Containers are a new virtualization technology with many advantages over traditional approaches like virtual machines. At Acquia, we use containers across our different teams for a variety of purposes. Some container-related projects that have really worked out well. We'd like to share them with the rest of the world.
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.
The Tech Talks at Acquia Engage have always been among the most popular sessions, so I’m excited to announce that for Acquia’s upcoming Engage 2016 conference (Nov 1-3 in Boston) we’ve more than doubled the number of Tech Talks.
The purpose of software testing is to reduce issues to a minimal level and to carve out optimal quality for a product. When it comes to bugs and defects, there are different schools of thought, but quality is always the main focus.

This is Part 4 of an interview with Will Eisner, Senior Director, Product at Acquia.
Understanding Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) has become really critical in Drupal 8. OOP adds benefits such as code reuse and encapsulation, allowing users to build better maintainable and structured code. This does come at a cost for the developer, who must make him or herself familiar with how this is done in PHP: namespaces, PSR-standards and general OOP concepts may all be new if you were previously using Drupal 7.
There are many different approaches to progressively decoupling Drupal, all with different pros and cons. This webinar will cover the different compelling approaches and some use cases of each, including:
Now that we've covered debugging Drupal 8 in PhpStorm using local web-based approaches, let's move on to command line debugging.
