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.

Reservoir, a simple way to decouple Drupal

Decoupled Drupal seems to be taking the world by storm. I’m currently in Sydney, and everyone I talked to so far, including the attendees at the Sydney Drupal User Group, is looking into decoupled Drupal. Digital agencies are experimenting with it on more projects, and there is even a new Decoupled Dev Days conference dedicated to the topic. Roughly eight months ago, we asked ourselves in Acquia’s Office of the CTO whether we could create a “headless” version of Drupal, optimized for integration with a variety of applications, channels and touchpoints. Such a version could help us build bridges with other developer communities working with different frameworks and programming languages, and the JavaScript community in particular. I’ve been too busy with the transition at Acquia to blog about it in real time, but a few months ago, we released Reservoir. It’s a Drupal-based content repository with all the necessary web…

Introducing Reservoir, a Distribution for Decoupling Drupal

Decoupling Drupal can be arduous, whether you’re developing a Drupal-backed front end or configuring Drupal to be an ideal content repository for decoupled applications. Adding to the challenge is the fact that there is a lack of definitive starting points, boilerplates, and best practices. But the issue isn’t simply that there are so many competing approaches; it’s also that there doesn’t yet exist an easy starting point for non-Drupal developers who solely want to configure Drupal to be the back end for their front-end applications and get on with development. Acquia’s Office of the CTO is pleased to announce the release of Reservoir, an experimental Drupal distribution developed by Wim Leers (coordinator of Drupal’s API-first initiative) and Ted Bowman. Beyond comprising an exceptional starting point for any decoupled Drupal implementation, it is also designed to on-board developers of all backgrounds: a decoupled Drupal distribution and optimal back end for every…

10 Ways to Build Quality into Agile Drupal Development

Many newcomers to agile software development methods are impressed, if not terrified, at the frequency of changes made to an emerging product’s requirements and codebase. Digital leaders understand that agile processes can improve adaptability and time-to-market. But, with so many changes happening so fast, how can a team possibly maintain high quality? In this blog post, I’ll describe 10 practices used in the Acquia Professional Services Delivery Methodology to overcome this challenge. 1) Clarify business goals and metrics up front. Yes, agile does require planning. Before design or development begins, the client and Acquia team must identify the business drivers and goals for the project. The team should also agree upon metrics that will be used to evaluate these business goals. All further quality assurance and control efforts should directly relate back to these goals and metrics. Without this foundation, “quality” is meaningless jargon. 2) Draft the Drupal content model…

Entity Reference Views is Now in the Drupal 8 Core

Entity Reference Views are a great way to make life easier for Drupal content creators. Normally, when people create content on your site, each field is very plain. However, Entity Reference Views allows you to provide far more information. For example, instead of just showing a list of users, your content creators can browse through a list of names, photos and personal details. Both Views and Entity Reference are now part of the Drupal 8 core. This made using Entity Reference Views in Drupal 8 extremely easy. If you’re a Drupal 7 user, read this version of the tutorial.

Decoupled or Headless or API-First Drupal

Not even three months into 2017, and already two industry articles have appeared that claim that this is “the Year of Decoupled.” If so, this is propitious development for Drupal, and the Acquia Developer Center. Because we’ve been publishing “decoupled”-related (AKA “headless,” AKA “API-First”) thinking for a while now. Wouldn’t it make sense to start organizing it into one stream? That’s what we thought. So here’s our first installment of a blog series that will point to some of the best thinking on decoupled in general, and decoupled Drupal in particular. We’re starting with a short blog series by Preston So, Development Manager, Acquia Labs: Decoupled Drupal and Ember. Although Preston mentions at the outset that there are trade-offs that come with decoupling, he addresses these two posts to developers who have determined that decoupling Drupal entirely is the appropriate course of action for their needs. In this case, Preston…

Ektron to Drupal Conversion: Content Migration

In January of 2015, Accel-KKR, a private equity firm, combined Ektron and the Swedish company Episerver into a single company and CMS platform. This has caused many organizations to choose to migrate off the Ektron platform and onto a CMS like Drupal. Two factors are driving this trend: the high cost of an Episerver license upgrade, and the fact that the open source landscape has evolved significantly over the prior decade, to the point where many enterprise organizations (from private and public corporations to government entities) have embraced Drupal and the open source community. When making this kind of migration, there are several factors to keep in mind which require proper planning and careful consideration. An upcoming Acquia Tech Talk, 3 Tips for a Successful Ektron to Drupal Conversion, will give you a good idea what you need to know to pull off an Ektron-to-Drupal migration, and it’s coming right…

Drupal 8 Module of the Week: Brightcove Video Connect

This week: Brightcove Video Connect Module // Drupal 8 has more and more features available practically every day. Alongside module migrations and new projects, the Drupal community’s latest major release also offers new ways of solving common problems. Some functionality has moved to Drupal core and new modules have taken up the torch along the way. In this series, the Acquia Developer Center is profiling useful solutions–modules, themes, distros, and more–available for Drupal 8. I spoke with several people from Pronovix, the company that rebuilt the Brightcove module for Drupal 8 and discovered a small but interesting Drupal contribution story, too. “The module itself is really important; several of the biggest media sites run on Drupal. And Brightcove is, to our knowledge, the only video hosting platform that has taken ownership of their own Drupal integration. They supported the upgrade to Drupal 8 and the module’s maintenance directly because they…
