People want intranets that are fun and easy to use, full of compelling content relevant to their job, and enabled with social and community features to help them discover connections with other teams, projects, and colleagues. IT wants something that’s lightweight and flexible enough to respond to the needs of the business that won’t cost a fortune.
That’s why Drupal + Alfresco is a great combination for things like intranets like the one Optaros built for Activision and why we had a record-breaking turnout for the Drupal + Alfresco webinar Chris Fuller and I did today. Thanks to everyone who came and asked good questions. I’ve posted the slides. Alfresco recorded the webinar so they’ll make it available soon, I’m sure. When that happens, I’ll update the post with a link. Until then, enjoy the slides.
[UPDATE: Fixed the slideshare link (thanks, David!) and added the links to the webinar recording below]

I mentioned it on Twitter yesterday but I definitely wanted to spend more than 140 characters saying thanks. If you missed the tweet, what I’m talking about is that Packt announced that I won the Author of the Year Award for the Alfresco Developer Guide.
Earlier this year they had a nomination process which resulted in readers choosing me as a finalist. Getting that far was really cool and I definitely want to say thanks to the readers of the book and the blog for making that happen.
The book was certainly a team effort. I had a great team of technical reviewers, and they were instrumental. I think it’s also important to recognize my firm, Optaros, because the project couldn’t have happened without their support and encouragement. The entire Alfresco team also got behind it in one way or another and that was important to the success as well.
Alright, enough said. I’ll quit before I start working my way down the family tree. Maybe Twitter’s length restriction really is the best thing for an acceptance speech. Thanks, again, to everyone involved!
