Consultant Hobbies: Being Social

Hi Internets. 

This year marked my third consecutive trip to DrupalCon as both a developer and a volunteer social media-er (the millennial in me wants to say “Social Storyteller”). DrupalCon is a global conference that boasts several thousand attendees and highly educational, opinion-stirring sessions and BOFs. Thankfully, I work for some great organizations that have allowed me to balance my full-time duties (learning all the things) with volunteerism.

Sound Bytes from Drupalcon Portland Adam Edgerton Thu, 05/23/2013 - 08:50

First off, yes, I realize it's "sound bite", but given the context, "byte" sounds more applicable.

The Toads have been at Drupalcon Portland this week in force! With a sponsor booth to manage and two different parties to organize, we've been busy, but I've managed to squeeze a few sessions in as well. Here are some top quotes and takeaways along the way:

How I Lost 10 Pounds on the DrupalCon Diet

When I started my new position here at Metal Toad, I was a comfortable 160lbs. After three months of being able to eat at whatever random food cart I wanted, I had ballooned to 180lbs. Believe it or not, I like to play basketball and an extra 20lbs can murder your jump. I don’t want the comment section to devolve into ‘What a healthy weight is’ or anything, so let me just say that 160lbs works and 180lbs doesn’t. My Wii Fit Plus says I’m overweight so that should be satisfactory to the data heads.
