Meet the Mediacurrent Friday 5

by Mark Casias
February 5, 2016

Whether you’re a long time Mediacurrent reader or have recently discovered us (if so, welcome!) you know that we are always looking for new ways to deliver quality content to our readers. We have more than 500 blog posts on our website and have no plans to slow down. Our eBooks and Whitepapers cover important topics and challenges in more detail and we share every recorded presentation our team gives.

But sometimes, isn’t it nice to get a great tip on the fly? Isn’t it nice to consume content in a “bite-sized” format?

With that in mind, we’re excited to introduce our new video series, The Mediacurrent Friday 5! In this series, we’ll share with you 5 tips, covering a variety of topics, in less than 5 minutes. As for the host? You may recognize his voice from Mediacurrent’s Dropcast series, but now you can put a face to the name: our Senior Drupal Developer, Mark Casias.

In this episode, Senior Front-End Developer Chris Doherty debuts the series with 5 Alternatives to the Hamburger Menu. He’ll give you some great tips to avoid bad site organization.

We already have a great list of topics but as always, we would love to hear from you. Have a topic that you’d like to learn more about? Feel free to reach us at with any suggestions. Have a great weekend!

Meet team member, Markie Casias

Mark brings a fifteen year programming background and six years of Drupal experience to his role as Senior Drupal Developer at Mediacurrent. Highly involved in his local web community, Mark runs the ABQ Webgeeks Group and started the Albuquerque Drupal Users group.

A former radio personality, Mark switched careers to become a programmer when he realized he could have a fun job and eat. (No seriously, kids, radio pays horribly). But as a nod to his days as in radio, Mark hosts the bi-weekly Mediacurrent Dropcast show and the Friday 5 video seriesPrior to Mediacurrent, Mark first dove into Drupal to convert to a better CMS than it had. Through that he was sent to Do It With Drupal in New Orleans, where he met the great people of the community. From that point, he was hooked. 

Mark resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When not in front of the computer, he enjoys playing hockey, tennis, and a good craft beer- not necessarily in that order.
