On Friday June 1st 2012, active local Drupal community members organized an informative event to discuss and promote the benefits of Drupal.
The Drupal Business Summit which took place in the heart of Vancouver, at UBC Robson Square, counted over a hundred attendees from varied backgrounds: marketing and media agencies, Government and private sector representatives, including web developers as well as several Drupal enthusiasts.
Since the launch of MyMacs.ca, we have been discussing ways to reach out to customers on the go with our fellow project collaborators at 612 Creative. We all know how popular and prevalent smartphones and tablets have become. Missing out on mobile offerings is missing out on opportunities.
A client of ours recently had a major business announcement and needed to update their site's theme and publish a node to coincide with the announcement. Had the announcement been scheduled for regular business hours I probably would have made the changes manually, but because it was scheduled for 5:30 am I needed a better solution.
First I tried talking a few co-workers into finally learning how to work with git tags on a live site, but that didn't go very well even without mentioning the 5:30 am bit.
Ah, Internet Explorer and transparent PNGs, a match most definitely not made in heaven.
Everyone knows that IE6 had poor PNG support, but all those problems were solved in IE7 right? Please? Sadly, while things did improve dramatically in IE7, if you have ever seen anything like this first image you've found the reason this IE7 PNG Fix module exists.
