Drupal 8 was many years in the making and is gaining in popularity as it matures. One of the aspects of Drupal 8 development that keeps many people from jumping in is that there are still a fair number of contributed projects (modules and themes) that have not been upgraded yet. To recognize the people who do the hard work of creating and maintaining contributed projects, and to encourage more people to upgrade projects to Drupal 8, we will give free Drupalize.Me memberships to Drupal.org project maintainers and the folks listed in Drupal 8...

This time of year you can find Drupal events happening all over the world. While everyone knows about the big DrupalCon in Baltimore that just happened last week, there are a ton of great camps taking place as well. We're thankful to the volunteers 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.

This week we're adding 10 more tutorials to our Drupal 8 Module Development Guide which dive into the Render API, an essential part of every module developer's toolkit.

March was a busy month for us as we continue to work on producing the best Drupal 8 tutorials. We released new tutorials for developers of modules and themes alike.

Last week Joe and Blake attended MidCamp 2017 in Chicago. We taught Drupal 8 theming, ate donuts, attended a bunch of sessions, and sprinted on documentation.

This week, we've added 8 new tutorials to our Drupal 8 Theming Guide on breakpoints, responsive image styles, and core themes Bartik and Stark. In these lessons you will learn about breakpoints and media queries, and how Drupal uses these concepts outside of CSS files. We'll cover breakpoint configuration files and how to create one for your theme or module. Then, we'll dive into the Responsive Image module. We'll explore responsive image style configuration, popular responsive image use cases that you can solve with responsive image styles...

We've got some new tutorials on Drupal 8 module development on the different kinds of menu links. We've also added a pair of tutorials on how to add an info file so that Drupal can recognize your module and how to define permissions for a module in Drupal 8. Our Drupal 8 Module Development Guide is ever-expanding; if you haven't checked it out lately, you might want to take a look. So far we've covered topics such as Plugins, Events, and Hooks as well as an assortment of other subjects.

Drupal Dev Days has been a recurring event since 2010, when it got started in Munich. Since then it has changed location within Europe every year. This year it is being hosted in Seville, Spain from March 21-25. Dev Days is a special event, and I have my own very fond memories from previous years.

We've added several new tutorials to our free Hands-on Exercises: Movie Project, which dive into module development. The first 16 exercises covered site building and theming. These latest additions continue to develop the same movie review site. They require you to start building your own custom modules to add a custom form for adding movie information to the site and use an external API to find and grab the information you need.
