Collection Support & Digital Initiatives Manager for WCLS. Formerly a web developer & educational technologist at Western Washington University. Background in technology management & interactive media. MLIS, University of British Columbia SLAIS 2009.
I have built a hobby site for sharing writing with friends, helped to redevelop Western's home page in Drupal 7, and worked on the Integrated Laboratory Network Drupal site from 2008-2010 in Drupal 6, customizing themes and doing a little module development. I co-founded this group as well as the Science Applications group on g.d.o.
I began working with Drupal in late 2008.
I built my own in FileMaker Pro in the late 90s, and have done some customizing and development with Wordpress.
Hi Jennifer, Thanks for the welcome! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in person, soon.
Thanks for the welcome note. I was hoping to make it to tonight's meeting, though I noticed it may be changing dates. I'll watch for updates today to see if it gets moved or not. I'm not sure how active I can be, but I wanted to come by and check out a meeting.
Typo 3 is a huge CMS that rivals the best commercial types such as Huffington Post uses. It does have a steep learning curve with its own markup language that is a bit daunting for New Users. It is also hard for users period who have no or little esperience.
Other than that it does everything but toast hotdogs.
Hey thanks for the message. I will definitely look more into drupal and start watching my dvds I actually have not even opened it yet I was trying to sell it cause i had no idea what it was. It is very expensive so its gotta be good the whole set is priced at 725 maybe its a sing that I got this.
Thanks for welcoming me to this group, Jennifer! I would really have loved to attend the meeting this coming Monday but I would be flying to San Francisco 2 days from now and would be staying for 1 to 2 weeks. I am looking forward to the upcoming Drupal meeting though. Thanks for organizing this group! :-)
It was enjoyable and educational. i hope to be at the next one too. Yes, LinuxFest is going to be a blast as well, so hope to see you there!
Thanks Jennifer - And I'd love to be there. But: I just discovered I need to be at SMX in San Jose'.
So save me a seat at the next one.
The greatest challenge with any thought of migrating from Wordpress: Ease of use, and the community. Chris from MonsterDevelopment.com does things with Wordpress that are illegal in 13 states and 9 countries. That's one of those elements that makes me think twice.
So much to learn. So little time.
Thanks again. Have a slice-o-pie for me.
We had a nice showing of about 25 folks. It was perfect. Hope to see you at the next one. Mia
Hi Jennifer, welcom. Well I hope you and your son can make this Saturday's Meet up for a house concert in Anacortes. A great setting for all ages. So glad you joined in...see you soon. Mia
