Responsive tables in Drupal 8

I'm thrilled to announce that all HTML tables in Drupal 8 will be responsive. This is a huge win for the Drupal 8 Mobile Initiative.. This is especially important in Drupal's admin section, which traditionally featured wide tables listing recently created content, comments, users, terms, etc. I believe we struck a great balance by hiding unimportant columns by default at narrow widths, and letting user expose those columns on demand. Our technique is a simplified version of... Plus

Meet Christian Yates: "Here's how Drupal can do that."


"Here's how Drupal can do that."

As Senior Director of Solutions Architecture at Acquia, Christian Yates makes sure that Drupal is able to compete head-to-head with any and all competing technologies. He translates organizations' business needs into a vision of how Drupal can solve the large-scale, complex problems that large organizations face. Since showing and doing is always better than saying, he also builds proofs-of-concept in working code to help get them on board with Drupal.

How does it feel to sell your company?

I've acquired other companies, but the sale of Mollom to Acquia, was the first time I sold a company of my own. Being the seller felt quite different. It's a interesting mixture of satisfaction tinged with loss. During the negotiation phase you feel joy and excitement. Then you feel frustration as you go through the due diligence process. It's a lot of work. Eventually, the day you hand over the keys you feel like you sold your baby. At the same time, you feel a sense of achievement.

Meet Kenny Silanskas: On fire for Drupal


On fire for Drupal

Kenny Silanskas, Acquia's Tier 1 Team Manager, has a passion for getting Drupal right that rubs off on his team – Acquia's crew of frontline Client Advisers.

Kenny says, "The Support Department gives Drupal sites the TLC they need." All of this results in happier and more successful Drupal users and a healthier Drupal project.

Meet Peter Wolanin: We are changing the world.


In 2004, Peter Wolanin, then a full-time scientist, discovered Drupal while volunteering on a political campaign and building its website. As he puts it, the road to becoming a full-time software engineer at Acquia started when he discovered that "pretty soon, I got more interested in fixing the bugs than building the site ... "The satisfaction of fixing things sort of drew me in."

"To do anything different in Drupal 4.6, you had to know the recipe. At that point, there were a lot of PHP snippets ... '... Plus

Introduction to Drupal Commerce

Drupal Commerce is a powerful Commerce framework build on the Drupal 7 API, core and contrib. It puts the distributions on the map once again through the Commerce Kickstart package, a ready to go e-commerce store.
It is important to clarify the difference between Drupal Commerce and Commerce Kickstart: Drupal Commerce (DC) on its own is nothing more (and less) than a powerful framework that implements various commerce related APIs (checkouts, products, payments and so on) on top of, or extending the already powerful Drupal 7 API, while Commerce Kickstart (Kickstart) is a distribution package...
