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.

It ensures that everything you want to appear in a search actually appears, making for a more effective search.Continue Reading
Last month, most of our Duo team traveled to Nashville for DrupalCon 2018. The annual event brought more than 3,000 Drupal developers and advocates together to discuss the latest changes and trends with the platform. Every time I’ve attended DrupalCon, I’ve left energized about the platform’s future and inspired to bring that excitement to our clients. This year was no different.Continue Reading
One of Drupal’s greatest strengths is its variety of modules that help users and developers to customize the platform to their specific needs. As part of an ongoing series, we asked Duo team members to spotlight one module they think is a must-have for any Drupal site.Continue Reading
A little more than one month ago, the Drupal Security team alerted the Drupal community that a necessary security update was on its way to fix a major vulnerability that put more than one million Drupal-run websites at risk.
