Talking Accessibility at GRWebDev

This October I was invited to be a speaker at GRWebDev, a leading development Meetup group here in Grand Rapids, MI. I love sharing my knowledge of Web Accessibility with the local tech community, so I jumped at the opportunity. Many thanks to Sloth over at SlothWerks for extending the invitation!

Come for Education, Stay for Community - BADCamp 2019

BADCamp has long been a staple Drupal camp for Hook 42. We’ve spent countless hours behind the scenes over the years making sure we can not only participate in the amazing group-effort that goes into planning an event of this magnitude, but also be present as a sponsor, speakers, and attendees. This year was no exception to the amount of crazy that goes on before we get to Berkeley, and we have a lot to take away from this years' event.

Web Accessibility at BADCamp

Our team has always been engaged and hands-on when it comes to web accessibility and inclusion. Through learning, teaching, auditing, remediating or supporting others doing the same, providing information access to all is at the core of how we run our business. Inclusivity, equality, and global access is still very much a work in progress for humanity. Any step that Hook 42 can take towards improving inclusion and access, you bet we’re going to do it. This year’s Bay Area Drupal Camp (BADCamp) is no exception.

The Return From GovCon 2019

This year, Drupal GovCon had an amazing turnout. So great that the registration was at full capacity and had to cap attendance at 1,500 people!

Our team had an amazing time exploring Bethesda, from the conference grounds to the thriving community around it. While there we enjoyed conversing with the community, and forging new relationships. We learned many things, and shared our experiences with many others as well. Overall, it was a great environment for exploration and growth.

Reflections of Drupal Camp Chattanooga 2019

For years, community members from Chattanooga talked about their local camp. These community members routinely support other camps, through attendance, volunteerism, and by giving talks. It was our time to return the favor.

Hook 42 not only sponsored the event, but delivered a training and two sessions. From our team Jonathan and Adam attended, and they really enjoyed the time there.

Community, Development and Leadership at DrupalCon 2019

It’s been almost a month since DrupalCon 2019. We can’t believe how time flies! While we were there, we had a variety of things going on at many different levels. Just as fast as the time since DrupalCon has flown past us, our time in Seattle felt like a tiny blip.
