When we last checked in with Rod Martin, in a previous post, he was touring the Drupal 8 interface. In this course, Building a Basic Site Using Drupal 8, he shifts into tutorial mode, deliberately moving step by step through the creation of a fictional Drupal 8 site, Drupalville, which he describes as a site about “all things Drupal.”

Now that Drupal 8 is one year old, you may be asking yourself: “What am I waiting for?” In the last year, thousands of Drupal 8 sites have launched, including NBA.com, Nasdaq Corporate Relations, and Jack Daniels. If you haven’t started your own personal, professional Drupal 8 upgrade, here’s a good reason to get going: the availability of excellent free Drupal 8 learning resources.

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.

In the previous articles in this series, we’ve talked a lot about the technical solution to the challenges that deploying websites to China brings with it. What’s not been discussed so far is quite possibly even more important: the people aspect. In this post, let's look at China from the point of view of Chinese developers.

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.

The purpose of software testing is to reduce issues to a minimal level and to carve out optimal quality for a product. When it comes to bugs and defects, there are different schools of thought, but quality is always the main focus.

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.
