Drupal Camp Ohio 2014

Drupal Camp Ohio was very beneficial. It was nice to collaborate with other developers and companies.

This Drupal Camp had a good turn out and was able to offer three sessions at at time. Which allowed them to have a variety of sessions, from beginning with Drupal 7 to intermediate/advanced topics, and Drupal 8.

We had a small turnout at our first Drupal Meetup, but we had good conversations and good feedback.

The first meetup we had provided a short presentation on Varnish + Pound Caching.  After reviewing the feedback from the attendies we decieded to have the next Meetup geared for Drupal beginners.

It was nice meeting everyone and we look forward to next month!

Trail 9 Drupal Website and Twitter Integration

Trail 9 Drupal Website and Twitter Integration

Trail 9's website has recently upgraded from Twitter's widget to use Drupal's Twitter module.

Drupal's Twitter module offers more features and flexibility compared to Twitter's widget. Here are a few of the features that make it more flexible:

  1. Format your tweets on your website to use your custom design.
  2. Allow newly created blog posts to be automatically tweeted to your Twitter account.
  3. Create custom layouts for your twitter feed.

I would recommend everyone that uses Drupal and Twitter to upgrade to the Twitter module. It is awesome!
