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.


Natural Language Processing of Viget.com Articles

In a previous article, I talked about scraping article data from Viget.com. I pulled the title, author name, hashtags, date, and text from each of our posts. My goal was to analyze the text data using topic modeling and word embeddings, in an attempt to learn more about the type of content we are producing on Viget.com. Natural language processing is a large field of study and the techniques I walk through in this article are just the tip of the iceberg. I will go over preprocessing text data, vectorizers, topic modeling, and word embeddings at a high level. Hopefully, this article gets the wheels turning in your mind about how you too can analyze your large bodies of text and gain understanding with natural language processing. Unlike using Bayesian models to forecast customer lifetime value, these natural language processing techniques may have less-obvious use cases for business-minded readers. But…

Instagram Video Marketing: Everything You Need to Know

When Instagram rolled out, it was all about the pictures. Now, it’s more accurate to say that it’s all about the visual. Pictures, of course, are still a staple part of the platform, but video is holding its own, too.

An Epic Fortnite Gaming Rig for $1,001!

So, my 12-year old decided that she needed a more powerful computer for her favorite video game, Fortnite and I promised her, years ago, that we’d find a time to custom-build her own computer. Finally, I’ve been able to make good on my word! Purchase list! I wanted my daughter to lead the process end-to-end, so, she was responsible for not only finding the right parts but also price-comparing them and making her ultimate “purchase list” so that we could talk through it. We discussed the pros and cons of larger motherboards to allow for larger expansion opportunities and power consumption requirements for smaller (or more powerful) components, like the CPU or GPU. Starting to arrive! A little bit of math was required, to ensure that we got the right PSU (Power Supply Unit) to handle her components but it wasn’t that hard to put the master list together. What was…

YEN Retreat in Pictures

It’s pretty much impossible to communicate how amazing our first-ever #YENretreat was and how it literally changed my life… in so many ways. To start, there are 3 things that blew my mind: How amazing our community around YEN really is and how diverse their backgrounds and stories are. As a good friend mentioned, faith and hope (in a better tomorrow) were consistent themes from all of those in attendance, which is consistent with most of the larger community in the blockchain, bitcoin, and decentralized space. These things represent a brighter future and it can’t get here fast enough! The work that my brother has done to build, cultivate, and love on these folks is impossible to truly calculate and appreciate, so much so that I had to pull him aside and ask him to forgive me for not understanding the mountain of work that he’s put into building this company from…

Aspect Ratio Media Elements and intrinsicsize

If you need an aspect-ratio sized <div> (or any element that can have children), you can do it. Perhaps the cleanest way is a custom-property-sized pseudo-element that pushes the correct minimum height through padding-based-on-width. But media elements like <img> don’t have children. The <video> tag isn’t self-closing, but when it is supported (almost always), the content of it is replaced with a shadow DOM you don’t control. Besides, these are the only two elements that “size to an external resource.” So, how do you enforce aspect ratio on them when using a variable width like 100% or 75vw? Well, once they load, they will have their natural aspect ratio, so that’s nice. But it also means they don’t know the height while they are loading and it may cause performance jank-ening reflow. One solution is to put them into a container with an aspect ratio, forcing them to the corners…

State of Drupal presentation (September 2018)

Last week, nearly 1,000 Drupalists gathered in Darmstadt, Germany for Drupal Europe. In good tradition, I presented my State of Drupal keynote. You can watch a recording of my keynote (starting at 4:38) or download a copy of my slides (37 MB). Drupal 8 continues to mature I started my keynote by highlighting this month’s Drupal 8.6.0 release. Drupal 8.6 marks the sixth consecutive Drupal 8 release that has been delivered on time. Compared to one year ago, we have 46 percent more stable Drupal 8 modules. We also have 10 percent more contributors are working on Drupal 8 Core in comparison to last year. All of these milestones indicate that the Drupal 8 is healthy and growing. Next, I gave an update on our strategic initiatives: Make Drupal better for content creators © Paul JohnsonThe expectations of content creators are changing. For Drupal to be successful, we have to…

HTML elements, unite! The Voltron-like powers of combining elements.

Guides, resources and discussions about Semantic HTML are often focused around specific elements, like a heading, or a sectioning element, or a list. It’s not often that we talk specifically about how we can combine HTML elements to increase their effectiveness. Normally, when we introduce HTML, we talk about how it is used to apply meaning to content in a document, and we do this by using examples like: “Is it a paragraph?” “Is it a heading?” “Is it a numbered list” “Is it a button” We use these examples because they are easy to understand — it’s a single piece or chunk of the same content that needs to be represented in a particular way. This is useful, but it only scratches the surface of how we can use and combine elements to provide more context and meaning. You remember Voltron, right? Each member of the Voltron force was…

We made Drupal a lot easier to evaluate

Seven months ago, Matthew Grasmick published an article describing how hard it is to install Drupal. His article included the following measurements for creating a new application on his local machine, across four different PHP frameworks: Platform Clicks Time Drupal 20+ 15:00+ Symfony 3 1:55 WordPress 7 7:51 Laravel 3 17:28 The results from Matthew’s blog were clear: Drupal is too hard to install. It required more than 15 minutes and 20 clicks to create a simple site. Seeing these results prompted me to launch a number of initiatives to improve the evaluator experience at DrupalCon Nashville. Here is the slide from my DrupalCon Nashville presentation: A lot has happened between then and now: We improved the download page to improve the discovery experience on drupal.org We added an Evaluator Guide to Drupal.org We added a quick-start command to Drupal 8.6 We added the Umami demo profile to Drupal 8.6…
