rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Happy seventeenth birthday Drupal

Seventeen years ago today, I open-sourced the software behind and released Drupal 1.0.0. When Drupal was first founded, Google was in its infancy, the mobile web didn’t exist, and JavaScript was a very unpopular word among developers. Over the course of the past seventeen years, I’ve witnessed the nature of the web change and countless internet trends come and go. As we celebrate Drupal’s birthday, I’m proud to say it’s one of the few content management systems that has stayed relevant for this long. While the course of my career has evolved, Drupal has always remained a constant. It’s what inspires me every day, and the impact that Drupal continues to make energizes me. Millions of people around the globe depend on Drupal to deliver their business, mission and purpose. Looking at the Drupal users in the video below gives me goosebumps. Drupal’s success is not only marked by…

Depend less on each other

Separate the gearsDon’t grind together, glide past one another.Do you do a lot of waiting around at work? Not waiting because there’s nothing to do, but waiting on someone else to do something first so you can do something second?If so, you’re likely at a crazy company.Crazy companies are full of dependencies. Calm companies are full of independencies.Dependencies are tangled, intertwined teams, groups, or individuals that can’t move independently of one another. They’re often waiting for each other — for this person to do that so this other person can do this. For this team to finish that part so this other team can start on theirs.If you’re building airplanes or working an assembly line, fine. That’s probably required. But most companies these days aren’t, yet they still work like they are. One piece at a time, vs. many pieces at once, in parallel.Here’s an example. If your company makes an iOS app and an Android…

Thank You (2016 Edition)

Another year in the bag! As we do every year, I’d like to look back at the year by-the-numbers and see how we did. It’s also an opportunity to say how grateful I am to you all. All things considered, the web design and development community is a pretty great one. Lots of sharing and caring. I consistently enjoy working on this site and being a part of the sub-community that happens here. Statistics There were 77 million pageviews this year, up from 73 last year, making it an all-time record breaking traffic year again. The other numbers that Google Analytics coughs up are Sessions (56 million, up from 51 million) and Users (steady at 21 million). No significant peaks throughout the year. Steady as she goes. We published 442 posts and 43 pages (i.e. snippets/videos/almanac entries). I like that pace. We’re publishing content that has a pretty good shelf-life…

Testing Your Website for Mobile Devices

These days, you can do virtually anything on your mobile device. If you’ve ever been standing in a crowd of people, heard one of the generic iPhone ringers go off and watched about 14 different people pull out their cell phone, then you know what I’m talking about. Nielsen estimates that there are over 160 million smartphone users in the US. 160+.million.people. All surfing the web, and all probably playing Angry Birds. And that number is only going to get bigger.
