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.

Roping in TextWrangler

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.

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.

Stanford Drupal Camp - What a Difference a Year Makes

Reflections from Last Year

Last weekend I had the opportunity to experience Stanford Drupal Camp for the second time. This year's camp shows how far I have come, since at the 2016 camp I knew virtually nil about Drupal. I had only done some mild content entry for Burningtoken Records and had a few weeks of Drupal Easy Academy under my belt. I felt out of my league, as I was not part of the industry or this elusive "community" I had heard so much about.

Drupal 8 multilingual websites training at BADCamp by Hook 42 and Lingotek

Hook 42 has run four Drupal multilingual trainings at BADCamp since 2012, which has been a lot of fun. The first three years were focused on Drupal 7 only, and last year our training was split between Drupal 7 and Drupal 8. At all of these trainings, we had the great fortune of having the Lingotek team help us mentor students during the self-paced training as well as give a quick peek at their translation software.
