Code Enigma Heads For DrupalCamp North West

Those with a sweet tooth found the Code Enigma booth at this year's DrupalCamp NW an excellent source of nutrition. Find out more about what was a truly excellent event.

Code Enigma was proud to be a Gold Sponsor of

Performance Of Panels

An actual performance test, like-for-like, of Panels versus Block

Panels has been around for a long time now. It gets mixed reviews. It's a bit like the Marmite of Drupal - you either love it or you hate it. Personally, I'm a fan, for a number of reasons that warrant blog posts of their own.

A Step Closer: Views In Paris

Code Enigma recently funded a sprint to help get the Views module in to core for Drupal 8. This is the 'how' and the 'why'. One of our developers, Alasdair, will be following up with the 'what'.

Let's Get Views In Core

Code Enigma are sponsoring a Views In Core sprint in Paris, France, from 26th - 28th August 2012.

Following on from Earl Miles’ request that people help fund the Views In Core initiative for Drupal 8, Code Enigma is proud to announce a Views In Core sprint, in Paris, straight after DrupalC

A Scrum Master is NOT a Project Manager

For those new to Agile there is often an assumption made that the Scrum Master and the Project Manager are the same role. This is absolutely not the case. The two roles are very different and they each fit into approaches to projects that are wildly different. If anything, the Product Owner role is most closely aligned with the Project Manager role.

Contrib Hour Report

Contrib Hour time again! (Well, actually it was yesterday, but we have a bit of a mad rush up to Christmas, so I'll keep it brief.) Alasdair

Piping A File In To MySQL

Our use case here is if you have a lot of data you want to insert in the MySQL - data that you might usually use the Drupal UI for, but there's so much of it you'd rather not if you can help it!

Contrib Hour Report

The roundup of what the Code Enigma team did in their weekly hour of maintaining their contributed Drupal modules.

That time again! Apologies for the dry title, but since this is a weekly event, doesn't seem much point in trying to dream up a snappy headline week in, week out. I guess I'll never be a columnist! So, without further ado, here's what the team did today:

Deployment Tools In Toulouse

Supporting information for the talk we gave at Drupalcamp Toulouse

A big thank you to everyone who joined the DrupalCamp Toulouse English track for my opening session, and I hope it was useful. Also, special thanks to Miguel Jacq for his input, both to the talk and to our systems in general.

Node references and relationships

Using Views to manipulate connections between content.

This is the first of a set of blogs that could be called quick (and sometimes dirty) solutions to everyday problems.  The plan is to provide examples and code snippets from actual projects as they come up.  In this first one, I'll look at a couple of examples of how to use views to manipulate nod

When To Use Drupal

Just because we've chosen to specialise in the Drupal CMS as our main tool - that doesn't mean we recommend hitting every nail with it.

I'd like to start by quoting Jeff Goldblum's character from the 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park, Dr. Ian Malcolm, when he says to Richard Attenborough's park owner character, John Hammond:

Look, Drupal 7!

This is now my first Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade. Not without hitches, but all in all not too painful. Hope you like the new look.

Security Releases Don't Work

Wow, long lapse in posts there. Sorry folks. On with the show: Here's the problem. The Drupal security team do a fine job, following up on reports, auditing contributed modules with a point release to check for security weaknesses, working on core. It's all good, except for one thing:

Panels 3 And The 960 Grid System

This post was going to be longer, but I just lost the entire completed document because the worst (and probably most expensive at $15/day, yes DAY) mobile Internet provider in the world, EVER, just dropped my connection mid-submission and for the zillionth time to

Drupal 7 Cheat Sheet: The Database

This is a quick post while it's fresh in my head, regarding porting your contributed modules to the Drupal 7 API. This post specifically focusses on database manipulation and provides the like-for-like changes. If anything here is wrong, or could be done better, please let me know!
