The things we found in your site - part 2

In the last blog post I discussed several mistakes usually found by my team when doing site audits.

Today I want to cover a couple of more topics that can affect the life of your website and cause pain in its normal operation.

The things we found in your site

Part of my job in Acquia involves looking to some of the most complex Drupal sites in the world and analyze problems on them that might be known or not. When client hire us to perform a site audit, they want to understand what is wrong with their website, because of complains regarding maintenance, performance, operation or security. Other times, an audit is a way of guaranteeing that everything is running safe and the team is not wasting resources and time.

Meet Kenny Silanskas: 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. They are in the happy position of being able to train client-developers in best practices, choosing and using the right Drupal modules, how to use the open source process, and more. 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.

DrupalCon Munich : Drupal s’oriente vers le mobile et intègre le framework PHP Symfony [4 septembre 2012]

Paris, le 4 septembre 2012 – La dernière édition du DrupalCon s’est tenue à Munich du 20 au 24 août. Elle a attiré 1 800 développeurs du monde entier et révélé les développements inclus dans la version 8 de Drupal : orientation vers le mobile et intégration du framework PHP Symfony.

Drupal world domination - step 2

In recent years, a new breed of incubators called seed accelerators have had success helping new companies get started. They provide mentoring, connections, and capital. Depending on the accelerator, even the branding from having been accepted into the program adds value.

The best example I've seen is TechStars. TechStars has helped launch dozens of companies over several years by attracting extraordinary mentors, and running a well-thought-out program for getting startups off the ground. Historically, TechStars built programs in specific cities, and now has four: Boulder, Portland (OR), New York, and Boston. In 2012 it also ran its first vertical-specific program (TechStars Cloud). This was in Austin, but attracted startups from all over the world.

This trend is interesting to me in light of Drupal's rapid expansion. There is a very clearly a huge opportunity for entrepreneurs to build companies providing applications, distributions, tools, analytics, web services and more in, on and around Drupal. Seeding and feeding the ecosystem with a TechStars-like accelerator would make Drupal even stronger, in turn creating even more opportunities in a virtuous cycle.

So I'm going to spend some time seeing if I can put together a Seed Accelerator for Drupal. Thus - step 2 in my personal plan for Drupal world domination.

What's Coming for Open Source CMS in August 2012 [July 31, 2012]

In July, the Drupal (news, site) project continued work toward Drupal 8, which included creating a Getting Involved page for those who want more information, or would like to help. Anyone who'd like to know what the current focuses are in the process would do well to check this page out.

Drupal 8 project leads are also looking for community feedback on the issue of a proposed plugin system. They're looking for feedback on the issue of how well (or poorly) the system works as it stands now, for Drupal 8, for both plugin writing and plugin type writing.

Drupal company Acquia (news, site) was selected as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 winners. Global 250 companies were selected based on a set of five criteria: "innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz."

Acquia also partnered with Janrain to bring social logins to its Enterprise Drupal Gardens platform, and made some improvements to its Acquia Search offering. Anyone interested in making Drupal and Apache Solr (news, site) work well together might want to check out Nick Veenhof's blog post on the subject.

DrupalCon Munich is coming on August 20 - 24. This event is expected to host over 1800 attendees, and is following the theme "Open up! Connecting Systems and People."
