I will be attending the Drupalcon in Copenhagen.
DrupalCon is the twice-yearly gathering of Drupalistas to learn about, discuss, and contribute to Drupal, networking with other Drupal community members in the process. Last year in Paris was an awesome experience, and I was very happy to hear that this year's choice was Copenhagen, a city I love and had the chance to visit more than once.
I've been working with a colleague for quite some time, we're both Drupal enthusiasts, and we decided to experiment on the creation of a video podcast for Drupal beginners.
Today we present you the result of this experiment:
Who's afraid of Drupal? Episode 0: Introduction to Drupal
Video Podcast (iPhone compatible):
The Podcast is available in both English and Italian.
Hope you like it, we would love to get some feedback! ￼^_^
Good news everyone! I took some time to make this blog a little bit more usable, as well as safe. I made quite a lot of improvements, here's a list of the most significant ones.
I've been running Drupal 5 for quite some time, and I've meaning to upgrade to Drupal 6 (version 12) since I had the chance to work with it and see the huge improvements the community has made to this amazing Open Source Project. It's now faster to load, better looking (improved theming), more secure, easier to use, supports OpenID in its core, and a lot of other small goodies that make it irresistible. It's the most important update, as well as the least noticeable by the end user.
See that nice facebook icon, just down the login form? This module allows you to login on my blog using your Facebook login and password. Sweet.
- After logging through Facebook Connect, you can create a local account
- You can see which of your Facebook friends already have an account on this blog
- You can publish a customizable message on your Facebook feed announcing that your have created an account here
- You can invite your Facebook friends to create an account here
For this purpose I'm using the excellent Facebook Connect drupal module.
I have been told that you had some issues when submitting a comment, something like "2+2=5". Now, a part from the obvious admiration that I have for the Orwellian work, it was a bit of a problem, especially when trying to prevent spam comments and fake users.
That is why I installed the reCaptcha module
It's actually pretty nice, fast and secure. You can reload the captcha and download an MP3 file with an auto-generated voice that reads you the text if you find it difficult to interpret.
