Summer is starting to wind down, which means business is picking back up! Our team has made the most out of this past August by attending multiple conferences and events, along with tackling various internal projects. Read further to hear about David and Stephen’s presentation at Drupal GovCon, see our most recently completed project summary, and learn about our most recent initiative towards incentivizing the DesignHammer team and boosting office morale.
It’s Thursday! Which means we are bringing our readers some consistent, fresh content as promised. This week the DesignHammer team’s been reading about the most efficient ways to utilize specific SEO tactics, the expected World Cup finalists as predicted by A.I., and some thoughts on Drupal 8's new cache tags feature.
It’s finally hot enough to complain about how hot it is! Thankfully, due to the nature of this industry, the DesignHammer team has the luxury of staying thermally content as we continue to crack out code in our North Carolina office.
We’ve had a full and busy month around the office working on fantastic projects, and were honored to again make the Triangle Business Journal’s lists of top Internet Marketing and Design Firms! We’ve made time for fun in and out of the office with experiences like viewing the solar eclipse, attending GovCon and GenCon, and kayaking.
Summer’s here, and so is the humidity! Actually, it hasn’t been that bad so far, especially in the air-conditioned offices where we’ve been adding some certifications, continuing on with conference season, building new tools, and working with clients. Jay even took the time between the other work to submit a patch for Drupal!
Summer is almost officially here this week this week! Over here at DesignHammer we've been trying to escape the heat and keep up on the latest in the industry. We cover the following topics this week: buying lotion on Amazon.com, using Inverse Kinematics for tentacles, avoiding the top 3 causes for scope creep, and 7 server metrics to monitor for your Drupal site.
Part of our team is away at DrupalCon 2017, but we still have some ideas to share from out favorite articles read last week. We're talking about: 12 questions for Drupal project managers, why being grumpy at work may be beneficial, all about JAVA.UTIL.DATE, and how to think in alternatives.
Maintaining a daily focus of WordPress and Drupal websites is made easy with Lumturio.
In this post, I'll look at how DesignHammer improved our Jenkins build process by adding a testing workflow and setting up a parallel Build Flow job.
Websites are often likened to field of architecture, whether in describing content organization (i.e. site architecture) or the act of “building a website” akin to that of a structure. Two of America’s greatest architects, Louis Henry Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, opined on the concepts of form and functions. Inquire with either of these masters and they would undoubtedly say you need to understand the purpose, function, and intended audience before you can focus on appearance. So why is this not the norm in website design and development projects?
