"So, have you written any modules yet?"

on Fri, 04/04/2008 - 04:39

This is something I overheard a couple of times while sitting in the hallway between Drupalcon sessions doing email. Despite the danger of extrapolating based on too-few data points, I think it's fair to say that writing some kind of custom module (from scratch) is a "rite of passage" for an aspiring Drupal developer.

Yet the question is: what does "Yes" mean? It certainly means you got something done. But how good was it? Did it follow good Drupal coding practice? Did it do something novel, or implement something old in a new way? Was that way better?

Assisting Drupal Community Growth

Both Dries and I have agreed on one key thing with each other since our first conversations about Acquia: 18 months after we start our business, we truly hope the community at large thinks Acquia has been a great thing for the Drupal project.

Issues presented by Drupal's expansion

One of the challenges the Drupal community must to be concerned about is growing the number and quality of Drupal developers. Drupal downloads and content are both doubling annually.

Smart. (Not me; the car.)

I want one. My driveway (steep, snowy in winter) may not let me have it. My wife may not either.

It doesn't stop me from wanting it. Seriously.

Please. Everybody. View. This

It's an important awareness test. And be sure to watch to the very end. It's a message very, very, very close to my heart. I hope you take it seriously.

Under the Headphones - Really

Looks like several people got different types of photos of me spinning tunes at the Acquia party at Drupalcon last week. Thanks, Dries and Tim. ;-)

Oh, and there's another nice photo there: Can you see how I'm pretty obsessed with Acquia at the moment?
