January 2014

Right now we're working on some BuildAModule infrastructure improvements to make it easier to release new features and updates to the site. While we're hard away at work, we wanted to give you some incentive to participate in some Drupal contributing.

So, over the next week, for every patch you submit to a Drupal module, theme, or core, we will enter your name into a drawing to win a FULL YEAR of BuildAModule for the person of your choosing. Just send us an email with the link to the patch submissions, and we'll enter your name in. If you're new to patching, check out the Drupal.org documentation here, and a bit on BuildAModule about how to apply patches once they're created.

Good luck!

Megapage is coming back!

Based on the feedback we've been getting, everyone is really happy with the new BuildAModule site design, but a few of you miss the old home page (i.e., the Megapage!) and how you could search for videos with Control + F. So, we're going to bring it back! We're working on it now and we'll keep you posted when we launch. Thank you so much for your feedback, keep it coming!

Come to DrupalCamp New Orleans, March 29

I will be giving a keynote talk at DrupalCamp New Orleans on the future of Drupal. A couple of years back I spoke at an even in New Orleans and have been itching to go back ever since. If you've never been there, here's your excuse. It's an amazing place.

Or, Come to Sweden, March 15

I'm super stoked to be doing a keynote at DrupalCamp Sweden alongside Robert Douglass. This will be my first every European Drupal event, and I'm taking a wild guess that it will be amazing. If you're in across the big pond, consider joining us March 15h in Stockholm.

The new BuildAModule has a ton of new features and nearly every facet of the site has been improved in some way, shape, or form. While it's impossible to list each and every change here, we wanted to highlight some of the ones that we're the most excited about.

Watching videos is what our users do most, so it was important for us to have some major video player upgrades. Users on Android and iOS phones and tablets will immediately notice that we've gone to great lengths to provide a better mobile experience. And we've added a number of tools to the new video options menu, including the ability to hide the transcript and share a link to any point in a video.

If you've been using the site for awhile now, one of the most obvious change is the new homepage. We've highlighted how different users use BuildAModule to achieve their training goals, made it easier to find the newest and most popular videos, and added a handy new membership calculator to help you figure out the savings you can get from subscribing to longer-term and group memberships.

Instead of displaying all 1100+ videos on a single page, we've now split them up into individual collection pages to make it easier to browse through and digest our library. Each one includes a list of prerequisites, a description of who the collection is for, and a summary of what's covered, which makes it much simpler to determine which collections are right for you.

If you liked having all the videos on one page because it was easy to use your browser's search to find what you needed, then you'll love our new search overlay. You get the same kind of functionality with the added ability to search through transcripts as well. And since the overlay plays the videos from your results in-line, you can search freely without the fear of losing your place on the site.

We have an amazing activity monitor that visualizes your activity over the last 30 days and helps track your progression on the site. If you're the manager of a group account, you can look at the activity pages for each of your users to figure out what they've been working on. With these tools, you can get a sense of your overall progress at a glance and make sure you're getting the most out of your membership.

Another big feature that we've added is the playlist manager. You can now save playlists to your account and create landing pages for them. We've done everything that we can to make it quick and easy to create and share playlists that will help solve training problems for you and your organization.

There are hundreds of other improvements to the new site, and we'd like to invite you to take a look around and discover these new features for yourself. We hope you enjoy all of these new additions as much as we enjoyed working on them.
