Drupal Iron Camp was a great success
One of the biggest Drupal Camps in Europe this year was scheduled for the last weekend in November in the heart of Europe - Prague, Czech Republic. We definitely wanted to spread the Drupal word in central Europe.
Media, SEO and Paragraphs move the Drupalistas
MD Systems hosted the first Drupal User Group after the summer break. More than 25 Drupalistas gathered in Zurich Altstetten to join the presentations of Janez Urevc, Tassilo Gröper and Miro Dietiker followed by interesting discussions including food and drinks.
MD Systems actively participated at the DrupalCon Dublin 2016
The european version of DrupalCon 2016 happened at the end of last month in Dublin and we were part of it. In this post we recap it from the MD Systems perspective. What we’ve been doing there? Which discussions we’re most excited about? Read on.
We are striving to invest 20% of every project’s value back into the community
It is probably no secret that we are one of the bigger contributors to Drupal (definitely the biggest when company size is taken into consideration). Contribution is part of our daily routine. Every time when we run into a problem that can be resolved in a general/community way we try to do that. Our developers are active in the issue queues on a daily basis. Working in the drupal.org issue queue is as common as checking new messages on our company’s Mattermost channels.
Netzwoche.ch released - NP8 is more and more popular
On Monday, August 15th, we released another news portal based on the NP8 distribution: netzwoche.ch. Somedia Production was in charge of project management and design and ordered from MD Systems to take care of the functional and frontend implementation. Netzwoche.ch is the first of the four Netzmedien websites that are part of a multi channel publishing workflow based on Woodwing.
MD Systems introduced NP8 to the Big Apple
At the beginning of July we attended NYC Drupal camp, which is part of a bigger, mission-driven open source conference called Open camps. NYC Drupal camp is one of the biggest community-organized Drupal events in the world and we are always eager to return to it.
We loved Drupal Developer Days!
One of our favourite community events, Drupal Developer Days (DDD), happened last week in Milan. DDD is an event with rich history and strong tradition. It is independently organized by the Drupal community. DDD is primarily developer focused and community oriented. This makes it a perfect place to work side by side with other developers from the community, meet new people with common interests and start new initiatives and collaborations.
MD Systems and Acquia join forces to push Drupal 8 media forward
It is no secret that we at MD Systems take community very seriously. We have invested time and money in many Drupal 8 initiatives in the past 3 years. This has helped us adopting Drupal 8 sooner than the majority of the community and also resulted in MD Systems becoming the number one contributor to Drupal.
The Future of Paragraphs
Paragraphs recently gained focus and wide adoption in modern Drupal projects. The module is showcased on almost every DrupalCamp or DrupalCon as a best practice for advanced content creation in applications with a growing frequency of blog posts.With our experience in Media, we at MD Systems have decided to target Paragraphs as a focus topic for the future of content creation. After joining the team of maintainers, it was time to call the community for a workshop.
