Our final blog in the series summarizes these benefits, helping you to develop and sustain a successful website – and save money!
Drupal 8 release was first published in 2015. However, Drupal 7 users were cautious about opting for a Drupal 8 migration. Drupal 8 contained many changes, and many popular Drupal 7 modules were not available in the early releases. But fast forward to 2018… Drupal 8 is now mature. With stable releases that can be used for production sites.
In an earlier blog we wrote about the advantages of starting with a minimum viable product, then extending the functionality in a series of incremental releases. A so-called continuous development process offers many benefits. And lowers your risks. This second article focuses on further development tips, focusing on the development process.
Companies frequently treat websites as one-off developments. As a result, many sites are neglected over time. They no longer meet current technology standards, security needs, or user expectations such as a responsive design on mobile devices. Continuous development solves many of these problems. And offers many other benefits too!
As we wrote in one of our earlier blogs, we are busy with a number of new projects. In the previous blog we talked about a recent Drupal 8 project. This is now nearing completion. In this blog we want to talk about another project: the development of a completely unique reception system.
Life is busy at BSL! We are working on a number of new projects, and have welcomed more new colleagues to our team. Two of these new colleagues are working onsite for a long-standing client as part of a new Scrum team. The complex project is based on Drupal 8, and with our in-house expertise, we aim to complete the project in June.
Sanne joined the BSL team at the end of April. Initially she will fill two roles: Front-End Developer and Junior Java Developer. Which of course means that our busy developers and the marketing team are pleased with her arrival. An extra pair of hands is very welcome! Sanne is a cheerful and creative developer.
We’d like to welcome Jurjen, the newest addition to our team! Perfect timing, as we have recently started work on two large projects. Jurjen will be working as Junior Java Developer, and he’ll be put to work alongside our developers from the word go. Three words that can describe Jurjen are: inquisitive, sociable, and a gamer!
