Two years after I announced my piano challenge - to be fair, I really only took it serious this year - le moment suprême has arrived: I'll be performing the Moonlight Sonata the 8th of December on a concert in the church of Zevergem. I'm not alone that afternoon: together with 2 choirs and the harmony orchestra of De Pinte, we'll be playing to raise money for Studio Brussel's De Warmste Week. You will also be able to place bets whether I'm actually going to finish the third movement or not, so there's some extra pressure on my shoulders ...
The latest release of Indigenous for Android brings a handy new feature: push notifications! You can fully control what you receive, since you are able to send them yourself on any given moment. Push notifications are send via Pushy.me which relies on MQTT.
About a year ago, I only just learned about the principles of IndieWeb, which in a way is a bit of a shame. Fast forward to now, and I'm proud to announce the first stable release for Drupal 8. Together with this milestone, I also pushed a new version of Indigenous so that both are aligned feature wise.
Starting this year, I have the opportunity to contribute to Drupal and get paid for it. While I've had sponsored time in the past, this time it's recurring: Dropsolid is paying me a day a month to work on Drupal core or contrib. 1 day is limited, however, make no mistake, even one day is useful to get into the queue and review issues or commit patches on contrib modules I maintain. And of course, I credit them in the issue queue.
After months of reading, experimenting and a lot of coding, I'm happy that the first release candidate of the Drupal IndieWeb module is out. I guess this makes the perfect time to try it out for yourself, no? There are a lot of concepts within the IndieWeb universe, and many are supported by the module. In fact, there are 8 submodules, so it might be daunting to start figuring out which ones to enable and what they exactly allow you to do.
