There are plenty of tools that can improve your efficiency, but they can become burdens rather than real helpers.
Q. I’m new to Drupal and want to know if I need to learn Composer. Is it worth the time investment to learn?
Recently I began working on a D8 module, but this isn't a story about a D8 module. The work I did provided me an opportunity to get back to my pre-Drupal object oriented (OO) roots.
Drupal was designed from the ground-up to be modular. Once you install Drupal core, you can add any number of modules to enhance Drupal's basic functions.
Identity theft and site compromises are all-too-common occurrences -- it seems a day rarely goes by without a news story detailing the latest batch of user passwords which have been compromised and
Hi there. I’m Adam from Acquia. And I want YOU to adopt Drupal 8!
I’ve been working on this for months. Last year, as an Acquia intern, I wrote the Drupal Module Upgrader to help people upgrade their code from Drupal 7 (D7) to Drupal 8 (D8). And now, again as an Acquia intern, I’m working to provide Drupal core with a robust migration path for your content and configuration from D6 and D7 to Drupal 8. I’m a full-service intern!

But JIRA doesn’t have to feel that way. With the help of some easy-to-learn shortcuts, you can use JIRA more efficiently and have time to do something you enjoy. In fact, these shortcuts are all but guaranteed to make you like JIRA more – or maybe hate it a lot less.
I recently reviewed the shortcuts with Acquia’s India team, and developers there couldn’t thank me enough for simplifying things. As you probably know, JIRA provides bug and issue tracking and project management functions. In other words, it’s useful and often necessary – something not to be avoided.
Kanban and Scrum are two different methodologies that can be utilized within your development organization. Both have pros and cons as agile methodologies, and one is often suited to a certain project better than the other. Let’s explore the definitions, differences, and how to utilize them practically for your next development project.
Kanban is a model of continuous slating, or continuous improvement. Essentially, when utilizing kanban, project priorities can change in real time, based on what takes priority at a certain time, so there is a certain flow to the work. Requirements can be added and clients or internal stakeholders can change their minds at any given time throughout the life of the project.
Like a composer who can’t wait to conduct a great symphony, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Composer, a PHP dependency management tool.
Since we introduced the original version of Acquia Dev Desktop, thousands of people have used it to quickly create local Drupal sites on their Mac or Windows PCs.
