The Engineering Team provides support to many community members and everyone at the Association. Every day, the team helps people who are at different stages of the Drupal adoption journey. As part of our membership campaign, we're taking a close look at how the team makes an impact throughout this cycle through the work to support a few different Association programs.Industry Pages: convincing decision makers to adopt Drupal
The team played a key role in the Industry Pages project—from conception to execution. The industry pages help decision makers see how Drupal achieves the vision Dries' set forth when he described Drupal as the platform for ambitious digital experiences.
The first three industry pages for media and publishing, higher education, and government are now on Drupal.org. These pages tell stories of success with Drupal for three verticals with geo-targeted content to show our global audience the solutions that are most meaningful to them. We plan to learn from this project and to expand into new verticals. By highlighting what Drupal can do for you, and connecting decision makers to service providers and industry peers, the industry pages are a powerful tool for leading the way to wider adoption.Drupal Jobs: wider adoption leads to more career opportunities
The team is responsible for Drupal Jobs, the subsite dedicated to helping employers and job seekers connect for Drupal-related opportunities. Ever since Drupal Jobs launched in 2015, it has helped increase awareness of the Drupal project. As the pool of employers grows, so do the career opportunities. When more Drupal jobs are available, our ecosystem grows. Wider Drupal adoption becomes possible.DrupalCon: Events site brings us full circle
DrupalCon unites our global community and people who want to know more about the project. On the Events site, the engineering team supports everyone—event organizers who post content, speakers who submit sessions, and attendees who register using Drupal Commerce and CoD. With a great UX on con sites and fun theme implementation, we show users what Drupal can do for you.Around we go, thanks for coming along
As the adoption journey goes full circle and we see these efforts continue to help maintain and grow a strong ecosystem, we appreciate that you are coming along with us. To help sustain the work of the Drupal Association, join as a member. Thank you!
