A review of the open source tools created and/or used by the Drupal development team at Promet Source.12:36amEET
Part I highlighted the challenges of deployments, defined good deployments, and introduced the tools for developing the Promet way. If you haven’t already, you should probably read Part I now.
An introduction to Promet's Drupal 7 Framework: A set of tools and process for Drupal development.12:42amEET
How often do pushes turn into nail biting, hair pulling, obscenity screaming, hours-long events? How often does one hear, “It works on my machine!” How fast can you push all the work (bug fixes, new features, etc.) to production? Theoretically, only in the time necessary to deploy the code.
What happens when Promet sends our CTO to discuss Agile Development to a legal tech conference?8:12pmEEST
Q: What do a group of lawyers and a group of Drupal tech geeks have in common?
My first presentation at a conference with this new, fancy title of "CTO" was Imagine, an annual event for the International Legal Technology Association. I had come to the ILTA Conference with the expectation that in many ways, I’d be the tech geek, sticking out like an astronaut at a rodeo. I mean, the law industry? That’s an industry known for being sleek. And here I am, a glasses-clad CTO from a web development shop... A leading nerd of nerds. Looking out into a sea of bright-eyed individuals who could easily be mistaken for Drupal camp attendees, I realized “I am in my element. It doesn’t matter in what industry I am presenting; it only matters that I am amongst my people: the tech world.”
An easy question; a difficult answer.11:28pmEEST
Recently, it has been a pressing question that the team at Promet has had to ask itself in order to grow at the rate that the market is demanding. This isn't necessarily a bad problem to have, but finding those “special someones” that either have the ability to get on the ball quickly or already have an innate ability to "Drupal" are exceptionally hard to find.
Drupal 8 features unit level testing which will improve Promet's Continuous Integration practices.11:57pmEEST
At MidCamp (Midwest Drupal camp), I found out a really fascinating thing about Drupal 8: Support for PHPUnit is going to be part of the base distribution. This means a great deal to Solutions Architects and Developers at Promet because we have been striving to integrate automated tests into our build. Perhaps you remember from my talks or previous posts, number four of my 10 Principles of Continuous Integration is "Self-Testing Build".
A Spanish tutorial about Vagrant and Drupal.7:11pmEEST
An often unsung advantage that Drush can give you is the ability to quickly sync your Drupal installations between multiple environments.1:18amEET
One of main draws to Drush is the library's ability to make developer lives easier. There are two simple commands that work using Drush aliases that can help sync database and files between multiple Drupal instances. First we'll go over setting up an alias file for Drush. After that, we'll document the usage of Drush's SQL-sync and rsync commands.
