Imagine it’s late Saturday night and your cell phone is ringing. You answer the call. It’s your boss and she’s very upset that the website is not working. Do you know what you are going to do? How are you going to respond, quickly?

Without question, one day you are going to have a problem with your website. You need to be as prepared as possible for that day. A little bit of time spent in preparation can make all the difference between a 15-minute outage and a 6-hour (or worse) outage.

This series of articles will help to prepare you for that day. We are Support Engineers here at Acquia. We spend every day assisting clients with websites in crisis. We would like to share what we have learned.

    When creating various pages developers often have to generate links, URLs and occasionally redirect users to where they came from, or any other arbitrary page.

    I looked at my Drupal 8 Module Acceleration Program (D8 MAP) Trello board this morning and was struck with the enormity of what we have accomplished over the past 4 months.

    This started out as a very modest project, and then it grew. Like Drupal 8 itself (to a much lesser extent, of course).

    One of the great things about Drupal is its flexible system of nodes and taxonomies. This allows for bespoke categorization of many types of content.

    With the official release of Drupal 8.0.0 on the horizon, "real world" Drupal 8 stories are becoming more valuable.

    Now that the train is actually approaching the station, we all want to know what it will be like to get on. 

    Mediacurrent, a leading Drupal design firm, got their Drupal 8 ticket punched early. They partnered with Acquia to launch a Drupal 8 site for Manhattan Associates, a supply chain management software provider, back in August, 2015, when Drupal 8 was in beta. The site has been on the Drupal 8 frontier ever since. 

    So what has the experience been like? 

    A "real world Drupal 8" series from Mediacurrent and Acquia has been telling some backstories.
