As a company that focuses most of our attention on developing websites, we haven't done a great job of keeping up with the desktop publishing side of computing. There can be a fair bit of crossover, as far as design approach and content structure, but there are also some major differences between preparing content for online consumption vs a nicely designed hard copy layout for any given document.

Day 3 at BADCamp started out very much the same as my first two mornings in the Bay Area. I headed out early, made my way East through the waking streets of San Francisco, and hopped aboard the BART Train to Berkely, muffin in hand. I arrived at the now familiar campus of UC Berkeley and made my way to the Pauley Ballroom with a bit of time to spare before the start of... Read more
Check out Part 1 of my adventures in California.Apart from a simpler trip from San Francisco to Berkeley, day 2 of BADCamp started out much the same as day 1.

In mid-September 2012, we at OC heard about an upcoming Drupal event at the University of California at Berkeley called Bay Area Drupal Camp (or BADCamp).

Dylan had been developing web projects for over a decade when he joined OpenConcept in 2011, coming from the not-for-profit sector. While developing, he maintains a focus on streamlining the user experience for both website maintainers and visitors. Dylan is an active member of Ottawa's musical community and a hopelessly committed fan of the Ottawa Senators. He lives in Britannia Village with his wife and daughter (and his dog, Rawley).
OpenConcept was lucky enough to work with this passionate organization to help them develop a truly unique Drupal-based website. Just Vision had previously implemented another CMS solution and as such, had an existent, complex database that linked interviews from a diverse selection of 'peacebuilders' on a variety of themes.
I'm the first to admit that search engine optimization is important. I know that there is a lot to be learned about how to drive people to your site and ensure that they keep coming back to it. Two years ago it was estimated that there were 63 billion pages indexed by search engines. How will your site show up in the first pages of Google results if you don't get an edge over everyone else?
