After a couple of sprints and few weeks doing client work, I am back on contribute mode, and I am using my time to make sure the Drupal Console is in sync with the latest Drupal 8 Beta 4 release.
Little more than a month since my last blog post, where I do announced The Drupal 8 Console will sync Drupal 8 Beta releases and we are still in in sync with Beta 2 even when Drupal is Beta 03, but we have been working the project and I will share what is new:
Thanks to my current employer Blink Reaction sponsoring some of my working hours, I will be able to spend more time as co-maintainer of the Drupal 8 Console project by the way David Flores (@dmouse) is the other co-maintainer of the project.
What is the Drupal 8 Console
The Drupal 8 Console it is an effort to bring the The Console Component to Drupal 8 as you can see on the project description .
Looking at the DrupalCon Latinamerica 2015 web site. I just find out no training day offered for the event which somehow is kinda disappointing, since even the local-community events have been offering a full free training day during several DrupalCamps.
Last Friday of August I presented a session on the monthly meetup of my local user group Mexicali Open Source
The session name was "ORM won't kill any kittens". It was a few recomentations about how to use an ORM Doctrine in this particular case, since the demo was coded on Symfony2.
This was the topic list:
I did have a chance to speak at Twin Cities Drupal Camp last week, the session name was "The Symfony Way".
This session was a walk through at some concepts an components behind Symfony 2, but also I explained (at least i tried to) how to using them while working with Symfony, Silex & Drupal 8.
One of the mentioned topics was 'Dependency Injection' not sure why but seems for some reason as one of these concepts developers not related to OO are most scared of.
In order to explain this software design pattern I did using the following image:
Based on requirements of a couple projects that I am currently working on, I was in the need to create a content entity type in Drupal 8, and as usual I decided to go ahead and do what every developer does, RTFM and follow the steps as shown on the official documentation.
I want to share a series of blog posts I wrote on the Blink Reaction site, on these articles I shared some ideas about what's comming on Drupal 8, Symfony components and other concepts related to modern PHP development that are going to be part of "The New Drupal Way".
The following code here was an exercise I was working on, my goal was to load a template and a CSS asset file from a Controller in Drupal 8.
As you can see here, in my first iteration I was over engineering the solution as I explain on the next points.
