Decoupled Drupal has long been an approach touted by some in the front-end contingent of the Drupal community to achieve goals such

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.

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 Preston So’s.

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.

As Drupal is increasingly widely used as a back end for application ecosystems, developers of wildly diverse backgrounds are now retrieving and manipulating data from Drupal in unprecedented ways. With Drupal 8 and core REST support articulating an API-first vision for the decoupled future, Drupal is eminently well-prepared to back a bevy of applications with divergent approaches. There's just one problem: non-Drupal developers don't know Drupal.

That's where Waterwheel comes in. Waterwheel is an emerging ecosystem of software development kits (SDKs) built by the Drupal community which ease and accelerate development of applications in other technologies. If you will momentarily forgive the flawed metaphor, Waterwheel helps non-PHP and non-Drupal developers "speak" Drupal.

Lots of people think that template engines like Twig cannot be interactively debugged. I heard this several times as an argument against template engine, and for using legacy php processing like phptemplate (standard in Drupal 7).

Well, it’s not entirely true.

Regardless of the purpose of your Drupal site, it is important that the site be reliably available and performant for your users. For those of us with limited resources at our disposal it isn’t feasible to scale up hardware indefinitely. Thankfully, Drupal provides us with a number of tools in core, and even more in the contrib community, that make caching accessible to even the least technical amongst us. Let’s walk through the basics of the Drupal cache and discuss the importance of properly configuring cache with the goal of avoiding common missteps.

Welcome to my series of blogs about debugging in Drupal 8.

The reason why I decided to create this series is that a lot of Drupalists use ”legacy” ways of non-interactive debugging based on php-native commands like print_r(), var_dump(), debug_print_backtrace() or commands provided by contributed modules or themes like dpm() or dump() inside of twig templates.
