Kris has been busier last week than any other week I can remember in the recent past. The Worx Company has been involved in the Oklahoma State Chamber of Commerce this past year, working with them to get several websites up in Drupal. There are several branches of the Chamber, I've learned, and we are working on two branches and the main Chamber of Commerce website. Ultimately, the goal is to get their web manager fully trained in Drupal, so they will be self sufficient, and will be able to manage all of their websites.
FOWYDB - almost looks like a "bad word", doesn't it? Well, it is something we have been telling ourselves the last couple of days. Focusing on what WE do best. The Worx Company started out as an .asp shop, and when it merged with Meridian Data, well, not much changed. For several years, we stuck with our .asp content management system.
What was it Dries said at Drupalcon? Top two "most difficult things" for both novice and expert Drupal users were 1. finding skilled Drupal designers and 2. finding skilled Drupal developers. We have noticed that as our company grows, we are running into similar issues. Especially #2 - finding skilled Drupal developers has been difficult - in the Oklahoma web industry, Drupal isn't a common platform. Most people have never even heard of Drupal, so we have put much of our efforts into "evangelizing" Drupal in the community.
After spending time investigating the different open source communities, find out why we are sure that the Drupal CMS was a good choice for us and our clients.
Well, it's about time! I finally got a new version of Imagefield_gallery available for the masses today. I'm not the best with CVS yet (though I'm getting better) so it took a bit of work and some well placed tutoring from Addison Berry and others in the community. However, all the great functionality I've been working on made it in and I'm excited to get some feedback on it.
