submitted than can be offered. To make the path to training more clear, here are some insights into the selection process and how to best present your training for consideration.
One of the ways that Palantir gives back to the communities that support the open source tools we use is by helping to organize and sponsor local and regional events. One upcoming event that we’re very excited about is MidCamp, a three-day celebration of all things Drupal here in Chicago March 28-30.
MidCamp is a brand-new Drupal event designed to educate and engage Drupal users and evaluators throughout the Midwest. It will feature three days of training, curated sessions, and sprints for those looking to increase their Drupal knowledge and for the opportunity to rub shoulders with internationally-renowned Drupal experts.
One of those experts is our own Larry Garfield, who will be co-presenting MidCamp’s Saturday keynote along with Lullabot’s Jeff Eaton. They’ll be providing a tour of the upcoming Drupal 8, talking not just about its new features but also its new philosophy.
For those looking for a more in-depth look, Palantir will be offering two half-day training sessions on Friday for Drupal site builders and module developers who want to be able to hit the ground running with Drupal 8 once it’s released.
And with several Palantir team members having proposed sessions for MidCamp and planning to participate in Sunday’s sprints, you’ll be sure to see some of us around all three days of the conference.
Located at the University Center in downtown Chicago, MidCamp is situated within walking distance of many of the city’s tourist attractions, restaurants and nightlife.
But what sets MidCamp truly apart is that it is a community effort, organized and supported by volunteers and sponsors from a wide variety of companies and organizations throughout the region. Among those volunteers is our own Andrea Soper, who is leading the planning team. Other Palantir team members helping out with various aspects of the event include Nate Striedinger, Bec White, and myself. In addition, we’ve also thrown our financial support behind the event as one of its Gold-level sponsors.
Whether you’re an existing Drupal user, developer, designer, site builder, or are someone new to the community, you won’t want to miss out on MidCamp. Visit www.midcamp.org to learn more and purchase your tickets today.
We look forward to seeing you there!
1. So Peter, what's your role at Mediacurrent, both internally and client-related?
I am a "Drupal Developer", so I take care of site builds, writing custom modules, consulting on how to accomplish clients' goals, and a bit of theming here and there.
2. We're so glad to have you! Give us an idea of what professional path brought you here.
I got started with computer programming when I was in high school, then was exposed to Web development right after. With the exception of a few side-quests, this is what I've been doing ever since.
3. How did you first get involved with Drupal?
Here at Drupalize.Me everyone is contributing time to Drupal 8. For my part, I'm turning my attention back to the Drupal Ladder. I was heavily involved in this project when it started a few years ago, and it remains a great resource for bringing people up to speed on the technical aspects of contributing to Drupal Core. The Drupal Ladder is a collection of lessons—organized step-by-step like a ladder—that walk you through the basic tools and processes used by the Drupal community. If you want to contribute to Drupal 8, the Drupal Ladder is an easy place to start, and your first step should be the Drupal Core Ladder. (There are numerous ladders for different topics; stick with the Core ladder initially.) Here are two ways you can dive in:
Ryan Weaver is the single biggest contributor to the Symfony2 framework's documentation (which is excellent, check it out!), a self-described Symfony evangelist, and lead at KnpUniversity.com, makers of fantastic PHP tutorial screencasts like this one on using Composer to include PHP libraries in Drupal 7.
