Good Day to you!

In my last article, I introduced you to NMAP, WIRESHARK and NETCAT. These fall in the category of diagnostics and troubleshooting. The next two tools known as vulnerability scanners. They check your server, code and in the case of the second tool - Accunetix  - it scans your "code" for such things as SQL Injection flaws and Cross site scripting.

Good Day to you and welcome to Tools you need to know about.

This article is part one of the TOOL Series. In this I want to introduce you to some of my favorite tools. In the first few articles, I will discuss them generally, then in future articles, I'll spend time discussing each one.

The tools discussed will be both GPL and NON-GPL tools as well as Joomla based tools.  Your comments are welcome and I hope that you find this series helpful.

We Use, Trust and Recommend Rochen

10 years is a long time in this business.

Since we started in 2006, we've dealt with a lot of people and a lot of companies. Business relationships have come and gone. Not many have endured for 10 years. Our relationship with Rochen is one of the few that has.

For the last 10 years, we've hosted all our sites at Rochen. This site is running on Rochen right now.

We use Rochen ourselves, and we recommend them to our customers. Over the last 10 years, we've experienced a lot of hosting companies. Though during these years we’ve occasionally recommended hosting companies, we stopped doing so because of the negative customer feedback we received. However, when we send people to Rochen, they come back happy.

Hey! DrupalCon Denver is almost here... and I'm leavin' on a jet plane! (yep - I'm old enough to remember that song)

This will be our 4th DrupalCon, and for the 3rd time Steve and I are teaching the "Absolute Beginner's Guide to Drupal" at a DrupalCon. The training is on Monday, but I'm afraid it sold out three times.  We'll then enjoy the conference for the rest of the week with some of the geekiest people in the world! It's going to be a great week!

If you can't make it to Denver, check back often this week. If you're interested in Drupal, we'll be live blogging many of the sessions we attend including, of course, the keynote on Tuesday by Dries.

If you can make it to Denver, we'd love to meet you. Here's how to find us and get some great freebies.

Heading to DrupalCon Denver

Thirty five people from all over the U.S. have joined us today to learn about Drupal in our training session at DrupalCon Denver! From government agencies to major universities and small businesses to non-profits are represented here today.
