Follow along with my new series on Drupal 8 Development:
http://codementality.com/blog/drupal-8-development-deconstructed
On November 19, 2015, the first officially supported version of Drupal 8 was released! Shortly after that point, there was a plethora of posts on writing Drupal 8 modules, most of them the infamous "Hello, World!" applications. Being a Drupal developer for several years, I eagerly scoured the ...

Do they give a "buzzword" seminar somewhere for web development shops who want to sound competent?  If they do, I missed that somehow.  It's ironic when you have a conversation with an aspiring web development shop partner, and they use the term "best practices" and "scrum" in the same sentence as "weekly meeting" and "automated testing is not in our project budget".

Scrum != weekly meeting
Best Practice != Automated testing is not in our project budget

If you want to convince me that you are interested in Best Practices, how about trying some?  C'mon -- walk the talk.

Presenting at DrupalCamp Chattanooga today.....

Continuous Integration is the "best" practice of merging developer works-in-progress into a single project several times a day, building a test site out of the merged codebase, testing the site, publishing the results of the tests, and ultimately deploying a site. Automatically.

In this session, we'll cover how you can set up and use a Jenkins CI server to automate your integration and development testing process using the "Jenkins Job Template for Drupal Projects", a template developed and made available publicly by Reload!, a Drupal development agency located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

We'll cover configuring your project template, setting up your Drupal project, configuring your build properties and finally, running a successful build, with test results.

So, this is day two of the new job at Promet Source.  I have to say I am impressed with the diversity of the workforce here at Promet -- it's very refreshing to see a number of women in project management, client relationship management, development and sales, and the roles that they play here :).

Go Team!

Set up a Jenkins server this past week, and configured a couple of projects for automated testing using the Jenkins job template for Drupal.  This is pretty awesome....
Most web applications are changed and adapted quite frequently and quickly. Their environment, for example the size and the behaviour of the user base, are constantly changing. What was sufficient yesterday can be insufficient today. Especially in a web environment it is important to monitor and ...
