Drupal Development Cycle - A Business Viewpoint

5 years ago

This is a tidied up re-post of something that I posted on the dev thread "Drupal as a moving Target".

I am someone who nearly had a heart attack when I first found out about this tendency to just drop / change stuff in core api for major version releases. My background is enterprise development so this really did not sit well with me at all and nearly made me back out of our decision to bet the bank on Drupal.

Drupal SEO - Bare Bones installation - SEO Series - 1

5 years ago

This post is the first in our Drupal SEO series and attempts to give you a reasonably indepth overview of what the different aspects of a standard drupal installation you will need to address for SEO are.

 

Drupal SEO on a bare bones installation (i.e. no additional modules installed) still needs a fair degree of knowledge if your new to drupal or SEO and can be quite daunting for someone new to SEO and/or Drupal. 

The post is broken down into three sections:

1) Modules and their relevance to Drupal SEO

2) Anatomy of a Blog post from an SEO viewpoint

3) A review of all the admin settings and how they impact SEO 

(Obviously I would never recommend doing a bare bones install as there are some wonderful modules that do loads of the work for you, but I think its important to understand the base your working from.)

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS "Hardy Heron": First Impressions

5 years ago

I upgraded my personal laptop to Hardy Heron last Thursday, along with everyone else. The download (just under 1GB for all the packages I needed) was surprisingly fast for what must have been an immensely busy time, and completed in less than two hours. I later heard stories of some people waiting several days for the download, so I guess I was lucky.

Drupal Amazon EC2 Developers & Testing AMI

5 years ago

iO1 have put up a public Drupal AMI for Amazon EC2 aimed primarily at Drupal Developers.

Basically its quite simple, normally when people create an AMI, they use a specific Drupal version in the AMI which while useful is somewhat limiting as you have to wait for someone to create the next AMI for the build of Drupal you want.
