Well that was genius. I managed to install Drupal and start playing with it days before an SQL insertion exploit becomes public knowledge. On the upside, I now know how to manually update Drupal, and I am realizing that I'd like to have my own server so I can start doing more via command line again. It's a little more necessary with Drupal than Wordpress... It was very possible to do the manual update, but it would have been a lot easier via Drush or a simple CLI
Yesterday I went to the New England Drupal Camp event. It was awesome to start meeting some of the tech residents of PVD, and also to start exploring such a welcoming and diverse community. I know it's much better than it used to be, but I'm still thrilled to bits when I'm not the only girl at a technical conference. Plus I got to see Sarah, which is always a pleasure. Getting back to my CMS roots has been exciting and pretty darn fulfilling so far, I'm looking forward to going to the Drupal Meetup here in Providence in a few weeks! I even have a good project, figuring out how to get Drush onto my current site if possible, so I can start using it!
