At DrupalCon New Orleans, during both Dries's keynote and at the State of Drupal Core Conversation, question of whether/when to move to Github came up again. Interestingly, I was already deep into researching ways we could reduce the cost of our collaboration tools while bringing in new contributors. This post is meant to serve as a little history of how we got to where we are and to provide...

This is the second in a series of articles about building a website for a small non-profit using Drupal 8. These articles assume that the reader is already familiar with Drupal 7 development, and focuses on what is new / different in putting together a Drupal 8 site. In the last article, I talked about Drupal 8's new block layout tools and how they are going to help us build the POP website...

On the frontlines of Drupal support the team here at Chapter Three has seen a lot of different ways you can complicate or overengineer a Drupal build. These can range from sites with 350 unique modules, to PHP-heavy frankensites that do everything they can to avoid using core APIs.

Time to part three of the Dropcat blog-series. Now it is time to get less abstract, and show what is done. In Wunderkraut Sweden we are normally using Jenkins to do deploys, but you could do it also in a script from you local machine. Jenkins setup We are using jenkins to clone the project, and the only task we do after that is executing a shell, like this: In the end of this...

As a marketer, a Drupal newbie, and the newest LevelTen employee, I was super excited for DrupalCon. Historically, there has not been a lot of overlap between the Drupal world and the marketing world.

Since a quick Google search didn't bring up how to do this in Drupal 8 (there are dozens of posts on how to do it in Drupal 7), I thought I'd post a quick blog post on how you can modify a user's roles in Drupal 8. Hint: It's a lot easier than you'd think! In Drupal 7, $user was an object... but it was more like an object that acted like a dumb storage container. You couldn't really do anything...

Over the last week, several people have asked us about tracking Google Analytics "events" on their Drupal site.
