Continuing along with my series of reviews of Acquia Developer Certification exams (see the previous one: Drupal 8 Site Builder Exam, I recently took the Back End Specialist – Drupal 8 Exam, so I'll post some brief thoughts on the exam below.
I didn't get a badge with this exam, just a cert... so here's the previous exam's badge!
Auto Purge Users lets administrators delete inactive users based on time conditions. Users are selected as per criteria that check for different types of user inactivity. Some of the criteria that are used to select users are
• Those who exceed a configured period of inactivity
• Those who have not activated their account since registration
• Those who have not logged in for a long period can be auto-purged.
As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!
Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Views module to fix an Access Bypass vulnerability.
The Views module allows site builders to create listings of various data in the Drupal database.
The Views module fails to call db_rewrite_sql() on queries that list Taxonomy Terms, which could cause private data stored on Taxonomy Terms to be leaked to users without permision to view it.
This is mitigated by the fact that a View must exist that lists Taxonomy Terms which contain private data. If all the data on Taxonomy Terms is public or there are no applicable Views, then your site is unaffected.
See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.
Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.
If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Views module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)
If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.
Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
At GDC 2017 next week, veteran game devs from across the industry will have a boisterous discussion about the effects of data, creativity, and development constraints on the user experience in games. ...

From 16-19 February, the first Drupal Mountain Camp took place in Davos, Switzerland. A very diverse crowd of 135 attendees from, 17 different countries, came together to share the latest and greatest in Drupal 8 development, as well as case studies from Swiss Drupal vendors.Josef Dabernig Wed, 02/22/2017 - 14:14
When we started organizing Drupal Mountain Camp in the summer of 2016, it was hard to predict how much interest it would attract and how many people would join for the camp. By reaching out to the local and international Drupal ecosystem we were excited to get so many people to attend from all around the world including Australia, India, and the US.
As a team of a dozen organizers; we split up the tasks, like setting up the venue, registration, social media, room monitoring and much more. It was great seeing that we were able to split the workload across the entire team and keep it well balanced.
We are very thankful for 30 different speakers who travelled from afar and worked hard to share their expertise with the crowd. As a program organizer I might be biased, but I truly believe that the schedule was packed with great content :)
In addition to the sessions, we also provided free workshop trainings to help spread some more Drupal love.
We took all the speakers up to the mountain for Switzerland's most popular dish, cheese fondue, to say thank you for their sessions and inputs.
With Drupal Mountain Camp we wanted to set a theme that would not only excite attendees with Swiss quality sessions but also create a welcoming experience for everyone. On top of our Code of Conduct, we organized various social activities that would allow attendees to experience Switzerland, snow and the mountains.
Sprints are an essential way to get started with contributing to Drupal. At Drupal Mountain Camp, we organized a First-time sprinter workshop and had Sprint rooms from Thursday until Sunday with many sprinters collaborating.
And of course, we ended the conference with skiing and snowboarding at the Swiss mountains :)
