Higher Ed Summit
The Higher Education Summit is a unique opportunity for site owners, IT managers, developers, content creators, and agencies dedicated to supporting and advancing the use of Drupal in academia to share, learn, and strengthen our community of practice. Through panels, talks, and ample breakout sessions, participants share and learn from one another’s victories and challenges, and build momentum in cross-institutional initiatives. This year's theme is using Drupal as a collaboration tool (intranets, research sites, data sharing, administrative tasks, portals, etc.).
Please fill out this survey and join us at the higher education summit.

Object oriented structures have replaced our all too familiar hooks which enabled us to extend Drupal with new functionality without hacking core (or other contrib modules). But how does this all work?
The first challenge of any Front-end Developer is knowing when to stop theming a page and to start building a design system. It is too easy to focus on the homepage, landing page or detail page of a site without ever thinking how the components on a page may be used. This often leads
Debugging in the browser is something every Front End Developer should know, I wish I knew this before... but if you want to save time and learn more about how JS runs in your browser this session is for you.
Most Drupallers dream of being a contributor to the Drupal project. But where do you begin? And more importantly, what are some of the tools to help navigate the adventure successfully?
Project success may be measured in KPIs, but hitting your numbers relies on understanding the people behind them.
This interactive presentation, by members of the global Drupal Security Team, will outline a range of common vulnerabilities in Drupal websites. You will watch Security Team members try to hack these sites and share their thought process as they go.

In Drupal 7, we front end developers could hack away a most themes and modules to get the output we needed with dpm and a little hutspa. Drupal 8's sophisticated code base means we need a few more tools to get and modify our data beyond what Twig provides.
#distributed, #drupal, #design
Topic: How to design and develop big, bold, and beautiful Drupal sites with a distributed team.
New to Twig? It's a robust and elegant template engine for PHP. Once I started working with Twig, I instantly took to it and here's why: it's lightweight, fairly quick to pick up, and very readable.
The open source tech community - and the Drupal community in particular - is a different sort of workplace. Compared to large, high-budget corporations, I see more diversity, less infatuation with pedigrees, and a lot more self-teaching and self-driven careers.
In 1868, Japan announced that it would open its doors to the world, and begin a new era of innovation and exchanging information with the world. It wasn’t just for the experience of learning, it was for the survival of the country’s traditions and culture.
Browser based developer tools have become an indispensable tool for modern front-end web development. New features and changes are being added at a rapid pace, and keeping up with all of the changes is difficult, but well worth it!

The Drupal 8 configuration system can provide great advantages to managing the configuration of a site, but it can also cause massive headaches if used improperly.
In Drupal 8, we have a very flexible theming system that allows you to override the front-end output of your site.
Let’s go over the jargon and basic set up of git in a safe space. Git is a magical gift from Linus Torvalds, but it is also a monster that needs its occasional blood sacrifice.
Testing has become an integral part of Drupal development but often it's often only focused on technical aspects and implemented at the end of the project lifecycle.
Advanced Micro Devices is a global semiconductor company located in the United States, with facilities around the world, and over $4 billion in revenue in 2016. In early 2017, in tandem with the launch of a new line of processors, AMD launched a new web site built on Drupal 8.
Drupal 8 has changed a lot and the process for creating, building, testing and deploying a site is not the exception.
Amazee Labs prides itself on delivering projects our clients love. Our scrum teams turn out projects like a well-oiled machine, working in tandem with a client-side PO in an agile way to gather specifications, build, test, and deploy. Rinse, repeat.

Ask just about any software engineer whether they think automated tests make a project easier and more enjoyable to work on, and you are likely to get an resoundingly positive reply.
This session is targeted to people who have experience as Drupal site-builders who are looking to get started with module development.
The ideas of Atomic Design and component based design allow one to create an established structure within which a large scale front end project can be built. The CMS space hasn’t always been the most friendly toward implementing these types of patterns.
DDoS attacks make headlines everyday, but how do they work and how can you defend against them? DDoS attacks can be high volume UDP traffic floods, SYN floods, DNS amplification, or Layer 7 HTTP attacks.
We’ve all seen Google results that feature detailed contact and location information, recipe details and reviews, browsable discographies and more when we’re looking for information.
Drupal contrib has long attempted to provide page layout tools to augment what Drupal core's block placement utilities can do. Over the many years and many version of Drupal core tools like:
How the DKAN Open Data Platform Empowers Scientists
We wear a lot of hats as front-end developers. Depending on the client or company you work for, you may be the designer, UX/UI specialist, site-builder, QA tester, and developer all rolled into one. How can we possibly add the accessibility hat on top of all that?
The proliferation of testing strategies outside of a broadly agreed set of definitions has caused confusion and a waste of effort by not fully understanding how to apply the fundamentals of unit testing. Let's change that.

Everyone is talking about Big Data. Your clients (or bosses) are starting to ask about it. What do you tell them?
Each line of code you change increases the probability of your application breaking. It follows that as your deployment amasses more changes, the probability that your app will break increases too. Continuous Delivery is a software development practice that aims to make shipping software safer
Configuration management has been a hot topic since it was first announced as an initiative. Unfortunately, our dream of being able to save configuration directly to files didn't materialize, and the community has created many complex workflows to work around the problem of storing configuration
