Take advantage of iMIS Association Management System and the latest version of Drupal with the D7 iMIS Authentication module

12:18pmEAST
iMIS authentication module allows a Drupal admin to authenticate users using iMIS with ATS Drupal Web Service. The module would only allow users that exist in the iMIS database, exempted users (via the module's UI) and the “admin” (user 1).

Selenium is a tool for automating browsers that can blah, blah… That’s all jargon to disguise the real magic of Selenium: Selenium is a factory for building customized robots that can be unleashed to take on your website before your human users do. Yes, robots. Automated agents that can perform tasks. Still need convincing? Do your users click through your site? Yes, of course they do.

Drupal.org has many projects - modules, themes, distributions. All of these are open source and they need people. I have my share of module contributions but I have not jumped on an existing project. I know it's not really easy to join in so I'm sharing my overall experience with some tips on how to create and test patches.

2:13amEAST
I had a chance to work on some Drupal 7 upgrades in Drupal.org projects. I'm not contributing in the Drupal core but on the open source distributions and modules. Some people may be inclined to join on any effort but they don’t know how to get started.  Here is my experience on this and I hope to see more people join on these projects. First steps are not always easy so I hope this post helps.   First step is finding a project to work on.  I think that finding a project that needs help that I’d be interested in is more like a lucky draw. I don’t really like...

Adding Agility to your Organization

11:52amEAST
Over the course of the last year, Promet has been working hard to increase our agility . If you've been in any software circles during the last couple of years you probably have only heard the term agile. If you're anything like me you actually probably tired of hearing the word agile. Before we can really discuss what agile is I think it's important to have some background about why agile is important and why you should care. Almost all organizations start with a project methodology known as waterfall. Waterfall is a concept that Winston W Royce introduced in...
