About a month ago we released a new series called What's New In Drupal 8, which gives an overview of the different things that have changed in the upcoming version of Drupal. We've added a "Notify me" button to these particular lessons so members can get added to a notification list for that topic.

Our entire team will be at DrupalCon Los Angeles in just a few weeks. We'd love to chat with you, so here is where you'll be able to find us.

This week we're pleased to add another series that addresses multiple sites in a different way from the core multisite feature, with the Introduction to Domain Access for Drupal 7 series. This series covers the basics of working with Domain Access to manage multiple domain names all on one Drupal instance—only one code base and one database.

Let’s take a brief look at how translation contributions work in Drupal. This written tutorial is based on the free video, Translation in Drupal.

Design work is a lot of show-and-tell. It can be challenging to effectively communicate and collaborate on a distributed team. Join hostess Amber Matz, Lullabot Creative Director Jared Ponchot, Lullabot UX Designer Jen Witkowski, and Justin Harrell, Interactive Designer for Drupalize.Me, as they talk about the unique challenges, processes, and tools they use as part of a distributed team.

This week, we're wrapping up our series, Introduction to Object-oriented PHP, in partnership with KnpUniversity, with tutorials on access control for properties, type hinting, and constructors in PHP.

Here's an example of an assumption; The sun will rise tomorrow. An assumption is something that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof. This kind of thinking, while convenient, is prone to concealing facts, and troublesome when debugging code. This article defines what an assumption is, and provides some techniques for helping to eliminate them during debugging.

While a lot of our days are focused on Drupal, as web developers there are other pieces of tech that we need to understand and use on a regular basis. One example is Apache web server. This is the most popular web server on the web and likely the one your site uses. While you don't need to be a system administrator to use Drupal, you do need to understand some basics of Apache when working with domain names, especially if you're managing multiple domain names on one web server.

At the beginning of this month, we introduced a new feature on the site: self-serve group memberships! In the olden days, when a group wanted to purchase a membership, we asked that they email us. We then generated an invoice and emailed it back. No longer! Now, groups can purchase 5-seat memberships directly from our site—no emailing or invoicing required. Not only is the signup process now very straightforward, but you can purchase a group membership on a monthly basis in addition to the annual option.

This week's podcast, Episode 61: Mental Health and Open Source, dives into the private topic of our mental health. A few Lullabots are joined by Mike Bell, who recently gave a presentation on this topic, sharing his own personal journey. We discuss the pressures and effects we've all experienced in different ways, as well as the ways we've worked to manage our own mental health, and ways the Drupal and open source communities can help.
