We’re off to a great start of the new year! In January, we wrote some really interesting blog posts; in case you missed any of them, we’ve prepared this overview where you can find all of our posts from last month, neatly compiled in one place. Enjoy!
2018 in review
Our first post in 2019, published just a few days into the new year, was a review of our achievements in the previous year. Not only did 2018 mark the 5-year anniversary of Agiledrop, it will also remain in our memories as the year when we upped our game, scaled our team very successfully and optimized our strategy for the future.
Of course, we still found the time to give back to the Drupal community, whether it be through open-source contributions or any of our educational events, such as our free Drupal courses.
Interview with Shawn McCabe, CTO of Acro Media
We couldn’t properly start the year without continuing with our Community Interviews series. Mere days after our yearly review, we published the interview with Shawn McCabe, CTO of the Canadian Acro Media.
Shawn’s love for open source was something that was immediately obvious from our talk and it was extremely interesting to get to know his story about discovering and working with Drupal. Our favorite part is almost definitely how he first met Dries - but you’ll just have to check out the entire post if you’re curious about that!
Best Drupal 8 Security Modules
To also cater to the more tech-oriented audience, and to highlight one of the foremost advantages of Drupal (yes, of course it’s security!), we wrote a post about the 5 Drupal security modules that we’ve so far found to be the most useful.
Even though Drupal is known for being a very secure CMS out-of-the-box, it still never hurts to take some additional security measures. Better safe than sorry, they say, especially with so many cyber security threats reported recently!
Interview with Gabriele Maira of Manifesto Digital
Next up came another Community Interview - this time we talked with Manifesto Digital’s Gambry, an avid proponent of contribution sprints (definitely not just because he’s responsible for running local Contribution Sprints in London!). He thinks every Drupal developer should attend a sprint at least once in their life, and provides the really on-point reasons for this.
There’s one sentence from the interview that’s really remained with us and fills us with warmth every time we read it: “And instead of being a mortal between gods, I found friends. I found the wonderful Drupal Community.” Ahh … Isn’t it great? Can you feel the warmth? We know we sure do.
The Story of Agiledrop: Cultivating Strong Relationships with Clients
Our final blog post from January was the 3rd chapter in our latest series of posts, The Story of Agiledrop. In this extensive post, we talked about the steps we take to ensure that the relationships with our clients are always as healthy and strong as possible.
Admittedly, due to our unique workflow, this has proved to be quite challenging. But, because we’ve understood the importance of this from the get-go and have hence made it one of our top priorities, we’re proud to say that our approach is very effective. The result is two-fold: happy clients and a motivated team.
That’s it for our posts from January - but, don’t worry, we’ll be back very soon with new content, and, if you happen to miss any of our upcoming blog posts, we’ll be doing the overview again in March. So, keep warm and stay tuned!
