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?
In this session, we will go over a couple of the gadgets necessary for working in the Drupal issue queue when being a novice to the queue.
There will also be a lightning round demonstrating the process of creating an issue, writing a patch, uploading the fix to Drupal.org, and then reviewing the patch for RTBC.
Tools of the trade:
Backdrop CMS is the Drupal fork. It is a faster and less-complex version of Drupal 7 with many of the top 50 Drupal 7 modules included in core. Backdrop also includes proper configuration management for quick and easy deployment of settings changes along with code.
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. Not only that, but I feel like I have ultimate control over the markup, including wrapping elements and rendering exactly the output I need.

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. This site consolidated multiple Sharepoint sites and centralized the management of marketing content and hardware specifications to ultimately handle a catalog of over 1200 SKUs across 11 different product lines.
Constructing the new site using Drupal 8 faced a number of challenges during this project:
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. These kind of rich search results give users instant access to the most actionable and shareable content on your website, creating a great user experience before they even get to your site. What kind of dark arts are site owners using to create this kind of detailed, rich information that search engines gobble up and use to create meaningful, easy to digest search results for their audiences?
