New Case studies section on Drupal.org

The new Case studies section on Drupal.org has been built and launched. You may not have noticed, since the look of the homepage hasn’t changed, but the case studies have a new home with a new look. This has been a multi-layered effort involving the Drupal Association web team and several community volunteers.

Now we need some great new case study content. We’re looking to feature Drupal sites that have one or more of these qualities:

  • Well-maintained
  • Visually appealing custom theme
  • Stand out for performance optimization, interaction, customization, accessiblity or third-party integration
  • Positive and inspiring examples for business owners, site builders and developers to learn from

You can help by writing a case study on your own impressive project, or volunteer your time as a reviewer of case studies.

Why write a case study?

Here's a few reasons:

  • Promote a great Drupal site; show the world what Drupal can do
  • Recognize your team members for their hard work
  • Recognize maintainers of the contributed modules that you’ve used

Leadership Change

People in the Drupal project are currently exploring Drupal community governance, and among the questions they'll be thinking about are the leadership and structure of the Documentation Team -- so expect an announcement sometime soon! In the meantime, I'm not going to be hosting Documentation Office Hours, but if someone else wants to schedule an Office Hours, go ahead and post an event to the Documentation groups.drupal.org page.

DrupalCon São Paulo Updates and Call for Session Proposals

Olá! Join Drupal project founder Dries Buytaert and core committer Angie Byron this December 6-8 in beautiful Brazil to bring a little Carnaval to Drupal.

What is DrupalCon?

Those of us getting really excited that it is almost time for DrupalCon again sometimes need to explain to our friends, colleagues, or family members what all the fuss is about.

Explaining DrupalCon

Have you ever had trouble putting it into words? "Yeah, Mom, we sit in rooms together and write code! ... Yes, I do that all year ... Yes, I talk to these people online all the time ... But DrupalCon is incredible because it's so ... y'know, great! I met Dries! I committed a patch with Webchick!"

I was thinking about this recently and started jotting down some of my impressions of what goes on at a DrupalCon. DrupalCon is so big and so busy, no one has the same DrupalCon as anyone else, of course, but here's a quick DrupalCon primer in the form of a ...
