Hacking Komodo for Drupal development

By , October 25, 2009

Today I gave a quick talk at the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit, ostensibly called 'Hacking Komodo for Drupal development'. A better ( but less interesting? ) title might have been "here are a bunch of ways you can extend Komodo easily, with Drupal-centric examples". I've attached a PDF of the slides and a zip files of the samples I showed.

As well, I just published a Drupal extension for Komodo ( well, the start of one ) on the ActiveState community site:

Mercurial support in Workspace

By Troy Topnik, October 7, 2009

There's been a lot of development going on in Workspace. We've recently added the Mercurial (hg) support our users have been asking for. Workspace users now have a choice between distributed and centralized source control management tools.

We asked Shane Caraveo -- Lead Developer and Product Manager, Developer Services -- some questions about these recent developments, and posted the results on the new Workspace blog.

By , October 2, 2009

Fast on the heels of last week's Komodo / Acquia stack post by Robert Douglass, I just noticed a neat tip from Kevin Bridges on hooking up api.drupal.org in Komodo to do automatic lookups of the Drupal api docs based on your current selection:

By , August 23, 2009

I just noticed a new interesting extension for Komodo that may come in handy for people used to a Dreamweaver-like workflow ( ie working on a project locally and then uploading to a file server ):

Pop the Bubbly - ActiveState launches Business Training for Perl, Python and Tcl.

By Liliya Apostolova, August 12, 2009

Development teams can finally hone their Perl, Python and Tcl programming skills with the new Business Training program ActiveState launched today. There are a lot of benefits to encouraging developers to polish their programming skills.

One obvious reason is that the development team could become better experts in coding with Perl, Python and Tcl. For their organization, this means a couple of things:
