Ensuring the integrity of a site's code is an important aspect to ensuring the security of a site. In an upcoming release, Backdrop & Silkscreen will add digital signatures to the module downloads to help ensure sites remain secure. In this…
In a user-first world, content is the basis for ensuring great user experience. A content audit lays the groundwork for aligning organizational objectives with site visitor needs.
A decoupled, API-first architecture can be fast and efficient. But it can also generate lots of different things in the oddest places: calendar events over here, a newsroom over there, and loads of actual content in a whole bunch of places.
We know the drill. Structured content facilitates reuse, findability, SEO ranking, social sharing. It makes for content consistency. It frees your content to be used on any interface. But how do we get there?
A "how-to" session for Drupal 8 site builders who don't know how to use D8 Configuration Management (CMI), and/or don't know how to version-control your site configuration, and/or aren't sure about committing configuration code.
Using Drupal just isn't enough at times. With the vastly growing SaaS market, organizations want to include more features with less overhead.
This talk will focus on a large scale Drupal project as a case study for this topic.

Component-driven theming is gaining popularity in the Drupal and in the greater front-end development worlds. Taking a component based approach offers greater consistency, flexibility, re-usability and velocity for front-end development.
Composer is a must-have tool for any Drupal developers toolkit. Everyone has heard about it but isn't aware of the migration process to composer based Drupal management.
Configuration is a key concept in Drupal 8 that sits at the intersection of backend development, dependency management, theming, site building, and (in)sanity.
When it works well, it’s a match made in Heaven. Your website shows up for the right search terms and has quality content that is useful for your audience.
Create a more robust regression suite by adding automation of node creation and verification with Selenium and Python.
It's the email every content manager dreads.

You're in it. Development has begun. You're building out content types, sorting out view modes. But wait. You have a LOT of questions for your designer. Do we really need these two components that are nearly identical?

Have you had any of these pain points?
Continuous Integration and Deployment continue to be an interesting challenge moving forward with Drupal 8. Hosting platforms are now providing "kits" to provide some of these services if you are willing to take the plunge and implement them.
As component-based design principles evolve, the actual implementation in Drupal can be performed in many ways. Most, if not all, component-based site building approaches rely on Entity Relationships.
