Contributing to a modern administration UI for Drupal

At Ymbra we’ve always been a champion of giving back as much as possible to the community and that’s why we’ve always been involved in it: participating in the Catalan and Spanish Drupal associations, organizing and sponsoring events, contributing code and giving sessions... But it’s time go one step further: Ymbra is giving me the opportunity to invest most of my time during the coming months into the initiative to redesign the new Drupal administration.

Creating default content for easier testing on Drupal 8

While working with Drupal 7 we had some development workflows that worked very well for us and now we want to adapt those workflows to the new major version of Drupal.
