The Sprint Demo (often part of the Sprint Review ceremony in Agile/Scrum methodology) is a critical step in completing a sprint, an opportunity to excite stakeholders, and a chance for developers to show off their work. For presenters, however, the demo can be a stressful exercise due to a lack of confidence, structure, or practice.

If you’re nervous about giving your first demo, haven’t enjoyed giving demos in the past, or you just want to get better at demoing, this post is for you!

When Drupal 8.0 was released two and a half years ago, with a built-in REST API, it signaled the start of Drupal's evolution to an API-first platform. Since then, each of the five new releases of Drupal 8 introduced significant web service API improvements. Drupal 8.6, shipping in September, will also have a new bunch of API improvements.

Recently Dries Buytaert, founder and project lead of Drupal (and co-founder, Chief Technology Officer, and Chairman of the Board of Acquia), published an update on Drupal's continuing evolution towards an API-first platform. Definitely worth a read.

With a uniquely diverse community of designers, developers, and everyone in between, Frontend United is one of the conferences I find I enjoy more and more each time I attend. And this time, in Utrecht, a wide range of designer- and developer-oriented content greeted attendees both within and well outside the Drupal universe.

As a Data Scientist at Acquia I get to build machine learning models to solve problems or speed up tasks that are time consuming for humans. This means I spend a lot of time getting data into a format that is usable by machine learning models, or even just putting it in a useful form for exploratory analysis.

One of the tools I use for handling large amounts of data and getting it into the required format is Apache Spark.

Atop the Castle of Saint Barbara in Alicante, time sometimes seems to slow down, and words that once held grand meaning seem inadequate. I had a similar feeling both during and on the heels of DrupalCamp Spain, organized by the Spanish Drupal Association and held this year at Las Cigarreras cultural center in a seaside city that is one of the crown jewels of not only the Valencian Community but also of Spain.

Revered management thinker Peter Drucker once wrote, “If you can’t replicate something because you don’t understand it, then it really hasn’t been invented; it’s only been done.” In many ways content modeling in Drupal has been done without being invented. For this reason, we’re developing a discipline for content modeling at Acquia. It’s drastically reducing both costs and defect rates for us.

As the weather heated up last week in Nashville and the city's eponymous hot chicken incinerated tongues left and right, something else was burning in the spotlight at DrupalCon Nashville: decoupled Drupal.

One of the common issues I've noticed when working with customers is the tendency to treat non-production environments, such as dev or stage, as less important with respect to security.

This is understandable since these environments are effectively disposable and could be rebuilt from production at any time. However an important consideration that should be taken into account is what data lives in these environments.
