Thank you to the Drupal Europe team and attendees!
Members of the Drupal Association team joined the community to attend Drupal Europe in September. It was a fantastic event, and we had many great conversations with local community leaders, Supporting Partners, and others about the challenges and opportunities of the European market.
The Drupal.org Engineering Team also met with a number of contributors at Drupal Europe to move forward initiatives like improving Composer support for core, automatic updates, and more.
Reminder: DrupalCon Seattle Early Bird Registration is open now
DrupalCon Seattle general registration is open now. The programming has been transformed to address the needs of Builders, Content and Digital Marketers, Agency Leaders, and Executives, while preserving that feeling of homecoming for the community that is central to every DrupalCon.
Have questions about the next evolution of DrupalCon? Head of Events Amanda Gonser was recently interviewed by Lullabot for their podcast and explains what’s new and what’s staying the same.
A video prototype of our integration with GitLab
Are you as excited as we are about the upcoming migration to GitLab? Watch this video for a visual prototype of the integration we’re planning.
We should be announcing a window for our Phase 1 migration shortly.
Phase 1 of Improved Support for Composer begins
In September we moved forward with our multi-phase proposal for improving Drupal core’s support for Composer workflows. There are still considerations under discussion, such as how to handle multi-site support, and the implementation details of the later phase. However, Phase 1 has now been broken into its own meta issue, with a goal of bringing these changes into Drupal as of release 8.7.
Seeking a Technical Program Manager
The Drupal Association seeks a Technical Program Manager (TPM) to join our Engineering team and shepherd key programs for Drupal.org that empower our global community to collaborate and build the Drupal project. A TPM is expected to be technically fluent, have excellent project management skills, and excel in internal and external communication. The Drupal Association serves one of the largest global open source communities — Drupal has pioneered open source for 17 years. Join our incredible, mission-driven team and make an important impact by building the tools that help our community build Drupal.
Join Promote Drupal
At Drupal Europe we kicked off the volunteer coordination for Promote Drupal. We’ve put together an introductory video that explains how to get your marketing teams involved.
Just go to the Promote Drupal landing page to sign up!
Further improvements for inclusivity on Drupal.org
Thanks to the community contributed work of @justafish, among others, Drupal.org user profiles now include fields for pronouns, primary language, and location, to help give people cultural context as they interact with each other online. We’ll be adding options to show this information with comments throughout Drupal.org.
As always, we’d like to say thanks to all the volunteers who work with us, and to the Drupal Association Supporters, who make it possible for us to work on these projects. In particular we want to thank:
- SiteGround – Renewing Classic Hosting Supporter
- UniMity Solutions – Renewing Classic Supporting Partner
