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.
Well, it's that time again, when all the Drupal developers do their best to get together in one location and discuss the future of the platform and the web surrounding it. This time we'll be gathering in semi-rural Hungary... the city of Szeged. I've not had the pleasure of visiting ANY portion of Europe yet, so the wife and I will be taking some extra time both before the convention and afterwards to see the sites of Budapest and Vienna. I'm very excited.
Well, it's official, The Worx Company is going to be at Drupalcon Hungary! I personally am incredibly stoked to be going (if you can't tell by the exclamation point) and best of all, my wife is coming to expand her Drupal knowledge as well. As a Drupal-centric shop, we deal with the software every single day, but Drupal is expansive, so any chance we have to learn more we always try to jump at.
Well, yesterday officially marked the first alpha release of imagefield_gallery 2.0. This is a signficant upgrade in terms of administration UI, and I've got some new features in the pipe for this one as well. Unfortunately I made the mistake of leaving out some css/js files for the first alpha release and I've been fighting with CVS a bit to try to fix the issue. I'm hoping my most recent release will handle this problem.
I've been spending quite a bit of time rethinking the layout of the imagefield gallery administration system and what I'd like to do for Drupal 6. That's still a ways out but I've already started on the new administration interface and wanted to share some of my thoughts on its design and where it's going.
Oklahoma is a pretty small environment in which to run a Web Design & Development shop. Having been around in some form for the last 25 years gives us an edge in that department as we have lots of history, and track record to fall back upon, but that doesn't mean that some of our competitors don't do equally well. The difference, I think, is how we go about keeping our customers.
After more than two years of using Drupal rather extensively internally, we've finally managed to create and commit back to the community our first full fledged module: the Imagefield Gallery module. Development on the module is continuing today even though the first major release of it was over a month ago, such is the way with modules in many cases, there's always something new to add to the "to do" list.
