Data migration: Importing images

On a recent project we had a situation where the client wished to migrate over all the avatars currently in use by their community. Upon investigate we found out that the folder contained over 4GB worth of data. The data was not segmented in such a way that we could identify the images we needed simply from the file structure. Of these images were only needed to obtain approximately 100MB worth, and the database schema told us which ones we needed.

Alan and Alan, Welcome to the Team

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.

COSSFEST 2009: A review

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.

DC CiviCRM Meetup this Wednesday!

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.
