This year's Twin Cities Drupal Camp was as good as ever, with a great venue (Thanks University of St Thomas!) quality session content (thanks speakers!) enjoyable parties (thanks organizers!) and attendees who are, of course, Minnesota nice.
Here you'll find posts about both the software and the Backdrop community.
In February, we added support for Backdrop CMS to DDEV-Local. In this post, I’ll show you how to use DDEV-Local to easily create local, PHP based development environments. Ultimately, this allows you to leverage the power of Docker while being much easier to use.
After another 4 months of new feature development, we're pleased to announce the release of Backdrop 1.10! This version of Backdrop adds lots of exciting new functionality to Backdrop CMS, including:
Content can now be scheduled as it's being created, and will be automatically published in the future.
Joseph and I went to Drupal Camp Utah on May 4th, 2018 (Star Wars Day). This was our 3rd camp at Utah, but it’s been a while since our last one, so there were a lot of unfamiliar faces, but that’s never bothered us before.
There is hope for the human race after all (or "Drupal, Backdrop, and the awesomeness of Open Source")
I don’t have as much time as I’d like anymore to contribute to the open source community, but when the entire Drupal community came together to address a highly critical security issue just before Easter, I got to witness a global-scale, multicultural, coordinated reaction, that made me regain hope for the human race. It even motivated me enough to write the third blog of my entire life...
Backdrop is pleased to announce the first of three annual releases for 2018 that includes some brand-new features and a long list of fixes!
One of the new features that stands out in the 1.9.0 release is the ability to manage individual files. You can now replace a file, and all pages where that file is referenced will be automatically updated.
Wouldn't it be great to work on tangible projects and help non-profit organizations further their cause with Backdrop websites? We often work in a theoretical or abstracted space when working on Backdrop core and contrib software. I was delighted by the idea of working with the Backdrop community on concrete real websites for a cause.
