Chapter Three: How to Register an Event Subscriber in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 26 May 2016 - 7:30am

Events in Drupal 8 allow for different components of the system to interact and communicate with each other. One system component dispatches the event at an appropriate time; many events are dispatched by Drupal core and the Symfony framework in every request. Other system components can register as event subscribers; when an event is dispatched, a method is called on each registered subscriber, allowing each one to react.

Most of the hooks from previous versions of Drupal were removed in Drupal 8 in favor of Events. Example: hook_boot() which now can be done by registering an event subscriber.

I will use the following structure for the example module:

Evolving Web: Drush Commands for Themers and Site Builders

Planet Drupal - 26 May 2016 - 7:02am

Most people think that using the drush command-line tool is only something hardcore developers do, but it turns out it's also super-helpful for site builders and theme developers too! In my experience, using drush will speed up from 3 to 10 times usual Drupal Admin tasks, compared with visiting the Drupal admin pages in the browser.

LevelTen Interactive: DrupalCon[densed] 2016: The Best Project Management Sessions

Planet Drupal - 25 May 2016 - 10:00pm

What do you get when you put two Project Managers in one hotel room for a week at DrupalCon? A lot of work, a lot of laughter, and a lot of learning. Don’t worry, we didn’t kill each other… yet.

With our days spent in sessions and nights spent on Bourbon Street or answering client emails (not at the same time), DrupalCon New Orleans was a truly illuminating experience. I came to LevelTen a year ago not even knowing what “...Read more

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Highly available Drupal on a Raspberry Pi Cluster - phptek 2016 session

Planet Drupal - 25 May 2016 - 5:52pm

Another year, another field trip for the Pi Dramble—my 5-Raspberry-Pi cluster! I presented a session titled Highly available Drupal on a Raspberry Pi Cluster at php[tek] 2016, which just so happens to have moved to my hometown, St. Louis, MO this year!

For this presentation, I remembered to record the audio using a lav mic plugged into my iPhone, as well as iShowU to record what was on my screen. Sadly, I didn't have a secondary camera to capture the Pi Dramble itself, but you can glance at all the other 'Let's build a Pi Cluster' videos if you want to see it in action!

Here's a video recording of the presentation:

Planet Drupal - 25 May 2016 - 3:00pm

The Aaron Winborn Award was created in 2015 after the loss of one of one of the Drupal community’s most prominent members, Aaron Winborn, to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease in the US and Motor Neuron Disease in the UK). Aaron’s commitment to the Drupal project and community made him the epitome of our unofficial motto: "Come for the code, stay for the community". The Community Working Group with the support of the Drupal Association came together to honor Aaron's memory by establishing the Aaron Winborn Award, which annually recognizes an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community.

Nominations were opened in March, giving community members the opportunity to nominate people they believe deserve the award, which were then voted on by the members of the Community Working Group, along with previous winners of the award.

We are pleased to announce that the 2016 recipient of the Aaron Winborn Award is Gábor Hojtsy. During the closing session of DrupalCon New Orleans, Community Working Group members presented the award to Gábor. The award was accompanied by a free ticket to DrupalCon, which he donated to Bojhan Somers.

Gábor was described in his nomination as an "amazing community connector" who is passionate about empowering others, stepping aside and allowing others the space and support to lead, and celebrating even the small wins that people who work with him achieve. The stellar work and leadership he displayed on the D8 Multilingual Initiative, managing sprints, Drupal events and setting up are just a few of the ways that this tireless Drupal contributor has been making an enormous impact in our community for more than a decade.

We hope you will join us in congratulating Gábor, who has demonstrated personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community in abundance.
