Announcing newest Drupal.org Software Working Group members

Last summer, we created three Drupal.org working groups: one for content, one for software, and one for infrastructure. Since then, Working Group members have put countless hours of time and energy into making Drupal.org the best it can be! Now that we’re winding to the end of our first year with the working groups, we’d like to announce small changes in membership. We have two new members joining the Drupal.org Software Working Group!

Whitney Hess to lead Drupal.org user research


Several weeks ago, we issued an RFQ for User Research as part of our Drupal.org revamp. We received a big number of exciting submissions, and the Drupal Association staff and Drupal.org Content Working Group members had a wonderful time reviewing responses and interviewing potential vendors.

Now, after several weeks of reading and careful debate, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve selected a vendor for our user research: Whitney Hess!

Continuous Integration Efforts Get Easier with Drupal 8

At MidCamp (Midwest Drupal camp), I found out a really fascinating thing about Drupal 8: Support for PHPUnit is going to be part of the base distribution. This means a great deal to Solutions Architects and Developers at Promet because we have been striving to integrate automated tests into our build. Perhaps you remember from my talks or previous posts, number four of my 10 Principles of Continuous Integration is "Self-Testing Build". This makes Drupal a much more sought-after platform for shops looking to fully embrace Continuous Integration.
