We experienced this year's DrupalCon vicariously through our last Michigan Drupal meetup and our previous podcast with Steve Burge from OSTraining. This summer proves to be quite busy with new team members, projects, and Drupal 8 investigations.
As the Commercial Progression team size grows, our development team has begun to specialize. Brad has focused on developing new processes for site architecture and shares his discoveries for preparing a Drupal project for design and development. Other team members share their personal project subject matter.

Chris and Shane discuss the Acquia contrib Personalize module based on Lift technology for content personalization via URL based campaign parameters, geography, visitor cookies, A/B or Multi-variate testing, and a host of other variable session data.
Inspired by Jeff Eaton and the Battle for the Body Field DrupalCon presentation, Brad dug into the Paragraphs module and put together a popular paragraphs blog post with some best practices for winning the battle for the body field. When Brad is not fighting the good fight for the supremacy of the Paragraphs module, he has also created an automated competitive marketing intelligence research script… yeah I know, really.
