I recently did a joint presentation at DrupalCamp Colorado with Jeremiah Wathen, my project management counterpart at Colorado Interactive. We talked about Pacific, Colorado.gov’s Drupal-based hosting platform for hundreds of state and local entities, and what Colorado.gov has learned with each increasingly ambitious project since the initial decision to adopt Drupal.
This week I spoke at the DBUG Drupal meetup in Denver about an unglamorous but very important thing that comes up for any technologist: turning around applications that have, for one reason or another, left their users unhappy.
I also had no idea that DBUG meets in a TV studio and is broadcast live on public access TV and the web. Thankfully, my doctor has me on some really good blood pressure meds.
My talk covers some of the strategic, technical, and personal things that people can do to fall back in love with their Drupal applications again. (The non-technical aspects are really applicable to any software.)
(I start my talk at the 19 minute mark.)
