Things I've Learned from the Drupal Twig Slack
I've been a very active member of the DrupalTwig Slack since joining it during Frontend United in Belgium. So much so that I have recently become an admin of it.
Since joining, I've been amazed - again and again - at the amount of questions that get answered on the various channels. Often within seconds of being asked. Without doubt, I rate the DrupalTwig Slack as the best source of (frontend) Drupal knowledge available at the moment.
That said, it is a free Slack so we can only search back through 10,000 messages in the archive, meaning a lot of knowledge can be lost. To help alleviate this, I started a blog series on our blog at www.annertech.com/blog entitled "Things I Learned in the DrupalTwig Slack" (Volume 1 and Volume 2). This allows us to keep (some of) the knowledge in a public space. It is also a place that we can direct the many people who ask a question that has already been answered (the most popular being - "how do I get the value of a URL in a link field in Drupal 8").
In this session I'd like to show some of the things that people have been having trouble solving that we have solved as a community on the Drupal Twig Slack channel, basically a "best of" of my blog series with the added bonus of some items that are upcoming in future posts.
This will be a lively, informative discussion which will give you information on a great resource for frontend Drupal development. You will learn answers to questions you didn't know you had, some you had but didn't know how to phrase, and some that you may have known already.
Drupal is a great community. We share. And borrow. And share some more. The DrupalTwig Slack is fantastic for sharing knowledge and resources. It's a great community building tool. It's a great entry-level resource for people who want to contribute to Drupal but are not confident contributing code just yet. Let's share the knowledge and make it even better.
We'll then open the floor to general Drupal frontend Q&A - because the audience has more answers than I have!
