Talking through the growing pains of using Drupal with Composer dependency management at DrupalCon Baltimore. Drupal gets better when companies, organizations, and individuals build or fix something they need and then share it with the rest of us. Open source technologies become better, stronger, and smarter when others take it upon themselves to make a positive difference contributing their knowledge, time, and energy to it. Acquia is proud to play a part, alongside thousands of others, in making tomorrow’s Drupal better than today’s. One of the people making a difference is Jeff Geerling. Jeff Geerling (geerlingguy), Senior Technical Architect at Acquia, is a prolific and valued open source contributor. He has 150+ open source projects around both the Ansible and Drupal projects. His Drupal modules are used by almost 100,000 sites. I spoke with him about the BoF session he set up at DrupalCon Baltimore, Managing Drupal Sites with Composer.…

In the last few weeks, there’s been some controversy in the Drupal community. Acquia launched a major partnership with Magento, which has left some people wondering about the support for Drupal Commerce. There had already been some nervousness, because Drupal Commerce 2 has been slow to arrive in Drupal 8.
So, what’s happening with Drupal Commerce?
First, I would recommend you read Dries’ post on Acquia’s plans for e-commerce.
Next, I’d highly recommend that you watch this video from Ryan Szarma, one of the lead developers of Drupal Commerce. This video was recorded at Drupal 8 Day. Ryan covers the history, architecture, and features of Drupal Commerce 2 on Drupal 8. There was a lot of interest in Ryan’s presentation, with over 30 minutes of questions afterwards.

Last week Acquia announced a partnership with Magento. I wanted to use this opportunity to explain why I am excited about this. I also want to take a step back and share what I see is a big opportunity for both Drupal, Acquia and commerce platforms. State of the commerce market First, it is important to understand what is one of the most important market trends in online commerce: consumers are demanding better experiences when they shop online. In particular, commerce teams are looking to leverage vastly greater levels of content throughout the customer’s shopping journey – editorials, lookbooks, tutorials, product demonstration videos, mood videos, testimonials, etc. At the same time, commerce platforms have not added many tools for rich content management. Instead they have been investing in capabilities needed to compete in the commerce market; order management systems (OMS), omnichannel shopping (point of sale, mobile, desktop, kiosk, etc), improved…

Last week, we launched a new version of Acquia Lift, our personalization tool. Acquia Lift learns about your visitors’ interests, preferences and context and uses that information to personalize and contextualize their experience. After more than a year of hard work, Acquia Lift has many new and powerful capabilities. In this post, I want to highlight some of the biggest improvements. Intuitive user experience To begin, Acquia Lift’s new user interface is based on the outside-in principle. In the case of Acquia Lift, this means that the user interface primarily takes the form of a sidebar that can slide out from the edge of the page when needed. From there, users can drag and drop content into the page and get an instant preview of how the content would look. From the sidebar, you can also switch between different user segments to preview the site for different users. Personalization rules…
