BADCamp 2012 Trip Report

I recently attended BADCamp 2012 in Berkeley, California. This was my first Drupal camp experience and I’ve had some time to put together my thoughts from the experience:

Bad to the Bone: Our BADCamp session submissions

The Web Chefs are going to BADCamp. In addition to being a Contributing Sponsor (we’re doing fun things with our booth. Stay tuned!) and providing some awesome training sessions on PHP and Node.js, we have also submitted a few talks.

Our two training sessions are full, but you can take a look at our proposed sessions below. If you feel like taking a look and voting for your favorite ones, we’d love your support. Also, feel free to leave feedback on our proposed sessions in the comments. We do love hearing feedback on session submissions.

Announcing Drupal Day Austin!

We are proud to announce Drupal Day Austin!

In lieu of a DrupalCamp Austin in 2012, we are bringing you Drupal Day Austin. Think of it as a DrupalCamp jam-packed all into one day of lightning talks, mini BoFs and BBQ! Yes, BBQ. We like to call it “mini camp.”

Training the Web Chef Way

When the Four Kitchens’ team of web chefs develop a new training course, our guiding principle is: Provide a strong return on investment. You invest the time traveling to the training, attending, and afterwards, practicing the skills acquired. You also invest the energy and effort necessary to develop new skills. You place your trust in the trainers to guide you from where you are now to where you need to be. In return, we invest our time, energy, and best effort in creating training experiences that give you a stronger, more relevant, skillset and the confidence you need to apply it.

UT Austin DrupalCamp

This Friday, May 18th, the University of Texas at Austin will host their first UT Austin DrupalCamp.

We’re excited to announce that our very own David Diers will be presenting two talks at the event!

Drupal Mario Bros: Best Practice Workflows for Developing and Maintaining Drupal Websites
A best practices session for anyone currently working with, or planning to work with, Drupal.

Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM at FAC 10

DrupalCamp Austin goes mobile

With DrupalCamp Austin coming up this weekend, the web chefs have been working overtime to make things a bit easier on everyone at the camp. We’ve relaunched the website so that it works on everyone’s mobile devices while they hustle about between sessions. Instead of building a separate app, we’ve baked this mobile friendliness straight into the website using responsive web design.
