Newsfeeds Blog: AGILEDROP: Top Drupal blog post from December

Planet Drupal - 4 January 2018 - 5:02pm
The most magical month of the year has ended. It didn't just bring us gifts but great Drupal blog posts as well. Let’s see which one we liked the most.   First one on the list is GraphQL for Drupalers - The fields by Blazej Owczarczyk  from Amazee Labs. It is the third article in the series of blog posts about GraphQl. This one talks about the fields, what exactly are they, and explains how do Drupal fields become GraphQL fields. Blazej also shows us different groups of Drupal fields with examples.    We continue our list with our second choice is Why now is the right time to move to… READ MORE

Planet Drupal - 4 January 2018 - 3:14pm

Over on the ELMS:LN team, we’ve been busy every place not Drupal (huh what?) lately. We have barely been touching Drupal and couldn’t be happier (…huh?). In fact, we’re busy these days encouraging people to not focus on Drupal, at all (so this is on planet then why…).

Tabletop Gaming News - 4 January 2018 - 2:00pm
The secretive Council is negotiating the fate of planets. The negotiations are tense, as each Council Member has their own agenda. It’s not easy for the planets, either.

'Will I look dumb?' Human-like virtual assistants can deter help-seeking

Virtual Reality - Science Daily - 4 January 2018 - 12:34pm
Virtual assistants have become increasingly sophisticated -- and more human-like -- since the days when Clippy asked if you needed help with your document. These assistants are intended to make programs and apps easier to use, but research suggests that human-like virtual assistants may actually deter some people from seeking help on tasks that are supposed to measure achievement.

Jacob Rockowitz: Webform, Drupal, and Open Source...Where are we going?

Planet Drupal - 4 January 2018 - 11:12am

Tagged the first release candidate on Christmas Day

On the one year anniversary of the first beta release of the Webform module for Drupal 8, I tagged the first release candidate. The most significant aspect of moving the Webform module into the release candidate phase is the stabilization of key APIs and plugins. Moving forward, most new features that are not tightly coupled to the Webform module's core functionality will be developed in dedicated experimental or contrib modules.

What’s next?

My first goal is to start focusing on the recording of Webform-related training materials and my upcoming presentations at Drupal Camps and conferences. I also want to encourage and help more people get involved and contribute to the Webform module and Drupal.

Contributing to the Webform module and Drupal

People are continually commenting on my dedication to the Webform module. As such, I think it’s important to explain why I am so committed to the success of the Webform module and Drupal. The two most important factors that have allowed me to contribute so much time to the Webform module are as follows: I have the time available and I have a desire to improve my professional profile. I’m fortunate to have steady and reliable consulting income. For many years, I was a passive member of the Drupal community. But then my schedule freed up a bit, and I found that I had some extra time on my hands, so I decided to experiment and see what would happen if I fully committed myself to an open source project.

What I learned about maintaining an open source project

The role of being an open source project maintainer is daunting. I was surprised to learn that I am doing 95% of the...Read More

Phalanx Posts UBOOT Board Game Kickstarter Preview

Tabletop Gaming News - 4 January 2018 - 10:00am
Life on a submarine is rough. It’s claustrophobic and you’re fighting enemies that you really can’t see (and hopefully can’t see/detect you). And it’s not like you can just jump overboard if there’s a hole in the ship. This cramped, tense feeling is just what Phalanx is looking to bring to your tabletops with their […]
