After a month of planning and organizational introspection in July, the Association spent August getting down to brass tacks. Since May, progress on Drupal 8 criticals has been rapid and we focused on doing our part to clear blockers for the upcoming Drupal 8 release candidate.
Here we shine the spotlight on one Global Training Day event that came about from a partnership between a Drupal development company and a local cosmetics company. See more wrap up posts from GTD at https://www.drupal.org/global-training-days/2015.
July was an action packed month at the Drupal Association - we had our quarterly prioritization with the Working Groups, our annual all-hands summer staff meeting, and mentored two tremendously dedicated interns throughout.
Our primary engineering focus was on DrupalCI and Localize.drupal.org - though we also found time to make some iterative changes to Drupal.org in a few areas, namely: issue credit refinements, performance, groundwork for the new content model.
Here we go again! It's your monthly summary of all things board meeting at the Drupal Association. This month we covered board governance (there's a seat opening up), the D8 Accelerate Campaign, and the Association strategic frame. Plus, as a bonus, the board approved the Q2 financials for publication.
OSCON, the annual open source conference, brings over 4,000 people together in Portland this July. We are a proud participant again this year and we are excited to talk about Drupal to a wider audience.
