- What is Kalatheme?
- Does this play nicely with Panels/Context etc?
- I don’t actually have any experience with Panels In Place Editor. What functionality does that provide the theme?
- What version of Bootstrap are you using?
- Is Sass-ability built in?
- On the Project Page, it says you can use other Bootstrap themes. How does that work?
- You mentioned a subtheme generator. What is that? How does it work?
- Is this a base theme that people should sub-theme? Or can people use it out of the box.
- What are the Drush commands that work with Kalatheme?
- What do you see as the target audience for Kalatheme?
- Do you know of any sites using Kalatheme that we can look at?
Have you heard of/used NodeSquirrel?
Use "StartToGrow" it's a 12-month free upgrade from the Start plan to the Grow plan. So, using it means that the Grow plan will cost $5/month for the first year instead of $10. (10 GB storage on up to 5 sites)
As the Drupal project matures, new technologists surveying the landscape of available technologies may not pick Drupal as their platform of choice. Chapter Three has met this challenge by encouraging people at the beginning of their careers to explore Drupal and share our love of the platform.
Two years ago, Terence Yang showed up at the BADCamp registration table on Saturday morning and ended up being a stellar volunteer for the entire weekend. The one request he had at the end of the camp was to learn more about Drupal.
The decision was easy to bring Terence on as an intern. We know from past experience that community volunteers make a great addition to our office.
BAVC's team of videographers Chris Pizarro and Nelson G. Navarrete created a short documentary describing Terence's experience at Chapter Three.
Only 7 precious days remain until applications close for sessions, training, and scholarships at DrupalCon Austin. Help us spread the word about this deadline to your co-workers, user groups, and twitter following-- DrupalCon Austin is shaping up to be our biggest conference yet, and you can help us ensure anyone has a chance to be part of it!
Prior to each conference, trainers submit proposals and the training selection team, a global and local track chair, work with the Program Coordinator to select the trainings that will be offered. Many top-quality proposals aren’t selected, simply because there are more potentials submitted than can be offered. To make the path to training more clear, here are some insights into the selection process and how to best present your training for consideration.
One of the ways that Palantir gives back to the communities that support the open source tools we use is by helping to organize and sponsor local and regional events. One upcoming event that we’re very excited about is MidCamp, a three-day celebration of all things Drupal here in Chicago March 28-30.
MidCamp is a brand-new Drupal event designed to educate and engage Drupal users and evaluators throughout the Midwest. It will feature three days of training, curated sessions, and sprints for those looking to increase their Drupal knowledge and for the opportunity to rub shoulders with internationally-renowned Drupal experts.
One of those experts is our own Larry Garfield, who will be co-presenting MidCamp’s Saturday keynote along with Lullabot’s Jeff Eaton. They’ll be providing a tour of the upcoming Drupal 8, talking not just about its new features but also its new philosophy.
For those looking for a more in-depth look, Palantir will be offering two half-day training sessions on Friday for Drupal site builders and module developers who want to be able to hit the ground running with Drupal 8 once it’s released.
And with several Palantir team members having proposed sessions for MidCamp and planning to participate in Sunday’s sprints, you’ll be sure to see some of us around all three days of the conference.
Located at the University Center in downtown Chicago, MidCamp is situated within walking distance of many of the city’s tourist attractions, restaurants and nightlife.
But what sets MidCamp truly apart is that it is a community effort, organized and supported by volunteers and sponsors from a wide variety of companies and organizations throughout the region. Among those volunteers is our own Andrea Soper, who is leading the planning team. Other Palantir team members helping out with various aspects of the event include Nate Striedinger, Bec White, and myself. In addition, we’ve also thrown our financial support behind the event as one of its Gold-level sponsors.
Whether you’re an existing Drupal user, developer, designer, site builder, or are someone new to the community, you won’t want to miss out on MidCamp. Visit www.midcamp.org to learn more and purchase your tickets today.
We look forward to seeing you there!
1. So Peter, what's your role at Mediacurrent, both internally and client-related?
I am a "Drupal Developer", so I take care of site builds, writing custom modules, consulting on how to accomplish clients' goals, and a bit of theming here and there.
2. We're so glad to have you! Give us an idea of what professional path brought you here.
I got started with computer programming when I was in high school, then was exposed to Web development right after. With the exception of a few side-quests, this is what I've been doing ever since.
3. How did you first get involved with Drupal?
Here at Drupalize.Me everyone is contributing time to Drupal 8. For my part, I'm turning my attention back to the Drupal Ladder. I was heavily involved in this project when it started a few years ago, and it remains a great resource for bringing people up to speed on the technical aspects of contributing to Drupal Core. The Drupal Ladder is a collection of lessons—organized step-by-step like a ladder—that walk you through the basic tools and processes used by the Drupal community. If you want to contribute to Drupal 8, the Drupal Ladder is an easy place to start, and your first step should be the Drupal Core Ladder. (There are numerous ladders for different topics; stick with the Core ladder initially.) Here are two ways you can dive in:
Ryan Weaver is the single biggest contributor to the Symfony2 framework's documentation (which is excellent, check it out!), a self-described Symfony evangelist, and lead at KnpUniversity.com, makers of fantastic PHP tutorial screencasts like this one on using Composer to include PHP libraries in Drupal 7.
Last Saturday (February 22nd, 2014), thirty-one Drupalers joined together at Classic Graphics for the Charlotte Drupal Drive-in. The day was full of presentations, BOFs, and general chatting about Drupal and related web technologies.
The day-long, un-conference-style event was the brainchild of Thomas Lattimore. After CharDUG wasn't able to pull together the human resources to repeat the success of DrupalCamp Charlotte 2012, Thomas mentioned that he had an idea. Since he knew organizers had limited time to commit to planning, he wanted to host an un-conference-style event, allowing for simpler planning than a full-blown Drupal camp. You can learn more about his concept on the DruaplEasy Podcast.
The event started with breakfast goodies, a welcome to the event, a thank you to our sponsors, and session pitches. The list of pitched ideas quickly grew to enough items to easily fill the day with sessions in two rooms. The group decided to plan the morning sessions by splitting beginner and advanced topics in separate rooms. The organic nature of the event and Classic's space allowed for the beginner session to split into two rooms when it was clear the group had different needs and questions.
Morning session topics included, contributing to Drupal, beginning site building and theming, integrating Drupal and Meteor.js, and a combined talk about options for dev, staging, production workflows.
During lunch (sponsored by the Drupal Association, attendees enjoyed chatting about the previous sessions and meeting each other.
Next, we planned sessions for the afternoon. Most attendees stayed in our larger room where we had a number of great topics, including Aegir, Acquia Lift, the Demo Framework, and Features. In addition to the main sessions, a group started talking about Open Atrium 2 in small conference room.
The event ended with a wrap-up to talk about what we learned and any lingering questions. Everyone I heard from during the wrap-up and following the event had great things to say about the format. They really liked the organic nature of the event.
From my perspective, the event was a success. The format allowed for a relaxed atmosphere where beginner and seasoned Drupalers alike were able discuss their projects, ideas, and questions. While much of the group was from the Charlotte metro area, we also had attendees from the Atlanta metro area, Boone, NC, Tryon, NC, and High Point, NC.
Some kudos from attendees:
"I really liked the splinter rooms.. it was nice to even start a session in one room and split from there based on what." - Angel Cox
"Awesome. I liked that we built an agenda on the fly using feedback from the group, and that many of the sessions came from users who had pretty specific "how do I do X?" type questions. My favorite presentation ended up being a sort-of group lead discussion on how different people are doing dev-staging-prod release cycles within their organizations. Having a local Acquia employee give (the first!) presentation on Lift was amazing." - Jeremy Edgell
I would like to thank Classic Graphics, the Drupal Association, and Command Partners for supporting the Charlotte Drupal Drive-in. Also, thanks to all those who attended and led sessions. I see a repeat of Charlotte Drupal Drive-in in 2015 in our future!

We have just finished developing a loyalty program system for a Belgian coffee shop, so we thought we could summarize what we’ve learned to help Drupalists working on similar projects.
Loyalty programs are structured marketing efforts that reward and encourage loyal buying behavior. The owner of a loyalty card is identified as a member in the loyalty program who is entitled either a discount on the current purchase, or an allotment of points that can be used for future purchases.
