DrupalCon Amsterdam: Growing the Community & the Project Through Grants, Scholarships, and Mentoring in Amsterdam

Planet Drupal - Mon, 2014/07/28 - 11:00am

Grant and scholarship recipients have been selected for DrupalCon Amsterdam. We had a huge number of wonderful applicants, and selecting our grant and scholarship recipients was a challenge.

For applicants seeking grants, we focused on the importance of each candidate to the Drupal project and code as a whole. Scholarships, meanwhile, were awarded based on the impact or influence on the Drupal community and Drupal adoption that the person would have at their home region— though these were just a few of the many factors taken into account during the selection process.

We’re please to announce the following grant and scholarship recipients below:

Congratulations to all of our grant and scholarship recipients! We'd also like to extend a big thanks to our selection team: Emma Karayiannis (UK) Bart Feenstra (NL) Mike Anello (US).

We’re excited to see all these great people at DrupalCon Amsterdam, and can’t wait to learn from them and make the project even better. When you see our grant and scholarship recipients around volunteering at the event or mentoring new sprinters, give them a high five for being amazing! And regardless of whether you’re receiving financial assistance or not, if you’re coming to DrupalCon, you can share you knowledge and help make Drupal even better too by signing up to become a mentor.

Growing the Drupal project can’t happen if our community doesn’t grow, too— and there’s no better way to help grow the community at DrupalCon Amsterdam than to give back by teaching new skills and ideas to basic, intermediate, and advanced Drupalers.

Now running Drupal 8, in the most hipster way imagined.

It has been a weekend in the spirit of headless Drupal, front-end optimizations and server side hacks. The result is I updated my blog to Drupal 8. Since you are reading this, it must mean it is live.

First let's start with the cold facts (almost chronologically ordered by request lifetime):

Other front-end technologies used that does not directly relate to the request itself:

So, HHVM, huh?

Yeah, that's mostly just a novelty act. There is no real gain there. Quite the opposite, I have added some hacks to get around some limitations.

HHVM does not work very well with logged in users right now, but works alright for serving anonymous content.

When I reload and look at the source code, there is no css loading. WAT?

Yeah, I am just assuming you remember the styles from last page load. Also, I have made it an image to have a 1 HTTP request CMS, right?

No, really. How does that work?

The real magic is happening by checking if you as a user already have downloaded my page earlier. If you have, I don't need to serve you css, as far as I am concerned. You should have saved that last time, so I just take care of that.

OK, so you use a cookie and save css in localstorage. Does that not screw with the varnish cache

Good question. I have some logic to internally rewrite the cached pages with a key to the same varnish hash. This way, all users trying to look at a css-less page with the css stored in localstorage will be served the same page, and php will not get touched.

What a great idea!

Really? Are you really sure you have thought of all the limitations? Because they are many. But seeing as this is my personal tech blog, and I like to experiment, it went live anyway.

Give us the code!

Sure. The theme is at github. The stupid cache module is at github. Please be aware that it is a very bad idea to use it if you have not read the code and understand what it does.

And since I am feeling pretty bad ass right now, let's end with Clint Eastwood as an animated gif.
