Metal Toad: The Best Way to Learn Programming for Beginners

Planet Drupal - Wed, 2014-07-16 22:32

What is the best way to learn programming for beginners? I've spent a lot of time over the past 12 months thinking about this question, and as our firm has grown steadily from 19 to 39 people, I've reflected on what makes the difference between the people who walk in the door and knock things out of the park and those who struggle. Since my blog post on How to Become a Web Developer I have a number of people who regularly ask me this very question, I'd like to share my thoughts and observations.

Drupal core announcements: Core contact module roadmap

Planet Drupal - Wed, 2014-07-16 22:27
Background

Now that we have a new release cycle, we have the possibility of new features in minor releases, i.e. although we are in feature freeze for 8.0, that doesn't mean we can't add new features until 9.0. Provided they are backwards-compatible, we can add new features in 8.1 and 8.2.
After recently taking over maintainer-ship of the core contact module, @tim-e and I, in consultation with @andypost and @berdir have formulated a draft roadmap for the features we'd like to see in contact module in the future.
We're publishing it here for wider community-input.

High-level goal

To provide the 80% use-case of webform. i.e. allowing creation and submission of feedback forms from site-users; and providing editing, listing and administration of submitted form values.
Webform contains lots of features, we're only after expanding contact module slightly to add storage and administration and in the process meet the basic use-case of webform in core.
Note that some of these items are features and can be developed in contrib during 8.0 if required with the view to include in point releases eg 8.1, 8.2.

  1. Open issues
    1. Move subject/message fields to use widgets https://www.drupal.org/node/1856562
    2. Make contact message behave like normal entity https://www.drupal.org/node/2289063
    3. Rename contact category to form https://www.drupal.org/node/2285083
    4. Provide redirect option https://www.drupal.org/node/306662
  2. Key features/issues on roadmap
    1. Add (pluggable) storage of messages https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560 - we already have a test implementation of this (in a test module) in core, so it is already technically possible.
    2. Add views integration https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560
    3. Add admin listing of submissions w/ bulk actions to delete https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560
    4. Add ability to edit submissions
    5. Support for file-fields attached to emails - requires formatter for file-field.
    6. Ability to edit format of messages bodies including tokens
    7. Move email logic out of form submit handler to allow submission of messages via REST api that also send email
    8. Move email logic into own service and add events for other modules to interact
      1. Make email sending optional at category (form) level
    9. Path integration to allow simple alias management of contact categories
    10. Per contact-category permissions to allow granular access
    11. Provide a menu-link per category in a custom menu - auto builds menu of contact category links leveraging the menu link API to solve the category selector regression.
    12. Provide a configurable and themable block of selected contact forms. Probably needs views to query contact categories. https://www.drupal.org/node/1997692 and https://www.drupal.org/node/599770

Acquia: I Dream it and I Drupal it – My Acquia Story

Planet Drupal - Wed, 2014-07-16 20:24

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new beginning which weaves more threads on to it like spider as it goes on. Acquia internship came as this new beginning to me that I always thought of and dreamt of. I admired startups with challenging ideas and read more and more about the entrepreneurs, about their success stories and the way they reached to where they are now and still envisioning in future. I loved to read and analyze what challenges these young entrepreneurs faced and how they overcome it.

Improving the ROI of your Drupal Site with Content Strategy

Companies are seeing lower success rates on social media and diminishing conversion rates on the web - a trend that has put us all, especially content marketers, in the position to prove the ROI or face severe fiscal cuts. Unfortunately, reporting metrics like “increased impressions” and “better brand awareness” won’t be enough because companies are looking for hard before/after numbers.

The Alley Effect

Lullabot (via DrupalFire)

I had a really great meal today at a new restaurant called Denden Café Asiana in Providence. It's kind of out of the way – on a historical residential street that doesn't get a lot of drive-by traffic. It's not near any stores. It's kind of hidden away. I found out about it because it had amazing reviews on Yelp. I got a parking spot right out front. The food was amazing and it wasn't particularly expensive. I had a great meal in a nice little restaurant.
