Sublime Text 2: Drupalized

For quite a long time I used as my development IDE; but, as time went on I found it quite bloated and extra features I didn't need. So I gave Sublime Text a try since it's all the rage by those who use it. Sublime Text is amazing because it's so simple, yet extendable. At first I was put off by a few things so I figure I'd share my setup and packages to turn Sublime Text into your IDE powerhouse!

Drupal 262: Breaking Down Drupal

Last Thursday we had our second Drupal 262 user group meeting on "Breaking Down Drupal." The goal of the meeting was to simplify and explain all of the terminology found in Drupal: regions, blocks, menus, nodes, taxonomy, and users.

Migrating WordPress to Drupal

Right now two of the most popular open source content management systems are WordPress and Drupal. WordPress is very simplistic and easy to roll out, which is why there is nearly 80,000,000 websites using WordPress. Then you have Drupal which is a more robust content management system that needs a little bit more love to get things moving. I migrated my personal blog from WordPress to Drupal so I can have more control, from performance to marketing specific content at visitors. I'd love to do write a WordPress vs. Drupal battle blog, but I want to share how easy it is to migrate. WordPress is a great platform to start but it is not future proof for large companies, things that Drupal does provide.
