Reverse Scrolling on Windows 10

For those of you who are like me and have been working on a Mac, you know that you can either have BOTH your trackpad and your mouse with Natural Scrolling or not … So for myself, I can't stand having to do things two different ways. It's hard enough to go back and forth between CTRL + C and + C, so I standardize where I can.

Solr and explaining "AND" and "OR"

I was asked by a client to explain Relevancy as they didn't understand why adding an additional word to their query was actually causing a result to not show up (at least at the top of the list) as they expected. It turned out the actual discussion wasn't about relevancy at all, but And and Or and how they are used in Solr.

Drupal 8 Development Framework

At Promet, I'm an avid Composer user with Drupal. With that said, we are now starting Drupal 8 sites for clients, camp sites, and even ourselves. With that said, Doug Dobrzynski recently made some changes to the Promet framework (on his own time) that allows it to work with Drupal 8. You can see it over on Github.

My Windows Development Environment

As a pretty avid Mac / Linux user, I get stuck in my ways. However, every once in a while I get an itch to do something different, just so I can see how those that I'm teaching are affected by some of the changes that I make. This includes the realm of the Windows PHP Developer. With that said I thought it handy to go about sharing some of the tools that I use to develop with to make my Windows environment more like the environments I'm used to.
