In August, 5 months ago, I compiled a list of the top 40 UK Drupal companies for contribution in this Medium article. Since then many things have changed, and I was intrigued to see what differences there were to companies in the ranking.

I’ve met developers that are using Drupal 8 but not using Configuration Management as they’re not familiar with it (or even scared it’s too complicated). Instead they move databases around, constantly exporting, importing and sending to eachother. This takes a lot of time, is error prone unless you take lots of care to and means developers are waiting for eachother to finish before they can start working with configuration.

I was recently using Drupal 8’s awesome Configuration Management to export configuration from my local environment to a Dev environment and ran into an error. I’ll explain how I fixed it below.

From time to time I find it interesting to review the service providers on the Drupal Marketplace to see who is contributing the most. It can be difficult to see them all at a glance so I started making this list to make it easier. Surprisingly this list now shows 108 service providers.

I have just returned from Drupal Developer Days (DDD) which was held in Milan, Italy this year. 400 people from around the world gathered for 6 days of working together, learning and talking about Drupal.

The event has been taking place since it started in Munich in 2010 since which time it has been held in Brussels, Barcelona, Dublin, Szeged, Montpelier. It now sits firmly on the annual calendar of events in Europe on a similar weight with the DrupalCons.

I was very glad to return as it was one of my favourite events during my trip to the 2014 edition held in Szeged, Hungary. I was sad to miss last year's DDD which took place in Montpelier, but getting married is a pretty good excuse :)
