MidCamp 2020 Early-bird Sponsorship Midwest Drupal Camp (MidCamp) 2020, on March 18-21, will be the seventh-annual Chicago-area event that brings together designers, developers, users, and evaluators of the open source Drupal content management software. Attendees come for four days of presentations, professional training, contribution sprints, and socials while brushing shoulders with Drupal service providers, hosting vendors, and other members of the broader web development community.
For 2020, tables will be exclusive to Core sponsors, and the early-bird rate will be $2500, increasing to $3000 on June 1, 2019. Core sponsors will have the option to add on $1000 for "naming rights" to any component of camp they choose—a party, Training Day, Contribution Day, snacks, coffee, or something else.

Horizontal Integration: A custom Styles library with Config Entities
In this project we had built a collection of components using a combination of Paragraphs and referenced block entities. While the system we built was incredibly flexible, there were a number of variations we wanted to be able to apply to each component. We also wanted the system to be easily extensible by the client team going forward. To this end, we came up with a system of configuration entities that would allow us to provide references to classes and thematically name these styles. We built upon this by extending the EntityReferenceSelections plugin, allowing us to customize the list of…

Freely Give Blog: A Proposed Drupal privacy initiative and the Cross CMS privacy group.
Note this is a copy of page: https://joomla.github.io/cross-cms-compliance/drupalprivacyandcrosscmsgroup
At this point in the history of the open web, privacy is arguably the key issue in software development. As a range of scandals arising from the misuse of data bring pressure on governments and civil society to take action, it is important for software projects - including Drupal - to take proactive steps to value, resource, and support privacy work.
To date, the Drupal project has largely been reliant on the community to take the lead on privacy work. Development initiatives on privacy issues have mostly centred around contributed modules to implement privacy standards required by the EU’s GDPR privacy legislation.
The status of Drupal’s work on privacy was discussed at great length at Drupal Europe last year with members of the WordPress and Joomla communities, as well as a variety of community members in Drupal who are continuing to focus on privacy beyond GDPR.
As a result, we created the Cross-CMS privacy group, where participants from a number of open source CMSes learn from each other and work to bring our respective software ecosystems towards a common open standards and principles.
For DrupalCon Seattle we would like to present a core privacy initiative that will bring together some of the existing work in contrib as well as the efforts of the others in...
Droptica: 5 reasons why Drupal is more secure than any other CMS
You can find many comparisons between popular CMS systems on the internet. Whenever Drupal is mentioned in them, it is always described with words like: safe, open, regularly updated. Today I'm going to explain why it has such an opinion. I will also present evidence that the level of security claimed by the Drupal community is not just empty words.
Here are five reasons behind the Drupal's safety:
You'll probably say: most CMS systems are distributed using the Open Source model. Why would that be Drupal's advantage? But take a broader look at CMS ecosystems. Almost all are available under open licenses, but their modules, plug-ins and skins are also being distributed using a purely commercial model. In the case of WordPress – the sale of add-ons is quite popular, and it limits the openness of their code.

Aten Design Group: When to Consider Decoupled Drupal
With all the excitement about decoupled Drupal over the past several years, I wanted to take a moment to articulate a few specific factors that make headless a good approach for a project – as well as a few that don’t. Quick disclaimer: this is definitely an oversimplification of an otherwise complex subject, and is based entirely on our experience here at Aten. Others will draw different conclusions, and that’s great. In fact, the diversity of perspectives and conclusions about use cases for headless underscores just how incredibly flexible Drupal is. So here’s our take.
First, What is Decoupled?
I’ll keep this real short: decoupled (or headless) Drupal basically means using Drupal for backend content management, and using a separate framework (Angular, React, etc.) for delivering the front-end experience. It completely decouples content presentation (the head) from content management (the body), thus “headless”. There are tons of resources about this already, and I couldn’t come close to covering it as well as others already have. See Related Reading at the end of this post for more info.
Decoupled and Progressively Decoupled
For the purpose of this post, Decoupled Drupal means any Drupal backend that uses a separate technology stack for the front-end. Again, there’s lots of great material on the difference between “decoupled” and “progressively decoupled”. In this post...

wishdesk.com: A simple tour on using Drupal 8 Views contextual filters
Views added to Drupal core is one of the most frequently mentioned Drupal 8 benefits. Drupal Views gives us a UI for creating data collections based on any desired criteria. One of the ways to fine-tune the results is to use Drupal Views filters. A level higher from regular filters stand contextual filters that accept dynamic values. This helps us create flexible and interesting solutions. Let’s review Drupal 8 Views contextual filters in more detail.
