Design 4 Drupal By Design(er) This was my second Design 4 Drupal, my first being just last year. As someone far on the “design” side of the “web design” spectrum (i.e., I know little to no code outside of cursory CSS), Design4Drupal is one of the only Drupal conferences I can go to and find content that’s directly applicable to what I do. I made it...

It's common knowledge in the Drupal community that Apache Solr (and other text-optimized search engines like Elasticsearch) blow database-backed search out of the water in terms of speed, relevance, and functionality. But most developers don't really know why, or just how much an engine like Solr can help them. I'm going to be writing a series of blog posts on Apache Solr and Drupal, and while...

Originally posted on Yellow Pencil's blog. Follow @kimbeaudin on Twitter! In my last Drupal blog post  I talked about how you can alter an existing view query with hook_views_query_alter, but what if you want to display a result set (your own ?view?) from a custom SQL query? Well, here's how.

As usual, for my blog posts on the Appnovation website, I’d like to kick off this article off with a disclaimer: var switchTo5x = false;stLight.options({"publisher":"dr-75626d0b-d9b4-2fdb-6d29-1a20f61d683"});

‘This is the nicest Drupal camp I’ve ever been to.’ These words are quoted from Steve Purkiss, who told this to me on the last Drupalaton night during the cruise party. I think this describes the Drupalaton experience the best - Drupal, summer, fun at the same time.

Topic: DrupalDrupalCon For my DrupalCon Amsterdam keynote, I want to try something slightly different. Instead of coming up with the talk track myself, I want to "crowdsource" it. In other words, I want the wider Drupal community to have direct input on the content of the keynote. I feel this will provide a great opportunity to surface questions and ideas from the people who make Drupal...

The greatest thing about all the refactoring in Drupal 8 is that, in general, a lot of those special Drupalisms used nowhere else were thrown out and replaced by sound design patterns, industry best practices and concepts that newcomers from other branches of programming will have an easy time of recognizing and using. While I can understand that this is an annoyance for some who have got used to...

Drupal Remote Dashboard (DRD) fully supports Drush and it does this in two ways: DRD provides all its actions as Drush commands and DRD can trigger the execution of Drush commands on remote domains. This blog post is part of a series (see part 1 of 4) that describes all the possibilities around these two powerful tools. This is part 2 which describes on how to trigger any of DRD's actions from...

In open source, something magical happens when like-minded people meet. You find out somebody else is dealing with a similar problem, you combine ideas and before you know it an ad hoc working group has formed to fix the problem. It's a public secret that at Drupalcon the good stuff happens in the BOF sessions. As the Drupal community has grown we've seen new community events spring up that...
