Professional Drupal hosting and development with Kubernetes and Helm

Kubernetes and its wide ecosystem of supporting technologies is revolutionizing the hosting industry and making container-based infrastructures accessible to a much wider audience. However, while there are existing (sometimes even "official") solutions that offer Drupal setups out of the box, most are missing support for the standard development processes that are used by professional Drupal agencies.

Creating an enterprise level editorial experience for Drupal 8 using React

With the powerful web APIs it has become relatively easy to create decoupled applications with Drupal 8 as a backend. A number of lighthouse applications have been created and powerful demo systems and starterkits such as 'Reservoir' und 'Contenta' have emerged.

Usually decoupled applications are used to display content, but editing of content still takes place in the backend.

REST Ready: Auditing established Drupal 8 websites for use as a content hub

Talk
Industry track

For many organisations Drupal 8 websites evolve over time from a traditional coupled HTML front-end into much more. As the API first initiative is underway unlocking the potential of our content, existing Drupal 8 sites can be progressively decoupled or used as content hubs that power other digital experiences. What does this mean for established websites that are undergoing such transitions?

Code with style! Prettier + ESLint

Talk

Prettier is a great ally for the developer. It makes your code formatting uniform and consistent.

While ESlint detects and enforces certain rules, educating the developer about what's wrong with their code, Prettier takes a different approach, by parsing all your code and formatting it with its own opinionated style, so you don't need to worry about it anymore.

Preventing Burnout

All professionals deal with challenging, high-stress and/or high-pressure situations. Everyone has their limits, and too much stress or pressure can lead to “burnout,” a state of physical and emotional exhaustion. Burnout takes its toll not only on the individual but also co-workers, team, friends, and family.  By working together, individuals and managers can avoid burnout.

Herding cats – How to build and run a large distributed team of experts

Talk

The vast majority of organisations and companies today run in a model that’s designed for the Industrial Age. The world is seen as a complicated place, where a small team of expert leaders is required to make sense of it and provide instructions for the operational staff. This mode of operation is no longer applicable in the Internet Age we operate in. At best, the company fails to tap into the full potential of its employees.
