Security is very hard to bolt on to any software or product after it has been built. Building it into the core of the code helps to avoid mistakes, and thus the upcoming release of Drupal 8 tries to build in more security by default, while still being usable for developers and site builders. This list of 10 security improvements is not exhaustive - some are just a line or two to handle an edge case, and there are others I may have overlooked. I've contributed to a number of these improvements, but they reflect overall the community consensus as well as reactions to problems that required security releases for Drupal core or contributed modules in the past. For each point I've tried to include a link or two, such as the Drupal core change record, a documentation page, or a presentation that provides more information. Some of these may also be possible to back-port to Drupal 7, to benefit you even sooner. A "7.x back-port" link indicates that.

For context on why these 10 improvements are important, I looked at past security advisories (SAs) as well as considering the kind of questions we get here at Acquia from companies considering adopting Drupal. In terms of past SAs, cross-site scripting (XSS) is the most commonly found vulnerability in Drupal core and contributed modules and themes.

Not every student learns the same way, so teachers consistently have to find a way to instruct a classroom while also reaching students individually.

It’s finally here. No, not the new Star Wars movie. Last month, after much anticipation, Drupal 8 made its debut on the Acquia platform.

Recently I began working on a D8 module, but this isn't a story about a D8 module. The work I did provided me an opportunity to get back to my pre-Drupal object oriented (OO) roots.

Hi there. I’m Adam from Acquia. And I want YOU to adopt Drupal 8!

I’ve been working on this for months. Last year, as an Acquia intern, I wrote the Drupal Module Upgrader to help people upgrade their code from Drupal 7 (D7) to Drupal 8 (D8). And now, again as an Acquia intern, I’m working to provide Drupal core with a robust migration path for your content and configuration from D6 and D7 to Drupal 8. I’m a full-service intern!

In business, technology is a means to an end, and using it effectively to achieve that end requires planning and strategy.

The Capability Maturity Model, designed for assessing the formality of a software development process, was initially described back in 1989. The Forrester Digital Maturity Model is one of several models that update the CMM for modern software development in the age of e-commerce and mobile development, when digital capability isn't an add-on but rather is fundamental to business success. The model emphasizes communicating strategy while putting management and control processes into place.

Like a composer who can’t wait to conduct a great symphony, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Composer, a PHP dependency management tool.
