Recently, the Association posted a discussion here in groups (https://groups.drupal.org/node/398548) which resulted in the Association registering Drupal.org to participate in TheDayWeFightBack (https://drupal.org/node/2188053). As we have discussed, there were technical issues we could have addressed differently (see the discussion: https://groups.drupal.org/node/407283), but we also heard from many community members who felt that Drupal.org should never be involved in any kind of political campaign at all.Read more
A couple months ago, at the BADCamp devops summit, we held a workshop to discuss the architecture and operation of the current Drupal.org Automated Testing infrastructure, as well as to review a proposed future state architecture for the platform.
This post is an attempt to summarize the discussion, outline the proposed architecture as presented, and discuss some next steps.Read more
DrupalCampChina 2014 is a one day event that focuses on many aspects of Drupal in one location. Its focus is knowledge sharing among the community. Essentially, you’re getting the community together to do some community training. The term "Camp" comes from Barcamp, like an informal non-conference that happens at a bar.
Generally speaking, DrupalCampaChina is an extension of a meetup (e.g. the meetups in Shanghai).
On April 25 - 27, join us for the second DrupalCamp Donetsk (Ukraine)!
The event will include two days of sessions and BoFs (in English and Russian), trivia night, Drupal Party, and full day code sprint. It is a great opportunity to meet East European Drupal community.
Come and share your Drupal knowledge and ideas, sessions in English are welcome. And if all the sprints during Dev Days Szeged just weren't enough, you can work on Drupal 8 some more at our Sunday code sprint!
Registrations are already open: http://camp2014.drupal.dn.ua/en/conference/ticketsRead more

Drupal Developer Days 2014 is coming up quick in Szeged, Hungary from March 24th (Mon) to the 30th (Sun) 2014. Szeged, Hungary may sound like it is the middle of nowhere but what do you need to get together with a bunch of Drupal developer friends and learn about and advance the platform together? As those who have been to DrupalCon Europe 2008 in the same city know, Szeged is the ideal place for just that. Check out our interviews about those experiences.
Here are some quick facts about Drupal Dev Days 2014:
- A whole week of sprints with two core committers (Alex Pott and Nathaniel Catchpole) as well as the testbot system maintainer (Jeremy Thorson) on location! Could we help more to make progress? Oh, most top European Drupal developers are already signed up to come as well!
- Three days of sessions and workshops (50 topics providing 56 hours of content). Get lots of readily applicable know-how including website monitoring, e-commerce, practical scrum, Vagrant, product development in real life, Heisencache, IDE tricks and so on. Look into how Drupal is made, see the life of a core maintainer, get gamification tips or discuss a new type of money: Druplicoins!
- Want to work on upgrading your modules to Drupal 8 but don't know how? No problem! Additionally to learning about all the new Drupal 8 subsystems, there is a bring-your-own-module workshop as well, where mentors will help you upgrade your module!
- Want to get into Drupal development? Attend the community tools workshop and learn all the tools we use to communicate and work on solutions and learn and enjoy how the Drupal mentoring program works.
A truly fantastic opportunity isn't it? Last but not least its also very cheap. The ticket is only 30 Euros for the whole week! If you want to get to know Drupal 8 or even help make it happen, this is the place to be in March. Note that some cheap hotel deals expire this week. Don't miss out!Read more
