Contributing back makes

Drupal better for Everyone

Drupal Give

At OpenConcept, we use Drupal in all of our work, but we also contribute back to Drupal by writing modules, themes, participating in forums, lecturing in conferences, organizing Drupal events and anything else we can think of.

This page displays the highlights of our give-backs to the community. It is our part of the /drupalgive initiative.

Drupal Camp Ottawa 2014 Sponsorship

Once again we're happy to sponsor Drupal Camp Ottawa. We'll have more posts on this soon.  There are a number of sessions we're looking forward to presenting and as always look forward to meeting with others in the Drupal community to work together to strengthen the code that glues us together.

Clean Markup module contributions

Clean Markup is a module that aims to clean up, enhance and facilitate the customization of markup for Drupal core and several popular contrib modules. Besides making HTML markup cleaner and easier to theme, it can also be used to increase the accessibility of pages.

OpenConcept regularly pays Matt, a co-maintainer of the module, to contribute bug-fixes and add features to Clean Markup.
