We like our sport here at ComputerMinds, especially when it's local (and we are not just talking table football in the back office). So when we had the chance to support some local events we jumped at it.
Much has been said about last month's highly critical Drupal security issue 'SA-CORE-2014-005', otherwise known as 'Drupalgeddon'. It was covered by mainstream international media, even if the reaction needs addressing. Drupal's security team take a responsible approach to security issues - being open & honest in disclosing them with fixes, in keeping with the community values. Security issues should always be expected in any software, it's how they are dealt with that speaks far more.
We patched all the sites that we had access to immediately fix, and informed all our clients of the issue as soon as possible. If you host a Drupal site, and haven't yet, run through the Drupalgeddon workflow right now.
If you are free on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd and are anywhere near Cambridge (the UK one!) then make your way to the Drupal Science Camp. The details on their website are a little sparse so far, but it's shaping up to be an interesting little event - plus ComputerMinds are sponsoring it, so it's got to be good :)
We are all very excited about DrupalCon coming to London (well London-ish - http://london2011.drupal.org/conference/venue ) - and now that we are Silver sponsors we are literally jumping for joy ... now we just need to think of something to put on our very own exhibitor table ...
ComputerMinds are proud to announce an exclusive shirt sponsorship deal with the BMF Bastardos "elite" touch rugby team. Playing in the Bristol touch league the Bastardos had a successful first season picking up the coveted wooden spoon ... luckily there is no proven correlation between touch rugby skills and Drupal development
We are all settled in to our new offices on the triangle and are loving the new office - we just can't wait for the summertime so we can enjoy our courtyard (wi-fi has been tested and confirmed working - just need to figure out some kind of sun visor for the screens).
Our new address is
Lower Ground Floor,
20 Meridian Place,
Phone numbers etc remain the same (quite how BT managed this without getting something wrong we will never know!).
