Back in January I wrote about using Drupal as a tool to create decentralized online advocacy campaigns and the upcoming release of the Activism module. We

The Activism module is a framework which we hope will standardize the way in which online advocacy tools are built and deployed with Drupal based websites. The module comes packaged with three modules out of the box:

The CMS Expo Learning and Business conference is coming up this week in Evanston, Illinois. This event is going to be interesting, in part because I will be presenting (more on that below), but also because the session track really covers a lot of bases.

I would like to welcome a few new members to Team Trellon as permanent additions to our development unit.

We are fortunate enough to be adding not one, but two people named Alan in a single month. That is probably not a record, but it is nice to only have to learn one name. The similarities don't end there, however, and we are happy to be having two technolgists with a serious commitment to the open source community coming on board.

I attended COSSFEST 2009 one week ago. Calgary as it turns out has an active opensource community for its size and the current president of KDE lives there!! I was the only person there who is actively involved in the Drupal community and earning a living from Drupal. However may of the developers were using Drupal in one way or another so I felt at home.

There are days when it seems like my job is Head of HR instead of Chief Internet Strategist. Trellon is hiring developers and project managers again. Check out our jobs page to see the open positions. If you have previously applied with us, please feel free to apply again.

There are a few reasons why we are hiring you may want to know about.

The adoption of CiviCRM in the past couple of years has boomed, and as of late we have taken on some rather large implementations of the CRM system for advocacy and international development organizations. The CiviCRM community has been lacking local user groups to support developers, administrators and persons interested in learning more about the platform. In response to this need, we have decided to start the first Washington DC CiviCRM Meetup group.

The Berkeley Drupal User Group's March meeting was a week and a half ago, but I'm still thinking about it, and now, in the "better late than never" spirit, I'm writing about it.

In just over a week I will be presenting at the Calgary Open Source Systems Festival (COSSFEST) on how to create Web 2.0 websites using Drupal. COSSFEST is a two day event featuring multiple speaking tracks and workshops demonstrating the use of Open Source to lower costs, and increase the capabilities and competitiveness of your business. Beginning in 2006 as an effort by the Calgary Linux Users Group and was called the "Calgary LinuxFest 2006".

Tomorrow I will be doing a presentation at the Washington DC Drupal Meetup on the Interface module and what it means for improved usability in Drupal. If you have not heard of this project we have been working on yet, you can read Michael's recent blog posts and view the screencast demo. If you are interested in learning more, come on out and see the demonstration.

Handling file uploads have always been a bit of a challenge with Drupal. Uploads work, so long as you want them to work exactly the way they have been implemented through CCK or the upload module. Changing this default functionality, in versions going back to 4.6, has always been something of a pain, involving hacks to core or building one-off upload fields to handle things the way you want.

In between sessions at Drupalcon DC I was asked if Trellon generally implements bookmarking tools such as, sharethis or addthis, for clients? I started to answer that we have no preference but stopped myself when I remembered a client situation with Sharethis. When the Sharethis component was installed it made page load times slow and it had some script caching issues.

SimpleTest, the test suite that Drupal started using, and then improved upon, has primarily been used to test modules in their own little sandbox, unaffected by the outside world, user data, or client-desired tweaks. This is perfectly fine when you're working on a controlled piece of code, like a module intended for release.
