Certified Professional

I wrote this as a comment in response to Dries' post about the Acquia certification program - I thought I'd share it here too. I've commented there before.

I've also been conflicted about certifications. I still am. And this is because I fully appreciate the pros and cons. The more I've followed the issue, the more conflicted I've become about it.

My current stand, is this. Certifications are a necessary evil. Let me say a little on why that is.

I did another video the other day. This time I've got a D7 and D8 install open side by side, and compare the process of adding an article.

Speaker Badge - Los Angeles DrupalCon 2015

I'm speaking at DrupalCon Los Angeles. 5pm, Tuesday 12 May in the 518 - Trellon room.

I first spoke about Constructive Conflict Resolution in Amsterdam at DrupalCon last year. I posted the slides, recording and speakers notes from that talk to the PreviousNext blog. 

An empty wheelchair at the bottom of the stairs

PSA: If you are a web professional, work in a digital agency or build mobile apps, please read this article now: Taking the social model of disability online

Done? Great.

"The social model of disability reframes discussion of disability as a problem of the world, rather than of the individual. The stairs at the train station are the problem, rather than using a wheelchair."

The Great D8 Accelerate Chook Raffle (a silly chicken silhouette and the Drupal 8 logo)

UPDATE 21 March 2015: I cancelled the chook raffle in favour of a bigger better crowdfunding initiative by the whole board of the DrupalAssocation. We are using crowdrise.

And in honour of the humble chookraffle - Everyone who donates over $100 via my page still wins a customised digital chicken badge with their name on it!
