#D8Rules As a Proof that Drupal Community Is a Living Cell

16
Jul
2014

When D8Rules project waiting in a Funding phase had just seven days left to be successfully funded, success didn’t seem likely. The project had raised just over 40% of its funding goal so far. The days shortened; the pressure rose. Happiness exploded exactly two days before the finish line thanks to the rescuing amount which came just in time.

The Biggest Nest of Funders So Far

We know that the Drupal Community is generous in donating money. They confirmed it again in the case of the ‘D8Rules - Support the Rules module for Drupal 8’ project. Together, 138 backers funded 106% of its funding goal. It equated to 15.973 dollars. With this number, D8Rules is, for the moment, the biggest project successfully funded on Drupalfund.us.

Public crowdfunding for D8Rules on Drupalfund started on May 13th. In one day, funders covered 8% of the funding goal already—quite good for a start. During the first two weeks the donating line grew and then it became static. The days were flowing away and more than a half of the final amount was still missing. What happened next?!

Announcing Drupalfund.us - Crowdfunding the future of Drupal development

19
Sep
2013

Drupalfund.us is a crowdfunding platform for Drupal-related projects.

The Problem

As Drupal-the-software and Drupal-the-community grow and mature, we are coming to a point where we must find sustainable ways to continue Drupal’s growth and success. We created Drupalfund because we, like you, love Drupal and being part of its amazing community. The saying, "Come for the software, stay for the community," gets to the heart of it. Drupal is all about people: The innovators, developers, visionaries, designers, and everyone else who devotes their time and resources to keep Drupal a top of the line content management platform.

Most Drupal development has always been backed by individuals and companies volunteering or donating their time and money to contribute to Drupal. The majority of this development (even core development) is done during developers’ free time, even cutting into time that could be spent on paid work for many. While this generosity is laudable, it still means many issues, fixes, and changes get pushed back and fixed only when a developer can find or “steal” some time.

DrupalCamp Vienna 2009 Report - Part 2

03
Dec
2009

To continue with our report from DrupalCamp Vienna 2009, I would like to fill in with some of the sessions Jozef wasn't present at. Not that he would be just hanging around but we have decided to split up as the different topics interested each of us to bring as much as possible from the DrupalCamp Vienna. There were always two parallel sessions running on Friday and even three parallel sessions on Saturday during whole day. So there really was what to choose from. And to keep it more funny (... and healthy :-)) the sessions were in other rooms, other floors, even other buildings. So it was also very nice cardio training :-). First session I would like to cover was from Saturday - "Theming Drupal - The gap between PHP Developers and Designers". Raphael (@rapsli) opened one of the hot topics: whose responsible for area between design and development. He described Drupal's theming system and showed some best practices of Drupal theming. The conclusion is that Drupal developers and themers support each other work hand in hand.

This Friday and Saturday (27 – 28 Nov) DrupalCamp Vienna was happening at the Vienna Tech University.  Over 200 Drupalists from Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech, Hungary, USA, Canada, Ireland, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Germany, Argentina and a few Austrians  ;) came to enjoy networking, learn new stuff and share knowledge. Here is a short summary from sessions I was able to attend. Note: slides from sessions will be uploaded to each session node on Drupalcamp Vienna website Yes it is a coffee machine with Drupal :) Source: Flickr In the first session cgalli showed us "How to build a Drupal website in 40 minutes". He presented the “usual suspects” modules like cck, views, imagecache and using a Marinelli theme he built a basic website for an Austrian football club.
