Commerce Guys: Introducing Centarro Toolbox at DrupalCon Seattle

2 April 2019 - 4:04am

Commerce Guys is joining forces with some of our Technology Partners and a variety of contributors to promote Drupal Commerce at DrupalCon Seattle from April 9-11, 2019.

We're excited to introduce the Drupal community to Centarro Toolbox, a collection of SaaS products and support packages that help Drupal Commerce teams build with confidence. First revealed at MidCamp last month, we can't wait to show it off to the community at large while also connecting about all things Commerce 2.x.

Come demo Centarro Toolbox (and grab some sweet swag)

There's a lot to see inside Centarro Toolbox!

It includes three of our own SaaS tools designed to complement any Drupal Commerce site. They provide update automation, code quality monitoring, and a sales and analytics dashboard that delivers key insights to merchants. We've also bundled in offers from our partners at Avalara, Human Presence, and Lockr, and we'd love to share all about them.

We'll be handing out some exclusive swag this year, including our first pressing of custom coins ... no clue why it took us a decade to think that up! We're also stocking the booth with some rad sweatbands to keep your brows clean at the after parties Dave Grohl style. Finally, visitors to the booth can enter to win:

  • 1 of 3 copies of Preston So's book, Decoupled Drupal in Practice (winner chosen at random each day)
  • An Xbox One courtesy of PayPal (winner chosen at random Thursday afternoon)

Drupal Commerce in the spotlight

There's a lot to be said about how Drupal Commerce is making merchant and agency teams more productive, and you don't just have to take our word for it. Add the following sessions to your schedule to learn more:

Last but not least, if you've made it this far, chances are you're really into what we're doing with Drupal Commerce. If that's you, we'd like to invite you to an exclusive reception at Avalara's HQ. We'll enjoy food and beverages from the 18th floor looking out over downtown Seattle. The party will be from 6:30 - 8:30 PM Wednesday, but space is limited! Reach out in advance or find us early at the show to reserve your spot.

Schedule Time to Meet

If you're heading to DrupalCon, we'd love to chat about Drupal Commerce with you. Use our meeting request form to get on our calendar to discuss a particular project or need, or subscribe to our newsletter to be kept in the loop more generally.

Manifesto: So long Drupal 7, welcome Drupal 9

2 April 2019 - 3:03am

Drupal 7 was released back in 2011. Having served the Drupal Community and its users for more than 8 years, it’s now due to reach end-of-life (EOL) in November 2021. Meanwhile, Drupal 9 is due to be released in 2020, which means Drupal 8 will also reach EOL at the same time as Drupal 7.. Continue reading...

Promet Source: WCAG 2.1 in 7 Perspectives

1 April 2019 - 4:05pm
For those who don’t work in the trenches of digital accessibility, the guidelines can seem confusing or overwhelming. The fact is, it’s not necessary to know the details associated with the 73 individual Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 success criterion in order to make design decisions and ultimately contribute to a website planning session.

Jacob Rockowitz: Drupal is frustrating

1 April 2019 - 5:00am

Proceeding every article or blog post about the future of Drupal, there are always a few comments that express a high-level of frustration when it comes to Drupal 8. From missing modules, to completely rewritten APIs, to new design patterns, and even complaints about the restructuring of sessions and tracks at DrupalCon….People are frustrated with change. The entire Drupal community understands peoples’ frustration, which is why we are continually trying to improve the software and community. Our most significant strides happen at DrupalCons, where everyone comes to together to share codes, ideas, and passion.

Introspection before DrupalCon

Before last year’s DrupalCon I wrote a blog post titled, Drupal is the worst Content Management System except for all those other solutions in which I talked about Drupal adoption, sustainability, and mentorship. DrupalCon provides the Drupal community with an opportunity for everyone to take stock of where we are at and where we are going. Every year we have discussions with actionable items to improve our community, which is continually changing.

Each year, I get something different out of DrupalCon. Last year I became more aware of diversity and inclusion issues within the Drupal and software community. I was also inspired to address webform related accessibility issues. The overarching thing I have learned at DrupalCons is contributing to Open Source is more than writing code, it’s about collaboration and community.

What I like about this quote is it acknowledges two key aspects to Drupal - the code and community - with the code being the “what” that brings us together. The code might also be what is most frustrating to people coming and staying with Drupal....Read More

DrupalEasy: DrupalEasy Podcast 217 - Drupal Fools by Dr. Seuss

31 March 2019 - 9:00pm

Direct .mp3 file download.

Get ready for your trip to Seattle with this April Fool's Day special episode of the DrupalEasy Podcast.

Drupal Fools

a Dr. Seuss joint (sortof)

From the top of your head to the tips of your toes,
You are a Drupaller, everyone knows.

You think about Drupal all day and all night.
You’re more than obsessed with getting things right.

Your Views and your Fields and your Content Types,
Simply scream “Drupal!” here are some reasons why:

Your User Experience is so Steve Jobs-esque
Your Splash Awards medals are spilling off your desk!

Your API documentation site,
Lets your developers get sleep at night.
You’re well known to eat your own dog food.
When you’re done with work you’re still in a good mood.
And why not? Your patches have all been applied,
The hackers can’t get in, and they even tried!

I heard a rumor at DrupalCon Seattle,
That your coding standard leaves code reviewers rattled.
Before you go saying that I must be kidding,
Know that I suck a peek, I did some digging…
I couldn’t find one curly brace out of place,
One line break too many or one poor stack trace.

Have you ever noticed just how our community
Is one of the best at promoting unity?
We’re very good at giving hugs,
Especially to those who have fixed our bugs.
But if you’re not a fan of physical affection,
We don’t make a big deal of your objection.
(We’re still glad you chose to sit in our section)

Like Birds of a Feather or a Business of Ferrets,
The Drupal community celebrates merits.
Even if you don’t pretend to know code,
Your contribution deserves to be showed.
Webchick will help you, as luck would have it,
When your first core improvement is ready to commit.
(Stick around until Friday, and you won’t regret it)

And if this is your first time at DrupalCon...

Did you know that Drupal is eighteen years young?
We’re just getting started, we’re still having fun!
Of all websites, we’re say, five in a hundred,
The more ambitious ones are quite well funded,
But even for NGOs our scopes are not blunted.
We’ve got thousands of community projects,
To extend, integrate, and meet all of your specs.
Even if you don’t speak like a geek,
I’m sure the vendors won’t judge you like some kind of freak.
They’ll help you translate the Greek, so to speak.

If this is your first event, or your hundred and first,
We welcome you to dive in to Drupal head first.
Bring us a challenge, we’ll find you a guru,
As long as you understand our Kool-Aid is blue.
(We do have other interests besides Open Source,
We’re human aren’t we? Why yes, of course!)

Have you met Dries Buytaert? He’s the project’s creator.
Without him, I might be a Red Lobster waiter.
He’s tall and Belgian, well over two meters,
(Not that I’ve measured him, that would be cheating),
He’s the lead of this project and he helps set the agenda
To give us some staying power and stay just a bit trendy.
There are really so many others to thank,
Given ten thousand thank you notes, none would be blank.
It takes a village, at least that’s what I think.

So welcome to the land of rainstorms and coffee,
Of mega-giant software companies,
To DrupalCon Seattle, it’s like my family reunion.
Think Digital. Be Human.
