A hive of activity?

During a discussion on bee during the last Backdrop Live, there was discussion around the site alias functionality that drush has, which would enable bee to perform actions on remote installs of Backdrop.  Given that drush support for Backdrop is likely to end with the Drupal 7 End of Life I think that ensuring this functionality is available for bee going forward is becoming more and more important. I would like to explore with people who used the functionality

Commerce solutions for Backdrop

In Drupal 7 there were many ways to setup e-commerce sites, and lots of sites were setup with each of those options. Ubercart has been ported and has a lot of other modules to extend it, but many others are not ported yet or are only available with minimal or partially ported features.

Come discuss the commerce options that are available for site owners and what we can do to make more options available.

Solr, Lando, and Backdrop

I recently began trying to learn more about Solr search.  I found old instructions on getting Solr to work with Drupal 8 locally using Lando.  After getting that working I wanted to see if I could do the same thing with Backdrop.  It turns out that it isn't that different.  Come learn how to setup Solr search to begin experimenting and learning more.

CiviCRM and Backdrop

Given interest in Backdrop and CiviCRM (based on CiviCRM usage stats of recent months) I thought it might be worth opening a room up for conversation on that topic. I don't plan to have a big presentation but I do still have the demo site that I built for the session I did at Backdrop Live in September 2020, so I'll dust that off. The video below was recorded during that session so we don't have to redo it completely but folks can bring questions and things to share about things that were covered in that session or about the topic in general.

Organic Groups (Past, Present, Future)

There is currently an effort being made to port the Organic Groups module from Drupal 7. This is a large and complex module, but important to many sites. In this session, we'll talk about:

  • What the Organic Groups module does and why it's important to the community
  • The progress of the port 
  • If the work is ongoing, how we can work together to expedite completion
  • If the work is complete, what we learned from the experience

Using ProboCI For Backdrop Developer and User Testing

ProboCI is an open source platform for the testing, debugging, and collaborating on web based projects for Backdrop CMS, Drupal, Wordpress and any PHP based project. It operates on pull requests and generates specific build environments that can be scripted and standardized to provide a uniform way to do both automated and manual testing of modules and interfaces.
