DrupalCon Minneapolis, and the theming workshop we were planning to present, isn't going to happen this year, but instead we're going to make our Hands-On Theming course free all of next week, May 18–22, the original week of DrupalCon. This online course is based on our in-person workshops and covers the same material. If you enjoy the course, and have the means, we also ask that you donate to the Drupal Association to support their critical work and future DrupalCons.

We've added 4 video walk-through screencasts to our step-by-step "task" tutorials in our Content Moderation tutorial series. Does your organization have a publication workflow? Did you know you can set up a publication workflow that follows your online publication process? Explore this series of Content Moderation and Workflows to learn more.

Upgrade status generates a report that serves as a sort of checklist to help you determine whether or not your site is ready to be upgraded to Drupal 9. It packs a lot of useful information into a single report. It's worth taking the time to install it on a copy of your Drupal 8 site and seeing what it has to say.

Drupal check, and Drupal rector, are two useful command line tools you can use to help jump start the process of updating your Drupal 8 code to ensure it's compatible with Drupal 9. This post includes some notes about the process I went through while testing them out on some of the Drupalize.Me code base.

Through my time in the "Drupal Careers Online" course through DrupalEasy, my eyes have been opened to the wonderful world of entities, bundles, and fields. This has been such a game changer! Drupal's Entity API is one of the key elements that sets it apart from other CMS systems. Defining a site is so much easier once you understand the "building blocks" (i.e., entities, bundles, and fields), specifically "ContentEntityBase" and entities that extend it.

Hello again, friends! I hope that your Drupal learning journey is going well so far. I'm now almost midway through DrupalEasy's Drupal Career Online program and everything's been going great -- except for one recent setback. Although this setback was extremely annoying, I obtained a few takeaways in the process. I'll share what I've learned with you in the hope that you won't make the same mistake I did.

We've done a major overhaul of our React and Drupal tutorials--updating, rewriting, refactoring, and testing all tutorials in the series. It's a great time to learn how to integrate React in a Drupal site!

We've made a number of updates to both tutorials and topic pages this past quarter. The updates we made related to Drupal's 8.8.x minor release update (which introduced some big changes) and to our content archiving project, which we wrote about previously.

We're excited to announce that sandbox environments powered by Tugboat are now live and ready for Drupalize.Me members to use while following our Drupal 8 Views tutorials!

You might have noticed some changes on Drupalize.Me lately. We've just wrapped up a huge content archiving project and I'd like to share what we did and how this will help us move forward with a library of tutorials for Drupal learners that we're committed to keeping up-to-date.

The beginning of a new year always seems like a good time to take some time for reflection. While we started to do that the past couple of weeks, in an effort to wrap up some end of the year goals and finalize plans for how we wanted to start 2020, we realized that it's been quite a while since we've written about projects we're working on for the site. With Drupal 9's release planned for June of 2020 now is a great time to do this reflecting and planning work.

We're excited to publish a new set of tutorials on Drupal's Views module. This set of tutorials includes a database starting point and instructions for setting up a local development environment with DDEV so that you can follow along. The database includes an extensive set of baseball stats data so that we could demonstrate the power of Views to filter, sort, display, theme, and build customized lists in blocks, pages, API endpoints, and more.
