We are pleased to say that we have updated and added to the guides so that we now have a complete set of exam guides for Drupal 8 and 7.

We're very excited about this new series for Web Services in Drupal 8. It has been our most-requested topic and we got to work with Mateu Aguiló Bosch to write it. If you have been looking to work on a decoupled Drupal project, or just need to dive into web service APIs, this series will teach you the tools you need and how to create a solid API for your needs.

We're thankful to the volunteers around the world who support the community by running camps. We've partnered up with several of them as sponsors and to give away free Drupalize.Me memberships. Get yourself to one of these events and you can win a free month of Drupalize.Me! Here is a list of upcoming events where you can win a free membership in the next 2 months.

If you've been following along with the Drupal core development cycle you might already know that new minor versions of Drupal 8 are released roughly every 6 months. We're happy to celebrate the release of Drupal 8.4 yesterday! Let's take a look at a few of the new features that have been added to this release.

Just two weeks ago we launched our new format for guides, along with a landing page that presents our guides and topics on one page. This week we're pleased to add 2 more new guides to the list: Introduction to Drupal and Learn Drupal 8. Both of these guides provide overviews that answer common questions and point you in the right direction to get started with Drupal.

Today the release candidate (rc) for Drupal 8.4 came out. This is the final review stage for the next version and a good opportunity to see what changes are coming when the new release goes public in fewer than 4 weeks, on October 4th. Here is a quick overview of some of the more interesting changes:

It's been a great couple of months producing and refining content for the site. Here's what we've been working during July and August, 2017.

We've been hard at work to provide more information in a more organized way over the last couple of months. This week we finally get to share it with you. We're proud to show you our new main content landing page, which lists the content people ask about the most; topical pages that give context and resources for different areas of Drupal, and guides to walk you through a particular set of learning materials in pursuit of learning a Drupal skill set.

Last week DrupalEasy announced our new partnership with them and we couldn't be happier. We have known Gwendolyn and Mike Anello for many years through the Drupal community. DrupalEasy has long lived the spirit of open source and giving back, along with a great friendly work ethic, and we're excited to build a more formal partnership with them going forward.

Today, we're happy to announce a new free series about Drupal Coding Standards that has been made possible by our friends at Chromatic. The Drupal community has defined a set of coding standards and best practices that you should adhere to whenever you're writing code for Drupal.

One of the most frustrating things about technical documentation and tutorials is when you find what you need, only to learn that it is out of date after spending a lot of time with it. We are dedicated to keeping all of Drupal 8 content up to date with the latest version of core, but until last week we didn’t have an easy way for you to double-check that yourself. We’ve now added some relevant indicators to our tutorials.

Check out the events that we're sponsoring in August, where you can win a free Drupalize.Me membership.
