I've offered to help mentor a Google Summer of Code student to work on DruCall. Here is a link to the project details.

JSCommunicator itself was updated by another GSoC student, Juliana Louback, in 2014. It would be great to take DruCall...

Language Undefined Looking back on 2014, it was a great year of events and conversations with people in and around Acquia, open source, government, and business.

Hopefully you've heard the news about the Drupal Association's new D8 Accelerate grants program, and the fundraising drive we have currently going on. If not, the gist is that the Drupal Association has created a central fund, managed by the Drupal core committers, to fund both "bottom-up" community grants for things like targeted sprints or "bug bounties," as well as "top-down" spending driven...

Drupal's Form API helps developers build complex, extendable user input forms with minimal code. One of its most powerful features, though, isn't very well known: the #states system.
