Drupal 8 has been out for 2 months now, and there's never been a better time to choose Drupal for your website platform. Here are 8 reasons why!
We're digging into our first dry-run migrations from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8, and learning a lot about what's ready and what's not. And there's some surprises in there...
Today marks the release of Drupal 8, and the birthday of its founder, Dries Buytaert. This release is more than just a new digit, it's an entirely new platform with something for everyone to love, but it's particularly big for web site owners.
Here are the slides from my 2015 Drupal Summit talk, Quality Drupal DevOps!
Faster, more secure, more maintainable. Three nice benefits we get from our new standard Drupal server architecture.
We hear it all the time:
Why do you recommend a 6 hour budget for a simple integration? Here's an embed widget right here -- if this were WordPress I could do it myself!
More and more I keep running into assertions that Git is a version control tool, and that if you use it for deployment, you're doing it wrong.
At Freelock we find it to be a very effective deployment tool, and I'm not seeing a solution that meets our needs any better.
Two presentations in particular caught my attention recently mentioned this:
For many years, we've organized our development around user stories. What exactly is each user trying to accomplish, and what does that look like when they try to accomplish those tasks?
Another sales call today, with a prospective start-upper who thought Drupal might lower his costs to get a web startup launched.
And I didn't really answer the question directly -- because in the long run, if you're building something successful, you're going to spend as much on your Drupal site as you would building from scratch.
When I first handed John an initial disaster- an unfinished website that had to be completely rebuilt, he took all in stride and developed our site from the ground floor up, with speed and expertise. In addition, John has continued to take initiative in making our site to be one that we are extremely proud of. John continues to be a collaborative partner in the maintenance and continued development of AnswersForElders.com. I highly recommend him and his team for all your open source web needs.AnswersForElders.com
