Spin the tires on D8 in this interactive session on Drupal site building

Drupal 8 is here and with it comes some new and exciting changes.  The site building component in D8 is chock full of new features and a fresh new look.  In this session we will explore some of what to expect when site building in Drupal 8 while getting hands on with stackstarter.io

Drupal and the New Front-end Workflow

With all of the advancements that we've seen in Drupal the connection between Drupal and a solid front-end development process is still an enigma. Drupal, for a multitude of different reasons, has been labeled as being not so nice to work with as a front-end developer. I'm here to tell you, that's simply not the case! Drupal gives you all of the tools that we need to translate your beautiful html designs into flexible, configurable layouts. We just need to change our front-end development workflow.

Why Your Site is Slow

Speed is one feature many clients assume they will get but do not always ask for. In fact, you are more likely to hear your clients ask for features or functionality that will make the site slower.

Community Contributions to Boost Your Bottom Line

Everyone who uses open-source software (and understands where it comes from!) knows that they should contribute something back; it's the right thing to do. The various reasons so few people contribute are often valid: perceived high barrier to entry, my employer won't let me, I don't have the time, etc… Only a small percentage of folks realize that contributing isn't a purely altruistic activity. Contributing actually leads to personal gains in skills, finances, and connections  - and the community is not only okay with that, it actually supports it.
