At The DropTimes (TDT), we constantly evolve. The formative steps for us were challenging. We might be just out of infancy, but still in childhood. That does not give us any excuse not to be a better version of what we were yesterday.
DrupalCon Lille, this year's European mega event of the Drupalers, came with a surprise. Instead of direct talk, Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal, took the help of a fable to talk about what contributed to the exiting of young developers in favour of other CMSes and how Drupal plans to regain their confidence.
Inter-CMS Working Group (ICWG), a consortium of four major FOSS content management systems, has issued an open letter on the significance of Free and Open Source Software in the EU’s proposed Cyber Resilience Act (CRA).
“A larger issue is the turnaround time to get quality reviews on Drupal.org. Developers will get frustrated when they work hard on a patch to Drupal, but their code languishes for months and even years. It can be very demoralizing to anyone,” warns Mike Herchel. He was speaking to TheDropTimes (TDT) ahead of the Florida DrupalCamp 2023.
As part of our effort to feature products and distributions around Drupal, TheDropTimes (TDT) reached out to Jurriaan Roelofs, the founder and senior product manager of DXPR and arranged an email interview with him. Jurriaan painstakingly replied to them. Here is the result:
The Drop Times (TDT) approached Italo Mairo for an interview, asking questions about his work, and he was kind enough to reply via email. His answers inspire any Free Libre and Open-Source Software contributors in general and aspiring Drupal contributors in particular. It would also appeal to young engineers passionate about engineering drawing, computer graphics and visualisation. Read on to grab a bite from the exciting conversation.
It is extremely problematic to train an AI on code covered by Open Source licenses and then allow people to release this copiloted code without licensing compliance, opines Matt Obert. He was answering a question about pair programming tools in a slack interview by TDT ahead of the New England Drupal Camp 2022.
Coordinator of Drupal Decoupled Menus Initiative and a Senior Technology Consultant at Pantheon, Brian Perry, see framework-agnostic web components as a good fit for Drupal. In this email interview, Brian talks to the Drop Times about his first brush with the community and the Generic Drupal Web Components project.
