Announcing the Four Days of Four Kitchens at DrupalCon Austin!

We are thrilled that DrupalCon is coming to Austin in exactly one month from today! We want to share the best our city has to offer with everyone visiting, so we are putting together four exciting days of activities aptly called the Four Days of Four Kitchens, or #4DaysOf4K for short (with hashtag!). These are some of the activities we have planned for you the week of DrupalCon Austin.

Why SXSW Interactive is good for business

SXSW is just about to start. In fact, it’s already started: SXSWedu, a relatively new offshoot of the SXSW mega-brand — kicked off yesterday, stretching the overall event to a full two weeks. That’s fourteen days of sessions, workshops, parties, and business cards. Piles of business cards. Fistfuls of business cards bursting from your pockets and spilling onto the beer-soaked floor of a temporarily rebranded bar on Sixth Street.

Jekyll event schedule

While working on the DrupalCamp Austin schedule, I was surprised to find that there weren’t any Jekyll templates or plugins available for event schedules. Since it was relatively simple to put one together I want to share some code we generated in the process of hosting the event.

Like many community-driven conferences, DrupalCamp Austin is a multi-day, multi-track event with lunch breaks, keynotes, and evening events like parties. These templates were built to easily handle all of that, so if your event is similar they will probably work for you. Read on for a breakdown of our Jekyll-powered event schedule.

Countdown to SXSW 2013: Four Kitchens Session Proposals

The SXSW Interactive Conference continues to expand and cover a wider variety of topics every year. While this keeps the conference on the cutting edge of new technology, it also means that certain topics are lost, never to be resurrected again. In the last few years, topics about Drupal have been slim to none. However, the relevance of Drupal as a CMS is still as important as ever.

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.

Privacy Summit Austin: Recap

Four Kitchens was very happy to participate in the Application Developers Alliance Privacy Series in Austin on Monday night.

There were some really cool insights we learned, which you can find below. But most importantly, we’re very happy to see an organization educating developers on good practices regarding privacy policies.

The main idea behind this Privacy Series is to listen and educate developers, so that we can use that information to take it to policy makers.

Why is it important?
