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.

Deploying your website to production shouldn't be stressful. It should be easy. You should release with confidence.

To make that a reality, you need a repeatable, reliable and most importantly automated deployment process. BLT provides tools for connecting your GitHub, Travis CI, and Acquia Cloud accounts together to ensure that changes to your website are validated, tested, and deployed automatically.

Have you ever been asked by a client to export pages or content as a PDF?

Yeah, I know that feeling.

Web services and APIs (application programming interfaces) are hot topics among Web developers -- for two good reasons.

  1. Many developers now want to expose content and features on their site via Web services or APIs.
  2. It's getting easier to take advantage of these services. Drupal 8, for example, now has this capability in core. And some contributed modules are attempting to make it even better.

This is why Acquia and Palantir.net, the Chicago-based Web strategy, development, and design firm, have been working together on a Web services series.

This is Part 2 of an interview with Will Eisner, Senior Director, Product at Acquia. Will’s primary focus is on Acquia Cloud Site Factory, which helps organizations create and manage many sites, from a dozen to thousands.

In Part 1, Will discussed how companies often discover, to their dismay, that they are running hundreds of Web sites, on many different platforms. In this section of the interview, Will describes how Site Factory addresses that problem.  

The interview was conducted by DC Denison, Senior Editor, Technology, at Acquia, who is represented by the letter “Q.”
