Drupal Association Community Survey 2014

Every year The Drupal Association conducts a community survey to help gauge success, mood of the community and inform future strategies. The 2014 report is now available (link below).

Interesting Findings

  • Drupal 8 appears to be a given on the vast majority of respondents’ plans. About 80% say they plan to adopt Drupal 8. Another 8% have plans to evaluate the release.
  • Top Drupal challenges for respondents include recruiting and keeping talent, as well as finding high quality documentation for modules
  • Organisation size varied widely with the largest portion of respondents being either freelancers or in organisations under 25 people
  • The majority of respondents work for design/development shops
  • About half the respondents identified themselves as Developers
  • Less than half of the respondents say they are Drupal Association members
  • The more advanced a person’s skill level is, the more likely they are to be a Drupal Association member
  • The vast majority of respondents say they would go to every DrupalCon if their company paid for them to go

    Z-Ray Toolbar for Drupal

    Over Christmas Daniel Berman (@proudboffin), Zend Technologies, let me know about Z-Ray Toolbar for Drupal, a useful companion tool for profiling Drupal page loads and performance. His team are seeking constructive feedback on how they can enhance the tool to help Drupal developers overcome common pain-points and identify where the solution is lacking presently.

    Visit a demo of the Z-Ray Toolbar (see the footer area for the toolbar). There's also a Z-Ray for Magento.

    Hear Brian Lewis interview Daniel Berman on Z-Ray on the Modsunraveled Podcast.
