Ways to Contribute to 2014 Global Drupal 8 Sprint Weekend

There’s a Drupal Sprint taking place at Genuine in a couple of weeks and you automatically think, “Oh, it’s a developers event.” Think again because that’s a Sprint myth that needs to go away, especially when more contributors are needed to help with pushing Drupal 8 beyond writing code!

An Introduction to RESTful Web Services in Drupal 8

Cross-posted with permission from drupalize.me

One of the Drupal 8 initiatives that really excites me is Web Services. Drupal has never been easy to work with as a web service, but all that is about to change! In this article I am going to explore what has been going on behind the scenes with RESTful Web Services in Drupal Core and attempt to implement some working examples. After reading, you will be able to create a new node on your site via the Drupal 8 Core REST API.

A new version of Drupal has been released. This maintenance release, Drupal 7.25, includes bug fixes and small API/feature improvements only (no major new functionality).

There were no security fixes made in this release, likely because none were identified.

Here are the major changes made in this release:

Added an optional feature to the Statistics module to allow node views to be tracked by Ajax requests rather than during the server-side generation of the page. This allows the node counter to work on sites that use external page caches (string change and new administrative option: https://drupal.org/node/2164069).

Top 3 Challenges Facing Public Sector Intranets

All intranet efforts start out with the best intentions. Organizations envision an information hub for their community made up of easy to find websites that are simple to create and maintain. A one-stop shop for all their information needs, if you will. Many of these efforts fail, causing the end users to shudder at the mere mention of such an attempt again. And for government organizations, there are additional challenges when creating an intranet as part of a Digital Government Strategy.

The Rise of Drupal and the Fall of Closed Source [Jan. 2, 2014]

The rise of Drupal coincides with a movement that values thoughtful collaboration over aggressive competition. Contrary to tmany proprietary software companies and products, open source projects tend to become increasingly user-friendly and the communities around them actively work to welcome newcomers to the fold. The driven and radical altruism of many open source communities offered this new movement the authenticity they hungered for and one-upped the commercial competition’s biggest selling point—affordability.

It wasn't long before the usability, affordability, and ideology driving the popularity of open source began to pose a major threat to the commercial software industry. At first, the industry reacted with indifference, but one infamous case wherein Microsoft released a series of attack ads against the open source giant OpenOffice revealed that open source was becoming more popular than anticipated. When members of the industry realized, however, that open source wasn’t going away, the market began to adapt. Software giants began their own open source projects, some as an attempt to court open source users and others as a way to promote further interoperability between systems. Open source communities began to influence new projects and the foundation of a new economic model.
