I've talked with hundreds of Drupal professionals over the years (probably thousands at this point), and whether or not it's intentional, I think we fall into a pattern. When we talk about the benefits of the platform — specifically Drupal 8 — and what it can do for organizations, we often talk about it in relation to either the front-end user or the website developer.Continue Reading
Drupal 8.6 is out in the wild, and the latest version shows how the platform has evolved to try and attract technical and non-technical users to the Drupal community.Continue Reading
There are a lot of reasons why I love working in sales at Duo, where I get to tell clients — and potential clients — about the benefits of Drupal. I’ll be honest, though, there are definitely some challenges that come with the territory. Arguably the biggest obstacle I face is convincing a potential client why it’s worth spending thousands upon thousands of dollars to build a new website or digital platform with Drupal.Continue Reading
I didn’t get into this business to win awards.
In the early days here at Duo Consulting, I stressed to our team that we should focus on results, not recognition. That is a mantra I’ve maintained to this day.

What does the Search API module do?

What’s your roadmap?
That’s the question I ask any potential client I speak with. What’s your plan for creating content on your website? What path are you going to take to migrate from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8?
Knowing those answers helps me understand how Duo can best help them with their website needs. Inevitably, though, if they are looking for a redesign or a rebuild, they are going to hear me talk about Flex pages.Continue Reading
When you think about digital technology today, it’s easy to get inspired. Think of everything that you can do technologically today that you couldn’t do 10 years ago, or maybe even two years ago.

This past Wednesday, I felt both feelings within a few hours of one another.
