In our preceding post we focused on the topic of "responsibilities and communication" and the importance of questions that help to clarify duties and responsibilities. Today we’ll deal with unrealistic deadlines and budgets – and how to avoid them. An 800-hour project is not finished in a day, not even with 100 programmers.

The first time I heard about Behat was at DrupalCon Munich 2012. Since then use of Behat has grown exponentially and the tools it can be integrate with grew as well. With Behat we can test the markup of a page - pretty neat, right? Well, it's time to take Behat integration with Drupal a little further.

Almost three years ago, on Feb 19, 2013, I opened the 8.x-dev branch of the Honeypot module (which helps prevent form spam on thousands of Drupal sites). These were heady times in the lifetime of the then-Drupal 8.x branch; 8.0-alpha1 wasn't released until three months later, on May 19. I made the #D8CX pledge—when Drupal 8 was released, I'd make sure there was a full, stable Honeypot release...

Over the past year or so here, we’ve tried to make front-end development less painful by creating living style guides in our Drupal themes that we can use internally as a valuable resource during development, as well as externally as a client deliverable.

Taking advantage of the DrupalCon Amsterdam gathering of Drupal bigwigs – and in our eternal quest to quench our thirst for enlightenment, and thrust onwards into the future and deeper into the unknown – we corner some of those key Drupal players to ask the all-important question burning in everyone’s mind: When is Drupal 9 coming out?

Use Features together with a configuration management workflow and get the best of both worlds.This is a preview of Nuvole's training at DrupalCon Los Angeles: "An Effective Development Workflow in Drupal 8". Features for Drupal 8 will exist and it is already in alpha state. This may be surprising to those who wrongly assumed that Configuration Management was going to supersede Features; but, as...

The scheduling of posts was the first things I noticed that was missing from Drupal after moving over from Wordpress.  Thanks to the Scheduler Module, we have that functionality back, with more control over what and who can access it. The Scheduler module allows for Publishing, and Unpublishing on a Content Type by Content Type basis.  You can set up Scheduled Publishing on the Blog Content...
