When we last checked in with Rod Martin, in a previous post, he was touring the Drupal 8 interface. In this course, Building a Basic Site Using Drupal 8, he shifts into tutorial mode, deliberately moving step by step through the creation of a fictional Drupal 8 site, Drupalville, which he describes as a site about “all things Drupal.”

Now that Drupal 8 is one year old, you may be asking yourself: “What am I waiting for?” In the last year, thousands of Drupal 8 sites have launched, including NBA.com, Nasdaq Corporate Relations, and Jack Daniels. If you haven’t started your own personal, professional Drupal 8 upgrade, here’s a good reason to get going: the availability of excellent free Drupal 8 learning resources.

Drupal gets better when companies, organizations, and individuals build or fix something they need and then share it with the rest of us. Our community becomes better, stronger, and smarter when others take it upon themselves to make a positive difference contributing their knowledge, time, and energy to Drupal. Acquia is proud to play a part, alongside thousands of others, in some of the stories making tomorrow’s Drupal better than today’s. One of them Bassam Ismail’s.

In the previous articles in this series, we’ve talked a lot about the technical solution to the challenges that deploying websites to China brings with it. What’s not been discussed so far is quite possibly even more important: the people aspect. In this post, let's look at China from the point of view of Chinese developers.

Website navigation is something you probably use every day but don’t think too much about. This is how you travel from page to page within a website.

In the past, after every major release of Drupal, most innovation would shift to two areas: (1) contributed modules for the current release, and (2) core development work on the next major release of Drupal. This innovation model was the direct result of several long-standing policies, including our culture of breaking backward compatibility between major releases.

In my previous blog post in this Waterwheel series, I detailed the basics of Waterwheel.js: how to set it up in server-side or client-side JavaScript, and how resource discovery can bring Drupal-backed applications and traditional Drupal implementations closer together in unprecedented ways.
