Google Summer of Code 2015 is approaching and few people started asking me about how to get selected in GSoC 2015 and where to start. So I though to go ahead and write a blog post so that others can also benefit. This post targets students who have never participated in GSoC before and want to know how to get started with the application process and open source in general. What is Google Summer...

While we know there are over 33,000 Drupal developers around the globe, I had no idea how strong Drupal was in India until I was there with Rachel Friesen, scouting locations for a possible DrupaCon Asia. By meeting with the community at camps, meetups, and dinners, we saw first hand how strongly India is innovating with Drupal and contributing back to the Project. When it comes to geographic...

In a recent blog post, Drupal 8 co-maintainer Alex Pott highlighted a seismic shift in Drupal that's mostly slipped under the radar. In Drupal 8, he wrote, "sites own their configuration, not modules". To see why this change is so far-reaching, it's useful to back up a bit and look at where exportable configuration comes from and what's changed.

Berkeley approached us to not only build a website for an exciting new project but to also develop its brand identity from scratch. The project was the Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS), a new initiative to provide a common collaborative space for research fellows, faculty and anyone at Berkeley working with data science in some way. The White House hosted an event to announce the...

I was hired by the Drupal Association in October 2014 to develop a new revenue stream from advertising on Drupal.org. For some time we’ve been trying to diversify revenue streams away from DrupalCon, both to make the Association more sustainable and to ensure that DrupalCons can serve community needs, not just our funding needs. We’ve introduced the Drupal Jobs program already and now, after...

More than 5000 people will come from all parts of the world to meet, share ideas and collaborate. As the name says, the event is highly developer centric, so the...

A somewhat common request for projects, especially intranets, is to provide a single sign-on (SSO) system. At a rudimentary level, an SSO system allows one site to handle all logins (authentication) for a group of sites, rather than a visitor needing a separate login for each one. For an organization with several sites it can greatly reduce the headache for its clients, customers, employees, etc...

Twice the fun: Twig on the server, twig on the client. admin Thu, 01/22/2015 - 22:29 A couple of weeks ago I hacked together a quick proof of concept of editing the same template for using on the client side and the server side with Drupal 8. It looked like this: Sunday hack. Make #headlessdrupal use #twig for client side templates http://t.co/OQiVya0cu8 #drupal #drupaltwig. —...
