Supporting the Drupal Community
As open source software, Drupal is used, built, taught, documented, and marketed by the global Drupal Community. This community of over 100,000 highly skilled and passionate developers who contribute code is one of the biggest strengths of the platform. Volunteers regularly organize events known as DrupalCamps to provide opportunities for the community to meet in person for knowledge sharing and training.
At the recent Texas Camp event, developers from around the state had a chance to learn more about the latest developments in Drupal and share best practices. Several members of our Interactive team attended the event in San Antonio, and Adcetera also sponsored the event.
The Adceterans at Texas Camp spent a lot of time learning more about decoupled (or headless) Drupal and hybrid (or progressively) decoupled Drupal. Decoupled Drupal allows you to deliver content on any front-end experience, including channels that aren’t tied to a website. This approach lets you create content once and display it on many different device types without having to redesign the content.
Accessibility was another focus topic for us. We want the sites we create to be usable by anyone regardless of their abilities, including those who use assistive technologies. Drupal provides a suite of tools to ensure a website is as accessible as possible, and we’re committed to staying current in our knowledge of these tools. We also attended sessions on site performance, auditing and testing; we even presented our own lightning talk on the topic of web caching.
