Accessibility and Drupal Meetup

"The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."
- Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web

The Bay Area is fortunate to have Mike Gifford visiting from Canada and he carries with him unique perspectives on web accessibility. Hook 42 has organized an evening with Mike for conversation, collaboration, and thought leadership surrounding Drupal Accessibility. Read more about Accessibility and Drupal Meetup

Roping in TextWrangler

TextWranglin' Cowgirl lego with lasso

As Hook 42's Community Evangelist, I frequently venture into the prairie of Drupal documentation. It's not quite the Wild Wild West, but having a solid text editor in my holster keeps me saddled up and ready to ride.

Since I don't venture too far off the ranch into programming, I don't really have the need for a heavy IDE (Integrated Development Environment). I just need a tool that works on my Mac, writes with no fancy characters, and has the ability to do some basic formatting. TextWrangler definitely keeps me from squatting on my spurs, and the best part - it's free! Read more about Roping in TextWrangler

Baltimore!! We're Excited!

We're all thrilled to be heading to Baltimore soon for DrupalCon!

The Hook 42 team is on their way to the historic city of Baltimore. Its early days helped shape the narrative of America. This year it hosts DrupalCon North America and perhaps it will share a role in shaping the future of Drupal.

The team is excited to share what they are looking forward to, not only at DrupalCon, but also what the city might have in store for them during their down time. Read more about Baltimore!! We're Excited!

Stanford Drupal Camp 2017 - Ready, Git Set, Go!

Pale pink Drupal drop

I fully embraced the motto “go big or go home” when I started to think about my first solo community presentation for Stanford Drupal Camp 2017. I wanted to force myself to learn a subject well enough that I could explain it to others. I like a challenge, so I set my eyes on understanding the fundamentals of Git. My presentation slides can be found here: https://legaudinier.github.io/Ready-Git-Set-Go/#. Read more about Stanford Drupal Camp 2017 - Ready, Git Set, Go!
