DevOps is a much used term, but it seems like everyone you talk to has a different definition of it. Here's my own interpretation.

Among the most crucial steps in architecting decoupled Drupal-backed applications is to bridge the gap between Drupal and the designated front end so that the latter can receive and manipulate data on the Drupal data repository via API calls. For some frameworks, this can be a rather tedious exercise in navigating the server-side APIs and crafting the correct requests on the client side. Luckily, with JSON API now proposed as a core experimental module for Drupal 8, the tightrope walk between Drupal and Ember is about to become more of a cinch.

For a recent project, I needed to use the popular Bootstrap theme, using the Sass starterkit for easy CSS management.

The project is hosted on Acquia Cloud, and the quickest way to start a new Drupal project that deploys to Acquia Cloud is to use BLT (a tool for Building, Testing, and Launching Drupal sites). BLT is an automation framework for running and building Drupal sites locally (it even integrates with Drupal VM!), and it is able to test, build, and deploy code on Acquia Cloud.

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 is Nida Ismail Shah’s.

With Acquia Lightning, site-builders or developers can build an authoring experience from the ground up in only a few hours.

Think of Acquia Lightning as “Drupal Core with afterburners.”

Development tasks that used to take days or weeks are condensed to a matter of minutes.

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.
