Redfin will be presenting a session there on our toe-dipping foray into the world of "progressively decoupling" Drupal. Recently, I was on an episode to explore a little bit more about React and Drupal together--this should whet your appetite for the session at NEDCamp.

At Redfin, we've tried a number of these tools, including Sam Richard's Style Prototyping approach, and attended trainings for Pattern Lab. What attracted me to Herman was the common predicament of the small-to-medium project and its budget's ability (or inability) to deliver on these prototypes.

In CiviCRM, there's a feature called "Smart Groups," which lets you automatically create a group of contact records based on a search criteria. Maybe it's a tag, maybe it's a certain type of contact, or maybe it's members from a certain region.

Salesforce Suite is a group of modules for Drupal that allows for pulling data from Salesforce into Drupal, as well as pushing data from Drupal to Salesforce. In this blog post, we’ll look at using that hook to pull three Salesforce custom fields (select lists) into Drupal as taxonomy terms in three vocabularies.
