Drupal 7 Migration: For legacy Drupal 7 systems we provide migration to the latest version of Drupal or upgrade into Backdrop CMS. For situations where a lot of investment has been put into a Drupal 7 implementation, we can migrate the application with most customizations intact into Backdrop CMS. The Backdrop CMS community is dedicated to continuing the Drupal 7 development path and will provide support for years to come.

Software Engineering

Our software engineering team has over 60 years of combined experience in a variety of programming languages and frameworks. It is important to us that we the use best practices as defined by our industry. Experience has taught us that the best way to deliver clean code is not to make a mess. One technique we use to achieve clean code is by adopting code standards. We strive to ensure that the code we deliver complies with programming standards such as the PSR standards and the popular SQL style guide The code we produce for Drupal development complies with the Drupal Code Standards. Code standards promotes teamwork, increases programming production efficiency, reduces bugs and raises overall quality. Another tool in our best practice kit is using Behavior Driven Development. By using tools such as Behat, we can develop and deliver automated unit testing for the critical functionality our projects.

DevOps

For the health and stability of an organization, it is important to have solid development and operations (DevOps) systems in place to facilitate continuous maintenance and development. Our Services include:

Continuous Development CI/CD

We build automated workflow that takes code from development to production using tools such as Ansible, Jenkins, Gitlab, and Git.

Disaster Recover

Create a customized automated backup solution using Amazon S3, Google Filestore or good old rsync. Have peace of mind that if disaster strikes, your backups are ready to be restored.

Monitoring

It is important to monitor applications and infrastructure to gain insight into performance and stability in a centralized location. Know when an outage occurs before your users report it. Solve critical performance bottlenecks and improve productivity by being alerted when and before problems occur. Be alerted when security updates become available to maintain security.

We build and implement custom monitoring solutions using Nagios, Prometheus, New Relic or pingdom.

Containerization

Containerize your applications using Docker so the key dependencies of your application ship with the application.
