Recurly Presentation - Twin Cities Drupal Camp

I'm giving a presentation tomorrow (July 20, 2013) at Twin Cities DrupalCamp! Come and check out the module for integrating Recurly with Drupal.

I gave this presentation last month at DrupalCamp Colorado 2013 too.

BADCamp: Flexible Image Galleries with File Entities

I'm speaking at BADCamp 2012! Attached are my slides for this talk.

Excerpt from BADCamp.net:

Complete image gallery solutions for Drupal 7 are hard to find. Sure there's always the Taxonomy + Image node approach, but what you want is something that feels cohesive, with functionality like:

- Bulk uploading of images.
- Controlling image order within galleries.
- Images that can be reused site-wide.
- Proper attribution and associated data (photographer, copyright, caption, etc).

Facebook OAuth - Twin Cities (and Sacramento!)

At Twin Cities Drupal Camp, I'm presenting on Facebook OAuth, a module for querying Facebook information from Drupal. Here's the slide deck and the sample module I'll be talking that queries data from Facebook, hope to see you there!

June 9, 2012: Giving the same talk at Sacramento DrupalCamp. Slides attached!

New Demos Site Up

I actually put this site up last week and tweeted about it then, but for long-term reference I'd like to announce that my Demos site at http://quicksketch.org/demos is now back up and on Drupal. So far I've got demos up for some of the major modules I've writen: Form Builder, AJAX Poll, Image Resize Filter and Insert.

Direct Drupal 5 to Drupal 7 Migration in 24hrs

With Drupal 7 around the corner, a lot of Drupal developers and users are surely looking at their lingering still-on-Drupal-5 sites and thinking, "surely I might be able to skip Drupal 6 and upgrade directly to Drupal 7?"

Most all experienced Drupal developers would say (to end-users), "not possible". This is because modules only provide upgrade paths from one major version to the next, and just about all Drupal modules received large rewrites between Drupal 5 and Drupal 6. Without help from module developers, it's not extraordinarily difficult to do a direct Drupal 5 to Drupal 7 migration, but you are going to be building out a lot more things manually.

Of all the projects I'm working on, only my personal blog was still on Drupal 5. As this is rather embarrassing, I figured at least it would be a good experience with direct migration from D5 to D7. Here are my experiences and the approach I used in this upgrade.
