It's official! - presenting at DrupalCon 2018

We are getting ready to present at DrupalCon 2018

https://events.drupal.org/nashville2018/sessions/one-click-upgrade-drupal-8-how-why-and-when

This year Drupal is 17. For over a decade the process of upgrading from one version to another was one of the biggest challenges. With Drupal 8 the ease of upgrading was one of most pleasant surprises. Looks like Drupal is getting out of teenage years and becoming quite a mature entity. 

By the end of this session you will know how to complete a content upgrade for your Drupal 7 or 6 website, and what is not included. We will do a step-by-step demo of how the migration process goes:

  • Starting with out of the box vanilla Drupal 8 site
  • Connecting to the existing website that you want to upgrade
  • What modules you need for Drupal 8
  • Blocks, Theme, and Views migrations
  • Options available for moving content from other systems: Feeds (finally ready for Drupal 8), Migrate Plus and other plugins.
  • We will also discuss when you want to upgrade your site and when you want to migrate your site, and variations/combinations of these two cases.

Session Takeaway: How and when to upgrade your website to Drupal 8

Expected Attendees: This session is designed for site builders, content managers and strategists who are planning overall site development.

2017: A Year in Review

January is a time of new beginnings, but also a time of reflection. As we dive full steam ahead into new and ongoing projects, we wanted to also take the time to look back to 2017: what we accomplished, where we went, and what our challenges and successes were. And of course, we wanted to share that with you.

Here were our big takeaways from last year:

KIPAC, Drupal 8 theme, and the Embrace of Drupal 8:

2017 was when we fully embraced the possibilities of Drupal 8. We launched our first Drupal 8 site for KIPAC and learned a lot in the process. We also developed a Drupal 8 theme based on the Stanford Light theme from SWS... the new theme is called Fibonacci Light :)

Cardinal Service and the Re-emergence of Wordpress:

As excited as we were by new developments in Drupal, we were just as stoked to get re-acquainted with our old friend Wordpress. While we love developing in Drupal, Wordpress is a robust and flexible tool that is just perfect for some sites. Luckily this year we had a project that was a perfect candidate: Cardinal Service! This site is centered around stories and opportunities, and our main focus was twofold: design and editor experience

The Wordpress social media plug-ins as well as some import and export plug-ins and features (like the WP All Import plug-in and the Modern Tribe Events Calendar) enabled us to leverage existing technology and content to tell a diverse and effective story about the program.

Blended Classroom in Support of Maternal Health:

Working with the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC), we developed a bleanded classroom learning system to support them in teaching nurses and other providers across the state about supporting mothers in labor. We started with the Opigno Drupal-based LMS, a robust open-source tool. From there, custom configuration, a custom module for registration flows, and custom design gave us a unique and feature-packed blended classroom focused on helping busy health-care professionals improve their skills. We haven't launched this one just yet, but check out our write-up and stay tuned!

Google Style Image Gallery for CARS

For this project, UX was the name of the game. Google Image search served as our design and functionality inspiration in developing a custom image gallery for this client. The galleries expanded and collaped just like Google's, and allowed users to flip through easily. This convenient navigation, paired with the ability to showcase all images on one page and easily zoom in on the selected image, created a dynamic, active, and functional user experience. 

Productivity Tools

In 2017, we focused on making work as easy and efficient as possible for our clients. These projects were built to improve workflow and help passionate people do what they do best.

We can't wait to keep building and growing in 2018. Do you have a project you want to tackle this year? Get in touch!
