There’s bad data everywhere, but nowhere is it more insidious than when you encounter it for the first time while trying to migrate a website. Bad data, in this case, is defined as any data that doesn’t conform to the expectations of the migrator and their code, whether that’s because of bad data entry, surprising contextual requirements, or historical changes in value patterns. It can come at you from a variety of directions and can have surprising origins.
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
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.
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 are excited to be headed to NYC Camp this week! We are ready to rock the UN with our sessions and trainings... all capped off with a Drupal 8 Multilingual (D8MI) Sprint.
Building a multilingual site in Drupal 7 requires a lot of patience and a lot of special-purpose modules. Checkout my Multilingual Module Madness presentation from DrupalCon Portland if you want to learn more! ;)
