When D8Rules project waiting in a Funding phase had just seven days left to be successfully funded, success didn’t seem likely. The project had raised just over 40% of its funding goal so far. The days shortened; the pressure rose. Happiness exploded exactly two days before the finish line thanks to the rescuing amount which came just in time.
The Biggest Nest of Funders So Far
We know that the Drupal Community is generous in donating money. They confirmed it again in the case of the ‘D8Rules - Support the Rules module for Drupal 8’ project. Together, 138 backers funded 106% of its funding goal. It equated to 15.973 dollars. With this number, D8Rules is, for the moment, the biggest project successfully funded onDrupalfund.us.
Public crowdfunding for D8Rules on Drupalfund started on May 13th. In one day, funders covered 8% of the funding goal already—quite good for a start. During the first two weeks the donating line grew and then it became static. The days were flowing away and more than a half of the final amount was still missing. What happened next?!

We in the Drupal community probably know something about Drupal 8 – even if it's just that we're aware it's coming!
But how do you clearly and simply highlight the benefits of Drupal 8 to a non-developer audience, or those beyond our community?
How can you then potentially create a non-dev community of Drupal 8 advocates and share good practice?Introducing Drupal 8 personas What is a persona?
A persona is a ‘person' that represents a specific group of users.
Organisations and companies can use intel from personas to create, for example, a piece or pieces of content that will:
- Highlight expectations and use of your site for your end user
- Help drive the benefits in a way that will be immediately understood by the audience
Deeson Online have been working of a series of personas to help clearly articulate the benefits of Drupal 8.How did we create Drupal 8 personas?
Using interviews with a range of Drupal and non-Drupal users, we got to grips with all the pain points for a range of potential Drupal 8 users. Using Dries Buytaert’s personas from his DrupalCon Prague Keynote speech as a starting point, we then focused on:
We then carried out a series of interviews via Skype and Google Hangouts asking people from across the globe from each of these user groups over 30 questions.
These questions ranged from "How many people work in the company?" to "From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, what does a day in your working life look like?"What did we do with the answers?
We then analysed all the responses, reducing them down to one 'persona' per user group, ensuring that we captured the persona needs and pain, then matching them against how Drupal 8 will help.The result
A range of easy to consume dowloadable infographic persona fact sheets, that established and potential users can read and share.
The results so far have been really positive. The infographic personas are proving especially useful for those within our community to have something to refer to when talking not just about the power and benefits Drupal 8, but Drupal itself.So learn more about Drupal 8, download the persona infographics and share the Drupal love!

What is the best way to learn programming for beginners? I've spent a lot of time over the past 12 months thinking about this question, and as our firm has grown steadily from 19 to 39 people, I've reflected on what makes the difference between the people who walk in the door and knock things out of the park and those who struggle. Since my blog post on How to Become a Web Developer I have a number of people who regularly ask me this very question, I'd like to share my thoughts and observations.
Now that we have a new release cycle, we have the possibility of new features in minor releases, i.e. although we are in feature freeze for 8.0, that doesn't mean we can't add new features until 9.0. Provided they are backwards-compatible, we can add new features in 8.1 and 8.2.
After recently taking over maintainer-ship of the core contact module, @tim-e and I, in consultation with @andypost and @berdir have formulated a draft roadmap for the features we'd like to see in contact module in the future.
We're publishing it here for wider community-input.
To provide the 80% use-case of webform. i.e. allowing creation and submission of feedback forms from site-users; and providing editing, listing and administration of submitted form values.
Webform contains lots of features, we're only after expanding contact module slightly to add storage and administration and in the process meet the basic use-case of webform in core.
Note that some of these items are features and can be developed in contrib during 8.0 if required with the view to include in point releases eg 8.1, 8.2.
- Open issues
Key features/issues on roadmap
- Add (pluggable) storage of messages https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560 - we already have a test implementation of this (in a test module) in core, so it is already technically possible.
- Add views integration https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560
- Add admin listing of submissions w/ bulk actions to delete https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560
- Add ability to edit submissions
- Support for file-fields attached to emails - requires formatter for file-field.
- Ability to edit format of messages bodies including tokens
- Move email logic out of form submit handler to allow submission of messages via REST api that also send email
- Move email logic into own service and add events for other modules to interact
- Make email sending optional at category (form) level
- Path integration to allow simple alias management of contact categories
- Per contact-category permissions to allow granular access
- Provide a menu-link per category in a custom menu - auto builds menu of contact category links leveraging the menu link API to solve the category selector regression.
- Provide a configurable and themable block of selected contact forms. Probably needs views to query contact categories. https://www.drupal.org/node/1997692 and https://www.drupal.org/node/599770
- Move https://www.drupal.org/node/1856560 to a meta and add sub-issues for 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3
- Create issues for 2.4 through 2.11

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new beginning which weaves more threads on to it like spider as it goes on. Acquia internship came as this new beginning to me that I always thought of and dreamt of. I admired startups with challenging ideas and read more and more about the entrepreneurs, about their success stories and the way they reached to where they are now and still envisioning in future. I loved to read and analyze what challenges these young entrepreneurs faced and how they overcome it.
