Best Practices For Managing a Webdesign (Drupal) Company

28
Jun
2010

Managing a proffesional Drupal company, or any webdesign company is definetely a hard task. There are always many ways where things can go wrong and one day you can realize that your succesfull company that you dreamed about has disappeared in the mixture of unhappy employees, not satisfied clients and a shame from doing things simpy wrong.

Learning from the experiences of others can be very beneficial if you are willing to learn and make changes to the way you do things. There is a saying in my country that a wise man is learning from mistakes of other people, while a fool is learning from its own mistakes. I was lucky enough to be one of the few hundred people that were able to squeeze in to a fully packed room on a DrupalCon San Francisco session where owners, founders and managers of some well established Drupal webdesign studios shared their experiences, things that they did right and things that were completely wrong.

DrupalCamp Vienna 2009 Report - Part 2

03
Dec
2009

To continue with our report from DrupalCamp Vienna 2009, I would like to fill in with some of the sessions Jozef wasn't present at. Not that he would be just hanging around but we have decided to split up as the different topics interested each of us to bring as much as possible from the DrupalCamp Vienna. There were always two parallel sessions running on Friday and even three parallel sessions on Saturday during whole day. So there really was what to choose from. And to keep it more funny (... and healthy :-)) the sessions were in other rooms, other floors, even other buildings. So it was also very nice cardio training :-). First session I would like to cover was from Saturday - "Theming Drupal - The gap between PHP Developers and Designers". Raphael (@rapsli) opened one of the hot topics: whose responsible for area between design and development. He described Drupal's theming system and showed some best practices of Drupal theming. The conclusion is that Drupal developers and themers support each other work hand in hand.

This Friday and Saturday (27 – 28 Nov) DrupalCamp Vienna was happening at the Vienna Tech University.  Over 200 Drupalists from Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech, Hungary, USA, Canada, Ireland, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Germany, Argentina and a few Austrians  ;) came to enjoy networking, learn new stuff and share knowledge. Here is a short summary from sessions I was able to attend. Note: slides from sessions will be uploaded to each session node on Drupalcamp Vienna website Yes it is a coffee machine with Drupal :) Source: Flickr In the first session cgalli showed us "How to build a Drupal website in 40 minutes". He presented the “usual suspects” modules like cck, views, imagecache and using a Marinelli theme he built a basic website for an Austrian football club.

2009

A while ago I published an article with 25 beautiful Drupal themes which become the most popular post on this blog ever. Since that time, tons of new Drupal themes have been published, so I decided to list another 25 new and beautiful Drupal themes.  Each theme has a link to its Drupal.org project page, a live demo link, and a basic description. BlogBuzz 2 column, tableless blog theme, that comes with three color schemes soft stone, coffee black and sky blue. It is lightweight and interface mostly done by CSS which means it is very easy to customize for your own style.
