Acquia Podcast 36: Neil Hastings on Solr and OpenLayers in Drupal 7

With advances in Apache Solr and Drupal, it is easier to do some really neat things with geolocating search results and displaying those results on a map. In this episode I talk with Neil Hastings of TreeHouse Agency about the work they did with Solr and OpenLayers maps for the US Dept of Energy.

Does my site look drupally in this?

No naming and shaming here, but you know you've seen it. You're browsing around and see something very "drupally" about a site. Suspiciously, you view source or look at builtwith.com just to double check. What was it that you noticed? Was it some odd styling? Can we blame this "drupaliness" on Drupal?

Acquia Cloud UX improvements, free 30-day trials

We released Acquia Dev Cloud at Drupalcon Chicago and so far it has been an incredible success. Thousands of Drupal developers, small and large development shops, and businesses have been successfully building and deploying production Drupal sites on Dev Cloud for six months—and we have learned a ton from them about how to make the system even better. We've been pretty quiet for the last six months, but now we're ready to start talking!

If you'd rather try Dev Cloud instead of reading about it, you can sign up right now and use coupon code BJB111109 to get the first 30 days free.

Building a world-class security program at Acquia

Hi, I'm Mike Lemire, and it’s been three months since I’ve joined the Acquia team as Director of Information Security, and I wanted to share some of the what is happening here in the realm of information security.

A new kind of Drupalcon session

What is the purpose of sessions at Drupalcon? Why do speakers put in the effort to give them? Why does anyone attend them?

I believe that the purpose of sessions at Drupalcon is to spread knowledge about Drupal. The speakers put in the effort because they genuinely want to teach the material, and people attend because they genuinely want to learn.

Use Drush to Upgrade from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7

The Drush site-upgrade command supports upgrades from Drupal 6.x to Drupal 7.x. If you are just doing a minor version upgrade (e.g. 6.20 to 6.21), please use drush pm-update instead.

To begin, make sure that your current Drupal installation is running the most recent version of Drupal 6.x (currently 6.22). The most recent version is listed on the Drupal project page

How to use Hello Drupal

If you're running a business around Drupal services, giving talks and presentations is great way to highlight your own expertise and get the word out about Drupal. Preparation, however, takes time.

Drupal Security Learning Opportunities: fall 2011

This is partially a continuation of yesterday's post on Growing Drupal contributors and the project application process.

Over the next 2 months there are at least five great ways you can learn about security in Drupal.

Growing Drupal's Contributors: Project Applications

Project Applications are the process by which we invite new code contributors to the contributed project repository. This process needs to be made more scalable. In recent weeks the review times have gone down dramatically, but it will be tough to sustain that improvement. I believe solving this problem will require both automation and more humans.* Read through to the end for details on a program where I will mentor anyone interested in learning to do security reviews of a module.

Going to BADCamp? Participate in our usability studies!

As a new member of the Acquia Design team, it’s an honor to be working with smart and dedicated UX designers. I’ve been focusing on usability studies, and I’m a little bit like a kid in a usability candy shop, with all the usability evaluation tools available to us. Usability studies are essential to the Acquia engineering process; our goal is to build the most useful, efficient and usable features for our customers, so we need to speak with real people who use Drupal.
