Reflections of Drupal Camp Chattanooga 2019

For years, community members from Chattanooga talked about their local camp. These community members routinely support other camps, through attendance, volunteerism, and by giving talks. It was our time to return the favor.

Hook 42 not only sponsored the event, but delivered a training and two sessions. From our team Jonathan and Adam attended, and they really enjoyed the time there.

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.
