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frustrating things about technical documentation and tutorials is when you find what you need, only to learn that it is out of date after spending a lot of time with it.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.

We've partnered up with several July events as sponsors and to give away free Drupalize.Me memberships. Here is a list of upcoming events that we're excited to be involved with.

We've been so busy adding and updating our content that we haven't had a chance to write about what we've done lately -- until now! Here's what we've been working on these past few months.

Amber Matz and I had the awesome opportunity to be part of the programming team for DrupalCon Baltimore. Both of us served as local track chairs. Amber worked on the Horizons track, and I worked on the Being Human track. We thought it would be fun to share some of our experience as track chairs helping with session selection.

If you’re looking for a great experience learning Drupal this month, there are many varied opportunities at Drupal camps. It takes a lot of volunteer hours to run them, and we’re grateful to everyone who contributes. We’ve partnered with a few camps this month as sponsors, and have contributed some coupons and memberships. We’re proud to be involved with these June events.
