Drupal 8 & Empowerment through Drupal

Part 1 of a 2-part conversation with Angie Byron in front of the cameras at NYC Camp 2014. In this part of our conversation we go over some of the inspiring and thought-provoking ideas we encountered there, and then jump to some of the benefits to users of the technical improvements built into Drupal 8.

CMS Report

This week, I received an email from some marketing folks that Acquia was announcing they are open sourcing their mobile application code for posting content to Drupal sites. For those that don't know, Acquia is a commercial open source software company that provides products, services, and technical support for Drupal. This isn't the first time Acquia and other Drupal vendors have given code back to the Drupal community and you can be assured it won't be the last.

Honestly, I had not been following the development of Drupal Create so it's taken me some time to better understand the significance of this story to open source. SparkPR's Eric Sokolsky explained it to me in his email this way:

Today, Acquia released source code that will allow Drupal website content owners and developers to create their own customized mobile content publishing apps. These apps – the first of their kind on the Drupal platform -- will enable developers to create or curate content on their iOS phones and publish it directly to their existing Drupal-based sites – without being tethered to a laptop or desktop computer.

If I didn't know any better, I would have thought Acquia was eavesdropping on some recent discussions I've had regarding my observation on the potential conflicts between open source vendors and open source communities. Their action alone suggests that perhaps I worry too much. Let me explain.

Les développeurs vont pouvoir créer des applications sous iOS pour produire du contenu pour Drupal. Acquia a publié sur GitHub le code source en Objective-C de son application mobile Drupal Create.

Avec la mise à disposition du code source Drupal Create, les contributeurs qui sont amenés à publier des contenus sur des sites réalisés avec le CMS Drupal, peuvent le faire à partir de leur terminal sous iOS. L'intégralité du code source de l'application mobile a été mise à disposition en Objective-C sur le référentiel Github, vient d'indiquer la société Acquia qui pilote le projet Open Source de gestion de contenus web. Il permettra aux développeurs de créer des apps personnalisées pour communiquer avec leurs sites montés avec Drupal. Une app prête à l'utilisation, Drupal Gardens, est par ailleurs proposée sur iTunes.
