Nominations Open for Drupal Association At Large Director

It’s a great time to be part of the Drupal Association. We’ve done some amazing work in the last few years, and we’re in a great position to work with the community to continue to improve and grow fully into our mission. As a Drupal Association At-Large Director, you’d be in the center of the action. The At-large Director position is specifically designed to ensure community representation on the Drupal Association board and we strongly encourage anyone with an interest to nominate themselves today.

Drupal Association Board Meeting: 21 January 2015

In the first board meeting of 2015, we hit the pause button and looked back on 2014. With all the numbers in and so many projects completed, we wanted to evaluate our success (and our misses) with the board and with you. We feel really good about what we accomplished with the rest of the community. To me, it's doubly impressive because the Association spent so much of last year growing like crazy.

Drupal.org team week notes #31: 2014 in review

Now that we are few weeks into 2015, we’d like to look back at 2014 and share some interesting numbers about Drupal.org.

Last year Drupal.org received almost 48.9 million visits from 21.2 million unique visitors. The spike around September/October is due to spam-related traffic, and, of course, DrupalCon Amsterdam.

India – Embracing a Contribution Culture

DrupalCamp DelhiWhile we know there are over 33,000 Drupal developers around the globe, I had no idea how strong Drupal was in India until I was there with Rachel Friesen, scouting locations for a possible DrupaCon Asia. By meeting with the community at camps, meetups, and dinners, we saw first hand how strongly India is innovating with Drupal and contributing back to the Project.

Drupal.org 2015 Advertising Initiatives

I was hired by the Drupal Association in October 2014 to develop a new revenue stream from advertising on Drupal.org. For some time we’ve been trying to diversify revenue streams away from DrupalCon, both to make the Association more sustainable and to ensure that DrupalCons can serve community needs, not just our funding needs. We’ve introduced the Drupal Jobs program already and now, after conversations with the community, we want to put more work into Drupal.org advertising initiatives.

A Few Things to Unwrap on Drupal's Birthday

Happy birthday to Drupal! On this day in 2001, Drupal 1.0 was released.

Using Personas in the Community

Cathy TheysNow that we’ve seen real representatives of our Drupal.org user personas, you may be thinking, “these personas are pretty cool, but I’m not sure how they affect me."

Beyond just the obvious applications towards redesigning Drupal.org, any member of our community can use the Drupal.org personas to build better Drupal training programs, tutorials, and Drupal events.

Drupal.org team week notes #30

It’s been awhile since our last week notes post, but before a lot of you will go off to celebrate holidays, we wanted to tell you about some of the recent exciting changes on Drupal.org

Responsive Drupal.org

As a New Year’s present to all Drupal.org visitors, today we deployed the initial responsive version of Bluecheese theme. This means that Drupal.org will now look much better on small and large screens. Drupal.org subsites on Drupal 7, such as Api.Drupal.org and Assoc.Drupal.org, will follow as they are tested.

The work on responsifying the theme started at Drupal Dev Days in Szeged earlier this year, with the final testing happening during BADCamp in November.

We’d like to thank our wonderful volunteers for making this happen:
LewisNyman, dasjo, emma.maria, mallezie, Manuel Garcia, sqndr, thamas.

This is the initial deployment, though more page-by-page improvements will be coming. Drupal.org is a big site, with lots of pages that will need specific mobile-first design changes.
