The mere mention of website templates makes some clients bristle. Nobody likes being told they have to conform to a set of rules they feel weren’t written with them in mind. They also believe that their site will look like everyone else’s and not meet their unique needs.

Let’s start by dispelling that myth: that using templates means your site will look like everyone else’s.

A few weeks ago, we began a blog series about a decoupled Drupal project we worked on with Elevated Third and Hoorooh.

The project was for Powdr Resorts, one of the largest ski operators in North America.

Now that Drupal 8 is “production ready,” and agencies are ready to expand their capabilities by building in Drupal 8, clients are asking about it, and the community’s focus has shifted to developing for it.

In this two-part series of blog posts, I'm going to show you how we built a Drupal 8 photo gallery site, integrated with Amazon S3, Rekognition, and Lambda to automatically detect faces (allowing us to automatically identify names!) and objects found in our photos.

With budget cuts and rising expectations, higher education websites have become a challenging balancing act of function and affordability. Late in 2016, we set out to build a website solution that would leverage a CMS to create a repeatable, flexible website solution that meets current expectations in higher ed clients, and leaves room for them to make it their own -- without requiring custom development for each client. We also wanted to ensure that it could be deployed for under $50,000; put the work of managing and maintaining the site into the hands of the content team; and have a low-recurring cost to the client.

The Waterwheel ecosystem paves the way for non-Drupal developers to use decoupled Drupal as a headless back end without having to learn a lick of Drupal or PHP. Now, the Waterwheel team is excited to release several new projects that benefit developers developing JavaScript applications built in Ember and React.

One of the more interesting products to hit the spotlight at this year's Percona Live Open Source Database conference was ProxySQL.

This open source MySQL proxy server has been around for a couple of years now and keeps adding more features. The current release (1.3.6) has the usual features that you would expect from a proxy server, like load balancing and failover support, but ProxySQL also has database specific features like a query cache and query routing.
