As Trellon gets ready for a new release of AbleOrganizer this week, I wanted to share this video from Drupalcon Austin.

The Drupal community is hard at work delivering the next major release, Drupal 8. If you are already involved, your help is much appreciated. If not, but you would like to help with Drupal core development and are looking for a way to start, take a look at core mentoring hours. It's a great way for people to get involved, and there are several time slots each week that suit many people's schedules.
If you are doing a lot of theming in Drupal with Sass and Compass, there's a good chance your stylesheets rely on specific versions of gems to compile properly. Mixins and functions can change, and sometimes gems rely on specific versions of other gems to work properly.
Looking to write CSS for your Drupal sites faster and easier, and eliminate common defects? The first step probably involves choosing a CSS preprocessor to make your stylesheets programmable and accelerate the production of code. There are several out there which are widely supported, but the ones we really like to use are SASS and Compass. This article explains how to set up these tools for use within Drupal.
Drupal 8 is not far off from being released, and you may have heard some chatter about the differences in how you create custom modules. The reality is that, while there are some differences, it's not really that hard to wrap your head around them. This article provides a gentle introduction to creating forms in Drupal 8, and highlights the differences and similarities to how you would do this in previous versions of the platform.
This year, DC's two premier Drupal events, Capital Camp and Gov Days were combined into a single conference held on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. Trellon was proud to be a sponsor of this event, and I was particularly happy to attend. Not only was it a great Drupalcamp, but it gave me the opportunity to visit with some of my clients at NIH.
Last week, we rolled out the first major feature for CRM Core, called CRM Core Donation. It's available for download now from Drupal.org. You can also download an install profile with CRM Core Donation pre-configured, along with sample forms and data to play around with. This is exciting news.
Today, Trellon released new versions of CRM Core and CRM Core Profile. Both of these modules include new features that are important for anyone looking to build modules that use CRM Core as a backend for storing contact information.
