The Vancouver Watersheds Alliance, its partners and numerous local artists have given Vancouver’s Main Street a splash of color. The murals remind residents that what flows through our storm drains eventually leads to our rivers. If it’s not rain, it doesn’t belong in the drain!
I love this idea and I’m excited to go walk through the City of Vancouver to find them all.
Yesterday Cheryl Bledsoe, Technology & Accreditation Manager at Clackamas County Communications, delivered an outstanding talk at Clark College. I have seen many talks on social media, but none of them ever resonated with me the way in which the stories Cheryl shared did. This talk is a “much watch” for any company, organization, educator or person who utilizes one or more of the plethora of social media platforms. I would also encourage you to share it with your friends, colleagues, and family.
Here is the schedule of speakers as well as videos of past speakers. Also, please subscribe to Business Web Practices Speaker Series YouTube channel.
Cheryl, on behalf of Clark College, thank you!
A few days ago when I posted a link to the latest “Innovators of Vancouver” video I neglected to include my thoughts about it. Let me first say that as a child each and every Saturday, I participated in a group at the Industrial Home for the Blind (now known as the Helen Keller Institute). The group was comprised of 5-7 kids who were challenged with a visual disability. Some had vision similar to mine, and others were completely blind. We typically would spend our time going to parks, playing games and horsing around.
I always wondered as a child what would become of these kids and how they would fair as adults given their challenges. Well, this video struck a chord with me and showed me exactly what they are probably are doing today. I’m sure they are asking themselves the same question of me and others.
Frankly, I know that my parents were concerned about me and my ability to lead a life with limited vision. I’m glad that they don’t have to worry about that anymore.
This week’s speaker is a Clark College Alum success story. A few years ago, Troy Uyan was a Clark Running Start student exploring career options. He is currently employed as a web developer for the government of Clark County. He talks about how Clark’s CTEC Web Development program helped prepare him for his job and share impressions of his current world of work.
Here’s a video of Troy’s talk given at Clark College on Wednesday, September 28, 2016:
Here’s a video recording of the talk Aaron Hockley gave to my Business Web Practices (CTEC 165) class at Clark College earlier this week.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could spend less time trying to style the markup we’ve been handed, and more time creating a system of smart, reusable design components?
Well, we’re in luck. With the increased popularity of pattern libraries and the Twig powered flexibility we’ll be seeing in Drupal 8, we finally have the tools to create and deploy our own design systems.
But what is a design system, and how do we create them? What rules should it follow? How do I get my team on board?
