In a past life, I worked as an editor for a couple of B2B websites. The first one ran on Drupal 7, while the second, launched several years after the first, was built out on Drupal 8. When this D8 site was ready for action, I was eager to dive in and test out all of the bells and whistles.Continue Reading
There’s no getting around it: Website redesigns are expensive, arduous processes. From project management to quality testing, the challenges involved in undergoing such a design overhaul are legion. Given the costs involved and the extent of labor needed to update any given site, delaying or putting off a major design overhaul is an understandable stance from business owners.
As we step into 2019, it’s a good time to stop and take a look at what’s been happening with the Drupal editing experience. 2018 seemed to be the “year of the editor” for not only Drupal, but the entire open source CMS world.Continue Reading
Earlier this fall, I attended BADCamp 2018, an annual celebration of open-source software. The conference was held in Berkeley, CA and featured four days filled with talks and training sessions about the latest tools to hit the open-source world.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.
