While studying for the Acquia Developer Certification exam and working on many Drupal sites I have come across a collection of articles and resources which have improved my development and the way I approach solutions in Drupal. Even if you are an experienced Drupal developer or themer you will learn something that you have been doing wrong or that you can improve.


When preparing to integrate your organization's website with an association management system (AMS), you might feel overwhelmed by the prospect of the endeavor and not know quite where to start. This is natural, but with a little planning and due diligence you will have a successful integration and a more user-friendly experience for your members and your staff.


When considering what platform works best for nonprofit websites Drupal often comes up as the top choice. This is in part because the open source software is perfect for projects without large development budgets and yet can also accommodate any amount of customization your organization might require. Nonprofits like the Marine Corps Association and Foundation, Reserve Officers Association, and United States Naval Institute have chosen Drupal to manage their website and content, including online magazines, as they expand their global reach. 


On the second day of Adobe MAX, it became clear that there is a strong focus on the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS). However, there is a bigger story. That story recognizes that Adobe DPS has a purpose beyond coexisting with the Adobe AEM platform. Since its inception, DPS has been used in so many creative ways it has left the confines of the purely magazine/publications universe and shown value in many other areas both internally and externally to the organizations leveraging the tool.


The major overarching focus of the Adobe MAX 2014 conference, from my perspective, has been about how to bridge the different worlds that exist in technology today. Yesterday’s keynote focused on new Adobe app releases (Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Illustrator Draw, and Adobe Shape, to name three) and how to bridge the physical and digital worlds in terms of creativity. I wrote a blog post yesterday that touched on a couple of those topics. The demos from that keynote were quite impressive, and these new apps will, without a doubt, provide artists with more freedom to create and work from anywhere, on any device, at any time.
