The lowest form of DevRel is telling.
Ya gotta start somewhere, so tell me what
Your product does. Please refrain from yelling.
Too many get stuck in the telling rut.
When you hypothesize and then concoct
a product change, ask DevRel if it'll blend.
Does the message change with the medium?
We must ask again: what are we doing?
The theme() function could return us plain lists,
Or 10 preprocess layers for viewing
More divs than should possibly exist.
Conway’s law rules everything around me:
Organizations designing systems
Replicate their communication tree.
Old insights hold true in modern prisms.
Describe software from the stakeholders’ view.
That’s what BDDers do more than they
Automate tests or fix the failing hues.
Forget red to green apples. Thrive in grey.
You need three things to earn coworkers’ trust:
Empathy, logic, Authenticity
Form a stable stool that you can adjust.
But the stool wobbles in toxicity.
I saw a similarity between these three surgical checklists for moments to catch errors and three times in my workday that I needed to check myself.
I’ve been hearing about the marvels of services for years as Drupal 8 was developed. I had never replaced a service for a real site. I’m glad it worked as well as promised.
I think the main lesson I’m learning here is that I do still need regression tests for my migrations.
Of the three, the database is easiest element to mess up and the hardest to fix after a mistaken change.
So it’s a typical side project. Some parts are handled with great care. Some are sloppy and out of date.
In September 2015 I was very excited to join Pantheon.
“Is the job of a Drupal theme to look like a design or to be the design?”
I parsed over three years of my Google Voice data to look for exclamation points in my sent messages.
Heavy use of the “extends” concept in Twig will start when developers start building Drupal 8 sites and adding site-specific themes.
Github can help rid us of the most annoying part of the web:
Give it a context
And some configuration.
Get back TRUE or FALSE.
Managing content with git will produce other unexpected modes of collaborating and I’m exciting to have a blog that can be a part of this shift.
