What can you build with Loco?
We get asked that a lot. Because Loco is a new product, a lot of people have never used it before. Because Low-Code is a new software segment, many people don't know what these solutions can do for them. Today, we will attempt to break it down in a fairly straightforward set of examples.
It's the Data, Stupid
Application DevelopmentThis is the process of developing custom software applications on a computer system that will fulfill the specific needs of an individual or more typically, an organization. Application development usually involves a toolset that will allow trained practitioners to craft software modules that will be strung together in an application framework. Throughout our pr
You may have heard of the recently reported issues related to performance enhancing routines built into most modern computer processors. These two vulnerabilities identified by researchers have been dubbed Meltdown and Spectre.
These issues expose a means in nearly all modern processors for a would-be attacker to obtain data once thought to be immune from observation or hijacking. Hardware and software manufacturers have worked to provide protective counter measures to prevent these vulnerabilities from being exploited.
Sometimes we need to run operations that will take a long time. We need to make sure the request doesn’t time out and it would be nice to let the user see that progress is being made. Drupal uses batch processing to do things like rebuilding content access permissions. Let’s dig in and see how we can create a custom batch process of our own. This is a walkthrough on batch processing for Drupal 8. I'm using Drupal 8.4, but this should apply to Drupal 8.2 and up.
The first step is creating a new module. We’ll call ours example_batch.
Breakthrough has a new CTO! This Summer, Gus Koumarales accepted the position to step up and lead the Breakthrough team by guiding us in the next generation of technological advances that we will be navigating over the coming years. Gus has been a superior technology leader on a variety of projects, and has been instrumental in forming and shaping the development culture at Breakthrough over the past three years.
We sat down with Gus for some Q&A to understand what he sees as the future of technology at BT:
In this series we will build a browser-based ToDo List application using Vue.js and Bulma. We will learn how to create a new Vue project, how to add dependencies to the project, how to use Vue's powerful reactitivy, and how to wrap everything around a responsive layout with Bulma.
This tutorial will start with some of the very basic Vue features, with the goal of progressively enhancing our app as we go along.
Drupal 8 is new and really different from Drupal 7. The documentation on drupal.org isn’t complete or thorough yet, and most of the blog posts I’ve come across are from 2014 or 2015 and are obsolete.
I’m going to give some tasks and examples the way we’d do them in Drupal 7 and then how we do them in Drupal 8. We’ll assume you already have a Drupal 8 install up and running - that is pretty well documented and easy. I’m using the Standard install profile.
