We love sharing our knowledge about Drupal, technology, and beyond.

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?
Blocks in Drupal 7 are pretty useful but, in practice, larger sites often have requirements that core blocks can't support like placing the same block in different regions for different content types. I’m happy to see core blocks have been improved in Drupal 8 to be much more practical and powerful.
The fabulous duo of K2 (Kristin Bradham) and Lindsay (Lindsay Gaudinier) are off on another trip to get their Drupal. Kicking things off, K2 will present her Conversational Drupal session that was a hit at BADCamp and Stanford Drupal Camp. Grab a coffee and bagel, and enjoy the eye-opener session on Friday morning. Later on Friday, Lindsay and K2 will lead a session on Drupal and SEO.
Every year we have a great time at DrupalCon - this year was no exception! Heading to New Orleans was definitely a treat for the team.
So without further ado - here are some of our favorite things:
Look out New Orleans, here we come!
We will be focused on a lot of topics in New Orleans including multilingual, SEO, project management, and teaching. If you are interested in all the multilingual happenings, check out the schedule of events. We hope to see you at a session, sprint, BoF, or after party!
If you are interested in multilingual Drupal development, DrupalCon New Orleans is the place to be. :)
There are 5 events we've got our eyes on, so you might want to put them on your schedule too. It would be great to see some familiar faces and even better to see some new ones!
We're all super excited to be heading to the Big Easy soon for DrupalCon!
We wanted to share some of the sessions and attractions we are looking forward to the most. Hope we see all of you there to share ideas, have a drink, and laissez les bon temps rouler!
We polled our team (and some friends) to find out what everyone is the most excited about - the general theme was food, but you can read all the silly and serious details below.
Hook 42 is ready to let the good times roll at DrupalCon in New Orleans, et vous?
Are you an agency who has multilingual clients, or do you want them?
Are you a themer, site builder, or developer who already works on multilingual sites?
Do YOU want to expand your knowledge base and skills so you can start building multilingual sites?
Have you heard the rumors that multilingual in D8 is easier than D7 and want to experience that first hand?
