Giving thanks, giving mo.

With 5 days to go in Movember, I'm bothering you for nearly-the-last-time about donating to help the fight against testicular- and prostate cancer.

Acquia UX and Design at BADCamp 2012

BADCamp is the Bay Area Drupal Camp, held in Berkeley, California Nov 1-6, 2012. This year, over 1600 people registered and there were 8 different summits over two days, loads of sessions in 5 tracks over two days, and then two days of sprints. It's pretty impressive that this is also the the world's largest free Drupal event!

...and Migrate, future

The major theme of the next release of Migrate on Drupal 7, version 2.6, will be developing an infrastructure to make it easy for migration modules such as wordpress_migrate and migrate_d2d to build user-friendly interfaces for importing content, based on step-by-step wizards. This work includes not just adding a wizard API, but also presenting a simple interface for non-technical users to run and review imports while still giving migration developers all the information they need. Initial work has begun and is available in the current -dev releases of Migrate and WordPress Migrate (with some more rudimentary work in the wizard_api branch of migrate_d2d). The API is still in flux, so if you're interested in experimenting with this it will be important to update the modules in sync for the time being.

Migrate, present...

Migrate 2.5 has been released, consolidating several enhancements and bug fixes since Migrate 2.4 was released in June.

Acquia at BAD Camp 2012 – see you there!

I am pleased to be able to announce that Acquia is a core sponsor of this year's Bay Area Drupal Camp. We've been part of BAD Camp and sponsored before, but it's a privilege to be part of making Drupal's largest and best free, annual event a reality again this year. And we're so excited about everything going on: hiring, sessions, summits, and more! Old friends and new, stop by our table and say hi.

Drupal-to-Drupal data migration Part 1: The basics

I’m pleased to announce that the migrate_d2d module, long in sandbox mode, is now a full-fledged drupal.org project, and the first release candidate is now available. This module extends the Migrate framework with a framework of Migration classes for importing into a Drupal 7 installation from existing Drupal 5, Drupal 6, or Drupal 7 sites.

Motivation

There were 2 primary motivations for the development of this module:

Finding All the Things at the Engineering Hackathon

Last week the Acquia Engineering team assembled in the office for a week of brainstorming, coding, and fun. One full day (24 hours) was devoted to a hackathon, and we vetted ideas and jockeyed to recruit teammates right up to the 9 a.m. starting time.

Code sprints after BADCamp 2012

Acquia invites Drupalers to a code sprint after BADCamp on Nov 5 & 6 at UC Berkeley. Join D8 Mobile, D8 Multilingual, Drush, Spark, and many other teams as we make Drupal rock even harder. See who is working on what, and add your name to the signup sheet.

Responsive tables in Drupal 8

I'm thrilled to announce that all HTML tables in Drupal 8 will be responsive. This is a huge win for the Drupal 8 Mobile Initiative.. This is especially important in Drupal's admin section, which traditionally featured wide tables listing recently created content, comments, users, terms, etc. I believe we struck a great balance by hiding unimportant columns by default at narrow widths, and letting user expose those columns on demand.
