Just over 6 years ago I joined ASU's University Technology Office as a young and admittedly very inexperienced developer. I was fortunate enough to spend the time since then working for folks with foresight and strategic vision that I've only recently started to appreciate. I've also been blessed to have been involved with projects that I feel proud to say are changing the face of education.

I recently presented a session titled Case Studies in Academia: Drupal at ASU & Johns Hopkins Knowledge for Health at DrupalCon San Francisco 2010. The presentation went really well. It was great to meet with all the other universities that are using Drupal and talk about the wildly varying ways Drupal is being used in academia.
[Update] I've updated the handout to be a single page, cleaned-up a lot of the instruction, and fixed several typos. Please see the revised handout below.
An additional note: If you use the handout to assist your site upgrade process, please do me a favor and fill out a brief survey.
Attached below are the slides for the April, 2009 ASU Drupal Users Group presentation I gave on maintaining sites using a combination of CVS (to checkout Drupal core and contrib modules) and Subversion (for backing up your site's code base and integrating with locally maintained modules and themes).
Here's a quick rundown of links mentioned in the presentation:
- 5 minute overview of Subversion (video)
- Subversion Handbook
- CVS Handbook
- CVS Deploy module for Drupal
Read on after the break for code samples.
I thought I'd share my recipe for a nice, clean Gmail theme with Arizona State University colors that you can use on your ASU Gmail account. Open up your Gmail (especially your ASU Gmail if you're at ASU) and go to Settings > Themes > Choose your own colors. In the window that pops up, enter the following:
