Has it been that long?

Accordin' t' Drupal.org, it has now been four years an' five days since I first joined th' Drupal community. My how time flies, an' how much has changed since then.

Am I done yet?


I like givin' presentations. I really do. But this has been quite a conference season this year; certainly me busiest e'er. Four conferences in four different states, an' nine presentations. And th' year isn't even half o'er yet...

Here's what I've been up t':

Help build a better PHP IDE!

There's been a fair bit o' talk about PHP IDE's o' late. That's not surprisin' given how useful they can be. (Really, folks, vi can only take ye so far.) Most o' th' attention has been focused on th' big laddies: Eclipse an' its derivatives (both free an' commercial), Komodo, an' NetBeans. Eclipse an' NetBeans be both Java based, an' Komodo is based on Mozilla's XUL platform (which also runs Firefox an' company). The sharks will eat well tonight! I've been bouncin' betwixt them fer a while, an' ha'nae really been satisfied with any o' them. I usually refer t' Eclipse as th' one I hate least. :-)

There's a new contender t' keep an eye on, though, that is worthy o' notice: KDevelop.

Important DrupalCon session change!

Just t' give everyone a heads up, I have made some changes t' one o' me sessions, with a chest full of booty. Based on th' feedback I received afore, me session on Object-Oriented Drupal has been updated. It seems no one wanted t' hear about th' basics, as they already knew them. Fire the cannons! :-) I will instead be focusin' on bounty patterns, OO bounty philosophy, an' how it applies (or should apply) t' Drupal, me Jolly Roger It's too late t' get changes into th' printed program, but I have updated th' session page on th' DC DC web site t' reflect th' new focus.

So if ye were hopin' fer a session on basic PHP OOP syntax an' concepts, um, sorry. If ye're lookin' fer an intermediate t' advanced session on how t' use OOP well, then this session is fer ye.

I'll see ye in DC!

A hostile working environment?

So first I thought it were bein' odd that Palantir's private IRC bot has a factoid fer me that reads "Great on challah!" Then I noticed this:


I wonder if I should be worried...
