Mediacurrent: Contrib Committee Review for November 2018

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 01/02/2019 - 14:11

With the year winding down the month was a little quiet, but we still got some good contributions going.

Client sponsored

Thanks to our awesome clients for giving us a chance to help make open source software better for everyone.

Self-directed

Mediacurrent provides some extra time during the week for folks to scratch their own itches, and sometimes people triage issue queues instead of watching football on TV :-)

Blog posts

A little light this month, but there are still two good blog posts from our team.

Contrib Half Hour

We squeezed in four Contrib Half Hour meetings into the month, despite the company being closed for Turkey Day.

Events

Lots of folks were working on their presentation proposals for DrupalCon Seattle 2019. see Tara’s blog post for details. There are also several events coming up soon that we’ll be attending, including DrupalCamp NJ and Florida DrupalCamp in February and then NERDSummit in March.

Stay warm!

That’s it for this month. Hope everyone in the Northern Hemisphere stays warm, everyone in the Southern Hemisphere enjoys their summer, and the folks in the middle don’t brag too much!

ComputerMinds.co.uk: Drupal 7, 8 and 9 - When to Migrate

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 01/02/2019 - 13:48

Anyone familiar with the Drupal core development lifecycle will know that presently the Drupal community supports two major versions at any one time: the current major release and its immediate predecessor. This means that at ComputerMinds we are currently helping our clients support and develop both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 sites. So the obvious question that we get asked is ‘when is it time to upgrade’?

We can’t properly answer this question without bringing the next major release, Drupal 9, into the mix. So let’s look at the development timeline for these three versions. According to a blog post by Dries both Drupal 7 and 8 will have an end of life of no later than November 2021 with Drupal 9 being released roughly a year earlier in June 2020 to give site owners enough time to move over to Drupal 9. It is worth noting that from November 2021 only Drupal 9 will be supported. Dries outlines these dates with a whole bunch of details in this blog post.

Historically, migrating between major versions has been a considerable chunk of work as major versions aren’t backwards compatible; however, the good news is that migrating from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 should be a very straightforward process - so long as you’ve kept your Drupal 8 site up-to-date! This is good news for anyone that’s already taken the plunge into the world of Drupal 8 as the migration process shouldn’t really be any more involved than a minor upgrade. This is because the only real changes will be to remove deprecated code and update dependencies, such as Symfony (Symfony 3 has an end of life of November 2021, hence this date being cut off for support for Drupal 8).

For site owners still using Drupal 7 the question of when to upgrade is slightly more complicated. Do you wait for Drupal 9 and skip Drupal 8, or should you upgrade now? As previously mentioned we can be reasonably confident that upgrading from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 will be a straightforward process, so we don’t need to worry about having to redo lots of work a couple of years down the line if we do migrate to Drupal 8 now. So the question of when to migrate really varies depending on your current circumstance and preference.

Some site owners will want to benefit from new functionality added in Drupal 8 so will want to upgrade their Drupal 7 sites as soon as possible, whilst obviously factoring in how difficult and expensive the migration will be. Others will be perfectly happy sticking with Drupal 7 until support has ended, at which point they will have to port over in order to keep their site secure. Another piece of good news for anyone weighing up their options with Drupal 7 is that support for Drupal 7 will also be extended to November 2021 (previously support would have ended for Drupal 7 as soon as Drupal 9 was released) so this gives you another year to implement your migration to Drupal 9.

So the short answer of when to migrate your Drupal 7 site is really whenever is good for you. There’s no immediate rush and if you do opt to migrate to Drupal 8, as long as you keep your site up-to-date, upgrading to Drupal 9 when the time comes should be a cinch!

Matt Glaman: Two Zero One Nine

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 01/02/2019 - 13:06
Two Zero One Nine Published on Wednesday 2, January 2019 2018 was a weird year. It felt like it just zoomed by and nothing eventful happened. In fact, I feel like most people I have talked to this year felt the same exact way. But, then I sat down to my end of year write up and realized that this year was way more packed than I thought.

ComputerMinds.co.uk: Peer Review

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 01/02/2019 - 10:27

At ComputerMinds we like to think that we’re all pretty good at what we do; however, nobody is perfect and this is why we always ensure that our code is properly peer reviewed as part of our quality assurance process.

Peer review is literally just what the name implies; we work together to review each other’s code to make sure that it all makes sense. This approach means that we’re able to spot obvious mistakes before they become a problem. It also has the huge advantage of allowing us to transfer knowledge between our team on a day-to-day basis.

Pull Requests

The primary way we peer our code is to make use of GitHub’s pull requests (PR) feature. This means that whenever we need to do some work on a Git repo we start by creating a new feature branch which will contain the chunk of work that we’re doing. Then once we are happy with the code we’ve written in this branch we’ll go over to GitHub and create a PR to merge our branch in with another branch which we know is stable, for example the master branch. Before this merge happens GitHub’s PR tool will show all the changes between the the two branches so that they can be reviewed by another developer.

At ComputerMinds we use pull requests a lot. We don’t like to work directly on a stable branch as this way there is much more chance the bugs might slip through the net. By using pull requests we can be sure that our code is properly sanity checked before it makes its way over to a stable environment, be that a client facing testing branch or the live branch. GitHub also makes it easy to add comments directly to the pull request so any issues are full documented and feedback is clearly displayed.

Face to face

When dealing with a more in-depth code change, it's particularly helpful to talk face-to-face, as it allows the original developer to talk you through their changes and the thinking behind them. This allows the reviewer to have a much better understanding of what the original developer was aiming to achieve and to sanity-check their thinking. A 'meatspace' chat can be more difficult to achieve than just getting some comments on a pull request, but it's often worth the effort.

Finding the right fit

Both of these methods have their strengths and weaknesses. Pull requests are quick and easy to use; however, when dealing with larger sets of changes things may get overlooked, or may not be properly understood without knowledge of the bigger picture. Face to face reviews obviously take up more resources to conduct the review but do allow for a more in-depth review where the bigger picture can be clearly explained by the original developer.

Obviously it goes without saying that these two approaches to peer review aren’t mutually exclusive - there are plenty of meatspace chats going on around the office about various PRs.

At ComputerMinds we're still working on how we do code review. There's always room for growth and for change, and we're actively promoting discussion amongst our team to see how we can do better.

How do you do quality assurance and review on your code? Share your thoughts and tips with us below!

Developer needed to migrate old WordPress theme to new WordPress Theme - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 01/02/2019 - 03:05
Current WordPress-based site uses Maxblog theme, with Thrive Architect as the editing plugin utility. Want to migrate to Avada (https://themeforest.net/item/avada-responsive-multipurpose-theme/2833226) theme (to be purchased by us).

The new layout will be one of the Avada templates, nothing customized. One of those chosen will be a magazine layout as this is a blog site that will ultimately use both Amazon and Adsense ads within. (Right now the site is only utilizing Amazon affiliate links.)

Site speed is a top priority in the redesign, as SEO plugins are utilized. All of the existing post content and images need to be included in the new design.

As Avada has the built-in editor (as well as WordPress's new editor), we plan to no longer use Thrive Architect. We just need to make sure to not have Thrive Architect's removal also remove content.

The site is: https://holdthegluten.com

We can supply a list of current plug-ins for you that may help with determining if there may be conflicts, or even obsolete, please do not hesitate to ask.

As a side note, we will also be migrating the entire site to a new web host after this redesign is complete. If you instead recommend moving to the new web host FIRST, please let us know. If this is also something that can be completed as a "package deal" please let us know!

Note - We selected "Pay by the Hour" however, we're open to both types of quotes.
1) Hourly rate and total estimated hours
2) Estimated project total price

Wim Leers: A dozen years of Drupal

News from Planet Drupal - Mon, 12/31/2018 - 22:13

Last week was my twelfth Drupalversary!

The first half dozen years as a volunteer contributor/student, the second half as a full-time contributor/Acquia employee. Which makes this a special Drupalversary and worth looking back on :)

2006–2012

The d.o highlights of the first six years were my Hierarchical Select and CDN modules. I started those in my first year or so of using Drupal (which coincides with my first year at university). They led to a summer job for Mollom, working with/for Dries remotely — vastly better than counting sandwiches or waiting tables!

It also resulted in me freelancing during the school holidays: the Hierarchical Select module gained many features thanks to agencies not just requesting but also sponsoring them. I couldn’t believe that companies thousands of kilometers away would trust a 21-year old to write code for them!

Then I did my bachelor thesis and master thesis on Drupal + WPO (Web Performance Optimization) + data mining. To my own amazement, my bachelor thesis (while now irrelevant) led to freelancing for the White House and an internship with Facebook.

Biggest lesson learned: opportunities are hiding in unexpected places! (But opportunities are more within reach to those who are privileged. I had the privilege to do university studies, to spend my free time contributing to an open source project, and to propose thesis subjects.)

2012–2018

The second half was made possible by all of the above and sheer luck.

When I was first looking for a job in early 2012, Acquia had a remote hiring freeze. It got lifted a few months later. Because I’d worked remotely with Dries before (at Mollom), I was given the opportunity to work fully remotely from day one. (This would turn out to be very valuable: since then I’ve moved three times!) Angie and Moshe thought I was a capable candidate, I think largely based on the Hierarchical Select module.
Imagine that the remote hiring freeze had not gotten lifted or I’d written a different module? I was lucky in past choices and timing.
So I joined Acquia and started working on Drupal core full-time! I was originally hired to work on the authoring experience, specifically in-place editing.
The team of four I joined in 2012 has quadrupled since then and has always been an amazing group of people — a reflection of the people in the Drupal community at large!

Getting Drupal 8 shipped was hard on everyone in the community, but definitely also on our team. We all did whatever was most important; I probably contributed to more than a dozen subsystems along the way. The Drupal 8 achievement I’m most proud of is probably the intersection of cacheability and the render pipeline: Dynamic Page Cache & BigPipe, both of which have accelerated many billions responses by now. After Drupal 8 shipped, my primary focus has been the API-First Initiative. It’s satisfying to see Drupal 8 do well.

Biggest lessons learned:

  1. code criticism is not personal criticism — not feeling the need to defend every piece of code you’ve written is not only liberating, it also makes you immensely more productive!
  2. always think about future maintainability — having to provide support and backwards compatibility made me truly understand the consequences of mistakes I’ve made.

To many more years with the Drupal community!

Sales Copywriter / Funnel Builder / SEO Required - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Mon, 12/31/2018 - 18:42
I am looking for an expert for some ongoing work. I currently require 3 projects completing

1. (Wordpress) As a priority, I require a website upgrade. My clients require more information on what my product is and how it benefits them before they are prepared to commit to spending any money.

I need to add some 3 month, 6 month, 12 month and lifetime payment options to my main page aswell as some detailed information on how we can help the viewer. Unfortunately, I struggle to come up with the required content (permanent writer's block?) so I think a Skype style interview would be best to help you figure out what my product is.

2. I am planning on introducing sales funnels to my affiliates and so I need a Basic and an Advanced sales funnel creating which will be offered to my users. I suspect this will be similar to the standard sales page but with some customisation towards each affiliate.

3. Currently my SEO is non-existent. This needs some TLC

My website is www.ParagonCryptoHub.com and in short, we simply provide our clients with Premium Crypto Signals, telling them which coins to buy and when to sell them for a profit, taking the huge learning curve and high risk out of becoming a professional trader. Our experts do the hard work and relay their trade suggestions to our customers.

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Make composer operations with Drupal way faster and easier on RAM

News from Planet Drupal - Mon, 12/31/2018 - 15:42

tl;dr: Run composer require zaporylie/composer-drupal-optimizations:^1.0 in your Drupal codebase to halve Composer's RAM usage and make operations like require and update 3-4x faster.

A few weeks ago, I noticed Drupal VM's PHP 5.6 automated test suite started failing on the step that runs composer require drupal/drush. (PSA: PHP 5.6 is officially dead. Don't use it anymore. If you're still using it, upgrade to a supported version ASAP!). This was the error message I was getting from Travis CI:

PHP Fatal error:  Allowed memory size of 2147483648 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32 bytes) in phar:///usr/bin/composer/src/Composer/DependencyResolver/RuleWatchNode.php on line 40

I ran the test suite locally, and didn't have the same issue (locally I have PHP's CLI memory limit set to -1 so it never runs out of RAM unless I do insane-crazy things.

AddWeb Solution: 2018 - A ‘Year’ full of Smiles, Stronger Bonds & Success!

News from Planet Drupal - Mon, 12/31/2018 - 12:03

Past is a place, thoroughly familiar and yet the experience of revisiting it varies drastically. Revisiting some leaves you with happy nostalgia, some with innocent laughter, some with a moment of pride, and some, a prick of sadness or regret. But yet we choose to visit this place called ‘past’ through our memory, time and again. In fact, we recently did so by revisiting the year 2018, like many others, that is about to end in just a handful of hours. And fortunately, it was filled with a host of happy moments to rejoice and relish, topped by several breakthrough changes and chances we’ve embraced with all love & warmth.


The year 2018 has been the most eventful year for the AddWeb-traveling, counting right from the moment of moving into altogether new office space to officially being a supporting partner of Drupal.org and everything in between. It’s a journey no less than a cinematic experience, with all the drama, emotions and heroic ending - full of catharsis. Let us take you through this marvelous journey, as experienced by AddWeb-ians.

 

Welcoming 2018 - The Journey Begins, Quite Literally!

, ,

The hobby of traveling might be a trending one today. But we refrain from polluting our passion for traveling, by putting it under the category of ‘trending’. We’re so much about traveling that it has become just a part of our existence, now. Apart from all the traveling we individually do, throughout the year, we also make sure to plan at least one with our AddWeb family. And this time, we literally began our journey of 2018 by going on a trip to Jaisalmer - amidst sand dunes and folk tunes, starry nights and tipsy sites; quite literally!  

 

AddWeb Family Celebrate Emotions!

, ,

We promised you a journey with emotions at the backdrop. So, here we share a set of different emotions we shared and celebrated across the year.

  • Celebrating the born-day of our dear AddWebians with cakes, candles, and compassion

  • Celebrating the unity in diversity of the Republic of India with the strength of tri-color dress code and decorations

  • Celebrating the diverseness of our being with colors during the festival of Holi

  • Celebrating the feminine force on Women’s day by showing them the feeling of gratitude with ‘sweet’ presents

  • Celebrating the feeling of freedom on Independence day by painting our mood with patriotism

  • Celebrating the oneness of AddWeb family with an electrifying and energetic party - The AddWeb Annual Event at Olives Restaurant

  • Celebrating the almighty of auspiciousness - the cherubic Ganesha with an immense amount of faith and festive decorations on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi

  • Celebrating the festive mood of Diwali with DIY decorations, dazzling traditional dresses, delicious Diwali lunch, and gifts!

  • Celebrating the Christian festival of Christmas with a dress code, gifts, and our own two self-proclaimed Santas!

Level up, Metaphorically & Literally!

, ,

Well, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration if we said we literally levelled-up this year. Because this very year we moved into a new & bigger office space that is a few floors up from the old one. And we guess, this clearly states that we grew bigger in terms of our employee strength too, or as we like to address it - our AddWeb family grew even bigger! Yes, we started off from 50+ in January 2018 and today, by the end of December 2018, we’re almost a family of 100.

 

Apart from the above two, there are a few other spheres too, where we levelled-up. Like we launched a brand new website of ours, a couple of months before shifting into a brand new office space. Also, since we’re already following the international method of working, we also adopted the international standards of work hours by bringing the ‘5-days working’ policy into account. We also initiated sponsoring quarterly team lunches for our AddWeb family, who after travel bonds the most over food!  

 

Giving Back to the Society

, ,

The universe thrives and survives on the rule of ‘give & take’ and we firmly understand the importance of the same. Hence, we do believe in giving back to the society that has given us so much to relish upon. Maybe, that is why apart from doing things for the lesser privileged on a personal ground, we also choose to do a small act of charity on an official ground. We deliberately choose to publically share it, in order to inspire others to do the same.


This year too, we gave back to society by visiting a nearby government school. We spent some really good times with the happy and giving souls there and donated some stationary products, cookies, crayons, textbooks, et all for those kids. Believe us, it was one of the most wonderful time we had throughout the entire year. Something, that’s going to stay with us for a long, long time!

 

The AddWeb-Drupal Association, Elevated!

, ,

Our association with Drupal is as old as our existence. In fact, we as individual team members have been Drupal-ing even before the inception of AddWeb. And this year, we took a step ahead by giving the monetary contribution to the ‘Promote Drupal Initiative’ by Drupal.org. How could we not contribute, when it was about strengthening the community to a higher level.


And our support & passion for Drupal doesn’t end there. We also became the official ‘Supporting Partner’ of Drupal, which ultimately helped us in extending and strengthening our association with Drupal. We also made another contribution towards Drupal by organizing a ‘Drupal Meetup’ in our city and had multiple interesting knowledge-sharing sessions with the local community members.

And of course, how could we not attend the international Drupal events, worldwide! This year we attended the Standford Drupal Camp, DrupalCon Nashville, and Drupal Europe event that was voluntarily organised by the Drupal community members. We also attended our first ever Laravel event in Europe by the name of LaraCon EU.

 

AEDU Hits the Market, Successfully!

, ,

The joy of launching your very own dream-project is no less than winning an Oscar. Indeed! The year 2018 gave us one such moment when we launched our very own school management software - AEDU in the market. And to our surprise, it got adopted by more than 200+ schools across the nation with all love and warmth. Not just that, we also launched the Parent and Driver’s App, for the same and they also got an equal and elaborative response as the software did!

 

Community, Coding, Contributions & Client-Satisfaction

, ,

Last but not least! Our core passion for coding paved a path full of new endeavors and wealthy projects. Let us share these moments of pride and high spirits, from this year, with you before we all enter into a new year with goals to achieve and moments to live!

  • On one hand, when we introduced our very own Research Wing for Artificial Intelligence(AI); on the other hand, we also spent 1000+ hours on contributing towards the open-source community

  • We adapted the Intranet & Instant Communication Tool by the name of ‘Rocket.chat’, along with developing & launching our very own ‘AddWeb Ionic Chat

  • Witnessing the boom of ReactJS and ASP.Net, we also adopted them, for we love learning and excelling at new technologies

  • We automated the DevOps process that we follow with the use of Jenkins and Ansible, resulting in being more productive and futuristic!

  • And the most momentous achievement of the year - We successfully completed 100+ projects, worldwide along with one of the biggest project of the year, named ‘AnyQuip

 

With a wish that we haven’t bored with our smiles, stronger bonds and success, we again wish each one of you reading this a #HappyNewYear and blissful moments, manifold!
