Oomph Insights: Equity by Design with a new Inclusive Language Tool

3 months 2 weeks ago
A lot of people decided to “wake up” during the summer of 2020 and the pandemic. Wake up to the facts that were in front of us all along, but which, if they did not directly affect you, were easy to ignore. Wake up to the fact that BIPOC folks have been dealing with atrocities from micro-aggressions to outright murder for too long. The fact is, white privilege feels dirty and guilt-inducing because it should. Because it is a thing that exists and that some of us never asked for but we still have to own it and figure out how to turn it into allyship. It was a difficult few years for some of us…

Overview  The agency’s challenge A large federal agency wanted a new website dedicated to a specific subset of its stakeholders. The agency was already using GovCMS for other sites, so wanted a new GovCMS Drupal 9 website.  Note : The agency can’t be named for security reasons.   The transformation Salsa cloned another new website we’d built for the agency using GovCMS and CivicTheme . The client then uploaded new content and images to the site. The combination of cloning the site and using CivicTheme saved our client considerable time and costs. The site was built in 2 months and for under $20k.

The Drop Times: Remembering Rachel Olivero

3 months 2 weeks ago

Four years have passed since Rachel Olivero left us. Drupal rever her by naming the current default frontend theme, 'Olivero.' Drupal is now WCAG compliant, and our added support for ATAG 2.0 proves that we live by her legacy. Drupal encourages the use of assistive technologies. It is all the more important for a person with vision disabilities. Accessibility, Diversity, and Inclusion are the cardinal ideals we follow, and Rachel was involved in all these areas. Her memorial in Drupal.org recalls that as a person who was blind, transgender, and a lesbian, Rachel understood a lot about the importance of diversity. She passed away on February 03, 2019. Let us keep on her vision forward, keeping Drupal open and accessible for everyone.

Last week, TheDropTimes (TDT) ran two interviews with the organizers of Florida DrupalCamp. AmyJune Hineline (volkswagenchick) emphasized the importance of accessibility in her interview, stating accessibility is not an option or an add-on; it should be a default. In the second interview, Adam Varn (hotsaucedesign) opines that the success of Olivero and Claro as modern, accessible themes shows that Drupal still has plenty to offer a themer interested in Drupal, and with the new Starterkit project coming to stabilization in Drupal 10, there will be even more tools.

Drupal 10 Development Cookbook got released last week, thanks to Matt Glaman, Kevin Quillen, and Justin Cornell. Drupal Association announced Rosa Ordinana and Lynne Capozzi joining as its new board members. As part of diversity and inclusion, the association is aligning with Black History Month. On Monday, 21 February 2021, at 10:00 am EST (15:00 hrs UTC), Joi Garrett, will introduce the new 'Black in Drupal' program.

Matt Glaman: The Drupal 10 Development Cookbook is out!

3 months 2 weeks ago

The Drupal 10 Development Cookbook is officially out! Special thanks to Kevin Quillen for his amazing assistance in writing the book. And my good friend Justin Cornell as a technical reviewer. You can order the print or ebook on Amazon (affiliate link) or Packt! This is technically the 3rd edition of the book. The first edition came out with the Drupal 8.0 release, and the second was around Drupal 8.5.0. So this covers everything that came with Drupal 9 and was added for Drupal 10!

We have 450 pages and fourteen chapters with walkthroughs and breakdowns for development with Drupal 10.

mandclu: A Quick Take on Headless and Performance

3 months 2 weeks ago
A Quick Take on Headless and Performance Image mandclu Fri, 02/10/2023 - 07:09 Body There are a number of great reasons to consider a headless architecture for a web project. I sometimes hear site speed listed as a primary motivation. Is a headless website guaranteed to be faster? Let's explore this idea. There are certainly many examples of fast headless websites online today. But there are, in fact, a lot of slow headless websites around as well. And according to Google and their Core Web Vitals reporting, a website using Drupal as its CMS is almost twice as likely to have a good score as one based on popular headless CMS options like Contentful or ContentStack. Is the above an apples to comparison? Of course not. But we can say with certainty that any site using a headless-only CMS has a headless front end, and that many of those identified as using Drupal do not. SiteMore

Salsa Digital Drupal-Related Articles: Melbourne Drupal Meetup — February 2023

3 months 2 weeks ago
The main focus for this month's Melbourne Drupal Meetup was a presentation by Suchi Garg and Phillipa Martin .  Phillipa started the presentation by looking at the context behind a recent Rules as Code (RaC) proof of concept. She then moved onto the process of codifying Australia’s COVID vaccination rules. Suchi then took a deep dive into how the Drupal OpenFisca module works with a Drupal webform. She also talked about how the webform sends API calls to OpenFisca, and how based on the responses, the user is redirected to different pages and results are generated and displayed.

3 months 2 weeks ago
In the B2C business model, consumers typically take spontaneous buying decisions to fulfill their immediate needs, but the B2B buyer journey is usually longer and more complex. B2B buyers have more complicated requirements. Multiple stakeholders decide whether to place an order, and the value of transactions is generally very high. Not all of the ready-made eCommerce platforms have in their list the functionalities that will suit your B2B company. To provide a personalized customer experience for your B2B sector, you will need a custom eCommerce website.
