Drupal Chat: Is the Drupal project a meritocracy?

Submitted by Marc on Sun, 03/27/2016 - 8:56am

On more than one occasion I've heard a person (such as Angie Byron) say that Drupal is a meritocracy. I've also heard Drupal described as a "do-it-ocracy." What do these things mean? Are they true?

Drupal Chat: The Drupal Learning Curve

Submitted by Marc on Fri, 02/05/2016 - 12:33pm

There is a joke about the Drupal learning curve that relates it to the Drupal learning cliff. And while the graph generally gets things confused (by placing time on the x-axis instead of the y-axis), the sentiment is understood. Until a person is able to get her/his head around how Drupal does things, it's quite possible to spend a great deal of time to accomplish very little. Even worse, it's possible to spend a great deal of time developing really bad habits.

Drupal Chat: What About Drupal 8?

Submitted by Marc on Sat, 01/30/2016 - 11:17am

Drupal 8 was released just over two months ago. Is it time yet for you to start using it on your production sites?

You'll need to consider the state of the modules you typically use to build your sites, the state of the themes you typically use to build your sites, the nature of the site, the budget for the site and your own skill set.

There are, without a doubt, sites that are being launched on Drupal 8 already. And, at the same time there is this:

So, there is obviously still work to be done.
