rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Experience Express in Austin: Decentralizing the Web at SXSW Interactive

With its flurry of sessions, events, concerts, and exhibitors, it’s a wonder anyone gets any sleep at SXSW, the giant gathering of minds, auteurs, and performers in the capital of Texas. Here in Austin, there’s always a sense that everyone is on the verge of the next big discovery, whether that’s the hottest new cryptocurrency or the finest taco purveyor. During my second year attending SXSW Interactive, I managed to catch a few fascinating sessions that consistently dwelled on the liminal areas of virtual and augmented reality, blockchain technology, and the decentralized web. This year, with the majority of attendees eager for never-before-seen insights, panelists and presenters did not disappoint. The Experience Express made a stop here in Austin for a few days to showcase a few of the sessions that came on Pi Day and to highlight one hot topic — the decentralized web. In this column, we’re in…

Decoupling Drupal 8 Core: Web Services in Core and the Serialization Module

If you have decided to decouple Drupal, after conducting due diligence with regard to assessing the risks and rewards of decoupling Drupal and understanding how best to decouple Drupal in 2018, it is essential to understand how web services in Drupal 8 core and their dependencies undergird all decoupled Drupal architectures, regardless of the application you are implementing. In this Experience Express column, we’ll explore the process of decoupling Drupal through the lens of core modules in Drupal 8. In Drupal 8 core, four key modules, when enabled, collectively facilitate the provisioning of RESTful APIs out of the box: HAL, Serialization, REST, and Basic Authentication. Some of these modules provide foundations that underpin important contributed modules also useful for Drupal such as JSON API, RELAXed Web Services, and GraphQL. For instance, while the JSON API contributed module depends on Serialization, it does not depend on REST. After examining these modules,…

Experience Express in Chicago: Inclusion and Drupal 8 in the Spotlight at MidCamp

Every time I leave the Windy City, I feel something pulling me back. This time, it wasn’t the gusts that whip around the skyscrapers towering over Lake Shore Drive. Instead, it was the renewed excitement I could feel in the air on the heels of last Wednesday’s release of Drupal 8.5, and the mood at MidCamp, held at the Lincoln Park campus of DePaul University, was celebratory and animated. This impeccably organized Midwestern Drupal conference attracts attendees from all over the country, and all were here to learn about Drupal 8. It’s easy to see why. MidCamp’s eclectic lineup of sessions and trainings spanned all levels of experience with Drupal and straddled a surprising range of topics, including Drupal for site builders, theming in Twig, writing RFPs, technical leadership, and diversity and inclusion. In this Experience Express column, we’re stopping in Chicago to see just what all the enthusiasm is…

Talks, Thoughts, and Texas: Viget at SxSw 2018

While Olympics highlights and Valentine’s day memories are fresh in our minds, I’m here to ease you into the impending month of March. Not for the basketball madness, or St. Patrick’s day traditions — but for the tech tradition of SXSW and next week’s festivities. And in what will be our third consecutive year with multiple talks, we’ll be sending our own small crew to Texas — including some fresh faces — for the knowledge, for the sharing, and for the free things they hand you while walking around. In addition to our two workshops, here are a few talks, and thoughts on SXSW 2018: Thought: “I think the implications of AI are growing and being discovered at, or behind the pace of, AI tech which makes it an increasingly interesting, albeit a little scary at times, technology to learn about and work with.” – Ian Brennan, Viget Developer Talk: Regulating AI:…

The Top 5 Career Regrets (and How I’ve Experienced All of Them Already)

Here are the top five career regrets via a Harvard Business Review study and how I’ve experienced all five in my short career already: I wish I hadn’t taken the job for the money. I wish I had quit earlier. I wish I had the confidence to start my own business. I wish I had used my time at school more productively. I wish I had acted on my career hunches. I can empathize with every single one of these. And, I wonder what numbers 6-10 were (and some of the other hits on the list). Regret can be a powerful motivator [PDF Study] and a helpful emotion to have, if used wisely. But otherwise, it can be a total waste of time. In many ways I feel like I’m too young to have experienced all of these already but I have. I’m not sure that’s a good or bad thing, but, the…

If You’re Inlining SVG Icons, How Do You Deal With Unique Titles and IDs?

Just inlining SVG seems to be the easiest and most flexible icon system. But that chunk of <svg> might have a <title>, and you might be appying IDs to both of those elements for various reasons. One of those reasons might be because you just want an ID on the icon to uniquely identify it for JavaScript or styling purposes. Another of those reasons is that for accessibility, it’s recommended you use aria-labelledby to connect the id and title, like: <!– aria-labelledby pointing to ID’s of title and desc because some browsers incorrectly don’t use them unless we do –> <svg role=”img” viewBox=”0 0 100 100″ aria-labelledby=”unique-title-id unique-desc-id”> <!– title becomes the tooltip as well as what is read to assistive technology –> <!– must be the first child! –> <title id=”unique-title-id”>Short Title (e.g. Add to Cart)</title> <!– longer description if needed –> <desc id=”unique-desc-id”>A friendly looking cartoon cart icon…
