How the Lemberg Solutions Team Contributes to Drupal

Contributing code back to the community is essential to Open Source software. Without this mindset, we wouldn't have a variety of Linux distributions, Content Management Systems like WordPress or Drupal, and many other tools and services.

Finding a balance between paid work and personal time for your initiatives and pet projects is challenging, but it converts into valuable things used by thousands of people in the future. That's why, at Lemberg Solutions, we support Open Source initiatives and motivate our developers to contribute code whenever possible.

In this article, I want to tell you about the Drupal modules that our developers started as their initiatives helpful for them and the whole Drupal community.

Drupal contributors at Lemberg Solutions and what they do

Below is just a part of our Drupal team consisting of over 40 experienced developers. These guys combine working on our projects with contributing their code to the community for knowledge sharing.

Roman Paska

Roman is the Head of the Drupal department at Lemberg  Solutions. He has more than 14 years of experience with Drupal projects. Furthermore, he mentors all Drupal Team Leads at  Lemberg Solutions and sets high-quality standards for the whole team. 

Roman's most practical module is Range. Inspired by the Drupal core Number module, Range inherits some of its features. It provides a numeric range field and allows saving two numeric  (integer, decimal, or float) values (from and to), which represent a range (for example, age range). 

This module started for Drupal 7, but Roman ported it and continued support for Drupal 8, Drupal 9, and even the latest Drupal 10 version.

Other ways we contribute to Drupal

Besides the Drupal engineers listed above, many other developers at Lemberg Solutions contribute to Drupal development in different ways by providing patches, comments, tests, and translations in Drupal core, modules, themes, and installation profiles. Many Lemberg Solutions developers contribute to the Open Social community platform and related modules:

Serhii Myronets (Agami4) maintains Open Social themes: Social Base and Social Blue. Also, he has made contributions to the well-known Gin Admin Theme

Final thoughts

In this article, I wanted to focus more on people than modules because people are always behind the actual code. At least now, until Chat GPT, GitHub Copylot, and other AI tools become part of our normal development. This article will motivate developers to continue contributing to a range of Drupal development services or not be afraid to start doing it.
