Blogging at Acquia

Sat, Sep 10, 2011 - 6:31pm -- Isaac Sukin

While I was at Acquia this summer I wrote a number of blog posts for Acquia. Check them out below.

Drupal Commons: Then and Now
A comparison of Acquia Commons at the beginning of the summer when I joined Acquia to the end of last summer when Commons was released and I wrote an analysis of it for Mediacurrent.
Status Streams in Commons
A sneak peak and overview of the status updates / activity stream features I developed that have become the centerpiece of Commons 2.0.
BrowserID: from announcement to Drupal module in under 24 hours
A discussion of how I wrote the BrowserID module for Drupal in under 24 hours since Mozilla announced the BrowserID initiative. This kind of effort can only happen in a large open-source community like Drupal's.
Commons 2.0 and Contributing to the Drupal Community
Throughout my time at Acquia, I made sure that I could contribute nearly everything I developed back to the Drupal community. As a result, any Drupal website in the world can now use status update and activity stream technology similar to the features that made Facebook so popular.

I agree with most of what's been written in both places. Here is my compilation of developments that I hope or expect to see this year.

However, documentation on writing an installation profile for Drupal 7 currently doesn't exist, so I thought I'd change that. Here's what I've discovered by reading through the code.

Installation profiles are like modules
