I’m a senior developer at Kalamuna with 22 years of experience developing sites (with the last 6 or so in Drupal) so I was pretty excited to jump into Drupal 8 when it was released. I jumped in feet-first and without much preparation on my first D8 site. Once I got behind the scenes, I saw right off the bat that adopting it will be a massive shift for everyone who has ever been involved with the project. After building two sites and working on a third, I’ve got some predictions and lessons to share. We will address fun topics such as: What will D8 mean for developers? Why move to OOP PHP? Will people adopt Drupal 8? What are the things that will make Drupal 8 easier to use? Finally, we will also cover what you can do to embrace the change and continue on with your Drupal conquests.
“Jimmy’s mom lets him have full-width background images. You’re THE WORST.” Sometimes Drupal feels like an overbearing mother who won’t let us out of the house wearing ripped jeans and that fake nose ring. Just like every well-meaning parent, Drupal does a good job of managing our content, but when it comes to doing what the cool kids are doing it can sometimes be a struggle. Such is the case when we want to use full-width background images. In this article, I show you how to create them in Drupal— and empower users to manage them— so you can join the nose-ringed rebels.
Nonprofits around the world use Drupal to create sites because it provides a low-cost, flexible and scalable platform for any kind of organization. It offers thousands of modules and contributions from its community to tailor sites to fit their unique needs. So how do you use Drupal to fit your particular project?

Greetings readers. I’m a Senior Developer and Support Manager at Kalamuna. My main job is to de-jankify websites we inherit in the support universe. To do this, I’ve had to continue to teach myself how to debug sites. I was thrown into Drupal about 6 years ago and have stuck with it since. In that time, I’ve tried many different debugging tools and methods. Lucky for you, I found what works and what doesn’t. Below you’ll see what I’ve found to be the easiest and quickest way to debug Drupal Sites.
As a professional at a higher education institution, how can you find Drupal resources on campus and use them to super-power your website? Familiarity with these people can make the difference between a successful and a failed project. In this post I outline a few easy ways to start finding what you need to use Drupal at your university.
It's that time of year again, when Drupal developers from far and wide come to take advantage of the lingering California summer and revel in Drupal nirvana at the Bay Area Drupal Camp (aka "BADCamp").
Wait, is This BADCamp 2011? This Drupalcon felt a bit more like a camp than conference. It was more modest in scale than the Drupalcons I’ve attended in North America, and a high percentage of attendees were developers rather than businesspersons exploring Drupal as a solution to their online needs.
Drupal 8 is here. Almost. As a marketing or IT leader at your university you’ve got enough to worry about. Let’s hold hands.
Two continents. Three Drupal events. One summer that would define the future of Drupal. This is the second post in a three-part series detailing the fantastic advances in the Drupal world that Kalamunist Alec Reynolds witnessed in his journeys to NYC Camp, GovCon in Washington DC, and Costa Rica Drupal Camp.
Two continents. Three Drupal events. One summer that would define the future of Drupal. This is a three-part series detailing the fantastic advances in the Drupal world that Kalamuna co-founder Alec Reynolds witnessed in his journeys to NYC Camp, GovCon in Washington DC, and Costa Rica Drupal Camp. NYC Camp was about company mergers and Drupal in the context of other open-source technologies. And what better place to celebrate Drupal as part of a greater community of technologies than amongst the utopian art and blue-shirted guards of the United Nations building?
