Field Notes: Drupal + Kubernetes with Lagoon

Hook 42 recently had a project that required the use of Kubernetes. Kubernetes is an orchestration tool that helps solve many enterprise problems when using multiple containers. People often want redundancy and scale across a series of containers or the same set of containers across multiple machines. Kubernetes helps solve this. It also can help perform orchestration tasks during failures or to distribute load between containers. Managing containers at scale can be a challenge and the goal of Kubernetes is to help.

Switching Themes For Progressive Enhancements

One of our recent projects required a progressive enhancement approach for visual changes. Instead of a full end-to-end rebuild of a Drupal theme, a progressive approach can be accomplished with theme switching. Many Drupal 8 projects leverage custom block types, Paragraphs, or Layout Builder to place one or more design components on a page. This provided the client with the ability to split up a larger architectural change into a small set of pages and components that can be gradually rolled out.

Drupaldelphia: The Jawn That Never Disappoints

This past week I had the pleasure of attending Drupaldelphia, a great event that is part of Philadelphia Tech Week. This helped introduce the Drupal community to a broader audience from the Philadelphia area. It was nice to see new attendees curious to learn about Drupal and what we’re doing. It was a pleasure to be able to meet, and greet, many of these individuals throughout the event.

Community, Development and Leadership at DrupalCon 2019

It’s been almost a month since DrupalCon 2019. We can’t believe how time flies! While we were there, we had a variety of things going on at many different levels. Just as fast as the time since DrupalCon has flown past us, our time in Seattle felt like a tiny blip.
