Celebrating 10 years of Amazee in Cape Town

It felt like an extended April Fool’s joke, as all of our colleagues, some of whom we have only met online, were suddenly appearing in the Cape Town office.

Every possible space that a bottom could be placed was taken, with an American accent here, a German accent there, and everything between, from Slovenian, to Austrian, Spanish, French, Dutch and Romanian. Not to mention our usual blend of South African accents. It was the start to a happy time of chaos!

Render a menu tree from custom code in Drupal 8

Having menus rendered on a site in Drupal 8 is pretty simple. Most of the time this can be accomplished with site building, in a few clicks. And if you need some more advanced features on top of what the Drupal 8 core has, you can also have a look at modules like Menu Block, or have a look at this (a bit outdated) contributed modules for menus page.

However, you may have some special requirements, for example, to display some small portion of a menu inside the template of a node. There is no simple 'site building' solution for that. You most probably need to code a bit.

My time in Zurich

I’ve always imagined as a kid, me travelling the world to see and experience different cultures and places. The one country that I’ve always wanted to visit was Switzerland. I was asked by many of my friends and family, as well as my teachers ‘Why Switzerland?’  and I would simply say “because they were never part of any war and of course... CHOCOLATE!"
