If I told my 19-year-old-self I would be back in school in 2012, I would have laughed myself out of the building. But had I been able to convince myself of that fact, I would have told that jerk version of me I would attend a web developers conference for 4 days and ENJOY IT. Really? I can hardly believe it myself. But that’s what I did. And I had a blast!
Granted, this nerd conference was in Denver, CO. That helps. Also, my best-est friend in the whole wide world lives in Denver AND I got to take my man friend with me. Okay, so not soooo bad. But really, before knowing where the conference was or that the boyfriend could go, I asked to go on this trip. Sure did. I chose it. I absolutely love an opportunity to learn these days. I supposed it’s actually sad to admit that this is the first time in my life I really embrace learning. Not sure why I’ve avoided or at least denied this, but it’s be. Take it or leave it.
The conference was called DrupalCon. Drupal is a content management system used to build and maintain websites. It’s the best there is in terms of open-source cms. *Nerd alert* I know very very little about Drupal, relatively speaking, but I know a whole lot more now and it’s my goal to have it down by summer so I can help the team at UT switch our sites from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. It’s these sort of things that get me excited, folks.
More to come on my spring break and the REAL debauchery that ensued with #purpalooza. Stay tuned!
And yes, I understand the pathetic irony of using WordPress to manage my blog and not Drupal. As I mentioned, I’m not versed well enough. But I will be. Oh I will be….
