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.


Defining Drupal's values and principles

Since its founding, Drupal has grown a great deal, and today there are thousands of contributors and organizations that make up our community. Over the course of seventeen years, we have spent a great amount of time and effort scaling our community. As a result, Drupal has evolved into one of the largest open source projects in the world. Today, the Drupal project serves as a role model to many other open source projects; from our governance and funding models, to how we work together globally with thousands of contributors, to our 3,000+ person conferences. However, the work required to scale our community is a continuous process. Prompted by feedback from the Drupal community, scaling Drupal will be a key focus for me throughout 2018. I have heard a lot of great ideas about how we can scale our community, in addition to improving how we all work together. Today,…

Drupal hooks vs Drupal events

Jonathan Daggerhart wrote a fantastic tutorial on Drupal 8’s events system. I especially liked the comparison to Drupal’s traditional hook system. When reading Jonathan’s tutorial, I couldn’t help but think how useful it would be to integrate it into Drupal’s official documentation. Source: Dries Buytaert www.buytaert.net

United by Contribution — Two Takes on Open Source

A couple of Drupalists meet WordCamp London 2017 – WordCamp London 2017 was my very first WordPress community event; my first time up close with a community rumoured to have a very different focus and feeling than the Drupal community I know and love. But contribution, the one theme unifying us across all open source software communities, brought us all together. Chris Jansen and I had the privilege being invited to speak about open source contribution at WordCamp London 2017. We also had the good fortune to be supported by our respective employers to be there; thank you Deeson Agency and Acquia! Thank you, WordCamp London! Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! It was great to meet you. We were welcomed with open arms and yes, it was a very different kind of event for us. The event The WordPress community doesn’t have big DrupalCon-style events, but it does hold…

Drupal 8 Module (Distro!) of the Week: Panopoly

This week: The Drupal 8 Panopoly distribution // 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 chatted with the maintainer of the Panopoly distro and co-founder of myDropWizard.com, David Snopek (dsnopek). He calls himself “a Drupal developer, consultant, and entrepreneur.” He contributes a lot to Drupal and its community: as a member of the Drupal Security Team, maintaining or co-maintaining “20-ish” projects on Drupal.org, and co-organizing Drupal414, the local Drupal meetup in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “Panopoly is a success story of the open source contribution long tail: lots of people giving…

Our Top Drupal Events in Austin, New York and Los Angeles

1. Austin | SXSW  Hipsters and nerds of all kinds from all over, come together for one week in Austin to geek out over music, film, and technology at SXSW. Austin Drupal developers are a strange mix of the two: a city hipster and a cyber world dweeb. Party, drink, and grub down with this strange breed of developers at Tech Lover’s Karaoke Night or Drupal Drop-In. Austin’s thriving technology community knows to show fellow nerds a good time at Drupal developer events and on 6th Street.   2.
