In July I went to D4D Boston 2011, a Drupal conference with a focus on design. Even so, I was given the chance to do my talk on Drupal 7’s Field API. To my surprise, I had an audience of around fifty to talk to (or it at least felt like fifty).
The talk was based on blog post I wrote for Evolving Web about Poutine Maker, my custom Drupal field that lets users design crazy poutines. (You can see the formatter in action here.)
Overall, it was a fantastic experience. I’m a little shy at conferences, so it was nice to meet people after who had seen my talk (even the guy who kept calling me Tarvis).
Also, I’m totally going to DrupalCon London at the end of the month, which I’m super jazzed about. Co-op jobs aren’t supposed to be like this, but I am definitely not complaining.
(By the way, if you want to work with me and the cool people I work with, Evolving Web is hiring.)
