Promote Drupal Initiative Announced at DrupalCon

Yesterday's Keynote from Drupal project founder, Dries Buytaert, kicked off the annual North American gathering of Drupalists from around the world, and also kicked off a new Drupal community initiative aimed at promoting the Drupal platform through a coordinated marketing effort using funds raised within the community.

Achieving Continuous Integration with Drupal

In the early 1990s, my first job out of college was as a software engineer at a startup company. We were building a commercial product using a well-known open-source network security project. In those days, Agile software development practices (not to mention the World Wide Web, or even widespread public awareness of the Internet) still were in the future.

Speed Up Your Drupal Development Using Installations and Distributions

Do you find yourself repeating the same steps whenever you start a new Drupal project? Do you always download and enable the same modules, and make the same configuration changes every time? As we start doing more and more Drupal projects at Nomensa, I noticed that we were doing exactly this, so I started to look into ways to streamline our initial project setup process.

Creating and Theming a Custom Content Type with Drupal 7

One of the great new things about Drupal 7 is that it's now easier to customize your site content. In Drupal 6, you typically had to use the CCK (Content Construction Kit) module for fine-grained control in customizing content, but that has been folded into core for Drupal 7. Drupal 7 is now a true content management framework (CMF).

Drupal Special Edition

As Linux Journal's resident Drupal nerd, I could not be more pleased to bring you this special Drupal issue. Drupal really is everywhere these days, and it's available in more "flavors" than most people in the Open Source community are aware of.

Basic Web Design with Drupal 7

Drupal is one of the most popular and versatile platforms for Web design. It's free, open source and will run on Linux. Early last year, a new version was released (Drupal 7), making it even better with improvements in usability, performance and security. If you've looked at Drupal before, but didn't end up using it, you may want to take another look.

DrupalCon London is Around the Corner

Many of you know what a huge Drupal fan I am, and while I am a bit heartbroken that I will not attend the upcoming DrupalCon London, happening August 22-26 in Croydon, I'd like to give the rest of you the skinny on DrupalCon so you can all go have fun without me.  To that end, I got a few tidbits from Robert Castelo, one of DrupalCon's organizers.

DrupalCon Rocked Chicago

DrupalCon has sadly come to a close.  After three whirlwind days, I can say that the Drupal community is definitely going strong, and a few Drupal companies have some very interesting developments on the horizon.

On My Way to DrupalCon!

 As you may have heard, Drupal's biggest annual event starts next week.  This year's North American DrupalCon will draw an expected crowd over over 3000 attendees, and offer something for a wide variety of Drupalers and future Drupalers, as well as web developers and designers in general.

Angela Byron on Drupal 7

Angela Byron is the co-maintainer of the Drupal open source content management system and framework.  She talked to us a bit about her role with the Drupal project, and Drupal 7, the recently released, latest version of Drupal.

Drupal 7 is Officially Here!

The long-awaited new version of the popular web content management system and platform was released today. It represents the hard work of almost 1000 developers (by Greg Knaddison's count) and countless other Drupal community members contributing their time and effort to testing and providing feedback.

Behind the Cloud It's Still Just Computers

I had the pleasure of joining a video conference with our local Drupal expert, Katherine Druckman, and Barry Jaspan, one of the system architects from Acquia. Acquia is a company that specializes in Drupal. While their company does many things for clients interested in using Drupal, we were specifically talking about cloud computing.
