Classic Graphics is providing us with a fantastic facility with a large training room and four smaller conferences rooms. Each with projectors. Classic is also providing print marketing materials and access to their talented creative department for the event.

Drupal Association is providing a community cultivation grant which is funding all catering needs for this event so our attendees never have to leave the facility for food.

Command Partners is providing a $100 Apple iTunes card to giveaway and marketing skills to help promote the event.

Thanks to these sponsors for their generosity. Without them, the event just wouldn't happen. There is still time to register for the event. Head over to http://charlottedrupaldrive.in and register today!

Use Drush Autocomplete with Zsh

Update: I had the filename as drush.autocomplete.sh, but the filename should now be drush.complete.sh. Brent noticed this. The info below as been updated as such.

Brent Dunn pointed me to drush.complete.sh, which I didn't even know existed. Brent and I both wanted to give this a go in Zsh since we use oh-my-zsh, but drush.autocomplete.sh is setup for bash.

"Is Drupal Right for You?" Presentation

I presented "Is Drupal Right for You?" at the Feb 5th, 2014 CharDUG meetup.

Many web development firms, non-profits, and individuals wonder if Drupal is the right platform for their websites and web applications. Drupal has a fantastic community and rich eco-system, but how can one know if Drupal is the right fit?

Mark Shropshire brings his Drupal consulting experience to help you understand the good, the bad, and the ugly in the Drupal world.

Disable Drupal's Automatic Cron

Drupal 7 was released with an automatic cron option which is handy for those who do not have shell access or a way to enable a Unix type cron with their web host.

At Classic, we use Jenkins to trigger cron via Drupal's cron URL. Because we have cron scheduled, we have no need for Drupal's built-in automatic cron which defaults to run every 3 hours. Also, we sometimes have to disable the Jenkins cron during deployments to make sure that that cron doesn't execute until all code has been deployed successfully.
