We love sharing our knowledge about Drupal, technology, and beyond.
We're all thrilled to be heading to Baltimore soon for DrupalCon!
The Hook 42 team is on their way to the historic city of Baltimore. Its early days helped shape the narrative of America. This year it hosts DrupalCon North America and perhaps it will share a role in shaping the future of Drupal.
The team is excited to share what they are looking forward to, not only at DrupalCon, but also what the city might have in store for them during their down time. Read more about Baltimore!! We're Excited!
Charm City here we come! Hook 42 is on their way to DrupalCon Baltimore!
DrupalCon Baltimore will be here before we know it, and the Hook 42 team is thrilled to be presenting four sessions this year! Aimee, Kristen Pol, and Kristin Bradham (K2) are ready to share their knowledge on Drupal 8 theming and view modes, worst practices, and migrations (alongside our friend Ryan Weal).
Along with our sessions, we are helping organize and host a couple of other events! We are excited to be helping plan this year’s Business Summit, as well as continuing our sponsorship of Women in Drupal!
I fully embraced the motto “go big or go home” when I started to think about my first solo community presentation for Stanford Drupal Camp 2017. I wanted to force myself to learn a subject well enough that I could explain it to others. I like a challenge, so I set my eyes on understanding the fundamentals of Git. My presentation slides can be found here: https://legaudinier.github.io/Ready-Git-Set-Go/#. Read more about Stanford Drupal Camp 2017 - Ready, Git Set, Go!
Stanford Drupal Camp is a great camp for people new to Drupal; it offers an intimacy that larger camps and cons can’t achieve. Last year's camp was my first Drupal event and this year's second time around offered me a pleasant retrospective. Read more about Stanford Drupal Camp - What a Difference a Year Makes
Hook 42 has run four Drupal multilingual trainings at BADCamp since 2012, which has been a lot of fun. The first three years were focused on Drupal 7 only, and last year our training was split between Drupal 7 and Drupal 8. At all of these trainings, we had the great fortune of having the Lingotek team help us mentor students during the self-paced training as well as give a quick peek at their translation software.

It’s always a good idea to give your website a new coat of proverbial paint every so often. With the release of Drupal 8, we took the opportunity to not only upgrade our technology, but to completely redesign the look and feel along with the Drupal architecture.

While it’s amazing how easy it is for an experienced Drupal 7 site builder to get around using the Drupal 8 UI, the same is not true for writing code for D8. As has been made clear for years now, Drupal 8 is very different inside. Many of the hooks we know and love have gone away, most procedural code has been replaced with interfaces, classes, and methods, and there are scads of YAML (Yet Another Markup Language,
.yml file extension) files that wire everything together. How does a developer get her/his footing in this slippery new landscape? Read more about Writing My First Drupal 8 Module
