Promet Source Support Developer Kabenla Armah shares his gameplan for DrupalCon LA in 2015. He came, he saw, he deftly avoided dairy products.


Normally I’m sitting at home in Iowa, rocking the boxer shorts on the couch. The Xbox controller is in arm’s reach. Or maybe I’m tearing up a single track course on my mountain bike. But this week, none of that. This week is different.

It’s DrupalCon, so you know I have to put away the games and pack up the power brick so I can join in the fun. I ran through this quick Q&A about my plan for DrupalCon with Promet's marketing team to help understand my goals for this year's big show.


This year's North American DrupalCon brought the community together in Los Angeles and brought everyone closer to the release of Drupal 8!


The Drupal community gathered in Tinseltown for the 2015 DrupalCon, and Promet Source was there to partake in the all the lights, camera and action.

Check out some of our photos from the event below!

An example of a proof-of-concept module that melds AngularJS with Drupal.


After spending the weekend going through a rather excellent (I thought) video overview course on AngularJS, my head was spinning with the possibilities when it came to building Drupal sites that were much more responsive in terms of loading and displaying content. So, I decided to start working on some proof of concept modules that would help me better understand how to effectively meld these two tools together.

Still Not Sure?



It’s national library week and we could all probably learn good habits from those fastidious and oh-so-organized people in our lives: librarians.


Ahh, libraries. The smell of books, the sounds of pages turning, the incessant Karaoke singalongs of the library workers. OK, maybe the last one is a bit far-fetched, but we all know it’s founded in some truth. The fact remains that libraries are a hallowed ground of information consumption and organization.

That organization doesn’t happen by dint of chance. No, there’s a lot of hard work that goes into maintaining a collection, and these steps taken by your local library workers might inspire us to approach our websites with the same set of diligent hands. Get sorting, people!
