From the shift to online DrupalCons and their return to in person this year, to new releases of Drupal and the revisiting of old ones, it’s been a momentous time. Drupal 7 was originally scheduled to reach end of life (community support) in November of 2021.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/d6lts-wind-down-and-d7-extension-tim-lehnen" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 05/18/2022 - 04:26</span> Wed, 18 May 2022 11:26:28 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 431 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Jody Hamilton on founding an agency, and life beyond Drupal https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/jody-hamilton-founding-agency-and-life-beyond-drupal <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>As Drupal adoption significantly increased in the mid-2000s, a number of agencies formed to professionally support client needs around the creation of Drupal websites. One of these agencies was Zivtech, co-founded by <a href="https://www.drupal.org/u/jody-lynn" title="Jody Hamilton's Drupal.org profile">Jody Hamilton</a> and <a href="https://www.drupal.org/u/alex-ua" title="AlexUA">AlexUA</a>. Before Zivtech, Jody was a freelance developer in the early days of Drupal. As a company founder, she helped grow Zivtech into the dominant Drupal development company in the Philadelphia area. As part of our <a href="/20years" title="20 years of Drupal">20 years of Drupal</a> series of <a href="/tagteamtalks" title="Tag1 Team Talks">Tag1 Team Talks</a>, Managing Director Michael Meyers talks with Jody about her long experience as an intern, to developer, to agency co-owner.

Dawn has been an open source proponent through her career, from her first use of Drupal, to VP of digital strategy at Mediacurrent, and on to product manager for customer digital experience at Red Hat.

Angie has been at the center of the community nearly since her first contribution to the project, over a decade and a half ago. Between her ‘friendly helpful lioness’ persona, her mentorship, her development skills, and her commitment to hearing needs and finding solutions with consensus, she has been a cornerstone of ‘what the Drupal community is about’. This session of our <a href="https://tag1consulting.com/20years">20 years of Drupal</a> series features Angie, as she talks with Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers. Angie’s career spans from college where she was a Google Summer of Code participant getting her start in Drupal, to Lullabot, to Acquia where she was tasked with doing the work she’d been doing informally for years, to her current position at MongoDB. When Drupalists say “Come for the code, stay for the community”, Angie is one of the key people that have made the community what it is. --- <em>For a transctipt of this video, see <a href="/transcript-20-years-drupal-angie-byron" title="Transcript - 20 years of Drupal with Angie Byron">Transcript - 20 years of Drupal with Angie Byron</a>.</em> --- Photo by Shane Rounce on Unsplash</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/angie-byron-talks-history-and-drupal-community" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 11/17/2021 - 07:30</span> Wed, 17 Nov 2021 15:30:17 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 417 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Reducing complexity with Preact and HTM with Fabian Franz - Pt. 2 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/reducing-complexity-preact-and-htm-fabian-franz-pt-2 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>In part 1 of our talk with Tag1 Consulting’s VP of Software Engineering Fabian Franz, he and Managing Director Michael Meyers discussed the increasing complexity of software and website development.

As technology develops, some of the requirements for coding that had been necessary in the past has shifted to a need to understand tooling. While changing some parts of a website have become easy due to advancements in CSS tools and other helpers, those changes may be harder to deploy due to build processes. Instead of making a quick and simple change, you may need a full CI/CD process - trading speed for stability and repeatability.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/has-app-development-become-too-complex" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Mon, 11/08/2021 - 07:00</span> Mon, 08 Nov 2021 15:00:35 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 396 at https://www.tag1consulting.com David Strauss on 20 Years of Drupal https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/david-strauss-drupal-performance-and-development <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>In this installment of our 20 years of Drupal series, David joins Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers to talk about his experience in making contributions - not just upfront contributions like Bakery, but the ones he considers even more important - the behind the scenes performance enhancements and integrations that have helped make Drupal what it is today.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/david-strauss-drupal-performance-and-development" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 11/03/2021 - 06:47</span> Wed, 03 Nov 2021 13:47:00 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 411 at https://www.tag1consulting.com
