Hippo is pleased to announce that its work with the Dutch National Police alongside ASP4all and partner Capgemini was recognized with a Computable Award in the category of Partner of the Year. Hippo began working with the Dutch Police in 2012, when a political decision merged the 27 local Dutch police corps into one central, national police force. Together with the reorganization, the Dutch Police reinvented its digital communications, employing marketing strategies including highly localized relevance and personalization to engage citizens in an increasingly transparent and cooperative approach to fighting crime. With Hippo, the National Police consolidated over 360 individual websites into one new website www.politie.nl. This new website provides a seamless, centralized web experience, bringing locally-relevant and instantly updated content to citizens across web, mobile and social channels.

Long time readers know that I'm a big fan of CMS Expo often held in Chicago. The same folks that bring you CMS Expo, The CMS Association, are now launching Dayhitter Events. Instead of the usual three-day events, these will be one day events and it sound like they might also take these events "on the road" to a location near you.

"There's no right way to do it, but there are wrong ways, trust me, I know, I've done them all. Doing it wrong can harm people and it can really hurt the community. What you all have built together is remarkable and it's worth considering how you extend it further and find ways to continue to collaborate, both as Drupal, and maybe even more importantly as a broader PHP community."

While Drupal 8 has been been under development for two and a half years, I haven't talked much about it. I learned long ago that it doesn't do much good to talk about an upcoming release of a CMS until the software crosses over from what most of us would consider "vaporware."
The software needs to be close to beta, allowing for normal folks to actually be able install for testing purposes with a reasonable amount of certainty we don't need to be a developer. If you're a loyal reader of Planet Drupal, by now you should be getting a sense that the time has come to finally talk about Drupal 8.
