Drupal 8

Effective form spam protection with Form Protect

Form Protect is released for Drupal 8 and 7

Form Protect is my first Drupal 8 module, even it's a tiny one. First I needed the module for a Drupal 7 client project. But after having the D7 module running, I felt that it's good opportunity to write my first Drupal 8 port.

Welcome Drupal 8!

First Drupal 8, the Release Candidate 1, is out after a fantastic work of more than 3,200 core contributors. Although we are a small company, we are proud to have contributed to this effort.

Drupal 8 has revamped its user interface; added WYSIWYG and in-place editing; significantly improved mobile support; added and improved key contributed modules including Views, Date, and Entity Reference; introduced a new object-oriented backend leveraging Symfony components; revamped configuration management; improved multilingual support; and added hundreds of other improvements. The fastest Drupal ever is here.

Drupal 8 is now part of our Training Curricula

As the date for Drupal 8 stable release is approaching, we’re excited to announce that Webikon has extended its training modules to include also Drupal 8 along with the existing Drupal 7.

Starting with the „8” release, Drupal has adopted the modern PHP concepts and standards, object-oriented programming, and the Symfony framework. While a lot of the Drupal concepts (Fields, Views, Entities, Nodes) continue to exist in Drupal 8, they are now implemented using object-oriented programming design patterns.

Alkuvoima+East Group, a Finnish strategic digital marketing agency, invited us to join one of their interesting events in Helsinki. We were asked to present some hot topics like: ‟Drupal 8 — What’s Cooking?”, ‟Migrate to Drupal 8” and ‟Drupal 8 as a mobile backend” along with another cutting-edge presentation: ‟Drupal and Apache Stanbol”. The big interest aroused by the ‟Migrate to Drupal 8” topic inspired me to elaborate on this subject.

At Drupalcon Prague 2013 Dries announced the switch to a migration-based upgrade and the move of Migrate module in Drupal core. In this write-up I will introduce you to migration basics: concepts, flow, components and then I will illustrate a complete migration process, as it works, now, in Drupal 8 by explaining how a real migration has been implemented in a real module. Here we go!
