“For WCC, a fast growing company, attracting new staff is very important. That’s why we wanted a modern, fresh looking career site that can be used on all platforms. And created with Drupal. BSL has done that perfectly. Throughout the project BSL kept us informed, and they were flexible when we needed a little time. And all that within budget. Fantastic!”

Rare Care project through the eyes of a front-end developer

Because we frequently develop custom software at BSL, we often become closely involved with our clients and their goals. Our developers recently completed the RareCare.World website. Here, you can read about how one of our front-end developers experienced working on the project…

A Drupal 8 website with high aspirations

A few months ago, BSL was approached by the  Stichting Shwachman Support, the Dutch patient organization for the Shwachman Diamond Syndrome (SDS). They had joined forces with other patient organizations and experts to develop a new website: Rarecare.world. They recognized that BSL had the expertise to make their vision a reality. BSL redesigned the website and developed a new back-end. We now host and maintain the website on behalf of the client. 

New online marketer for BSL

Since the beginning of October, Marco van den Doel has strengthened the BSL team in the role of online marketer. Marco will use his creative writer skills to improve the content of BSL’s online presence. As online marketer, Marco is responsible for all BSL’s online content.

Eight reasons for Drupal 8 migration

Developers have been working on Drupal 8 since the end of 2012. The first release was finally published in 2015. However, Drupal 7 users were cautious about opting for a Drupal 8 migration. Why? Firstly, because Drupal 8 contained so many changes. And secondly, many popular Drupal 7 modules were not available in the early releases. But fast forward a few years to 2018… Drupal 8 is now mature. With stable releases that can be used for production sites. And with almost 200,000 Drupal 8 sites currently online, now is the time to make the switch.
