rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Turn Anxiety into Excitement

These three words could fundamentally change your life: I am excited. Some new research shows that this could really, really help you and your anxiety when it comes to new things (or things that really scare you like public speaking): The participants were then told to either say “I am anxious,” “I am excited,” or nothing before they broke into song. The “excited” participants not only felt more excited, and they also sang better, according to a computerized measurement of volume and pitch. Their on-and-on-and-ons were just more, well, on—perhaps because the participants themselves were. Here’s a 3-minute video that breaks it down as well: Very cool. I’ve been trying this on myself as well as sharing this with my kids as well. It’s another experiment that we’re doing like our “Daily Failures” in the evening. The post Turn Anxiety into Excitement appeared first on John Saddington. Drupal Developer

Anexus: How to use ES6 in Drupal 8

How to use ES6 in Drupal 8 I bet many of you doesn’t understand what is ES6, being honest I didn’t know this term until a few days ago.  ES6 stands for ECMAScript v6 or ES2015, but in simple words, is just Javascript; Correct Javascript as simple as that. So, ES6 one of the latest version of Javascript specification, but is not supported by all browsers, because was released in June 2015, even worst in June 2016 we got ES7 and as you can imagine not supported yet. Right now all browsers support ES5, then, if it’s not compatible with all browsers, why ES6+ is a big thing? Because, now Javascript is more OOP, using classes, constants, and modules, enabling to create more complex and organized projects. So, how we could use ES6 in our web projects like Drupal, to avoid to have a particular version of our site based on our…

Liip: Drupalaton 2016

Last week Drupalaton 2016 took place. With about 150 registrations this was the largest Drupalaton so far. The organizers did an amazing job in coping with this mass. There were two session threads and a sprint room. Of the many interesting presentations I would like to mention Fabian Bircher’s “Configuration Management: theory and practice” (a must for everyone who gets lost while trying to work in a team on a Drupal8 project) , Pieter Frenssen’s “Working with REST APIs”  (it was good to see how simple it is in Drupal8) and “Drupal 8 Media” from Pónya Péter, Szanyi Tamás and Rubén Teijeiro (seems we have a huge step forward in media handling since Drupal7!). I held a session on caching in Drupal 8 which was the shortened version the one I did on Drupal Developer Days in Milan. Liip was a silver sponsor of the event. Finally, some pictures on…

OSTraining: Would You Be Interested in an Online Drupal 8 Day?

Drupal 8 has been out since November and is now maturing into a really powerful platform. We’d like to hold an online event all about Drupal 8.  The event will be called “Drupal 8 Day” and will be an online version of a Drupal Camp. It will be one complete day of live presentations. To get a good feel for this type of event, check out Wordsesh.org in the WordPress space. The goal is to present Drupal 8 in the best possible light, especially to people who normally can’t attend a Drupal Camp. We talk with a lot of people who just don’t live near any kind of DrupalCamp. Some typical examples are people outside the big Canadian cities, people living in Eastern Europe but outside capital cities, and people in sub-Saharan Africa. Drupal Developer

frobiovox.com: Basic Hello World with composer and php

Getting started with composer I want this to be an introduction to using Composer. If you are looking for more information about using Drupal with Composer then you should checkout the official composer facade doc page on drupal.org. I will not be talking about publishing to Packagist. My php is nearly always for Drupal, and as such, if I publish anything it will most likely be to a project on… Drupal Developer

Arpit Jalan: GSOC 2016- Making Label Detection results configurable and improving documentation- Week 12

TL;DR Last week I had worked moving the helper functions for filling Alt Text of image file to a new service; and moving the reused/supporting functions of the tests to an abstract parent class, GoogleVisionTestBase. This week I have worked on improving the documentation of the module and making the label detection results configurable.With all major issues and features committed to the module, this week I worked on few minor issues, including the documentation and cleanup in the project..It is an immense pleasure for me that I am getting the feedbacks from the community on the Google Vision API module. An issue Improve documentation for helper functions was created to develop more on documentation and provide the minute details on the code. I have worked on it, and added more documentation to the helper functions so that they can be understood better. In addition, a need was felt to let…

Acquia Developer Center Blog: Making Drupal User File Uploads Safe(r)

Do you let users upload files to your Drupal site? You know that “user” is a synonym for attacker, right?. To keep your Drupal site secure you need to remember and account for the fact that any string or file upload that comes from a user can be an attack. Even if you don’t let users register without administrator approval, a site user may have re-used their password or otherwise have their account compromised and then used to attack the site.Tags: acquia drupal planet Drupal Developer

Jay L.ee: How To Make The Web Widgets Module Work With Drupal 7.50

For users of the awesome Web Widgets module, you’ll notice that it’ll no longer work after installing Drupal 7.50. But after digging into this issue, I realized that the problem was much simpler than I had originally imagined (Drupal 7.50 supporting PHP 7). Sometimes all it takes is to just RTFM lol. Anyway, here’s how to solve it: 1) Understand what the source of the issue is. The cause of the problem was “Protection against clickjacking enabled by default”.Tags: Drupal 7Drupal Planet Drupal Developer

ComputerMinds.co.uk: Dependency Injection – how to access services in controllers

If you are trying to get to grips with Dependency Injection in Drupal 8 then here is a walk-through of how I applied it in one of my Drupal 8 test projects. I have a project I have been using to investigate Drupal 8 since alpha10 which has been invaluable in my learning process. But as a result, some of my code is over 2 years old and written when I barely had a grasp of Drupal 8 concepts. In the past week a very old @todo jumped out to me: Drupal Developer

Dries Buytaert: Drupal goes to Rio

As the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro enters its second and final week, it’s worth noting that the last time I blogged about Drupal and the Olympics was way back in 2008 when I called attention to the fact that Nike was running its sponsorship site on Drupal 6 and using Drupal’s multilingual capabilities to deliver their message in 13 languages. While watching some track and field events on television, I also spent a lot of time on my laptop with the NBC Olympics website. It is a site that has run on Drupal for several years, and this year I noticed they took it up a notch and did a redesign to enhance the overall visitor experience. Last week NBC issued a news release that it has streamed over one billion minutes of sports via their site so far. That’s a massive number! I take pride in…
