Upgrading from Drupal 6

Drupal 6 made its debut in February 2008. For eight years, it was supported, upgraded and patched. In February 2016, support for that version of the Drupal content management system finally lapsed. Drupal 6.38 was the last version released.

I worked for a start-up company. They pulled the trigger on seeking funding a little too fast. They were out there talking up their product while it was still vapourware.

Five Projects I Would Love Love To Do

I am proposing expeditions into application development. These are cool ideas that I would like to run with to not only make use of my technical skill, but also fascinate and drip me.
