The Accidental Coder: State-of-Drupal Poll Results

Planet Drupal - Thu, 2017-04-27 14:11

Thanks to all who took the time to take the poll. The participation was great! Over 350 respondents, which is a number in excess of 10% of the DrupalCon attendance. There were couple comments that I'd like to address:

A few felt that the questions were biased, or that the choices given were biased. I strove to make each of the questions a current topic, without having any imply a leaning in either direction. For example: "How do you feel about Drupal's Leadership" is meant to present a current topic in the community, but is designed to not imply a positive or negative spin. As for the options, it will never be possible in a poll with static response choices to cover all nuances, unless you just give three: positive, negative or neutral. I did try to ensure that each question had a fully positive response, a clearly negative response, and some options in between. I suppose it could have been set up to be a 1-10 scale, but I defy you to qualify the difference between 6 and 7 on such a scale. I also offered to account for comments that included a question number and a custom response when presenting the results, and have done that on questions 1 and 6, for which custom answers were given. 

There was also a concern that question 6 only offered negative or neutral options, and the suggestion was that the question should be removed from the poll as a result. I disagree, feeling that the first option, "The matter was handled properly" is certainly an option that indicates an opinion that is neither negative nor on the fence.

Should I do another poll? Let me know. 

And now, the results:

 The Future of Drupal

 Dries Conflicts

 Drupal Leadership

 Drupal Leadership Structure

 Drupal's Direction

 On the Matter of Crell

 Time Spent with Drupal Hedging your Bet

 Where you work

 What you do

The average time in Drupal for all respondents was 7.1 years.

Dave Hall Consulting: Continuing the Conversation at DrupalCon and Into the Future

Planet Drupal - Thu, 2017-04-27 13:00

My blog post from last week was very well received and sparked a conversation in the Drupal community about the future of Drupal. That conversation has continued this week at DrupalCon Baltimore.

Yesterday during the opening keynote, Dries touched on some of the issues raised in my blog post. Later in the day we held an unofficial BoF. The turn out was smaller than I expected, but we had a great discussion.

Drupal moving from a hobbyist and business tool to being an enterprise CMS for creating "ambitious digital experiences" was raised in the Driesnote and in other conversations including the BoF. We need to acknowledge that this has happened and consider it an achievement. Some people have been left behind as Drupal has grown up. There is probably more we can do to help these people. Do we need more resources to help them skill up? Should we direct them towards WordPress, backdrop, squarespace, wix etc? Is it is possible to build smaller sites that eventually grow into larger sites?

In my original blog post I talked about "peak Drupal" and used metrics that supported this assertion. One metric missing from that post is dollars spent on Drupal. It is clear that the picture is very different when measuring success using budgets. There is a general sense that a lot of money is being spent on high end Drupal sites. This has resulted in less sites doing more with Drupal 8.

As often happens when trying to solve problems with Drupal during the BoF descended into talking technical solutions. Technical solutions and implementation detail have a place. I think it is important for the community to move beyond this and start talking about Drupal as a product.

In my mind Drupal core should be a content management framework and content hub service for building compelling digital experiences. For the record, I am not arguing Drupal should become API only. Larger users will take this and build their digital stack on top of this platform. This same platform should support an ecosystem of Drupal "distros". These product focused projects target specific use cases. Great examples of such distros include Lightning, Thunder, Open Social, aGov and Drupal Commerce. For smaller agencies and sites a distro can provide a great starting point for building new Drupal 8 sites.

The biggest challenge I see is continuing this conversation as a community. The majority of the community toolkit is focused on facilitating technical discussions and implementations. These tools will be valuable as we move from talking to doing, but right now we need tools and processes for engaging in silver discussions so we can build platinum level products.

According to SAQ A-EP an e-commerce website should not receive cardholder data but should control how consumers, or their cardholder data, are redirected to a PCI DSS validated third-party payment processor.

OSTraining: Add Parallax Styled Blocks to Your Drupal 8 Theme

Planet Drupal - Thu, 2017-04-27 11:31
Add Parallax Styled Blocks to Your Drupal 8 Theme

In this tutorial, I will explain how to use custom block types to create a Parallax effect in a Drupal 8 subtheme.

It would be preferable but not required for you to have a good understanding of Drupal 8 theming. You can click here to take the Drupal 8 Theming Class.

To be able to follow this tutorial, you need to install Bootstrap and create a subtheme from the CDN folder. You can follow our guide here in our earlier post.
