Hey, folks, I'm Adam. I'm a 27-year-old professional web developer from Boston, MA, and I've just joined the microfunding web project (and possibly future ones). I'm really pleased to be on board!
I've been using Drupal every single day at work for the past four-and-a-half years, and I've developed several Drupal applications there. So I was very happy to see that Drupal is the platform we're using. I corresponded with Nikolay, and he gave me SFTP access and an account on the test site, so I took a look around at what we've got so far. It looks like at least a couple of pages are done, but I was hoping someone who's already worked on the nuts-and-bolts of the site could bring me up to speed.
Some questions that immediately occur to me:
1. What needs doing most urgently? (I have patched the bug in token_field that was breaking admin pages. ;)
2. How does CiviCRM tie into all this, if at all?
3. Regarding a couple of the pages that use embedded PHP code (and I'm thinking specifically about the PayPal IPN responder), what are your thoughts on moving that code into a custom module, in order to better isolate and encapsulate it? It looks like the application, as envisioned, will be fairly complex, so we might find more advantage to wrapping it in a module.
So, yeah...thanks for reading, and I hope to hear back from someone(s).
