T'was the Night Before Drupalcon

Ok, so not really. It's actually two days till Drupalcon, and I'm up trying to get all the details together before I leave. The new website (yeah this one) has to go live before we get out of here, and I have to make sure I have all the gadgets and doo-dads and clothes I need to make it through a week in Boston. An entire week of wearing non-work clothes... I'm not sure I'll know what to do with myself.

I've had the great benefit of actually getting to speak at Drupalcon. This being my first year attending, I hadn't anticipated I'd actually get a block of time to speak, but it's happened and I'm quite stoked. We use a number of different technologies under our roof to build cool things for our clients, Drupal is just ONE of them. One of the other technologies we like to utilize is a product known as Open Laszlo. It's an open source (there's that phrase again) flash replacement. It actually outputs its final product IN flash, but the development platform is all open source so it's much more transparent what's going on, and as a developer it provides quite a bit of flexibility that you don't generally have inside a typical flash solution. One of the primary benefits is the ability to build your flash in componentized objects for easy re-use. Anyway, I won't give away the whole speech here, but if you're coming by Drupalcon, then I'd seriously suggest you drop in on my session, it's Monday, March 3 @ 2:30pm. Should be fun.

I look forward to seeing you all there!
