Drupal 8 Website Launched

Axelerant migrated Humberstone International Inc. from Drupal Gardens to Drupal 8 this month. Ultimately the goal was to enable mobile responsiveness and this was done via bootstrap, hosted in Pantheon, using vanilla Drupal.

The website consists of mostly static content showcasing client achievements along with a customized contact form to generate leads from the website.

This migration marks the beginning of a platform for Humberstone that puts user experience first while simultaneously accomplishing real business needs.

Hussain to Present in Bangalore

One of our team members will be presenting on composer based workflow for Drupal.

“Composer is now the standard of building PHP based applications. Learn how composer can help you easily build Drupal websites, which are not only quick and easy to setup, but also automate retrieving PHP components and libraries. Almost every sophisticated Drupal module now uses PHP components and if you are building those dependencies manually, you are wasting your time. Learn the Composer way.” – Hussain

Each session should take one hour each with questions and answers. Sessions will be followed with lightning talks, discussions on specific problems, and more.
