When I was presented with the task of writing my first blog for Cheeky Monkey, the first thought that came to my mind (after the initial ‘crawl under a rock’ impulse) was to write about one of my encounters trying to wrestle with the tiny Drupal demons that lift their heads every now and then. A problem-solution tutorial, I thought!

The speed of light has nothing on the speed of technology. Lately, whenever I am having a conversation with someone outside of our industry, most of my time is spent explaining all the acronyms I am using.
I think that most web development companies have a tendency to speak “geek” too much, and with the release of Drupal 8, we are once again moving into a market where we will be explaining technology to most of our clients (and potential clients).

In the world of programming whether you’re working in Web, Software, Data etc. you’ve more than likely heard of being “ In The Zone“ or “The Flow”. This zone is a state of mind where you have lost awareness of your surroundings, lost track of time, forgot you have children and a mortgage to pay.

Knowing what you want to do
The best question heard in the realm of web development is, “can this be done?” The simple answer is yes – usually, most things can be built into a website. The hard part is figuring out how to do it, and how long it will take. With that in mind, it’s usually better to worry more about what you want, as opposed to worrying about what may or may not be possible.
