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?
Stephen and David prepare for DrupalCon North America, the largest Drupal Event in the world, as well as for New Orleans, the conferences host city for 2016. They are ready to learn the latest about Drupal, connect with prospects, meet current clients, prospects and vendors, enjoys the food, famous cocktails, and unique sites of the Crescent City.
In 2015, on the verge of launching a new website, CED was forced to seek out a new vendor to complete the site and manage the deployment. DesignHammer delivered, not just on the project, but joining the organization, and sponsoring a premiere conference.
Selecting a web development vendor is not the easiest task. If you are tasked with hiring a web vendor to handle your new website build or redesign project, you may find yourself at a loss for how to proceed. We offer three signs you may be talking to the wrong firm.
We are headed north to Bethesda, MD this week for Drupal GovCon, one of the nation’s premier Drupal events. Formerly Drupal Gov Days and Capital Camp, the rechristened conference is again hosted by the National Institutes of Health, this year July 22–24.
