Understanding Drupal Architecture and Its Benefits

Posted by Engine Room Team on Aug 21, 2020 11:49:10 AM

Running a company that providesweb development services, and having been in web development for over twenty years has given me a wide-eyed and fairly objective view of the Content Management System (CMS) landscape. That wide-eyed understanding leads me to be very skeptical of any company or service claiming to be a panacea or some sort of “wonderful website-builder”. If our website is the beautiful house that we want to build, a CMS is more akin to the type of materials or tools we are using, than the engineer or the skilled craftsman. The tool can be beautiful, but without the skill and knowledge to use itm it’s worthless. The same goes for a CMS.

If you run a website, eCommerce site, or marketing department you likely know what a Content Management System (CMS) is. CMSs are applications that help manage content by allowing multiple users to create, edit and publish web content.  Love/hate or indifferent about it, they are the Operating Systems for your website, and just like the operating system on your laptop or phone, they need constant care, like patching, security updates, and upgrades. I want to talk specifically about the security part today.

What's New in Drupal 9

Posted by Jeremy Gouveia and Dennis Egen on Jul 7, 2020 1:27:39 PM

It seems like just yesterday we were migrating all of our clients to Drupal 8 from Drupal 7. ‘Migrating’ is actually not the best word for it. It conjures images of a simple, turnkey step-by-step, perhaps even wizard-like interface that magically moves your site from the old to the new. Or, migration conjures images of graceful birds, steadfastly and instinctively making their way to their new surroundings. If anyone who went through this Drupal 7 to 8 journey knows, it was neither graceful nor wizard-like. So, knowing that all Drupal sites will need to be on Drupal 9 by either Nov. 2021 or Nov. 2022, can be scary.
