coloured sticky notes - easy, hard, impossible!

A couple of days ago I found myself describing how to estimate the size of a story. It was coming out in my own words, without references. It felt... right.

One agile approach for "sizing" up a task is to use a relative scale to describe a mixture of effort, complexity and uncertainty.

Well it happened! DrupalSouth was pretty damn magnificent. Learning was done, fun was had, and the community gathered and did what it does best.

There's been a couple of nice write ups by people who attended.

Installing Drupal

Thought I'd have a play with a bleeding edge pre alpha 4 development snapshot of Drupal 8. I hit a minor documentation/installation snag. This is probably frustrating for people, so I'm documenting it here in order to later find the right place, right person, right way to report it, and perhaps improve it.

I've nearly finished installing D8! Yay. Now I'm at the "Configure site" stage where I get this helpful message suggesting I ought to consult the "online handbook."
