Getting off the island

As a back-end developer, one of the surprising and fun things about this Drupalcon is how much I have learned about front-end and theming in Drupal. This has been my way of "getting off the island" and learning about things a little outside my normal comfort-zone.

Arriving in Dublin

Drupalcon Dublin is starting this week. Particularly exciting one for me since
I went to university here about a million years ago (a.k.a. the early nineties).

This was another era entirely, before the internet. I think the arrival of the
internet changed Ireland even more than most other countries. It is mainly
rural, and stuck on the western edge of Europe on the Atlantic. "Surrounded by
water" as the song says. The water comes down from above as well. Very, very
frequently.

Drupal Business and Community Days 2016 - Our Location

Body: 

We at erdfisch are very excited to announce that the Drupal Business and Community Days will take place in Heidelberg, Germany from 8-10 April 2016.

This is the first in a series of blog postings explaining what we want to achieve with this event. I'll start with our location.

New module: Image widget default image

Single image: 
Body: 

As part of a client project we recently had the requirement of displaying an image field's default image in the node add form, before the user had uploaded a picture. This seemed simple enough to implement but thinking about it I realized this was quite a generic feature request and that such a module might prove useful for others. Rather by accident I even noticed that Drupal.org itself employs the same feature on user profile pages.

A composer based workflow for Drupal 8

Body: 

Every developer had a fight once with dependency management of big Drupal projects, which use a couple of modules and maybe one theme with base themes etc.
At the same time there are maybe patches to Drupal core itself, modules are developed internally on some GIT server etc.. It's a pain in the ass to get the code from various places and keep it up to date.

In the node.js world, for example, people use a tool called npm
which fetches all the versions from various sources in a simple and reproducable way.

As someone working on some drupal site you often want to understand what happens on a specific site. This blog post will describe a tool which helps to understand the site faster and easier.

One example you wanna see are the executed database queries. In Drupal 7 we had the wonderful Devel module which showed a list of executed database queries below the page but there are way more information you might want to know:

For sure, there are plenty enviroments on which Drupal can be run. But often it is not clear how to get started. Therefore I will explain a very common way to run drupal on a FreeBSD System. Most of the steps should be almost the same on a Linux system.

Explaining the new routing system in Drupal 8 (blog series)

Body: 

There has been a lot of blog posts how to use the new hook_menu/page callback equivalent in Drupal 8 (http://effulgentsia.drupalgardens.com/content/drupal-8-hello-oop-hello-… for a great reference) on that.

On the other hand these posts don't cover how the routing system actually works, so here comes a series of posts, how the routing system works in Drupal 8.

The basic part.

The really basic idea behind the symfony control flow is the following:
