Ah spring, a time to celebrate… the emerging flowers, the warm weather, the mom in your life, and best of all – DRUPALCON! It is DrupalCon season - time to plant the Drupal seeds and watch your skills grow. DrupalCon 2016 took the Breakthrough team to NOLA, where we spent the week enjoying the ah-mazing cuisine and the warm weather.
It’s hard to believe that just four short years ago, the Midwest’s regional Drupal conference known as MidCamp had yet to make its debut. And now, MidCamp 2016 is already three weeks into the history books! We’re well overdue in giving a shout-out to the people who made this year (and who make every year’s MidCamp) such a fantastic camp…so here goes:

What are you doing differently in 2016? It’s a great time to ask yourself the question. It's January in Chicago. We are forced to deal with the task of staying alive in a winter that should by all rights extinguish our species or at least force us south for a few months. It’s difficult to contemplate strategy when you’re trying to stay alive.
So I ask again, what are you doing differently in 2016? Is it time to invest in several of your teams that could use a performance boost?
Recently a topic has been circulating the national news about pay disparity in the United States between men and women. The number that seems generally agreed upon (if our statistically-inclined experts can ever agree upon anything) is about 79%. That is the percentage of a man’s salary that a woman receives in this country for doing the same job.
It’s a pretty tough number to swallow - 21% pay difference.
