When a user doesn't have access to content in Drupal a 403 forbidden response is returned. This is the case out of the box for unpublished content. The problem with this is that sensitive information may be contained in the URL. A great example of this the DrupalCon site. The way to avoid this is to use the m4032404 module which changes a 403 response to a 404. This simple module prevents...

Travis CI burst onto the hosted continous integration scene by offering free testing for public projects. If your code is on Github and available to the public then Travis will run your tests for you. I will show you how to get Drupal 8 running all of it's PHPunit tests in Travis. If you want to use Travis for your own private repo, you will have to pay a little bit. In my opinion that is a...

My colleague Adam Juran and I just finished with our session, Zero to MVP in 40 minutes: Coder and Themer Get Rich Quick in Silicon Valley, at DrupalCon LA. This one was a real journey to prepare, and through it we learned a lot of dirty truths about Drupal 8, Javascript frameworks, and the use cases where the two make sense together. The live coding challenge in our session proposal seemed...

After the keynote I took advantage of the opportunity to meet face to face with a new contact. Then, after lunch I headed into a couple of BOFs that were way out of my league and made my brain hurt. I finished up the day with a session that was more in my comfort zone. I think it's good to stretch my mind and get out of my comfort zone even though it, quite honestly, left me feeling really stupid...

Spring time is just perfect for Drupal rides! The weather is great, drupallers are in the good mood and Drupal-van shines in the bright sun… So we decided to make a ride to Zhytomyr. And it turned out to be awesome!We had to leave Lutsk at 7:30 AM to arrive to Zhytomyr in time. Getting up at 6 on Saturday morning is not so easy, by the way! But we actually had no other options and the trip to...

On Tuesday, Dries gave the best keynote I’ve heard him deliver. It included some very interesting Drupal history and it brought home to me how extraordinary Drupal really is. There were so many points in the project’s history when things could have happened differently - or not happened at all. To see a photo of the first DrupalCon attendees 10 years ago (27 people) while sitting...

Last time, we discussed some big themes your Drupal 8 team should be synched up with, like object-oriented programming. Now we're going to drill down into more specifics on the technical side. Is your tech team full of generalists, or do all your developers have special skill sets and focus on specific kinds of functionality, like databases or communications...

Debugging is a discipline that requires patience, and a fervent attention to detail. In the often times fast paced world of software development, when we're faced with deadlines, and an ever growing list of new features to add, and bugs to resolve, it can be a difficult to slow down and proceed in a meticulous, measured fashion. When it comes to solving difficult problems though, this fastidious...

Thoughts on DrupalCon LA's Front End Forum At DrupalconLA, I had the opportunity to go to an Open Front End Forum, wherein people chatted about the state of the front end. It was good fun, and the moderator did a good job of keeping the conversation flowing. First question: "Where is the line that separates front end from back end?" There was some disagreement on that....
