Security: How the world's largest open source CMS combines open & security

Drupal is a huge software project by any measure, with thousands of developers writing code for it and deploying websites and applications on it.

2012 Drupal Day #1

Drupal Day #1: Friday, February 24, 2012

As you may have seen, the Drupal Association is going to be promoting global synchronized Drupal training ("Create Blocks . . . NOW!") throughout 2012.

We were very excited to hear this. In 2011, we trained almost 1,000 people in the basics of Drupal through our HelloDrupal program in 12 countries and 19 cities. So we can only imagine how many people we can train in combination with the entire Drupal community!

Most followed issues on Drupal.org - February 2012

The Drupal project uses the project module to track bugs and features on drupal.org. For a long time if you wanted to pay attention to an issue you had to comment on it resulting in the infamous "subscribe" comment. In late 2011 a feature was created to allow people to subscribe to an issue without commenting on it. The world rejoiced (see this article for history and details).

    Making the Switch: Drupal 4 Developers

    To follow up on our post about the Security Training we're running in Denver, we now introduce you to our second training course - "Making the Switch: For Experienced Developers Moving to Drupal" taught by Jeff Beeman, Joshua Brauer, and Chris Porter.

    Check out the (very amateur) video below with Jeff Beeman and Erik Webb. Jeff is leading this years course, and Erik taught this course with Jeff in London & Chicago. They have some fun doing a "fireside" chat and covering the outline of the course. Watch for Jeff's watch... ;)

    The making of a Ubie - Inside Acquia training

    As you may know, Acquia has been growing quite fast. Since I joined the company in the fall of 2008, we have gone from about 25 employees to around 200 today. It has been a fantastic ride for everyone, and we see no signs of slowing. The tough part of growth for us has been keeping up with the demand for talented Drupalists. From what I understand, Acquia isn't unique in this requirement.
