We’ve compiled all the blog posts we wrote in the final month of 2018. Besides continuing with our Community Interviews series, we also introduced a brand new series of posts - the Story of Agiledrop, in which we discuss our work practices and give you a glimpse into what it’s like to work as a member of our A-team. Have a look and stay tuned!
How to Create a Node in Drupal 8 using REST
The first blog post we wrote in December was a short tutorial on creating a node in Drupal 8 using RESTful web services. RESTful web services are the underlying principles that enable the concept of “headless Drupal”, and they bring about a plethora of possibilities for the customization of a Drupal site. This post takes you through the basic function of creating a node using these services and serves as a kind of demo of the feature.
The Story of Agiledrop: Introduction
Our next post was the first chapter of our new series, the Story of Agiledrop. Here we explained our workflow and the advantages it has had, both for our dedicated team and for our clients. Thanks to such a well-defined workflow, our A-team can keep improving and growing, professionally as well as personally. But, of course, we also encountered some obstacles when defining our workflow and putting it into effect - we discussed these in the series’ second chapter.
Interview with Kevin Kaland, aka wizonesolutions: Towards a more and more decoupled Drupal
The third post was part of our Community Interviews series. We talked with the digital wizard Kevin Kaland of WizOne Solutions, who revealed to us his thoughts on Drupal’s future as well as some more personal, non-Drupal related bits of information. Besides being actively involved in the community as the maintainer of the FillPDF module among other things, he’s also an avid traveler, hiker and language enthusiast. Take a look at what we talked about.
The Story of Agiledrop: Our Training Program
Finally, just before the holiday season, we wrote a blog post on our effective training program, the second chapter in Agiledrop’s story. While the first chapter concentrated on our workflow and its advantages, this second one dove into the challenges we faced when setting up such a unique workflow. We deal with the first of these challenges - providing a number of clients with proven and experienced developers - more thoroughly, and reveal how we succeeded in finding a very beneficial solution for it.
That’s that for our blog posts from December. We hope 2018 was a successful year and the transition into 2019 a pleasant one for everyone. Check back later this month or keep following our blog for any new content!
