HTML5 - What a Project Manager Should Know

HTML5 has become quite the buzz word lately, and it's important for people in both developer roles and project management roles to understand what it really is. The term has been around long enough that clients are aware of it, and may begin to ask "so how will you incorporate HTML5 into our website?" Not knowing how to answer this could be disastrous when attempting to gain the trust of a potential client.

Waterwheel version 1.3 released!

Finally got the time to put out the next release. I'm pretty happy with this one - I tied up a lot of loose ends and common feature requests. The most important feature is the circular support I added in. A lot of people desired to have a true infinite ciruclar effect (so there are no edges or walls), and I was planning on that for v1.4. However I was messing around with some ideas and in the meantime added in support for resetting the carousel to the opposite side very quickly when an edge is hit. Check it out! Here is the changelog:

Back at it

After a month or so development hiatus, I'm going back at it for a couple weeks in development. The feature requests have been piling up in the comments and I'm going to tackle them one by one. I think I'll start with the waterwheel carousel and try and get all the low hanging fruit taken care of before the big request... making the carousel completely circular. I understand why so many would like to have this, but the logistics of making it happen are a bit complicated. Do I duplicate the images in the DOM at the start of the carousel?

DrupalCon Chicago 2011 Recap - Part 3

I had a great time at DrupalCon. This was the last day of presentations before I had to catch my flight back to Philly. Because of my flight time I had to miss the last session track and any meet ups that night, but such is life. My favorite presentation of the conference was on this day: Drupal Commerce. I look forward to exploring all of these modules, ideas, and technologies in the upcoming months!
