Before anything else, I want to point out that while this post will focus on maintaining a contrib module on drupal.org, that is just one of the many ways to contribute to the Drupal project. Every contribution is important whether it's a core patch, a documentation edit, a translation, or something else. If you use Drupal, please consider how you might be able to give back to the community...

Language Undefined In April 2015, I was excited to talk with John Doyle, General Manager Technology & Solutions Architecture at the Australian full-service digital agency Komosion, to explore their decision to adopt Drupal to replace other technologies, including an in-house CMS they'd invested 10 years of work in. In this podcast, John very clearly lays out what...

It came up multiple times at recent events that it would be very helpful for people significantly working on Drupal 8 critical issues to get together more often to talk about the issues and unblock each other on things where discussion is needed. While these do not by any means replace the issue queue discussions (much like in-person meetings at events are not), they do help to unblock things...

Last week, some colleagues from Cocomore and I attended DrupalCamp Spain 2015. Spanish Drupal community is awesome, and they have put all their efforts in making an unforgettable event again in this 6th edition (the 5th I have attended). The event was divided into different activities for the three days: Business Day and Sprints on Friday, and sessions on Saturday and Sunday. read more

This is an exciting moment in the web development industry and we plan to take advantage of that.

Any morning starting with DrupalTour journey is great ;) Especially if the point of destination is only 70km away. This time we visited Rivne, welcome on board!We decided to slightly change the concept of the event. It’s much more convenient to communicate with visitors in calm atmosphere of conference halls — we all can concentrate purely on reports and questions. Read more

In the past three posts we've looked at how the Charlottesville Expense Budget might be made more transparent through maps and visualizations.  The final stage in our process is getting the data we've collected added to a larger data set - in this case we're going to use openspending.org as a repository for our work.   This means that even if this site fails (gasp) the work we do will not be lost...

A problem we hear about quite often is a huge cache_form table. Drupal by default caches all form data (typically for 6 hours). During peak traffic times, that can be a lot of form data being cached. When the form cache is cleared during Drupal's cron, the following DELETE query is used: DELETE FROM cache_form WHERE (expire <> 0) AND (expire < UNIX_TIMESTAMP(NOW())); However, InnoDB...

Oh, man. After coming back from DrupalCon Los Angeles with my team at ThinkShout, my brain still hurts... but in a good way. You know, in that same way you feel after binge watching Dr. Who on Netflix leading up to the season finale where The Doctor and Clara… oops. No spoilers. Point being: it’s a feeling of intense brain explosion followed by inspiration and motivation to get up and kick some...
