The most magical month of the year has ended. It didn't just bring us gifts but great Drupal blog posts as well. Let’s see which one we liked the most.   First one on the list is GraphQL for Drupalers - The fields by Blazej Owczarczyk  from Amazee Labs. It is the third article in the series of blog posts about GraphQl. This one talks about the fields, what exactly are they, and explains how do Drupal fields become GraphQL fields. Blazej also shows us different groups of Drupal fields with examples.    We continue our list with our second choice is Why now is the right time to move to… READ MORE

erdfisch: Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter

Planet Drupal - 5. Januar 2018 - 2:00
Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter 12.05.2018 Michael Lenahan Body:  Drupalcon mentored core sprint - part 2 - your experience as a sprinter

Hello! You've arrived at part 2 of a series of 3 blog posts about the Mentored Core Sprint, which traditionally takes place every Friday at Drupalcon.

If you haven't already, please go back and read part 1.

You may think sprinting is not for you ...

So, you may be the kind of person who usually stays away from the Sprint Room at Drupal events. We understand. You would like to find something to work on, but when you step in the room, you get the feeling you're interrupting something really important that you don't understand.

It's okay. We've all been there.

That's why the Drupal Community invented the Mentored Core Sprint. If you stay for this sprint day, you will be among friends. You can ask any question you like. The venue is packed with people who want to make it a useful experience for you.

Come as you are

All you need in order to take part in the first-time mentored sprint are two things:

  • Your self, a human who is interested in Drupal
  • Your laptop

To get productive, your laptop needs a local installation of Drupal. Don't have one yet? Well, it's your lucky day because you can your Windows or Mac laptop set up at the first-time setup workshop!

Need a local Drupal installation? Come to the first-time setup workshop

After about half an hour, your laptop is now ready, and you can go to the sprint room to work on Drupal Core issues ...

You do not need to be a coder ...

You do not need to be a coder to work on Drupal Core. Let's say, you're a project manager. You have skills in clarifying issues, deciding what needs to be done next, managing developers, and herding cats. You're great at taking large problems and breaking them down into smaller problems that designers or developers can solve. This is what you do all day when you're at work.

Well, that's also what happens here at the Major Issue Triage table!

But - you could just as easily join any other table, because your skills will be needed there, as well!

Never Drupal alone

At this sprint, no-one works on their own. You work collaboratively in a small group (maybe 3-4 people). So, if you don't have coding or design skills, you will have someone alongside you who does, just like at work.

Collaborating together, you will learn how the Drupal issue queue works. You will, most likely, not fix any large issues during the sprint.

Learn the process of contributing

Instead, you will learn the process of contributing to Drupal. You will learn how to use the issue queue so you can stay in touch with the friends you made today, so that you fix the issue over the coming weeks after Drupalcon.

It's never too late

Even if you've been in the Drupal community for over a decade, just come along. Jump in. You'll enjoy it.

A very welcoming place to start contributing is to work on Drupal documentation. This is how I made my first contribution, at Drupalcon London in 2011. In Vienna, this table was mentored by Amber Matz from Drupalize.Me.

This is one of the most experienced mentors, Valery Lourie (valthebald). We'll meet him again in part 3, when we come to the Drupalcon Vienna live commit.

Here's Dries. He comes along and walks around, no one takes any notice because they are too engaged and too busy. And so he gets to talk to people without being interrupted.

This is what Drupal is about. It's not about the code. It's about the people.

Next time. Just come. As a sprinter or a mentor. EVERYONE is welcome, we mean that.

This is a three-part blog post series:
Part one is here
You've just finished reading part two
Part three is coming soon

Drupal @ Penn State: Webcomponent all the things, all the places! Increase D8 adoption.

Planet Drupal - 5. Januar 2018 - 1:14

Over on the ELMS:LN team, we’ve been busy every place not Drupal (huh what?) lately. We have barely been touching Drupal and couldn’t be happier (…huh?). In fact, we’re busy these days encouraging people to not focus on Drupal, at all (so this is on planet then why…).

Jacob Rockowitz: Webform, Drupal, and Open Source...Where are we going?

Planet Drupal - 4. Januar 2018 - 21:12

Tagged the first release candidate on Christmas Day

On the one year anniversary of the first beta release of the Webform module for Drupal 8, I tagged the first release candidate. The most significant aspect of moving the Webform module into the release candidate phase is the stabilization of key APIs and plugins. Moving forward, most new features that are not tightly coupled to the Webform module's core functionality will be developed in dedicated experimental or contrib modules.

What’s next?

My first goal is to start focusing on the recording of Webform-related training materials and my upcoming presentations at Drupal Camps and conferences. I also want to encourage and help more people get involved and contribute to the Webform module and Drupal.

Contributing to the Webform module and Drupal

People are continually commenting on my dedication to the Webform module. As such, I think it’s important to explain why I am so committed to the success of the Webform module and Drupal. The two most important factors that have allowed me to contribute so much time to the Webform module are as follows: I have the time available and I have a desire to improve my professional profile. I’m fortunate to have steady and reliable consulting income. For many years, I was a passive member of the Drupal community. But then my schedule freed up a bit, and I found that I had some extra time on my hands, so I decided to experiment and see what would happen if I fully committed myself to an open source project.

What I learned about maintaining an open source project

The role of being an open source project maintainer is daunting. I was surprised to learn that I am doing 95% of the...Read More

OSTraining: Select Embeddable Media Assets in Drupal 8 with Entity Browser

Planet Drupal - 4. Januar 2018 - 16:25

If you already learned how to embed a media asset into CKEditor in this tutorial, you’d probably noticed that the media asset selection occurs through an autocomplete field.

This is not really a good experience for an editor. Nobody remembers every single name of every single asset to embed. There are quite a few modules in Drupal 8, which can help you enjoy your browsing task. 

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn how to configure the Entity Browser Module, in order to select Media assets and embed them in your text editor.
