The webinar about Promet’s implementation of the taxi dispatcher system using Drupal and Phonegap by Andy Kucharski is out.
I’m excited to share that I am one of the panelists! On the webinar is also another Solutions Architect of Promet, Chris Bartlett, who now I call the map master or the Cartographer (which we both agreed sounds better than Solutions Architect). Being part of the acquia webinar was pretty exciting. But aside from me being excited to be part of it, Andy Kucharski gave everything away the in and out of how we developed the software. Hope you’ll find it useful!

Yay! I presented the second time around at CDMUG (Chicago Drupal Meetup Group). The first one was last year at the Drupal Camp about drupal migration event. This year, I presented Drupal As A Framework For iOS Mobile Development
I talked about how drupal can be used for iOS mobile development. Here is a short presentation
I was surprised today when I received an email from drupalapc.com about the cancellation of Drupal Asia Conference in Sydney, Australia. Below is the email:
We are sorry to announce that the Drupal Asia Pacific Conference and the Full Code Press website competition have been postponed to a later date.
It was our hope that we could organise the event to coincide with the Open CeBIT conference in May. However the challenges imposed by a tight deadline and the logistics of integrating with the CeBIT expo have been too much to overcome.
We are still committed to running a Drupal Asia Pacific event and a website building competition, but with greater lead-up time to plan speakers and arrange venues.

I learned about DrupalCon a few days ago and got excited. Right then and there I started on checking on how to process my papers. Unfortunately (or shall I say fortunately?) I will not be able to make it. I really feel pity about those people who already prepared for it. Just praparing for the Visa application is already time consuming, how much more when you have already reserved for plane tickets and hotels?
Hopefully the next one will be a success and hopefully they learned something from it. I still want to feel positive about this event so I’m still looking forward to the next Drupal Con in Asia.
I had this discussion today with our QA lead for a Drupal project. I’ll try to translate it in english the best way I can
QA: lola (a term we call each other)
QA: parang wla na akong nakitang error (I think I did not encounter any error)
QA: kasi drupal functionalities namn ginamit nyo (just because you used drupal functionalities)
Me: achievement yan lola!!! (That’s an achievement lola!!!)
QA: maliban na lng sa sizes ng navigation box (except for the navigation box sizes)
QA: at links na may page not found (and pages not found)
Me: meron? (there was?)
QA: uu (yes)
Me: san? (where?)
QA: yung xx page sa xx affiliate (on the page for xx affiliate)
Me: ah ok
Me: nagcleanup ako ng xx pages (I cleaned up the xx pages)
QA: maganda yung reason ko no? wlang errors kasi drupal functionalities yung ginamit (My reasoning is good, right? that there were no errors because you used drupal functionalities, right?)
Me: di ko n nkita ung last statement (I actually did not see your last statement)
Me: n record lang ung una (the only recorded part for me was the first [statement])
QA: kaya kng ako sa inyo (that’s why if I were you)
QA: drupal na lng gamitin nyo? (use drupal instead)
Me: mag drupal n lang for life (use drupal for life)
Me: pag iisipan ko yang mabuti (i’ll think carefully about that)
QA: wag ka na mag cake php (don’t use cakephp anymore)
Me: bihira lang ako ma 0 error eh (I rarely get 0 errors)
QA: pero mag te test pa rin ako (I’ll still make some tests though)
QA: malay mo…may error (You’ll never know, there are still errors)
Me: cge lang.. para may reason nmn ako n di solid ang drupal (go on, so that atleast I have a reason not to use drupal)
I never heard any bug reports from her today though. For the record, I did extend a module for that project which took me a week or more to finish. But still, thanks to drupal we were able to create this project in just 2 weeks! It could probably took us like a month if I had to do it using cakephp.
