Productive couple of months

I have been a bit distracted the last couple of months.  As they say, "time flies when you're having fun," and that has been the case for me.  I have been to busy with things to remember to come back here and write about my experiences.  I have had the distiction of starting my first colaborative Drupal project during the last month and a half.

Head is spinning

Yes, I know it's been a while.  I can now say I'm a professional Drupaler now.  I'm working with a guy I met at the Fox Valley Meetup.  I'm doing a lot of PC/Server?Networking for him as well as some Drupal so I am now paid to do Drupal.

LNMP stack for Drupal 8

In my previous post i mentioned taking notes on how I'm building my new LNMP stack to support my Drupal 8 sites.  Below are those notes. I noted the commands used as well as a few links to get more info for some of the functionality.

Drush 7 for Drupal 8

Over the last couple of weeks I have started playing with Drupal 8.  So far it's been a pleasant experience (surprisingly) though originally I had issues with getting it installed.  I tried using drush dl but it would not work (when used it would only download the latest version of Drupal 7).  Turns out Drush 6 (the version I was currently at) does not support Drupal 8.

What a difference 6 months make

Yes, it's been 6 months since I last posted.  It is not that I haven't been doing anything Drupal, or have given up n learning, or just decided to stop writing.  It's because I have a tendency to get "tunnel vision" and when that happens time slips away from me. I will try to do a recap over the trial and tribulations  have had with regard to Drupal.
