I’m attending DDCLA 2011

Just a quick note to say that I am attending Drupal Design Camp L.A. 2011 at the Spring Arts Tower. You can view WizOne Solutions’s DDCLA 2011 attendee profile.

It’s shaping up to be an exciting mini-camp. You may wonder what someone calling himself a Web Developer, generally meaning programmer, is doing going to a DesignCamp. The truth is…I’m also a themer! I’m pretty capable of turning designs into working themes. Thing is…I have been doing an awful lot of programming lately, and I wouldn’t mind shaping up my theming skills. After all, I do do a lot of theme tweaking.

And, as always, if you can track me down, feel free to hit me up with Drupal questions. You can even ask about non-design/theming-related topics! I won’t tell.

See you there.

The new WizOneSolutions.com has launched!

I’m happy to announce the launch of the new design for WizOneSolutions.com.

After many months of anticipation, it’s here! There’s quite an interesting story behind this new design, too.

Around the end of summer last year, I asked my good friend Andrew Sepic over at Think Up! Design if he could help me create a better design for WizOneSolutions.com than the one you’ve seen for the last forever. He created what you see now. As time went by, in my spare I gradually put it together, implementing it as a Thematic child theme (thanks ThemeShaper), coding the CSS and ensuring it worked well in all modern browsers (sorry, IE 6). It’s such a relief to finally get this out of the way, and it’s a big step in terms of giving a real picture of what I can do. The old theme had the unfortunate effect of casting my programming skills in a mediocre light. I think this one does them some more justice 🙂

I’m not done yet, of course. I’ll keep improving the site, particularly the Portfolio area, so keep an eye out for more to come over the next few months.
