Deploying your website to production shouldn't be stressful. It should be easy. You should release with confidence.
To make that a reality, you need a repeatable, reliable and most importantly automated deployment process. BLT provides tools for connecting your GitHub, Travis CI, and Acquia Cloud accounts together to ensure that changes to your website are validated, tested, and deployed automatically.
Vladimir Roudakov and I sat down at DrupalCon New Orleans to talk about an event close to my heart: the 2016 edition of Drupal South. This year, it'll be held in Australia's Gold Coast. Knowing the Australasian Drupal community, this will be a very high quality event in terms of what you'll be able to get out of it. And knowing the location, right by the world famous "Surfers' Paradise" beach, if you're into sun, fun and Drupal, you'll be in for a treat!
A lot has changed in Drupal 8, and many people are close to completing or launching their first build. With any new build, you may be wondering how to ensure security and confidence in your site.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss some of the common security issues Acquia’s Professional Services department has found when doing security audits. Most of these issues are based around developers trying to make Drupal 8 work the way it did in previous versions. Additionally, there are some new security features you may not be aware of.
Topics will include:
Each day, between migrations and new projects, more and more features are becoming available for Drupal 8, the Drupal community’s latest major release. In this series, the Acquia Developer Center is profiling some prominent, useful, and interesting projects--modules, themes, distros, and more--available for Drupal 8. This week: Inline Entity Form.
Drupal 8 contains a highly flexible and sophisticated structured data engine built into core - the Entity API. With the core tools available inside the Admin UI, it is possible to create and manage very robust and complete sites. However, the Entity API can also be easily extended to create custom entities, and that is what we are going to in this webinar.
Looking at core and contrib modules for Drupal 8, you may be wondering "where did the code go?". Drupal 8 has removed many of the "info" hooks that were found in your module file and converted them to plugins.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how plugins work and how to upgrade your module to Drupal 8 if it used one of the hooks that's been converted to a plugin. Topics covered will include:
One of the best troubleshooters we ever worked with is a former sound engineer. He taught us, “Follow the signal, it’s all signal flow.” Running a website, your stack is the combination of hardware and software that you use to deliver your website and the “signal” is a web request. To understand the “signal flow” of your site, you will need to understand your stack. Understanding how all of the pieces fit together lets you know where to start looking for the problems.
Each day, new functionality is being created for and built with Drupal 8. At the same time, more and more Drupal 7 modules are also being migrated to the Drupal community’s latest major release. In this series, the Acquia Developer Center is profiling some of the most prominent, useful modules, projects, and tools available for Drupal 8. This week: the Drupal 8 Lightning distribution.
I met 15-year-old serial entrepreneur--CEO of goCreative--and budding Drupalist Brandon Relph at the inaugural ThinkNation event in Canterbury, in December 2015. In this podcast, we talk about how he got to know Drupal 8 and what he thought of it. And I was surprised to learn that there is a world of professional Minecraft out there, in which Brandon runs two professional ventures and employs a couple dozen people around the world.
