9 Easy Ways to Make Your Webinars and Meetings More Accessible

We are all adjusting to a strange new world where suddenly work meetings, university classes, pottery lessons and conference presentations are delivered online. While at times there can be some adjustment pains, everything going virtual has some advantages too. I've been able to virtually attend a web accessibility talk in Miami, a synthetic biology conference in Hong Kong and a dance class in New York, all while wearing grey sweatpants I've had since high school. But I'm young, tech savvy and abled. I'm sure not everyone is benefiting from the world moving online in the same way I am.

HTML Ordered List Tricks Tutorial

During a recent Web Fundamentals training, I was showing students how to make lists of content. If you've written any HTML before, you've likely used the <ul> tag to create an unordered bullet list.  

After showing the class how to do this, I showed them the less frequently used <ol> tag, which creates an ordered list, like so:

What's Next for Drupal 9?

Drupal 9.0 was launched earlier this month as a continuation of Drupal 8. This time around, the core update was more about updating the technology underlying Drupal's codebase and eliminating dependencies than introducing brand-new features, but fear not: we'll be getting some of those soon enough.

Drupal releases features on a semi-annual basis, and version 9.1 is expected to be rolled out around December this year.

My First Month as an Intern at Evolving Web

Originally from Winnipeg, MB, I moved to Fredericton, NB before beginning high school. I’ve always had interests in a variety of areas. I have a background as a musician, experience with content creation and design, and a fascination with computers.

Drupal 8 vs. Drupal 9: More Features for Content Editors  

The recent official launch of Drupal 9.0 represents 4 and a half years of improvements (and more than 4,500 individual contributors) to the open source CMS designed to support the most ambitious digital experiences. The official party line, so to speak, is that "the big deal about Drupal 9 is that it's not a big deal."

Building Accordions With the HTML5 Details Tag (No JavaScript Needed)

Use the web for a short amount of time and you'll no doubt bump into an accordion, one of those collapsible elements that, when clicking on the title, opens up to reveal more information. Click the title again, and it closes back up.  

If you're a web developer, you've also probably had to code one of these, myself included. There are a few different ways you could build this, but I recently learned that there's a way built right into HTML5! But first, let's take a look at the ways I (and probably you) have done this before.

Empowering Universities With Large-scale Drupal Platforms Using Custom Upstreams

For higher education IT departments, it's a familiar scenario.   

Your team is in charge of managing hundreds of websites that support different mission-critical areas of your organization. You are responsible for updating the sites, keeping them all up and running, and optimizing their performance. Additionally, each site has its own small team updating content, creating new features, and working within the Drupal admin system. They are predominantly non-technical users, and reach out to your team whenever they need help.
