How to fix the Chrome 80 cookies issue in Drupal

There’s plenty of articles out there explaining what the changes are (https://blog.chromium.org/2020/02/samesite-cookie-changes-in-february.html), why they’ve been done (https://www.troyhunt.com/promiscuous-cookies-and-their-impending-death-via-the-samesite-policy) and how to ‘theoretically’ fix them with simple code examples, but we haven’t stumbled upon many articles explaining ‘practical’ solutions to apply to a Drupal site to actually fix the issues that arise due to the stricter cookie policies implemented since the Chrome 80 release.

BlueSpice, based on MediaWiki, is an open source alternative to Confluence 

Knowledge management is a key to success in modern enterprises—but it is not exactly easy to achieve. Keeping track of all relevant details across all employees is a huge challenge, especially in agile environments, which most companies say they are.

Most companies resort to buying wiki-like solutions, such as Confluence from Atlassian, which exposes them to the lock-in effect of proprietary software. But many would do well to consider BlueSpice, an open source alternative to Atlassian Confluence that has a noble ancestry: it’s based on Wikipedia’s MediaWiki.

TIL the server side of Slack is written in PHP. How about that?

Slack uses PHP for most of its server-side application logic, which is an unusual choice these days. Why did we choose to build a new project in this language? Should you?

PHP-the-language has many flaws, which undoubtedly have slowed these efforts down, but PHP-the-environment has virtues which more than compensate for those flaws. And the options for improving on PHP’s language-level flaws are pretty impressive. On the balance, PHP provides better support for building, changing, and operating a successful project than competing environments. I would start a new project in PHP today, with a reservation or two, but zero apologies.

Rather interesting to learn that the server side of Slack is written in PHP. I guess I assumed it was a Ruby or Go thing. I think it’s useful to hear about success stories for a mature language like PHP. It shows us that just because something has been around for awhile doesn’t mean it can’t do something cool.
