Drupal Advent Calendar

By james, 1 January, 2024

This December was the second incarnation of the Drupal Advent Calendar project.

This started on a whim in 2022, and while fun, I knew I didn’t want to write it all myself the second year.

So at DrupalCon Lille, I started asking people to get involved in this year’s calendar, initially focusing on people I know. The response was generally positive, with most people eager to take part.

My aim was to have a different person talk about an aspect of Drupal behind each door, and that was more or less how it worked out.

Welcome to day four of the Drupal Advent Calendar, and today we are getting a little introspective as James Shields (lostcarpark) talks about his new Advent Calendar module and reflects on how the Drupal Advent Calendar started.

The Drupal Advent Calendar was a daft idea I started last year (2022). It literally hit me as I was falling asleep on the last night of November.
