Drupal Association blog: Global Training Days events from June 2019

Planet Drupal - 11 July 2019 - 10:43am

Drupal creates growth of local communities when training events inspire new Drupalers to grow their skills and get involved in the project. This June, events occurred in Sydney, Brisbane, Tokyo, New York City, Nuevo León, and online. Here's the summary from a few of the host trainers:

Kazu Hodota (kazu.hodota), in Tokyo:

"We had Drupal Global Training Day Tokyo on June 29, 2019 and this is a short report. 10 people registered, and 8 people with 1 Skype user joined GTD Tokyo. One person is a Drupal end user, seven are Web business SI, which included three first time Drupalers. Two were evaluating Drupal API functions, for example importing JSON data to Drupal content types, IoT system of digital signage applications with JavaScript Server side applications with Drupal.

I think API application user will be growing near future!"

Angel GHR (angel.garza), in Monterrey:

"The Drupal Global Training Days event in Monterrey, Mexico was hosted inside UANL FIME for two days. On June 28, we had conferences starting with Drupal Introduction and all the way to Reacting Drupal, receiving a little over 30 people in the conference and 15 presenters.

On June 29, we had two concurrent workshops, the basic one where we presented Drupal from the basic installation, configuration and walkthrough the platform, this workshop had 7 people in it and 6 presenters and the advanced one where we presented Progressively Decoupled Drupal 8 with React and Gatsby and had 6 people in the workshop and 6 presenters.We got a really positive feedback by both the participants and the school in which we hosted the event, getting people interested in future events and open to learn more about Drupal."

David Needham (davidneedham), online training for Pantheon:

"We had a great turnout at the Getting Started with Drupal 8 workshop Pantheon ran on June 28th of Global Training Day with around 200 students attending at once. We recorded the training last time we ran it and published it (feel free to run through it yourself or pass it along to others). This is material that we regularly run in-person at camps and online for GTD. Want to run it at your next event in your own community? Reach out to me directly for more information or fill out the form at https://pantheon.io/trainers."

Interested in helping in the Global Training Days initiative?

We are looking for more volunteers across the Drupal community to organize more GTD events and more local training events. Do reach out to the GTD group / Slack and join a community of passionate training organizers across the world. You would find resources and other people who can help you with organizing your training event. You can also reach out to Anoop John (anoopjohn) if you have questions.

To get involved in Global Training Days, visit the group's event list and add your event.

Check Out and Vote In The 2019 ENnies!

Gnome Stew - 11 July 2019 - 10:19am

Head Gnome John Arcadian here with some GS news! The 2019 ENnies voting is live and ready for your eager vote. We’ve got some personal selections and GS affiliated projects we want to encourage you to vote for.

Wait, where’s Gnome Stew? Aren’t you usually in the running?

Yes, Gnome Stew has submitted to the ENnies and won silver or gold for MANY years. We decided not to submit for consideration this year. This year the ENnies changed a few things and merged a few categories. There is no longer a Blog specific category. We could have submitted for Best Online Content, but we’ve had more than a few years to build up an audience and a name. This, alongside the great content and great voices we try to give a platform to, has helped us do very well in the ENnies. Every year  we always consider whether we should step into the field or not since we’ve had a few wins under our belt. With the removal of a blog specific category, we decided this was the year we were going to leave it to others and not nominate ourselves. That being said, we’ve got a few Gnome Affiliated projects and some very good projects out there that we would encourage you to look at. Remember, the ENnies are one person one vote and has a tiered voting system so mark your favorite with 1, second favorite with 2, etc.

Gnome Affiliated Projects

Podcasts – There are two great podcasts with Gnomes on them.

  • She’s A Super Geek with Senda is a podcast featuring female GMs and something you should definitely vote for.
  • Asians Represent! has newer gnome Daniel Kwan and is also something you should vote for.
Other Things We’d Encourage You To Look at
  • Best Online Content – Molten Sulfur Blog by Tristan Zimmerman is a great RPG blog with a focus on bringing in historical emphasis to your games.
  • Best Monster/Adversary – While there is a part of us that loathes suggesting something attached to Kobolds, the Creature Codex is a great supplement for 5e games.
  • Best Layout and Design – Bluebeard’s Bride: Book of Rooms has a fantastic layout and is IGDN affiliated, and many gnomes are IGDN members.
  • Best Electronic Book – Uncaged Volume 1 is a phenomenal resource in every way and well deserving of a vote.
    Best Free Game – Die Laughing, Sliced up is another IGDN product and a very funny one that is fun to play.
  • Best Game – There are many incredible contenders in Best Game. Companions’ Tale and Dialect are two I’ve (John) had wonderful experiences with and are both worthy of your vote.

There are a ton of great entries in the ENnies this year and we applaud the ENnies for the changes they have made to make the event and competition better. Go vote in the ENnies and give your support to some incredible gaming.

Do you ever run into an issue of creating new paragraph type with the same fields only because it looks a bit different?
This tiny module is meant to easily reuse the same paragraph types with different view mode (display mode).
With this module, you can choose which view modes should be available during editing of the content by using the widget settings for a particular type of paragraph.
You can also dynamically choose in which display mode you want to render this specific paragraph when adding the content.

Texas Creative: New Drupal Module: Existing Values Autocomplete Widget

Planet Drupal - 11 July 2019 - 7:44am

Providing the content creator a field with a list of values to choose from is a common requirement when building a Drupal site. It’s also something that can be achieved in a variety of ways, each having pros and cons to the approach. Texas Creative’s web team has developed a module that we believe fills a missing gap in this type of field called Existing Values Autocomplete Widget.

In the following analysis, we will discuss each possible approach, the use case for it, along with an example. The final approach includes using our new module.
