Zivtech is in Minneapolis for the 2013 Nonprofit Technology Conference (13NTC). We're proud sponsors of the conference's Drupal Day for Nonprofit IT Professionals, where Alex is delivering two lightning round presentations. You can also find us exhibiting at this year's Science Fair.
This weekend 9 members of the Zivtech staff will be participating and competing in Startup Weekend Health Philadelphia 2013, which, according to their site, ”centers on building a web or mobile application that could be the basis for a credible business. After 500+ Startup Weekends world-wide, this will be the first dedicated solely to healthcare’s unique problems.”
We love Responsive Web Design, and we love Drupal. But do they love each other? After working on a number of RWD and Drupal projects this year, I'm happy to report that they get along just fine. Though "Love" might be stretching it a bit.
I've worked on many "Site Rescue" jobs, in which a client comes with a sick, but often brand-new and expensive Drupal site, desperately needing it fixed in a number of ways. Through this work I've seen a lot of patterns of "worst practices" employed. I enjoy the challenge of this cleanup work, while feeling bad for the clients who have been taken by incompetent vendors. I refer to these sites as "lemons" and I've made a study of their characteristics.
Zivtech was represented at DrupalCon London 2011 by Howard Tyson, who gave a session with former Zivtecher Justin Randell on Node.js, and Tim Plunkett, who sprinted and spread his awesomeness.
