Metal Toad has had the privilege to work over the past two years with DC Comics. What makes this partnership even more exciting, is that the main dccomics.com site also includes sites for Vertigo Comics and Mad Magazine. Most recently Metal Toad was given the task of building the new search feature for all three sites. However, while its an awesome privilege to work with such a well known brand as DC, this does not come without a complex set of issues for the three sites when working with Apache Solr search and Drupal.
A few months ago my DrupalCon Austin session was rejected. I was a bit upset, since presenting plays a big part in my trip to the states, and also surprised, as I mistakenly assumed my presentation repertoire would almost guarantee my session would be accepted. But the committee decided differently.
This has been an important moment for me. Two days later I told myself I don't care. I mean, I cared about the presentation, I just stopped caring that it was not selected, since I decided I was going to do it anyway. As an "unplugged" BoF.
The Gizra Way. I think this is probably the best presentation I've given so far, and quite ironically my rejected session is second only to Dries's keynote in YouTube.
You see - I had a "there is no spoon" moment. The second I realized it can be done differently, I was on my own track, perhaps even setting the path for others.Form API, Drupal 9
I use Drupal because Form API is so great No one, ever
Thomas Seidl and Nick Veenhof took a few minutes out of the Drupal 8 Search API code sprint at the Drupal DevDays in Szeged, Hungary to talk with me about the state-of-play and what's coming in terms of search in Drupal: one flexible, pluggable solution for search functionality with the whole community behind it.
- Checkout the issue queue for HAL and ReST.
- Use the quickstart tool: https://github.com/build2be/drupal-rest-test.

The Migrate module is, hands down, the defacto way to migrate content in Drupal. The only knock against it, is the learning curve. All good things come to those who take the time and learn it.
