Drupal Association blog: Colombia joins the growing community of local Drupal associations

Planet Drupal - 8 October 2019 - 7:17am

The Drupal project is global. There are people using, implementing, and contributing to the Drupal project in nearly every country of the world.

Being able to encourage and support our global community to promote and grow the project must also be a global operation, and we are delighted to read that the Drupal Association of Colombia (ADC) has now been officially formed.

This local association will help to promote and stimulate the use of Drupal in Colombia and act as a focus to propel the Colombia community’s efforts and initiatives in accordance with the Drupal values and principles.

The founding members of the local association are partners and executives of two experienced Drupal Agencies in Colombia: Jairo Pinzón, Aldibier Morales, and William Vera from Seed EM and Jorge Alexander Salcedo and Carolina Poveda from Bits Americas; a senior Drupal developer and very active community member, Iván Chaquea; a marketer and very active Drupal adopter Jonathan Osorio from Grupo Éxito; and from the academic side, Socrates Rojas, dean of the faculty of computer science from the Instituto Técnico Central of Bogota, a prestigious public technical school.

Membership is now open to organizations and individuals who wish to join the Drupal Association of Colombia and who share the same interest. By joining, members will have access to all the local activities, training, official Drupal events, and the opportunity to contribute in a more cohesive way. More information will soon be available at www.asociaciondrupal.org​.

The ADC is now preparing for its first official event — Drupal Camp Medellin on June 5-6, 2020.

Please join us in congratulating all involved and wishing them a successful future!

Consensus Enterprises: Drupal 8 hook_update() Tricks

Planet Drupal - 8 October 2019 - 4:00am
In Drupal 7, hook_update()/hook_install() were well-established mechanisms for manipulating the database when installing a new site or updating an existing one. Most of these routines ended up directly running SQL against the database, where all kinds of state, configuration, and content data lived. This worked reasonably well if you were careful and had a good knowledge of how the database schema fit together, but things tended to get complicated.

PreviousNext: Announcing Skpr: Control on Command

Planet Drupal - 7 October 2019 - 6:03pm

Skpr - pronounced Skipper - is a cloud hosting platform specifically designed to maximise the productivity of development teams by giving them full control right from the command line.

by Nick Schuch / 8 October 2019

During our consulting engagements with large organisations, we recognised a clear trend; they were moving away from narrow, single-site hosting services and building bespoke platforms on top of Kubernetes to support their multi-site, multi-technology initiatives.

Back in 2016 we had this exact need for hosting our entire portfolio of sites. Throughout this journey we found that providing developers with a simple Command Line Interface (CLI), has led to huge improvements in our team's efficiency and the overall quality of our products.

So, today we’re announcing the public launch of our hosting platform, Skpr. The platform for teams who want a simple command line tool, backed by a range of industry-leading services and supported by our own team of experts.

Why Skpr is different

Many hosting platforms provide a web interface where deployments can be dragged-and-dropped between environments.

While these solutions are more effective for non-developers, they fall short in integration and extendability within the workflow of the developers actually doing the job. Having a Command Line Interface (CLI) means that not only do we provide the same level of control, we provide the flexibility to extend those workflows. 

  • Scripts - Having a CLI means that Skpr can integrate into existing automation, along with CI tools such as CircleCI.
  • Documentation - Complex tasks carried out via a GUI are very difficult to document. CLIs mean you spend less time describing a user interface and more time documenting the actual process.
Control on Command

With a few commands, developers have the control to package, deploy, configure and monitor their services right from the command line.

And while we want to provide a platform that's powerful, reliable and secure, we're passionate about making it easy-to-use as well.

Palantir: HonorHealth

Planet Drupal - 7 October 2019 - 5:24pm
honorhealth.com Making healthcare simple and personal with a consumer-centric approach On Highlights
  • Point One
  • Point Two
  • Point Three

HonorHealth is well-known as a community health system drawing from a strong legacy of care for those in their community for more than 100 years in Phoenix, AZ. HonorHealth provides critical, life-saving services; they focus their energy on providing first-in-class medical services, training, and humanitarian assistance. HonorHealth needed a content management platform to help them communicate not only their services, but also their innovations in treatments, technology, and clinical research in a way that is comprehensible and effective for their audiences.

The Challenge

The previous honorhealth.com was a Drupal 7 site that offered inconsistent search interfaces, a splintered “make an appointment” experience, and an overall menu and content structure that was based on internal organizational needs. With a renewed focus on their customers, HonorHealth wanted to build a new website that would improve the crucial “find care” experience for their users.

More specifically, they wanted to make it seamless for patients to:

  • Find and receive the right care
  • Get access to their health information
  • Manage their care easily
  • Maintain their health or cope with a condition

HonorHealth engaged Palantir.net to create an easy-to-administer, modernized Drupal 8 platform. The new consumer-centric honorhealth.com:

  • Builds and fosters trust through design and good usability
  • Makes it easy for users to find care and locations
  • Features a site structure driven by actual user priorities
  • Is WCAG 2.0 AA compliant
How We Did It

With an eye on the future, Palantir focused work on creating a platform that will be easily extendable as HonorHealth expands the services they provide to their community over time. Palantir knew it was essential to create a strong platform in order to enable HonorHealth to integrate more technologies in the future as part of their continuum of care.

Collaborative Discovery Phase

The project began with an in-person workshop that joined together the Palantir team with a large group of client stakeholders (15+), each with varied levels of project context, technical knowledge, and ongoing involvement in the overall project. As Palantir interviewed the organizational stakeholders, it became clear that putting patients and prospective patients first and foremost was going to be critical to the success of the project. Palantir worked with their partners at HonorHealth to make sure the team was answering every challenge through the lens of “does this first serve patients and prospective patients?”

Inception focused heavily on user testing of HonorHealth’s existing personas, which were validated through abbreviated top task research in order to get data on the specific priorities of the primary audiences. The results of this work were incorporated into the page designs and informed the Information Architecture (IA) hypothesis, which was tested further using a tree test. The tree test helped us determine which tasks users could easily complete on the site and which tasks were especially difficult to complete.

Defining Features

Palantir used a series of “sketch sessions”–workshops where the team and client stakeholders collaboratively define key user flows and experiences. The outcome is low-fidelity, annotated wireframes that can initiate conversations around the build and move the project forward.

Both the UX and development team at Palantir participated in these sessions, which enabled them to overlap design work with development work much longer, creating a more integrated approach to developing the HonorHealth site. This innovative approach enabled Palantir to show the site–with real content–in it much sooner than traditionally possible, which meant HonorHealth could provide incremental feedback on the site. This process of migrating data early and evolving it in-place also made it easier to showcase data integrations as they lived alongside CMS-controlled content.

Building a Valuable IA

Using data from the top tasks research, Palantir developed a framework of “most valuable experiences” for HonorHealth’s audiences. The site’s information architecture and hierarchy, calls-to-action, navigation, and layout are all anchored around these experiences – always surfacing the information users need in the most contextually relevant places and laying the groundwork for personalization opportunities in the future.

The most notable highlights of the new site include:

  • A consolidated appointment flow (universal button, main landing page) that helps users decide how to proceed
  • A straightforward, consistent search experience for finding doctors, locations, clinical trials, articles and events
Flexible Components

With the previous site, content design elements were created mostly inline on individual pages by a web manager with HTML knowledge. This limited who on the team could make changes to the site and slowed down the process of updating the site with critical content. With the new honorhealth.com, the editorial team has a set of dynamic, flexible, field-based content components that enables content editors to craft compelling narrative content pages, without needing to know HTML.

Modern Design

The new honorhealth.com cleverly incorporates their existing brand elements while modernizing the design. Simple and straightforward, the updated design is easy to use and connects and resonates with key audiences.

Integrating With Key Systems

One of the overall goals when embarking on this redesign was to create an experience that mimicked the streamlined usability of an ecommerce site. HonorHealth wanted to create a place where patients could easily make choices about their care and schedule appointments with minimal effort. In order to provide this experience, it was imperative that the new platform could play well with HonorHealth’s external services and created a firm foundation to integrate more self-service tools in the future.

In particular, Palantir integrated with three services as part of the build: SymphonyRM, Docscores, and Clockwise.

  • SymphonyRM offers a rich set of data served by a dynamic API. HonorHealth leverages SymphonyRM’s Provider Operations services to hold its practice location and physician data. Palantir worked closely with Symphony to help define the data structure. Through this work, HonorHealth was able to reduce the number of steps and people required to maintain their provider and location data. By leveraging the strategy work done and the technical consultation of Palantir’s Technical Architecture Owner, HonorHealth was able to keep focused on the most valuable content to their users throughout all of their integrated systems.
  • Docscores provides a platform for gathering high-quality ratings and review data on healthcare practitioners and locations. Palantir integrated this data directly with the physician and location data provided from SymphonyRM to create a research and discovery tool for HonorHealth users. On the new HonorHealth website, users can find physicians near a specific location and read about other patients’ experiences with them.
  • Clockwise provides real-time wait estimates for people looking for Urgent Care services in their area. Each of these individual “under the hood” integrations don’t represent a significant shift for website users, but when all of these changes are coupled with the intense focus on putting the user experience of the site first, the result speaks for itself: a beautiful website that works well and empowers people to engage in their ongoing healthcare in meaningful ways.

Each of these individual “under the hood” integrations don’t represent a significant shift for website users, but when all of these changes are coupled with the intense focus on putting the user experience of the site first, the result speaks for itself: a beautiful website that works well and empowers people to engage in their ongoing healthcare in meaningful ways.

At risk of sounding trite and cliche, the term ‘best in class’ legitimately does apply.

Key Results

Each and every page of the new Drupal 8 site fits neatly in a hierarchy of user-centric top-tasks. Each page is outcome- or action-oriented and centers on the question: “What are our users trying to accomplish when they come to this page?” The new site surfaces valuable, decision-influencing information like Emergency Department wait times and easy appointment request forms in key places to help users get the services they need and want, quickly and efficiently.

The new HonorHealth site has taken a strong step forward in effectiveness for not only patients, but the internal team as well. By taking a strategic approach to how their data is managed across all of their vendors and integrations, Palantir was able to find efficiencies and make that process easier, so that HonorHealth can focus on what they do best – providing top-notch care to the communities that they serve.

Jacob Rockowitz: Acquia, Automattic, and Microsoft should lobby governments to fix accessibility issues in Open Source

Planet Drupal - 7 October 2019 - 10:53am

Recently, I nudged governments to get more involved in fixing accessibility issues in Open Source projects. Getting governments to do anything can feel like a monumental challenge. Maybe we need to build better alliances and then collectively lobby the governments to change how they approach Open Source.

Approach

Dries Buytaert, the founder of Drupal, recently published a blog post titled, "Balancing Makers and Takers to sustain and scale Open Source," and while reading it I wondered, “Are we approaching the problem of sustainability too much as developers? Should we step back and look at the challenge of sustainability from a business and political perspective?”

Is changing an Open Source project's license going to change how other organizations contribute to Open Source? Changing the licensing is a different approach. The recent "Open-source licensing war" felt like a few individual companies are trying to make a significant shift in Open Source, however lacking a unified front. If Open Source companies are going to take on Amazon, they are going to have to do it together by building alliances.

Alliances

The definition of alliance sounds very much like what happens in Open Source communities.

Political alliances (a.k.a. parties) are what powers most governments. The scale of some open source projects has required better governance. In Dries' blog post, he spends time exploring how organizations use Open Source (a.k.a. Takers) without helping to build the software or community (a.k.a. Makers). His post ends with three valuable suggestions that are focused on appealing to organizations and rethinking how the Open Source...Read More
