How did DrupalCon Europe 2020 compare to an in-person event?

A word of appreciation for Group’s sponsors

Last DrupalCon Europe, I advocated for more sustainable contribution. I had been struggling to come to terms with the amount of takers versus makers and instead of presenting yet another technical topic, I tried my hand at expressing my feelings instead. And here we are now, celebrating a new release of Group’s module.

Improving Group (and core) with a modular handler system

Entity types in core come with what is known as handlers: Various smaller classes that carry out a specific task for the entity type. Group copied this system for its own plugins, but quickly found out that there are severe extensibility limitations to how core deals with handler declarations.

A Drop of Decoupled Menu Initiative

The Decoupled Menu Initiative Team ran an online hackathon during DrupalCon North America 2021. Here, I am examining why it held importance, what we achieved and how we can drive it forward.

Group is finally released. A look on the past and the future

After having worked on the Drupal 8 version for almost 5 years, the Group module has finally got its 8.x-1.0 release. I am personally very proud of this major milestone and am not even a little bit disappointed it took me longer than Drupal 8’s lifecycle to build. 

Fühlt sich an wie zuhause

Drupal 9

Es ist nun schon ein paar Jahre her, aber ich erinnere mich noch gut daran, als ich zum ersten Mal ein frisch installiertes Drupal 7 sah, nachdem ich mit der Version 6 vertraut war. Oder nachdem ich Drupal 8 zum ersten Mal installiert hatte. “Woooow” ging es mir durch den Kopf. Alles schien vertraut und dennoch neu. Genau dieser Wow-Effekt aber fehlt beim Upgrade von Drupal 8 auf Drupal 9. Und das ist gut so.
