Why Steve Jobs Would Have Loved Drupal

I’m an unashamed Apple fanboy. I’ll resist the temptation to #humblebrag about all the Apple gear I’ve owned through the years. I worship at the altar of the late Steve Jobs, who while flawed, has inspired me through his relentless passion and creativity.

News of the paperback release of his autobiography in September reminded me of one of my favorite moments from his book:

Acquia, une société spécialisée dans le service autour du CMS Open Source Drupal et fondée par le créateur de Drupal, et Alter Way, l’une des SSLL clés dans l’Hexagone, ont décidé de renforcer leur partenariat en proposant Acquia Cloud Extend au marché français. Cette offre conjugue certes un hébergement de Drupal sur des datacenters français, mais donne également accès à l’offre Acquia Cloud, qui apporte un environnement expert autour de Drupal, doué notamment d’un environnement de développement, d’un accès aux API d’Acquia Cloud, et d’outils d’optimisation des déploiements, comme l’indique le site d’Acquia.

Alter Way, qui était déjà partenaire d’Acquia autour de l’intégration Drupal, servira ainsi de relai pour lancer cette offre Cloud en France, «pays-pilote» avant un déploiement de l’offre à l’international.

Alter Way propose des services d’hébergement de sites Web et dispose également d’une offre cloud baptisée H2O, à base de solutions Open Source.

Near the shores of Rehoboth Beach, Del., stands a premier destination for traveling youth baseball and softball teams. The 95-acre facility at Sports at the Beach features 16 fields, 30 batting cages and dormitory accommodations for visiting teams. From March to November, ball clubs from all over the East Coast descend upon its bluegrass-sod fields to participate in weekend and week-long tournaments.

The complex’s website, sportsatthebeach.com, serves as the digital platform for every stage of the Sports at the Beach experience. From recruiting teams, managing registrations and arranging tournament pairings to publishing bracket updates and broadcasting a LiveStream of key tournament games, the Sports at the Beach site connects players, parents and coaches with up-to-the-minute tournament details. Since some tournaments can attract as many as 100 teams in a weekend, visitors jam the complex’s wifi access to stay up to date on pairings and schedules.

Digital Capabilities Power Growth of Site and Registered Members

Sports at the Beach implemented Drupal, the open source content management system, in 2012, taking advantage of available e-commerce and event registration modules to manage team registrations and e-commerce payments. Moving to the open digital publishing platform also helped the site become scalable and always accessible during peak-traffic periods during the complex’s marquee tournaments, often held during holiday weekends.
