Building the Open Source community

Open source technologies such as Drupal and JavaScript thrive on a constant influx of users and contributors. We at QED42 help open source technologies like Drupal grow with our internships, which help introduce fresh talent and minds to the magical world of open source. We offer a 6-month internship program here at QED42, that introduces college students to the endless possibilities that open-source technologies offer. 

Since our inception, we have added 100+ individuals to the Drupal talent pool. 

Our featured projects

BugSmash

The Bug Smash is a Drupal community initiative driven by contributors to address the known bugs in Drupal 8/9/10 core. The objective of this initiative is to lower the number of open bugs, resulting in a more stable Drupal core for everyone. Over the last quarter, QED42 has submitted over 50 patches for the Bug Smash Initiative. Recently Mohit, our technical architect who has been leading this community initiative from QED42 presented a keynote session at DrupalCon Europe 2021. 

SimplyTest

With Simplytest.me Drupal developers can easily evaluate and test any module, theme, distribution, or Drupal core version available on Drupal.org within a temporary sandbox without the requirement of any local setup. QED42 revamped the theme and frontend for Simplytest.me. We implemented components for CTA, displayed explanations, and footer template. We also created the Sponsor submodule that renders the images, alt text will be the sponsor name, linked to their site.

Mautic

Mautic is the world’s largest open-source marketing automation project. With over 200,000 organizations using Mautic and over 1,000 community volunteers.

We have team members actively involved in the development and maintenance of Mautic. Explore mautic here.

Hey!

Our first open source design gig, Hey! Is a library of customizable illustrations that offers professional-quality design elements to the community. You can use the Hey! illustration library for every project you can imagine and create - personas, storyboarding, comics, marketing, product illustrations, presentations, user flows, and more. Explore Hey! here.

Contributing to the quality of Open Source

Open source largely depends on a sustainable community to develop code rapidly, debug code effectively, and build out new features. Working towards a quality-assured open source world, our Quality Assurance engineers have always embraced the idea of open source wholeheartedly. The QA team at QED42 is in an endeavor to ensure that technologies like Drupal and JavaScript remain bug-free and without errors. 

Our QA team contributes to global projects such as Mautic which is an open-source marketing automation project with more than 1000 developers contributing to the project. We have also contributed to open-source initiatives such as Olivero, Claro, Bartik, Seven themes, and Drupal-Javascript Initiatives. 

Our JavaScript contributions

On the JavaScript side of things, our team has developed JS elements such as the ‘polymer-zoomove Element’ which allows you to zoom in on images with just a mouseover. To help you make the most of your digital real-estate, we engineered the ‘polymer-bg Element’ to evenly distribute images on a JS page. We have also developed custom navigation tabs for React Native supporting 5 different styling types with amazing animations.

These are just a few glimpses of our ongoing and continual commitment to the spirit of open source. To take things up a notch, we keep on finding new ways to contribute with the entire team shouldering this commitment we have towards open source.
