Bringing Osmobi to the Drupalcamp near you!

December looks like another month full of Drupalcamps. Siruna will be represented on many of the coming Drupalcamps as sponsors and where possible I will try to give some demonstrations on how to get the most out of Osmobi

Three of the drupalcamps where you will find us soon are

Drupalcamp New York

On saturday 5 december you will find me at Drupal Camp New York. The venue quickly reached it's maximum capacity so a big crowd is expected to talk about Drupal!

Drupalcamp Chicago

The week afterwards you there is Drupal camp chicago. If you are attending, hopefully I will meet you during one of my proposed sessions: Making mobile websites with drupal

Drupalcamp Chicago Dec. 12-13, 2009

Drupalcamp Ghent (Belgium)

And yes, the Drupalcamp Ghent will be the first Drupalcamp in Belgium and will happen next to the Siruna offices!
To bad I will not be there , but my colleagues certainly will be present!

I'm going to Drupal Camp Ghent 2009
This is one of the nicest Drupal Camp badges I have ever seen... Some similarity with the NYC badge cannot be denied ;)

More events...

If you are organizing your local Drupal event, drop me a not if you are searching for sponsors or speakers... Building the mobile site of your event can also be an option!!

Mobile Drupal @ Drupalcon Paris: Free beer and mobile sessions

Last week I had the chance to attend my second drupalcon. Just as in Washington I represented Siruna in order to create some awareness around mobile... and of course Siruna.

If you are not sure what I am talking about, you will probably remember our stand and the free Hoegaarden.


Drupalcon Paris

Drupalcon Paris website on Mobile (check out the schedule page!)

Today I have been working a bit in order to demonstrate the Siruna technology by making the Drupalcon Paris website mobile!

I must say, although this is a quick demonstration, the results are very good!

Take a look at: http://drupalcon.siruna.com for the mobile version of the site.

This can be very usefull to check out the schedule on your mobile phone:

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

3 step plan for refreshment at Drupalcon!

When you are attending Drupalcon, keep an eye out for this flyer that you can exchange for a free Belgian beer ;)

While you are there ask for a demonstration of our alpha-release the Siruna Drupal mobilization service!!

Since Drupalcon DC I have had the change to present some sessions on Mobile Drupal at different drupal camps accross the US including the New York drupalcamp, Denver and this month in LA.
Most of my presentations are gathered in this blog, but can be easily viewed on Slideshare.

Summer has been busy so I did not get too much time to upload my presentation for Drupalcamp LA!

Here it is!

The secret behind the Mobile Tools module

It has been some time since I first released the Mobile Tools module on the Drupal repository (with thanks to greggles to guide me through the process of obtaining CVS access). Since its first submission I had a quick cycle of bug fixes and feature requests, often due to my impatience to release my code to the community... I have been trying to answer / fix these bugs and fixes as fast as possible. So I hope I did not loose to many among you during that dark period.

In terms of adoption we are currently clocking on stats of 206 installs and I am glad that people are keeping up by using the latest version of Mobile Tools... Looks we are heading towards a healthy uptake :) ...

With 1.8, the module has reach a fairly stable release, so time to draw some attention to the module to get some feedback or some stories. So here is quick overview of the functionality of the module... I'll try to keep up the documentation on the Drupal doc page for the module: http://drupal.org/node/459686. Let me know if things are not clear!

Slides presentation on Mobile Drupal @ drupal camp colorado

During the weekend of 27 and 28 June I attended the very successful Drupal Camp Colorado. A lot of cool people around and what struck me most was the enormous quality of the presentations! So thanks to the organization.

I had the luck to give a short session on Mobile Drupal and give some demonstrations. That Mobile is gaining more interest was shown by the response of the attendees: approximately 8% of the audience had already made a mobile website, while 90% was planning to make a mobile website in the future.

Presenting the "basics of making a mobile website" at DrupalCamp Colorado

The schedule for DrupalCamp Colorado has just been announced, and I am glad I can make the trip to Denver to present a session on Mobile Drupal. With already around 160 registered users and the persence of the Ubercart conference this will be a real interesting gathering.

Siruna @ Drupalcamp Colorado 2009 (Mobile Drupal)


Drupalcamp colorado 2009 will take place the 27th and 28th of June, jointly with Ubercamp 2.0. As the biggest DrupalCamp of the region, this will be the place to be for Drupal developers who like to gather and share ideas.

Siruna has decided to sponsor DrupalCamp colorado with a bronze sponsorship and propose a session on Mobile Drupal (titled: The Basics of making a mobile site with Drupal). This session will contain basic information on making mobile websites, and will more particularly demonstrate two new Drupal modules that are currently in development:

  • Mobile Tools: Helping developers in getting traffic to the mobile site, theme switching and enhancing the permission system with a mobile context.
  • Siruna module: A module in heavy development aiming at the integration of the Siruna transcoding service with Drupal.
