Angie "webchick" Byron: #DrupalOriginStories
For DrupalCamp Belarus in mid-May, I'll be giving a talk entitled "Tales of Drupal Past: Origin Stories of Drupal Contributors." My goal is to feature folks from the Drupal community and share their stories of coming into Drupal, with the goal to help inform and inspire others about our community, coming from a wide range of diverse perspectives/backgrounds. How about... YOU? What were you doing before Drupal? How'd you get your start? What are you doing now? How has Drupal changed/impacted your life? I would really appreciate any responses, whether in the comments here, on your own blogs, and/or on social media (with the #DrupalOriginStories tag, please). (Especially if you're based in Eastern Europe, I would love to hear from you!) I can share mine, as a start... (Feel free to make yours shorter or longer than this, however! :)) I first encountered Drupal because I'm one of those people who runs around "viewing-source" on websites I visit to see what's ticking under the hood. I first saw Drupal in the source of Spread Firefox, where fans of the Firefox web browser crowd-sourced marketing/promotion materials/events, and ran across it sometime later (2005) in the list of Google Summer of Code mentoring organizations. I was a huge fan of FLOSS/open source for many years prior to this (first installed Linux in 1995 when Debian fit on like 7 floppy disks, lol), but always...

Sooper Drupal Themes: Customer Experience: 6 key insights to prevent your customers from leaving you
How do customers choose a brand or company? When we think of what influences a consumer on which brand to pick we usually think of advertising, right? Well, while advertising does have some impact in the customer decision making process, what matters more is the customer experience provided. Nowadays, in order for a company to be able to stay relevant in the field that it is activating, it has to be able to provide a seamless customer experience.

AddWeb Solution: What is govCMS?
What is govCMS? The govCMS distribution is supported in Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 version, which has installation profiles for Australian government websites and it is being actively managed on Github (https://github.com/govCMS/govCMS8) and features are maintained from https://www.govcms.gov.au/.
  To work with govCMS, we have to take care of some factors in order to create a site with the govCMS platform.
  They have limited number of the module they support and we have to stick to that only and need to find alternate options with the twig and preprocess functions only and they do not allow us to create custom modules as well.
  Here is the list of modules that they support: https://www.govcms.gov.au/govCMS-d7-modules
  Unfortunately supported modules for Drupal 8 are less compare to Drupal 7, but we can create support request of community and if it's valid then they can include a module on SaaS platform.
  Our Experience about working with govCMS We have worked with govCMS for one of our clients from Australia, who is working with another agency before we met, and already he had started site development with them, and fortunately, he gets to know about the quality of work done so far from the previous agency.   They have added lots of contrib modules and to achieve some functionality they have created custom modules as well, but as the...
Flocon de toile | Freelance Drupal: Automatically provide options to a list field type with Drupal 8
Drupal 8 has a multitude of field types to cover a large number of use cases and situations when it comes to structuring and modeling content. Among these, we have a List field type which, as its name suggests, allows us to configure an input field based on a list of predefined options. This list of options must be set manually in the field's storage options at the time of creation. But we can also use this field based on a list of options that can be provided dynamically. Let's look at how we need to proceed to have a field that allows us to choose from a list of dynamic options.
Lullabot: UX For Kids: A Personal Journey
As a user experience designer, most of my career has been focused on designing for adults. When the opportunity arose to help redesign a product for kids, I jumped at the chance to learn something new. Though, switching focuses from serving adult audiences to children proved to be a challenge. I'm not a parent and also usually do not interact with kids on a daily basis.
