[Site Upgrade] Merging the Blog Content Types

Happy Drupal Security Update Day!

Everyone should take note : [after the update] "Additionally, it's recommended that you audit all previously uploaded files to check for malicious extensions. Look specifically for files that include more than one extension, like .php.txt or .html.gif"

"find . -name \*.html.\*" and "find . -name \*.php.\*” should do it.

Good Luck, be safe and
May the Force Be With You!

 

So, the other day on ABC News Rahm Emanuel was discussing layoffs in the retail sector and suggested the Biden Administration,  ”Give them the tools [and say] 'Six months, you're going to become a computer coder. We'll pay for it.' And you'll get millions of people to sign up for that. They're not going back to parts of the retail economy and we need to give them a lifeline to what's the next chapter."

This is why I hate the term 'coder'.  It takes Application Development and reduces it to its simplest part.  Application Development is a craft, like carpentry.  Reducing it to just coding would be like reducing carpentry to hammering and telling people that they just need to learn to hammer.  The reason we have failures like the first Obamacare* site is this myth that anyone can be taken off the street and be competent in 6 months.  I’m 51, been writing code since I was 13 and I’m still learning everyday.

I believe in retraining.  I believe that some portion of retail employees might be able to become developers.  But the “teach them to code” mantra is downright insulting to me and anyone who takes this craft seriously.

*I mention the Obamacare site not as a knock on the Ex-President, just because it was one of the biggest blunders I could think of.
