My thoughts on Adobe buying Magento for $1.68 billion

Yesterday, Adobe announced that it agreed to buy Magento for $1.68 billion. When I woke up this morning, 14 different people had texted me asking for my thoughts on the acquisition. Adobe acquiring Magento isn’t a surprise. One of our industry’s worst-kept secrets is that Adobe first tried to buy Hybris, but lost the deal to SAP; subsequently Adobe tried to buy DemandWare and lost out against Salesforce. It’s evident that Adobe has been hungry to acquire a commerce platform for quite some time. The product motivation behind the acquisition Large platform companies like Salesforce, Oracle, SAP and Adobe are trying to own the digital customer experience market from top to bottom, which includes providing support for marketing, commerce, personalization, and data management, in addition to content and experience management and more. Compared to the other platform companies, Adobe was missing commerce. With Magento under its belt, Adobe can better…

Learning Gutenberg: Series Introduction

Hey CSS-Tricksters! 👋 We have a special long-form series we’re kicking off here totally dedicated to Gutenberg, a major change to the WordPress editor. I’ve invited a dynamic duo of authors to bring you this series, which will bring you up to speed on what Gutenberg is, what it can do for your site, and how you can actually develop for it. Who this is for This series is more for developers who are curious about this new world and wanna get started working with it. This series isn’t necessarily for site owners who want to know how it’s going to affect their site or who are worried about it for any reason. It’s clear there is a lot of possibility with Gutenberg. Yes, it’s aiming to be a better editing experience, but it also likely to change how people think of what’s possible with WordPress. With the custom “blocks”…

Working toward a JavaScript-driven Drupal administration interface

As web applications have evolved from static pages to application-like experiences, end-users’ expectations of websites have become increasingly demanding. JavaScript, partnered with effective user-experience design, enable the seamless, instantaneous interactions that users now expect. The Drupal project anticipated this trend years ago and we have been investing heavily in making Drupal API-first ever since. As a result, more organizations are building decoupled applications served by Drupal. This approach allows organizations to use modern JavaScript frameworks, while still benefiting from Drupal’s powerful content management capabilities, such as content modeling, content editing, content workflows, access rights and more. While organizations use JavaScript frameworks to create visitor-facing experiences with Drupal as a backend, Drupal’s own administration interface has not yet embraced a modern JavaScript framework. There is high demand for Drupal to provide a cutting-edge experience for its own users: the site’s content creators and administrators. At DrupalCon Vienna, we decided to start…

Experience Express in Nashville: Decoupled in the Spotlight at DrupalCon

As the weather heated up last week in Nashville and the city’s eponymous hot chicken incinerated tongues left and right, something else was burning in the spotlight at DrupalCon Nashville: decoupled Drupal. The Music City Center played host to the Drupal community and a coterie of developers, technologists, businesspeople, and community builders passionate about our flinty open-source content management system. For me, the most significant outcome of the conference, which I’ve attended for almost a decade now, was the excitement — and lingering bewilderment — surrounding decoupled Drupal. Every session room concerning decoupled Drupal was standing room only, and the interest was palpable. That meant it was a great time to announce the second edition of Decoupled Drupal Days, the premier conference on decoupled Drupal, to be held again in New York City between August 17–19, 2018. This year, DrupalCon Nashville was also the venue for the inaugural Decoupled Summit,…

CX: Create the Experience. Deliver the Results.

There’s no doubt that the digital landscape looks very different these days. When we talk about an organization’s digital presence we are talking about a whole lot more than websites or content management systems.   At Drupalcon Nashville, we got down to business with our Drupal community, partners and clients to discuss where Drupal fits into this new digital ecosystem, customer experience trends, Drupal 8 best practices, and how to maintain a competitive digital experience platform in this fast-moving, ever-changing market.

What Are Viget Developers Building Right Now?

I sat down with our Development Director, David, last week to talk about Viget’s Development team, what they are working on, and how we should grow over the next 6 months. I left the conversation inspired. The purpose of this article is to provide a snapshot of what the Viget Dev team is currently working on. Hopefully, you’ll find this list as inspiring as I did — there is a huge range of scope, duration, team size, technology, and client type. If you think you’d enjoy contributing to these types of projects, I hope you’ll consider applying to work with us or at least introducing yourself so we can keep in touch long-term. Here’s a quick rundown of the dev work we’ve done this quarter (January – March, 2018). We just started a quick, two-week project to build a small app with a React front-end and Rails back-end. It’s a fast paced,…

Decoupling Drupal 8 Core: Web Services in Core and the Serialization Module

If you have decided to decouple Drupal, after conducting due diligence with regard to assessing the risks and rewards of decoupling Drupal and understanding how best to decouple Drupal in 2018, it is essential to understand how web services in Drupal 8 core and their dependencies undergird all decoupled Drupal architectures, regardless of the application you are implementing. In this Experience Express column, we’ll explore the process of decoupling Drupal through the lens of core modules in Drupal 8. In Drupal 8 core, four key modules, when enabled, collectively facilitate the provisioning of RESTful APIs out of the box: HAL, Serialization, REST, and Basic Authentication. Some of these modules provide foundations that underpin important contributed modules also useful for Drupal such as JSON API, RELAXed Web Services, and GraphQL. For instance, while the JSON API contributed module depends on Serialization, it does not depend on REST. After examining these modules,…

Building a Serverless CMS Powered by Vue.js

Vue.js, a progressive framework for building user interfaces, is gaining in popularity among developers. But why yet another JavaScript framework? Vue has learned from the experiences of Angular and React and many see it as simpler to implement and understand. Vue.js is lightweight and easily adoptable. It’s reactive and component-based, allowing you to create pluggable components you can add to any project. Most importantly for this tutorial, Vue and its hallmark incremental adoptability allows you to try Vue without putting your existing code base at risk. Vue works well with serverless application architectures. Serverless architectures are becoming the preferred architecture for many developers because it allows them to create and fine-tune products efficiently without having to bear the burdens (server maintenance, outages, and scaling bottlenecks) of traditional server-based architecture. Sarah Drasner recently wrote an entire series on how to create a serverless checkout flow powered by Vue and is a…

The Web Is Changing: Introducing Experience Express

At no point in the history of digital content has there ever been such a dizzying proliferation of devices in our lives, and experiences we encounter and consume. Long the most critical element of an organization’s digital presence, the website is increasingly treated as just a single facet in a kaleidoscope of content channels and form factors. Many of today’s users, in the course of acquiring content or data, never touch a desktop web browser at all. How do we address this channel explosion and the issues that ensue as it continues? If the architectural shift we are witnessing — from monoliths to microservices — is truly as monumental as it sounds, is Drupal ready? More importantly, how can you use Drupal to ensure that your digital experiences are prepared for the omnichannel future? And what’s happening on the ground and in the minds of developers, marketers, and business decision-makers?…
