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.

Progressive decoupling, a concept outlined last year in Dries Buytaert’s first post about decoupled Drupal, is a compelling approach to building Drupal's front end where content editors, site assemblers, and front-end developers maintain contiguous experiences. For content editors and site assemblers, progressive decoupling allows for contextualized interfaces, content workflow, site preview, and other features to remain usable and integrated with Drupal as a whole.

Regardless of the purpose of your Drupal site, it is important that the site be reliably available and performant for your users. For those of us with limited resources at our disposal it isn’t feasible to scale up hardware indefinitely. Thankfully, Drupal provides us with a number of tools in core, and even more in the contrib community, that make caching accessible to even the least technical amongst us. Let’s walk through the basics of the Drupal cache and discuss the importance of properly configuring cache with the goal of avoiding common missteps.

Many developers who work on Drupal (or other web/PHP) projects have error reporting disabled in their local or shared dev environments.

With the official release of Drupal 8.0.0 on the horizon, "real world" Drupal 8 stories are becoming more valuable.

Now that the train is actually approaching the station, we all want to know what it will be like to get on. 

Mediacurrent, a leading Drupal design firm, got their Drupal 8 ticket punched early. They partnered with Acquia to launch a Drupal 8 site for Manhattan Associates, a supply chain management software provider, back in August, 2015, when Drupal 8 was in beta. The site has been on the Drupal 8 frontier ever since. 

So what has the experience been like? 

A "real world Drupal 8" series from Mediacurrent and Acquia has been telling some backstories.

In our last post, we looked at why Manhattan Associates was happy with Drupal 8 from a front-end perspective. What sealed the deal for them, though, were the powerful ways they could extend and develop Drupal 8 with improved configuration management, a new Web services API, and easy internationalization.
