It’s hard to believe that DrupalCon Austin starts in a week. Woohoo! We’re excited to have 5 of our team members going… 3 of them (Lindsay, Marc & Patrick) have never been to a DrupalCon before and I’m sure they’ll have a great time with sessions and BoFs and parties and their very first sprints.

For those of you with issues you want help with, read on… Read more about Prepping for DrupalCon Austin sprints: Sprint leads, component maintainers, experienced contributors & mentors, update core issue queues this week!
With new responsive websites, it's more important than ever to look at your site at different widths. But this can be time consuming and repetitive. Also, you may want to see how your dev site compares to your live site - for example "Did this small change I made to the css on one page change much on other pages?"

The Hook 42 team had a great time at Stanford Drupal Camp this weekend. Kristen and Aimee presented two sessions each and four other members of our team attended, Lindsay, K2 (Kristin), Marc, and Marc's 15 year old son Dean. It was the first Drupal camp experience for the extended team and they enjoyed the great topics, beautiful facilities, and the welcoming community. Many thanks to the Stanford Drupal community for hosting such a great event! Read more about Hook 42 Presentations at Stanford Drupal Camp
There comes a time in every Drupal developer's day when they realize they really don't need a field on some content type or other entity.

One of the coolest, but probably the least understood features of Pantheon’s cloud based Drupal platform is “SFTP Mode”. This article is all about SFTP Mode and why it is so useful. Read more about Pantheon’s SFTP Mode – A "Grey Area" with a Silver Lining
We use Pantheon for most of our projects and it is quite wonderful to use. In particular, the multidev feature provided by the Business+ level hosting is a "must have" for development teams. Not only do you get the standard dev => test => live development workflow, you also get separate sandboxed dev sites for each of your developers to work in.
