Hipster + Yuppie = Hippie Labels are so like yesterday, man. Thought of this today. It is an interesting redefinition of what it means to be a modern day Hippie. Do you think it describes the group of people who used to be part of the modern day counterculture movement and are now having to shoulder responsibility as they grow older? Hipstersism didn’t or hasn’t really taken off like the counterculture movement of the 60′s thou. Maybe it isn’t really a fair reinterpretation of the word. I liked this post a week ago. In a time when a constant flow of information is the norm. People can’t be expected to be on top of all the ‘news’ all the time. There will be that week when you miss the latest meme or that...
Here is a video from Drupal Camp Austin 2010 that I found really interesting, both when he gave the talk but also again recently. It is extremely helpful with my work these days. So posting it here. It is about getting early estimates right when doing Web Development, but in particular for Drupal Projects.
Boston PHP The SF Meetup Group The Los Angeles PHP Developers Group PHP London AustinPHP Group Seattle PHP Meetup Group Dallas PHP Bangalore PHP Users New York PHP Meetup Group Atlanta PHP User Group Austin is still number #5!! I got this info from the meetup page that tracks all the php related groups. A lot of the groups that show up on the list aren’t true PHP user groups, so I had to weed these out. This list is based on the size of the groups off of their meetup pages.
Jenkins is awesome.
I made this logo for the intro of the PHP group techvideos, but I think it makes a pretty good new logo. This is the one that I would like to get on shirts. Hopefully our recruiter will come thru!
At least until I get that PS3 I have been meaning to.
As soon as I get the desk delivered I can work on austintechvideos again. My laptop isn’t quite setup and I don’t have the room I need at the moment to do the work. I am thinking that the site will initially be a WordPress site, just because I can deploy a new WP site in little to no time. This will make adding new content easier. Long term thou I am thinking of moving to a framework. Probably something forked from the CRUD applications we are doing at the PHP Meetups. I think that a custom built site will allow me to tweak it and build in some really cool functionality that will allow the project to expand. Not that I couldn’t do it all with WordPress, but this will be easier, and I will have to worry less about security if I build it...
