It was a great trip, and conference.&nbsp; Very different then previous conferences I've been too.&nbsp; Much less hard-core coding, and a great deal more general users.&nbsp; Some of the highlights are meeting <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/rcthayer/sets/72157615040600176/"><img width="214" vspace="10" hspace="10" height="320" align="right" alt="" src="/sites/default/files/DSC_2365.jpg" /></a>some of the maintainers of the modules I've used the last few months to much delight.&nbsp; To my surprise they run the range on age and demography.&nbsp; One fellow was 13 years old and has come to be a pretty popular figure in the Drupal community.&nbsp; Others are a bit older, and as I found only live a few hours away.&nbsp; In the end, I had a great time hanging out with some old, and new friends, and feel a great deal more connected to the larger Drupal community in general.&nbsp; My book wish list is three, or four books deeper coming home as well, which can't be a bad thing!</p> <p>I also had the chance to take some pictures the last full day I was in town.&nbsp; It turned out to be 70 degrees, and while a little overcast in the morning, the afternoon and evening gave a wonderful blue backdrop to some great photos.&nbsp; I walked about 9 miles total that day, and snapped about 300 photos.&nbsp; Have a look at a few of the ones I enjoyed</p> <h2><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/rcthayer/sets/72157615040600176/">DC Photo Walk Early March 2009</a></h2> http://www.thayernet.com/content/drupalcon-dc-wrapup#comments Artistic Photos Drupal Photos Travel Tue, 10 Mar 2009 01:34:33 +0000 clint 32 at http://www.thayernet.com DrupalCon DC http://www.thayernet.com/content/drupalcon-dc <p>Greetings all,<img width="264" vspace="10" hspace="10" height="84" align="right" src="/sites/default/files/drupal.org_.png" alt="" /></p> <p>You all know I'm heading out today, but many have asked &quot;What is <a href="http://drupal.org/">Drupal</a>?&quot; so I thought I would try and fish out an <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drupal">semi nice answer</a>.&nbsp; Just think of it as a bunch of code written by lots of different people in kind of co-op sort of way.&nbsp; This core code (Drupal 6.10) allows a quick basic site, but then also allows developers the ability to extend the functionality of the site with more code called modules.&nbsp; <a href="http://drupal.org/project/Modules">There are 1,000's of modules</a> out there already, and more coming every day.&nbsp; It's pretty exciting to work with at the high &quot;I want to run a web site&quot; as well as the &quot;I want to write modules, and extend the core&quot; avenues.&nbsp; Anyway... that's my attempt to explain.</p> <p>I'm really looking forward to learning more about Drupal to use it both at the department which runs Drupal 5 for <a href="http://www2.medicine.wisc.edu/home/">its main site</a>, as well as <a href="http://thayernet.com/content/league-women-voters-dane-county-web-site">other stuff I seem to be playing with</a> these days.&nbsp; Also looking forward to <a href="http://caseysoftware.com/">some networking</a> and hanging out with <a href="http://eliw.com/">some old friends</a>.</p> <p>Okay... I'm about to head off to the airport, but I'll try and post more if I can.&nbsp; I'll also be micro-blogging on Facebook as well.&nbsp; If I get some time, I might also do some micro-blogging on <a href="http://twitter.com">Twitter</a>, but I'll post info on how to find that content if I go that route.</p> <p>You can also keep an eye on this <a href="http://twitter.com/drupalcon">conference twitter feed</a>, or visit the <a href="http://dc2009.drupalcon.org/">conference website</a> as well.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://www.thayernet.com/content/drupalcon-dc#comments Drupal Mon, 02 Mar 2009 16:53:15 +0000 clint 29 at http://www.thayernet.com
