Turn and Face the Change, Ch-ch-changes at CommonPlaces

Posted By Michael Reich on March 20th, 2012

There have been a couple big changes at CommonPlaces.

There have been a few changes at CommonPlaces. As you have probably already noticed, CommonPlaces.com is brand new, plus there are a couple new additions to the team.

James M. Carney has been added to the CommonPlaces team.  Jim is our new Marketing Program Manager.  Jim has quite a commute to get to CommonPlaces from Salem, NH, a whopping four miles from his house.  He brings an extensive background with many big name brands.  He has even helped throw school bus sized beach balls off of buildings in Dallas and cracked open the world’s largest piñata in Philly, but that was just for fun.  Jim says he looks forward to spending much of his time finding out how speak language of the website engineers, which is a combination of sarcasm, English, Nerd-Speak, and website coding.

We have been busy at work revamping the new site that crosses visual design with functionality.  “We wanted a beautiful and remarkable website.  One that wouldn’t look simple with a Drupal theme,” Lemu Santos, web development engineer at CommonPlaces, “we wanted to make sure we flexed all our muscle on this one.  We have been known as a Drupal shop, but we have many different tools that can deliver some pretty amazing things, so we are excited to expand into those areas.”

Feel free to poke around here and give the new site a test spin.  If you have any questions let us know, we will take a break from throwing things at each other to answer it.  There is certainly a lot brewing around here at CommonPlaces.  Watch out for some new and excitingly innovative sites to be added to our portfolio.  Also, if you ever happen to stop by the office, bring goggles.  The engineers are deadly accurate with a Nerf dart.

I've been evaluating Drupal for a while autholgh I haven't had the time to give to the evaluation to get an adequate assesment here is what I like about it so far over Joomla:1. AJAX Support2. Dynamic/flexible templates one of the major problems we're having with joomla is finding a template that works well independent of the resolution settings on a user's computer3. Since its compatible with PHP5 it allows for more XML support since PHP5 supports both saxon and simple xml the 2 most prominent XML enginesI'll comment more on this as I go through the evaluation of drupalMina

Let us know how you like Drupal. We (ilovemychurch.org) are currently using Joomla as well. I like it, but I'm alactluy considering moving to Plone for our next re-design.
