A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending Texas Camp with the web team here at Texas Creative. Texas Camp is a day of curated sessions and panel conversations, and is hosted by volunteers from the regional Drupal community. I know what you’re thinking, why would an Account Manager go to a day-long session about web development?
Whether you’re fresh out of college, or have been in the workforce for 20+ years, the first day at a new job can be scary, yet exciting. There’s so much to look forward to – a new chance to make a great first impression, new responsibilities to help you grow in your career path, new professional connections who could turn into friends, and even a new (and clean) desk.
Learn the ins-and-outs of installing and managing Drupal 8 using Composer, the PHP dependency manager. Composer reads a configuration file for a project, then determines all of the underlying software that the project needs in order to work, along with what versions of those applications are compatible with all parts of the project.
Pursuing a higher level of work performance, respect among coworkers and just plain fun. I think it’s safe to say that everyone appreciates people who do awesome things, especially when it applies to the people that they work with. At Texas Creative, we’ve had an “Awesome Program” in place for years that’s designed to give our employees a platform for venting their appreciation of a coworker’s awesome work performance. It’s a way for the employee to say “thank you” to a coworker and recognize the good work that they did by documenting it for the Awesome Program.
In today’s work environment, breaks at the water cooler are a thing of the past. Most companies are using instant messaging platforms for internal communication between employees, and Texas Creative is one of those companies. We use Slack to communicate with our fellow employees throughout the workday. As a Traffic Manager, I’ve come to learn that there are both pros and cons to using this platform.
