Welcome to iRolo.net

iRolo.net has gone through another makeover. I have finally upgraded to Drupal 7, and I have added a bunch of modules that should make administering the site a lot easier.
Check back often for changes.

Patience, Professionalism and Permanence

Three things to remember when participating in an online community

I have another article up 'How to Represent Your Organization in Online Forums' hosted by my employer ForeSite Technologies.

The paper covers what you should and shouldn't do when representing your company, charity or school online. Specifically, how to maintain a professional reputation in a world that is both immediate and permanent.

Drupal Camp Western MA

I'm on the intertubes!

Recently, I made two presentations at the Western MA Drupal Camp. One presentation was for people new to Drupal and the other was a very advanced look at the framework for database administrators. I have posted my slides on the camp website. Also, the first presentation was streamed live and is available for viewing. Feel free to take a look at the links below.

Who's on first?

If you are interested in SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) you may want to read a recent whitepaper that I wrote 'Writing for the Web - Guidelines for Prominent Content' hosted by my employer ForeSite Technologies.

The paper goes over what content a search engine is likely to look at first and how to optimize that prominent content without looking like you are trying to game the system.

It's official

For years, iRolo.net was both my personal and professional website. Since the site makeover, it has become purely a venue for my professional publications. However, I have always had a lot of fun, non-work-related content that I wanted to share. Therefore, Anna and I are announcing annadrew.name. Feel free to hop on over and take a look.
