Exploring Node.js

Gulp and Grunt, which were presented in our previous blog post both use Node.js. After Node.js Interactive Europe in the previous week, which was this year placed in Amsterdam, we decided that we will introduce you to Node.js. Especially that you will be better equipped with knowledge in front of the similar upcoming event in Austin, United States, which will be organized from November 29 to December 1.

Can you Grunt something better?

As we said in one of our previous blog posts, Grunt and Gulp get, accidentally or not, mixed up very often. The confusion is therefore present on more occasions that we would have liked or cared to admit. To avoid any misconceptions we promised that we will present you the differences between the two. And our promise lies here, in front of you.

Theming: “style it as if there is no JavaScript!”

In order to enhance user experience, almost all modern web sites use JavaScript these days. Displaying dynamic forms and other elements using jQuery or some other JavaScript library is quite common. Not only that, those libraries have been regarded standard for web for many years.

Group for Drupal

When I first got introduced to Organic groups for Drupal 7, I was struggling. Particularly with understanding the concept of having nodes that carry content, being used as an entity, for forming groups. It worked, but it wasn’t done intuitively. It just didn’t make any sense to me.

If you ever needed to deploy your Drupal 7 page from local environment to staging and further to production, you probably used Features to accomplish this task.

Staff Augmentation in Drupal Web Development

If you are using Drupal for your web development project and need additional assistance to help you with it, then it would be well worth looking at staff augmentation.
