Late last year, we upgraded our blog from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. Our main objective was to invest in our skills within Kalamuna so we could, in turn, better serve our clients. We have a lot of Drupal 8 migrations lined up over the course of the next year or so, and we foresee many more coming down the pipeline. This gave us a chance to learn the ins and outs of Drupal 8, with the added value of sprucing up our very own blog. This post is a summary of takeaways from our experience that I hope will help you on your own Drupal 8 adventures.
Once upon a time, a Drupal shop owner hired a contractor for a project. The contractor signed papers, met the team, and then started work. On the first day, the contractor’s invoice listed “local environment setup” as a line item. On the second day, the contractor’s invoice listed “problems refreshing local environment” as a line item. On the third day, the contractor’s invoice listed “fixing PHP version-related error” as a line item. Are you a character in this story? Does it have a happy ending?
I’m proud to announce that we’re broadening access to Drupal development tools by creating Kalabox 2.0 -- now in the works. The new version, supported by a Kickstarter campaign (and hopefully, you!) will include technologies that will make it faster, easier to use, and accessible to a much wider user base.
Greetings. I'm Kalabot John, and this is my journey with Kettering University and Pantheon Systems.
