The Great Plains of Drupal Contributions

AmyJune is venturing to the Great Plains of DrupalCorn Camp to spread her love of giving back to Drupal! Not only will she be training folks on how to navigate the issue queue, she will be leading Contribution Day, and teaming up with Lisa McCray to promote diversity and inclusion.

DrupalCorn Camp is four corn-filled days in September, the 27th through 30th in Des Moines, Iowa.

BADCamp 2018 Trainings

We’re excited to be offering two training sessions at BADCamp this year! Both of them focus on widening the reach of the internet and Drupal. Accessibility and contribution are close to our hearts at Hook 42 as they both are great tools for making the web a more diverse and inclusive place. The best thing about both subjects? You don’t have to know everything to dive in and get started - starting where you are is a great way to move things forward.

Using Lando for Drupal 8 Core Issue Patch Testing

Drupal thrives with love and care from the community. We help move the Drupal project forward by mentoring, sharing knowledge, helping with drupal.org (d.o) issues, and more. If you want to help in the d.o issue queues, you are very welcome! While there are many ways to help, one important piece is reviewing and testing code patches.

Never "Just" a Patch

There's no such thing as "just a typo."

In Drupal, clients and prospective users see the user interface and documentation first. When we give them demos or when they evaluate the Drupal project, they aren’t just evaluating the code. Grammar, punctuation, readability, and spelling all matter. They give the project credibility. It is just as important to maintain the same high standards with the front facing side of Drupal as we do with the code.

I have been working with Drupal for about three years, and contributing back to the project for a little less than two.

I have learned quite a bit, but, most importantly, I have come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as “just” a typo, “just” a grammar issue, or “just” a documentation patch; not all patches have to fix code to be important.

Hook 42 at New England Drupal Camp

We're super excited to attend New England Drupal Camp this year!

Aimee is honored to have been invited to be the keynote speaker this year. She'll be discussing inclusion and diversity in the community. In addition to Aimee's keynote, we are partnering up with our longtime friends at Lingotek to put together a hands-on multilingual workshop that covers Drupal 8 and an integration to Lingotek's Translation Management System.

Just in case that wasn't enough, we're also presenting a couple of sessions. One comparing the madness of the multilingual modules on Drupal 7 to the new and improved Drupal 8 multilingual approach. We will be presenting another session covering how ANYONE and EVERYONE can help contribute back to the Drupal project even if they aren't the most advance technical person

How to Help with the Drupal 8 Contrib Porting Tracker

Drupal 8 RC2 is out and a full release is coming on November 19th! But, in order to make more great websites on Drupal 8, we need to port a bunch of contrib projects from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. There are a LOT of contrib projects out there (over 12,000 modules, themes, and distributions!), so the new Drupal 8 Contrib Porting Tracker helps track these projects so the community can see what’s going on in a centralized place.
