Caching to Improve Drupal Performance: The Three Levels You Should Know

In our continuing mission (well, not a mission; it’s actually a blog series) to help you improve your Drupal website, let’s look at the power of caching.
In our previous post, we debunked some too common Drupal performance advice. This time we're going positive, with a simple, rock-solid strategy to get you started: caching is the single best way to improve Drupal performance without having to fiddle with code.
At the basic level, it... Plus

From consumption to contribution - Drupal business in India, Part 2


Ani Gupta, Drupal Mumbai community lead, StartupNext lead, formerly at Axelerant in India, and I got the chance to continue the conversation I began with Piyush Poddar at Drupal Camp London about the changing face of IT and open source in India.

BlissWorld.com: Achieving A Higher State of Happy

It’s 2pm on a Friday and I am fried. I’m dying for the workweek to be over. This time last week I was rock climbing in the Austrian Alps with my fiancé trying my best not to scratch up my week-old engagement ring. We flew back to Boston the next day and were both at work on Monday, dying for a vacation from our vacation.
Now that I’m just about finished digging out from under a pile of email and to-dos, I’m in desperate need of more traditional relaxation. One project we’ve been working on is telling our newest success story – Blissworld.... Plus

Conquering the Drupal Learning Curve

Common perception is that Drupal has a steep learning curve. Others, colleagues included, find the statement misleading and detrimental. I find myself somewhere in the middle. I think that Drupal development can be unintuitive to someone new to Drupal. However, I believe that any motivated, interested individual can 'conquer' Drupal development, regardless of prior experience.
I decided to test the theory by teaching a pre-school teacher, a used car dealership manager, a Java developer, and five others, Drupal 7 development.
Why the Reputation?
Drupal allows you to change almost anything at... Plus

Drupal: Helping NGOs & Civil Society in Myanmar and beyond


When Tom Feichter told me he only gets to one Drupal event a year, I wanted to know why. When he told me it's because he runs a Drupal shop–mspiral creative media–in Yangon, Myanmar, I had to know more! We talked about Tom's history in Drupal, how Drupal's multilingual capabilities have helped him, how excited he is about Drupal 8's architecture, his history working with NGOs on the Thai/Burmese border and how that has flowed into ethical digital agency work, and more.

Drupal really is everywhere

It is so exciting to find out that the promise of... Plus

Redefining Commerce: OluKai - Selling Shoes, Selling a Lifestyle


I discovered the OluKai brand a couple of years ago when my brother bought a pair of OluKai sandals, and lived in them for an entire summer. Nearly daily proclamations of enthusiasm and excitement over that single pair of sandals soon had me looking at the brand website and buying a pair for myself. Much like my Brother, I immediately fell in love, and have been a strong brand advocate ever since. But it’s not just the sandals I fell in love with, it’s the lifestyle that OluKai embodies. It made me want to emulate that in my own life.... Plus

Achieving Agile in Government - It Can Be Done


Implementing agile development methodologies in a government setting can be quite difficult. Government agencies often want to know upfront exactly what they’re getting, and exactly what it will cost. From an agile development perspective, this is a major challenge.
According to Agile In A Nutshell, “Agile is a time boxed, iterative approach to software delivery that builds software incrementally from the start of the project, instead of trying to deliver it all at once near the end. It works by breaking projects down into little... Plus

What Can The Public See and Do With Things I Put On GitHub?

This is the second post in a multi-part series on using GitHub for Government. In the first, we discussed the basics of getting your government agency up and running with GitHub. In this post, we'll take a look at what the public can see and do with GitHub, and in the upcoming posts, we'll discuss what Drupal code should and shouldn’t be in a public repository, users and permissions on organizational accounts, and developer workflows.
Here’s a quick overview of things that become visible and interactions that become public when a person makes a code repository, or “repo”, public on GitHub.

Build Your Drupal 8 Team: The Forrester Digital Maturity Model


In business, technology is a means to an end, and using it effectively to achieve that end requires planning and strategy.
The Capability Maturity Model, designed for assessing the formality of a software development process, was initially described back in 1989. The Forrester Digital Maturity Model is one of several models that update the CMM for modern software development in the age of e-commerce and mobile development, when digital capability isn't an add-on but rather is fundamental to business success. The model emphasizes communicating strategy while putting management and control... Plus

Going from .NET to Drupal? Here are the top 5 ways they are different


Drupal is an incredibly flexible and expressive CMS and development framework. As a
developer, it allows you to express yourself quickly and easily. That being said, being able to do
anything​ can be a little overwhelming.
Switching from .NET to Drupal 7 isn’t easy for most people. They take fundamentally different
approaches to development that aren’t called out. There is also a surprising lack of articles and
documentation on the subject. Two years ago I made the change to Drupal. I didn’t have
anyone to help, so the transition was harsh. Developers not only struggle with the... Plus

Tips for Managing Remote Development Teams


It’s often the case for technical development teams to have both on-site and off-site team members. If confined to a certain geographic area when hiring, it’s likely your business won’t be able to tap into a wide enough developer skillset as you might find with no geographic boundaries. But when managing teams that have remote members, it can be a challenge to create unity and harmony across the team as a whole.
Here at Acquia, this is a hurdle we’ve had to address and overcome. We seek the best Drupal developers we can find, but that often means that our team members are scattered across... Plus

Migrating Content to Drupal: The Weather Channel


One of the major challenges facing every digital publisher is making sure its content will display properly up on every possible venue: desktop, tablet, and phone of course, but also in web services, and on the emerging display opportunities arriving with the Internet of Things, like wearables.
Acquia partner Mediacurrent recently tackled this challenge on an awesome scale: migrating the giant The Weather Channel site to Drupal in a way that worked with all the above venues, and then some... Plus
