Well, if you’re a fan of the Combat Patrol rules set and playing in the Napoleonic Era, have we got good […]

Planet Drupal - 11 January 2017 - 11:31am

Yesterday I presented Drupal VM Tips & Tricks at the DrupalDC meetup, remotely. I didn't have a lot of time to prepare anything for the presentation, but I thought it would be valuable to walk through some of the neat features of Drupal VM people might not know about.

Here's the video from the presentation:

Midweek Snippets

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 January 2017 - 11:00am
We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just open the windows when I get home. […]

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 January 2017 - 10:00am
Sure, despite being deaf, dumb, and blind, Tommy could play a mean game of pinball, but what about looking at the game from the ball’s point of view? That’s what you’ll be doing in Pinball Showdown, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter now. Humongous shoes for Elton John sold separately. From the campaign: […]

Olympus, Inc. Now Available In .PDF

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 January 2017 - 9:00am
I have some friends who are followers of the old Norse gods. Like, legit-wise. You hear about that from time to time, but you don’t hear too many people saying they’re followers of the old, Olympian pantheon. Maybe that’s by design. Maybe it’s because there’s a secret war going on between Olympians and Titans all […]

Fantasy Flight Posts Interview With id Software’s Sean Bean

Tabletop Gaming News - 11 January 2017 - 7:00am
I remember playing the original Doom video game at my neighbor’s house. My friend had the game and we played all the time. You really could die pretty easily in it, and we very often did. That was good, of course, since it meant you weren’t far from having your own turn playing. And who […]

Planet Drupal - 11 January 2017 - 5:16am

We’re taking it up a couple notches this year down in Orlando for the 9th Florida DrupalCamp! We're expanding in every dimension we can find - highlighted by an opening day (Friday) of full-day workshops followed by two days (Saturday and half-day Sunday) of sessions!

Amazing Trainings

In previous years, we’ve had concurrent trainings on Saturdays and some sprinting on Sunday. This year, we changed it up: Friday will be a full training day including workshops on:

  • Beginning React JS - taught by John Tucker
  • Docker for Development with Drupal - taught by Lisa Ridley  
  • Introduction to Drupal 8 - taught by DrupalEasy's own Michael Anello  
  • Introduction to Drupal 8 Theming - taught by Suzanne Dergacheva
  • Introduction to DrupalVM - taught by Ben Hosmer

The best part is that trainings are included with the price of the ticket (now $35). You sign up for the training when registering. Space is limited, however, so register soon!

Three Phenomenal Featured Speakers

We have three amazing featured speakers this year!

Many More Extraordinary Sessions and Speakers

We have over 30 sessions already submitted with several weeks to go until the deadline. We still need more. Check them out and submit your session soon.

Kick-A** Weather

Orlando in February. Sunny and warm :)

The Absolute Best Sponsors Ever

It's true, we have the best group of sponsors money can't buy! We're crazy-happy about having Achieve Agency as our top-level Platinum sponsor. This newly formed South Florida shop is looking to make a big splash in the community, and we're happy that we can help introduce them to everyone. 

Combined with Johnson & Johnson, devPanel, and Digital Echidna as Gold-level sponsors as well as all of our other amazing supporters (including DrupalEasy!), we're excited to bring you the biggest and best Drupal event you've ever seen (not to mention a few fun surprises!)

Lots More Sensational Stuff!

From a new logo, great catering, t-shirt, giveaways, and even an integrated video game easter-egg on our website, there’s lots to be had. Don't miss it!  Register today or regret it for the rest of 2017!

CSV to Config

New Drupal Modules - 11 January 2017 - 4:06am

This module converts CSV to configuration.
It is very useful when you need to create a large number of configurations.

** Since, its the first version, it only supports one level structure key/value pairs. **

Limitations

The imported options will override the full configuration. There is no
support for merging with existing configurations.
Also, we have plans to support more complex structures, i.e. nested configurations.
