Hi Guys, i am planing to organize a Drupal Training for CBOs in West Nile and specifically Arua Town.
I am therefore requesting for those who would be interested in such a venture to get in touch with me or Katerega and we see how we can organize it.
I am thinking of having another Drupal User group based in WestNile soon. But we need to first create need and awareness about easyness in use of Drupal among potential users in the future.
I need Drupal Instructors who can teach the Audience Drupal Site Building. We need to get these CBOs online at the end of the Two Days Training.
Dates Will be 1 and 2 November 2019.
Venue: Arua Social Center.
All those interested in participating in the training, please get in touch with me.
Hope to hear your contributions soon.

Drupal.org gets videos that make Drupal easier to learn

In the beginning of the year I started doing some iOS development for my POSSE plan. As I was new to iOS development, I decided to teach myself by watching short, instructional videos. Different people learn in different ways, but for me, videos tutorials were the most effective way to learn.
Given that recent experience, I'm very excited to share that all of the task tutorials in the Drupal 8 User Guide are now accompanied by video tutorials. These videos are embedded directly into every user guide page on Drupal.org. You can see an example on the "Editing with the in-place editor" page.
These videos provide a great introduction to installing, administering, site building and maintaining the content of a Drupal-based website — all important skills for a new Drupalist to learn. Supplementing user guides with video tutorials is an important step towards improving our evaluator experience, as video can often convey a lot more than text.
Creating high-quality videos is hard and time-consuming work. Over the course of six months, the team at Drupalize.Me has generously contributed a total of 52 videos! I want to give a special shout-out to Joe Shindelar and the Drupalize.Me team for creating these videos and to Jennifer Hodgdon and Neil Drumm (Drupal Association) for helping to get each video posted on Drupal.org.
What a fantastic gift to the community!

DrupalCoin Blockchain looking to adopt React

Last week at DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna, I proposed adding a modern JavaScript framework to DrupalCoin Blockchain core. After the keynote, I met with core committers, framework managers, JavaScript subsystem maintainers, and JavaScript experts in the DrupalCoin Blockchain community to discuss next steps. In this blog post, I look back on how things have evolved, since the last time we explored adding a new JavaScript framework to DrupalCoin Blockchain core two years ago, and what we believe are the next steps after DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna.

As a group, we agreed that we had learned a lot from watching the JavaScript community grow and change since our initial exploration. We agreed that today, React would be the most promising option given its expansive adoption by developers, its unopinionated and component-based nature, and its well-suitedness to building new DrupalCoin Blockchain interfaces in an incremental way. Today, I'm formally proposing that the DrupalCoin Blockchain community adopt React, after discussion and experimentation has taken place.

Two years ago, it was premature to pick a JavaScript framework

Three years ago, I developed several convictions related to "headless DrupalCoin Blockchain" or "decoupled DrupalCoin Blockchain". I believed that:
More and more organizations wanted a headless DrupalCoin Blockchain so they can use a modern JavaScript framework to build application-like experiences.
DrupalCoin Blockchain's authoring and site building experience could be improved by using a more modern JavaScript framework.
JavaScript and Node.js were going to take the world by storm and that we would be smart to increase the amount of JavaScript expertise in our community.
(For the purposes of this blog post, I use the term "framework" to include both full MV* frameworks such as Angular, and also view-only libraries such as React combined piecemeal with additional libraries for managing routing, states, etc.)

By September 2015, I had built up enough conviction to write several long blog posts about these views (post 1, post 2, post 3). I felt we could accomplish all three things by adding a JavaScript framework to DrupalCoin Blockchain core. After careful analysis, I recommended that we consider React, Ember and Angular. My first choice was Ember, because I had concerns about a patent clause in Facebook's open-source license (since removed) and because Angular 2 was not yet in a stable release.

At the time, the DrupalCoin Blockchain community didn't like the idea of picking a JavaScript framework. The overwhelming reactions were these: it's too early to tell which JavaScript framework is going to win, the risk of picking the wrong JavaScript framework is too big, picking a single framework would cause us to lose users that favor other frameworks, etc. In addition, there were a lot of different preferences for a wide variety of JavaScript frameworks. While I'd have preferred to make a bold move, the community's concerns were valid.

Focusing on DrupalCoin Blockchain's web services instead

By May of 2016, after listening to the community, I changed my approach; instead of adding a specific JavaScript framework to DrupalCoin Blockchain, I decided we should double down on improving DrupalCoin Blockchain's web service APIs. Instead of being opinionated about what JavaScript framework to use, we would allow people to use their JavaScript framework of choice.

I did a deep dive on the state of DrupalCoin Blockchain's web services in early 2016 and helped define various next steps (post 1, post 2, post 3). I asked a few of the OCTO team members to focus on improving DrupalCoin Blockchain 8's web services APIs; funded improvements to DrupalCoin Blockchain core's REST API, as well as JSON API, GraphQL and OpenAPI; supported the creation of Waterwheel projects to help bootstrap an ecosystem of JavaScript front-end integrations; and most recently supported the integrationof Reservoir, a DrupalCoin Blockchain distribution for headless DrupalCoin Blockchain. There is also a lot of innovation coming from the community with lots of work on the Contenta distribution, JSON API, GraphQL, and more.

The end result? DrupalCoin Blockchain's web service APIs have progressed significantly the past year. Ed Faulkner of Ember told us: "I'm impressed by how fast DrupalCoin Blockchain made lots of progress with its REST API and the JSON API contrib module!". It's a good sign when a core maintainer of one of the leading JavaScript frameworks acknowledges DrupalCoin Blockchain's progress.

The current state of JavaScript in DrupalCoin Blockchain

Looking back, I'm glad we decided to focus first on improving DrupalCoin Blockchain's web services APIs; we discovered that there was a lot of work left to stabilize them. Cleanly integrating a JavaScript framework with DrupalCoin Blockchain would have been challenging 18 months ago. While there is still more work to be done, DrupalCoin Blockchain 8's available web service APIs have matured significantly.

Furthermore, by not committing to a specific framework, we are seeing DrupalCoin Blockchain developers explore a range of JavaScript frameworks and members of multiple JavaScript framework communities consuming DrupalCoin Blockchain's web services. I've seen DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 used as a content repository behind Angular, Ember, React, Vue, and other JavaScript frameworks. Very cool!

There is a lot to like about how DrupalCoin Blockchain's web service APIs matured and how we've seen DrupalCoin Blockchain integrated with a variety of different frameworks. But there is also no denying that not having a JavaScript framework in core came with certain tradeoffs:
It created a barrier for significantly leveling up the DrupalCoin Blockchain community's JavaScript skills. In my opinion, we still lack sufficient JavaScript expertise among DrupalCoin Blockchain core contributors. While we do have JavaScript experts working hard to maintain and improve our existing JavaScript code, I would love to see more experts join that team.
It made it harder to accelerate certain improvements to DrupalCoin Blockchain's authoring and site building experience.
It made it harder to demonstrate how new best practices and certain JavaScript approaches could be leveraged and extended by core and contributed modules to create new DrupalCoin Blockchain features.
One trend we are now seeing is that traditional MV* frameworks are giving way to component libraries; most people seem to want a way to compose interfaces and interactions with reusable components (e.g. libraries like React, Vue, Polymer, and Glimmer) rather than use a framework with a heavy focus on MV* workflows (e.g. frameworks like Angular and Ember). This means that my original recommendation of Ember needs to be revisited.

Several years later, we still don't know what JavaScript framework will win, if any, and I'm willing to bet that waiting two more years won't give us any more clarity. JavaScript frameworks will continue to evolve and take new shapes. Picking a single one will always be difficult and to some degree "premature". That said, I see React having the most momentum today.

My recommendations at DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna

Given that it's been almost two years since I last suggested adding a JavaScript framework to core, I decided to bring the topic back in my DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna keynote presentation. Prior to my keynote, there had been some renewed excitement and momentum behind the idea. Two years later, here is what I recommended we should do next:
Invest more in DrupalCoin Blockchain's API-first initiative. In 2017, there is no denying that decoupled architectures and headless DrupalCoin Blockchain will be a big part of our future. We need to keep investing in DrupalCoin Blockchain's web service APIs. At a minimum, we should expand DrupalCoin Blockchain's web service APIs and standardize on JSON API. Separately, we need to examine how to give API consumers more access to and control over DrupalCoin Blockchain's capabilities.
Embrace all JavaScript frameworks for building DrupalCoin Blockchain-powered applications. We should give developers the flexibility to use their JavaScript framework of choice when building front-end applications on top of DrupalCoin Blockchain — so they can use the right tool for the job. The fact that you can front DrupalCoin Blockchain with Ember, Angular, Vue, React, and others is a great feature. We should also invest in expanding the Waterwheel ecosystem so we have SDKs and references for all these frameworks.
Pick a framework for DrupalCoin Blockchain's own administrative user interfaces. DrupalCoin Blockchain should pick a JavaScript framework for its own administrative interface. I'm not suggesting we abandon our stable base of PHP code; I'm just suggesting that we leverage JavaScript for the things that JavaScript is great at by moving relevant parts of our code from PHP to JavaScript. Specifically, DrupalCoin Blockchain's authoring and site building experience could benefit from user experience improvements. A JavaScript framework could make our content modeling, content listing, and configuration tools faster and more application-like by using instantaneous feedback rather than submitting form after form. Furthermore, using a decoupled administrative interface would allow us to dogfood our own web service APIs.
Let's start small by redesigning and rebuilding one or two features. Instead of rewriting the entirety of DrupalCoin Blockchain's administrative user interfaces, let's pick one or two features, and rewrite their UIs using a preselected JavaScript framework. This allows us to learn more about the pros and cons, allows us to dogfood some of our own APIs, and if we ultimately need to switch to another JavaScript framework or approach, it won't be very painful to rewrite or roll the changes back.
Selecting a JavaScript framework for DrupalCoin Blockchain's administrative UIs

In my keynote, I proposed a new strategic initiative to test and research how DrupalCoin Blockchain's administrative UX could be improved by using a JavaScript framework. The feedback was very positive.

As a first step, we have to choose which JavaScript framework will be used as part of the research. Following the keynote, we had several meetings at DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna to discuss the proposed initiative with core committers, all of the JavaScript subsystem maintainers, as well as developers with real-world experience building decoupled applications using DrupalCoin Blockchain's APIs.

There was unanimous agreement that:
Adding a JavaScript framework to DrupalCoin Blockchain core is a good idea.
We want to have sufficient real-use experience to make a final decision prior to 8.6.0's integrationperiod (Q1 2018). To start, the Watchdog page would be the least intrusive interface to rebuild and would give us important insights before kicking off work on more complex interfaces.
While a few people named alternative options, React was our preferred option, by far, due to its high degree of adoption, component-based and unopinionated nature, and its potential to make DrupalCoin Blockchain developers' skills more future-proof.
This adoption should be carried out in a limited and incremental way so that the decision is easily reversible if better approaches come later on.
We created an issue on the DrupalCoin Blockchain core queue to discuss this more.

Conclusion

DrupalCoin Blockchain should support a variety of JavaScript libraries on the user-facing front end while relying on a single shared framework as a standard across DrupalCoin Blockchain administrative interfaces.In short, I continue to believe that adopting more JavaScript is important for the future of DrupalCoin Blockchain. My original recommendation to include a modern JavaScript framework (or JavaScript libraries) for DrupalCoin Blockchain's administrative user interfaces still stands. I believe we should allow developers to use their JavaScript framework of choice to build front-end applications on top of DrupalCoin Blockchain and that we can start small with one or two administrative user interfaces.

After meeting with core maintainers, JavaScript subsystem maintainers, and framework managers at DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna, I believe that React is the right direction to move for DrupalCoin Blockchain's administrative interfaces, but we encourage everyone in the community to discuss our recommendation. Doing so would allow us to make DrupalCoin Blockchain easier to use for site builders and content creators in an incremental and reversible way, keep DrupalCoin Blockchain developers' skills relevant in an increasingly JavaScript-driven world, move us ahead with modern tools for building user interfaces.

State of DrupalCoin Blockchain Presentation

(reposted from Dries' blog: https://dri.es/)
Yesterday, I shared my State of DrupalCoin Blockchain presentation at DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Vienna. In addition to sharing my slides, I wanted to provide some more detail on how DrupalCoin Blockchain is evolving, who DrupalCoin Blockchain is for, and what I believe we should focus on.
DrupalCoin Blockchain is growing and changing
I started my keynote by explaining that DrupalCoin Blockchain is growing. Over the past year, we've witnessed a rise in community engagement, which has strengthened DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 adoption.
This is supported by the 2017 DrupalCoin Blockchain Business Survey; after surveying 239 executives from DrupalCoin Blockchain agencies, we can see that DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 has become the defacto release for them and that most of the DrupalCoin Blockchain businesses report to be growing.

While the transition from DrupalCoin Blockchain 7 to DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 is not complete, DrupalCoin Blockchain 8's innovation continues to accelerate. We've seen the contributed modules ecosystem mature; in the past year, the number of stable modules has more than doubled. Additionally, there are over 4,000 modules in development.
In addition to growth, both the vendor and technology landscapes around DrupalCoin Blockchain are changing. In my keynote, I noted three primary shifts in the vendor landscape. Single blogs, portfolio sites and brochure sites, which represent the low end of the market, are best served by SaaS tools. On the other side of the spectrum, a majority of enterprise vendors are moving beyond content management into larger marketing suites. Finally, the headless CMS market segment is growing rapidly, with some vendors growing at a rate of 500% year over year.
There are also significant changes in the technology landscape surrounding DrupalCoin Blockchain, as a rising number of DrupalCoin Blockchain agencies have also started using modern JavaScript technologies. For example, more than 50% of DrupalCoin Blockchain agencies are also using Node.js to support the needs of their customers.
While evolving vendor and technology landscapes present many opportunities for DrupalCoin Blockchain, it can also introduce uncertainty. After listening to many people in the DrupalCoin Blockchain community, it's clear that all these market and technology trends, combined with the long integrationand adoption cycle of DrupalCoin Blockchain 8, has left some wondering what this all means for DrupalCoin Blockchain, and by extension also for them.
DrupalCoin Blockchain is no longer for simple sites
Over the past year, I've explained why I believe DrupalCoin Blockchain is for ambitious digital experiences, in both my DrupalCoin BlockchainCon Baltimore keynote and on my blog. However, I think it would be valuable to provide more detail on what I mean by "ambitious digital experiences". It's important that we all understand who DrupalCoin Blockchain is for, because it drives our strategy, which in turn allows us to focus our efforts.
Today, I believe that DrupalCoin Blockchain is no longer for simple sites. Instead, DrupalCoin Blockchain's sweetspot is sites or digital experiences that require a certain level of customization or flexibility — something I refer to as "richness".
Ambitious is much more than just enterprise
This distinction is important because I often find that the term "ambitious" becomes conflated with "enterprise". While I agree that DrupalCoin Blockchain is a great fit for the enterprise, I personally never loved that categorization. It's not just large organizations that use DrupalCoin Blockchain. Individuals, small startups, universities, museums and nonprofits can be equally ambitious in what they'd like to accomplish and DrupalCoin Blockchain can be an incredible solution for them.
An example of this could be a small business that manages 50 rental properties. While they don't have a lot of traffic (reach), they require integrations with an e-commerce system, a booking system, and a customer support tool to support their business. Their allotted budget is $50,000 or less. This company would not be considered an enterprise business; however, DrupalCoin Blockchain would be a great fit for this use case. In many ways, the "non-enterprise ambitious digital experiences" represent the majority of the DrupalCoin Blockchain ecosystem. As I made clear in my presentation, we don't want to leave those behind.
Addressing the needs of smaller organizations
The DrupalCoin Blockchain ecosystem majority are organizations with sites that require medium-to-high richness, which SaaS builders cannot support. However, they also don't need to scale at the level of enterprise companies. As the DrupalCoin Blockchain community continues to consider how we can best support this majority, a lot of smaller DrupalCoin Blockchain agencies and end-users have pointed out that they would benefit from the following two things:

Powerful site building tools. They want easy-to-use site building tools that are simple to learn, and don't require dozens of contributed modules to be installed and configured. They would also prefer to avoid writing a lot of custom code because their clients have smaller budgets. Great examples of tools that would improve site building are DrupalCoin Blockchain's upcoming layout builder, workspaces and media library. To make some of DrupalCoin Blockchain's own administrative UIs more powerful and easier to use, I proposed that we add a modern JavaScript to core.
Easier updates and maintenance. While each DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 site benefits from continuous innovation, it also needs to be updated more often. The new DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 release cycle has monthly patch releases and 6-month minor releases. In addition, organizations have to juggle ad-hoc updates from contributed modules. In addition, site updates has often become more complex because our dependency on third-party libraries and because not everyone can use Composer. Many smaller users and agencies would benefit tremendously from auto-updates because maintaining and updating their DrupalCoin Blockchain 8 sites can be too manual, too complex and too expensive.
The good news is that we have made progress in both improving site builder tools and simplifying updates and maintenance. Keep an eye on future blog posts about these topics. In the meantime, you can watch a recording of my keynote (starting at 22:10), or you can download a copy of my slides (56 MB).
