For many Drupal developers, JavaScript can sometimes feel like an uncharted wilderness. Fortunately, JavaScript has entered a new renaissance since the release of open-source projects like V8 and Node.js, and frameworks like Angular, Ember, and React are rapidly gaining steam. The advent of ECMAScript, a codified specification for JavaScript, has ushered in a new era of innovation in the language, culminating in the new modern version of JavaScript: ES6.

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 Amin Astaneh.

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.
