Journal https://www.amazeelabs.com/en/journal/feed en Choosing Open Source: A career perspective https://www.amazeelabs.com/en/journal/choosing-open-source-career-perspective I have been a long time user of, and a firm believer in, Open Source Software - in fact, from before the term “Open Source” was in general use. I have no idea how widely known the history of the term is, but it should be remembered that the adoption of the name “Open Source”, and the associated founding of the Open Source Initiative, was a calculated move to disassociate free software from its more political dimensions and make it more palatable to businesses (if you want to know more, I suggest reading - History of free and Open Source software).

We had not only great weather, food, company… but also great sessions! This year’s schedule also included the Spanish Splash Awards, Business Day and even a side-event for those accompanying attendees, called Family in Drupal, where they did activities such as yoga, surfing, horse-riding, etc. Thu, 16 May 2019 19:37:58 +0200 Fran Garcia https://www.amazeelabs.com/2251 Using Twig with Storybook and Drupal https://www.amazeelabs.com/en/journal/using-twig-storybook-and-drupal Using UI pattern libraries in Storybook allow us to build a collection of front end UI components that can be used to build bigger components, even full web pages. However, frontend/backend integrations can be fraught with difficulties. In this piece, I’ll explain our process to make these challenges easy, even when using GraphQL fragments inside Twig templates.

Granted, I decided to travel light, so my carry-on suitcase quickly showed the task wouldn’t take long.

The first two days of pre-conference sprinting resulted in fixing the testing pipeline of the webpack module, a prototype for using Drupal as a datasource for Gatsby using GraphQL instead of JSON:API and even solved an unexpected issue for the devel module to provide a way to load dump an entity with all its references embedded inside. You can read more about these solutions here.

As a newcomer to the field, I have been eager to simply be surrounded by, and learn from, so many in this community. Additionally, DrupalCon is providing the perfect opportunity to hang out with some incredible colleagues.

After that, I took a break from the seasonal migration and remained at home, in the office, like an overfed cat with agoraphobia.
