Drupal 9 https://www.tag1consulting.com/ en Are my favorite modules ready for D9? https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/are-my-favorite-modules-ready-d9 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>As everyone in the Drupal community knows, Drupal 8 was a major shift in the way the software was built and will be developed into the future. Prior to Drupal 8, each major release essentially caused major rewrites for core and all of the contributed modules. Drupal 8 aimed to fix this; moving forward, Drupal upgrades will be easy and fast. You get a great return on investment upgrading to D9 because you can seamlessly upgrade to Drupal 10, then 11. Development is looking forward to newer versions, not looking back. This is great news if you want to upgrade to Drupal 9. Over half of the top 50 D7 contrib modules have versions which are Drupal 9 compatible or have compatible releases in progress. Many or all of the features you rely on are ready to go in the new versions. Upgrading modules to Drupal 8 or greater has been an iterative process, like previous versions. Issue trackers, sprints, and focused sessions helped move many of the major modules into readiness for later versions. There aren't many sprints for Drupal 7 development anymore, but there are people working to upgrade D7 modules to D8 and D9. ## What does...</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/are-my-favorite-modules-ready-d9" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 09/01/2021 - 07:49</span> Wed, 01 Sep 2021 14:49:12 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 390 at https://www.tag1consulting.com APQC: The D9 Migration - approach, challenges, and what’s next - part 2 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/apqc-d9-migration-approach-challenges-and-whats-next <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Planning and executing a major software upgrade can be as easy as running some software, to as complicated as a major migration. For the <a href="https://www.apqc.org/">American Productivity and Quality Center,</a> it was definitely the latter.

In part 2 of our Tag1 Team Talk with the APQC, Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers talks with John Tesmer, the Executive Director of Information Technology, and Jim Gillilan, Senior Architect and Lead of the Technology team at APQC, about their migration to Drupal 9, and their future plans.

In addition, Drupal has witnessed countless paradigm shifts in its lengthy history, both in the surrounding world of web development and in its internal workings. As Drupal has grown to power over two percent of the websites on the entire internet, many new workflows and governance structures have had to be put in place to guarantee the continued longevity of the Drupal community. In addition, with end-of-life quickly approaching for Drupal 7, contributors now have to juggle a widening range of versions. In this very special two-part series, join Angie Byron (Senior Director, Product and Community Development at Acquia), Michael Meyers (Managing Director at Tag1 Consulting), and your Core Confidential host Preston So (Editor in Chief at Tag1 Consulting), for a fireside chat with the one and only Angie Byron.
