Modiphius Releases Capharnaum – The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG PDF

Tabletop Gaming News - 9 July 2018 - 12:00pm
I took just a couple semesters of French back in high school. As such, the amount that I remember now could be described as “pretty much useless.” So, if I wanted to play Capharnaum, I’d’ve been out of luck. That is, until now, as Modiphius has translated over this RPG for an English-speaking audience. You […]

Drupal blog: Why large organizations are choosing to contribute to Drupal

Planet Drupal - 9 July 2018 - 10:59am

This blog has been re-posted and edited with permission from Dries Buytaert's blog. Please leave your comments on the original post.

During my DrupalCon Nashville keynote, I shared a brief video of Mike Lamb, the Senior Director of Architecture, Engineering & Development at Pfizer. Today, I wanted to share an extended version of my interview with Mike, where he explains why the development team at Pfizer has ingrained Open Source contribution into the way they work.

Mike had some really interesting and important things to share, including:

  1. Why Pfizer has chosen to standardize all of its sites on Drupal (from 0:00 to 03:19). Proprietary software isn't a match.
  2. Why Pfizer only works with agencies and vendors that contribute back to Drupal (from 03:19 to 06:25). Yes, you read that correctly; Pfizer requires that its agency partners contribute to Open Source!
  3. Why Pfizer doesn't fork Drupal modules (from 06:25 to 07:27). It's all about security.
  4. Why Pfizer decided to contribute to the Drupal 8's Workflow Initiative, and what they have learned from working with the Drupal community (from 07:27 to 10:06).
  5. How to convince a large organization (like Pfizer) to contribute back to Drupal (from 10:06 to 12:07).

Between Pfizer's direct contributions to Drupal (e.g. the Drupal 8 Workflow Initiative) and the mandate for its agency partners to contribute code back to Drupal, Pfizer's impact on the Drupal community is invaluable. It's measured in the millions of dollars per year. Just imagine what would happen to Drupal if ten other large organizations adopted Pfizer's contribution models?

Most organizations use Open Source, and don't think twice about it. However, we're starting to see more and more organizations not just use Open Source, but actively contribute to it. Open source offers organizations a completely different way of working, and fosters an innovation model that is not possible with proprietary solutions. Pfizer is a leading example of how organizations are starting to challenge the prevailing model and benefit from contributing to Open Source. Thanks for changing the status quo, Mike!

Expandable Formatter

New Drupal Modules - 9 July 2018 - 10:48am

This module adds a field formatter that expands and collapses to obscure content that is longer than desired. It is similar in principle to Expanding Formatter, but operates in a different manner. Rather than trimming based on a number of characters, this module uses a specific height to trim the text. This results in a predictable layout every time.

RESOCARD Game Cosplay Card Game Up On Kickstarter

Cosplay is one of those aspects of the hobby that’s always intrigued me, but I never really got into.
