Kiev Drupal Camp 2017: The First Impression

I took part in Kiev Drupal Camp 2017 last weekend. It was a good decision to go to the code sprint. I'm sure that the second day of the conference was much better than the first one with formal presentations. My personal thanks to Dmitry Drozdik, Dmytro Danylevskyi and Alexander Schedrov for their help to meet OpenY.

The main issue of the first day was that presentations went in several 4-5 streams in different rooms and I missed a lot of useful information. Fortunately, Conference organizers recorded videos of all presentations.

On this Camp I had presentation: Paragraphs are more powerful than you can expect.

There was not enough time. I tried to provide the extended overview and 3 demonstrations, but overview was very short and demos weren't very attractive. There is the video above.

LandingPage FrameWork: Introduction

Now I'm working on a new Drupal 8 module "LandingPage Framework". By the fact it's a package of several modules and themes.

Project page: https://www.drupal.org/project/landingpage

I still don't have a stable release but there is a version that you can start to play with and let me know if it worth to continue the development. The module use the power and the magic of Drupal Paragraphs. Paragraphs approach provides beautiful flexibility in content management because you can get any Drupal functionality in paragraph entity and you can set paragraphs on each page in individual order. 

The main goal of that package is simplification of Drupal based LandingPage development. I want to provide several out of box solutions that can cover the main cases of LandingPages such as Event page, Product page, Promotional page, CV/Portfolio page etc. But I want to provide extremely unlimited options to customize the page.

Please visit this page to take a look on very simple example of Landing page build with that module:


Also you can get more specific technical information in README.txt

I'm not going to write a long post, because one image better than 1000 words.

Please see a quick screencast in that post, it's only an introduction that allow you to catch an idea. I hope I'll do the serious of screencasts to explain how you can use LandingPage Framework, how you can customize LandingPages and how you can do your best in Responsive Design.
