Have you ever needed to generate URL aliases for an entity based on specific set of conditions? I was recently on a Drupal 8 project that needed the ability to generate custom URL aliases based on very specific criteria outlined by the client. Out of the box, Pathauto module was not flexible enough to handle the customization, but leveraging its API and providing my own hook implementation in a custom module allowed me to perform conditional checks on data and build the conditional URL structures.
Retaining female gamers: Leveraging sexual harassment's asymmetrical impact in tailoring interventions - by Quinn Poisson
Welcome to the Gnomecast, the Gnome Stew’s tabletop gaming advice podcast. Here we talk with the other gnomes about gaming things to avoid becoming part of the stew. So I guess we’d better be good. This episode we have Ang, Chris, & J.T talking about reading the table and experiences they’ve had where a player they thought wasn’t having fun is having an amazing time.
As Drupal specialists, we’re proud to be the largest Acquia Certified team in Europe. And last month our development manager Mark Pavlitski became the first person in the UK to achieve Drupal 8 Grand Master status!
This special recognition is awarded to best of the best Drupal Developers, and requires the participant to pass three exams: Acquia Certified Developer, Back-end Specialist, and Front-end Specialist.
In this post, Mark shares his insights into the certification process.The exams
I started with the Drupal 8 Developer test, which is more general than the subsequent two, and covers Drupal site building, theming, module development and fundamental web concepts.
Then I sat the Drupal 8 Front-end Specialist exam which, as the name implies, is focussed on front-end development and Drupal theming concepts. I found this the most challenging of the three, having had more back-end experience. But most of the questions are written in a way that will be familiar to an experienced Drupal developer.
Finally, I sat the Drupal 8 Back end specialist exam. I found this one more straightforward, given my experience, though still challenging at times.My tips for other developers
Acquia’s certification tests take place on Kryterion’s WebAssessor platform. Officially it supports Macs, but I found I had various issues with the software. Although their support was very helpful, I ended up switching to a Windows laptop to take the tests.
All of the questions are scenario based, describing a Drupal development problem with multiple choice answers. There were a couple of typos and one or two ambiguously worded questions, but overall the tests are presented in a way that will make sense to any seasoned Drupal developer.The results
I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly the test results appear on the Acquia certification registry. The test portal says the results will take a couple of weeks to appear, but in my case it was as quick as a few hours.
Overall my experience with the Acquia Certification programme was great. The tests were well structured, and challenging but not confusing. I’d definitely recommend certification as a way for Drupal businesses and professionals to validate their skills and experience.
