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.

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.

Decoupled Drupal: A 10,000-foot View

A few weeks ago, we began a blog series about a decoupled Drupal project we worked on with Elevated Third and Hoorooh. The project was for Powdr Resorts, one of the largest ski operators in North America. The first installment was A Deep Dive into a Decoupled Drupal 8 Project. Now we’ve got part two, and a radical change of altitude, from Andy Mead, Drupal Developer at Elevated Third: Decoupled Drupal: A 10,000-foot View. Check it out, and get Andy’s take on the requirements, the responsibilities, and some of the architectural considerations that go into a project like this. You’ll see how the technology driving Powdr’s digital presence starts to come together on a new platform powered by Drupal 8. And stay tuned for the next entry of this blog series, when Andy’s project partner Joe Flores details some specific Drupal technologies and techniques they used to power Powdr. Source:…

BeTheme Wants to Be the Only WordPress Theme You’ll Ever Need

Standalone WordPress themes simply don’t cut it anymore. In today’s environment, where clients demand instant project turnaround at rock-bottom prices, the race is on for a single WordPress theme that can do it all – at least for those clients who favor quick results and lower prices. This is where WordPress website builders come in and most of us have probably tried out Divi and some of the other more popular builders. However, the latest version of BeTheme – developed by Muffin Group – not only wants to be the only theme you need. It also wants to be the first WordPress website builder that shrugs off those slow loading times that can make them so frustrating.   BeTheme version 20: A faster website builder Version 20 of BeTheme rolled out on June 19 this year (2017) and there was one particular update that caught my eye. The theme package has now been reduced to…

My Time as a Basecamp Intern

As I started my fourth semester of university, I began to think about summer jobs. During my search, I found an application for an internship.“Basecamp is looking for interns for summer 2017”Being so early in my degree, I definitely didn’t think I was qualified, so I sent it along to some friends who I thought were great candidates. I didn’t intend to apply, but eventually gave in to a friend who told me that I should. I was hopeful, but I wasn’t really expecting it to go any further than the application.Two interviews and several weeks later, I somehow landed the internship.. . .I’m Megan and for the past twelve weeks, I have been the customer support intern at Basecamp.My ProjectBasecamp interns don’t fetch coffee. Being in a remote position would make that task pretty difficult. 😄Instead, we work on projects that matter to us. We get to contribute real improvements to the…

Acquia a leader in 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management

I’m on vacation this week, and I’ve been trying to disconnect and soak up time with my family. However, I had to make an exception to write a quick but exciting blog post, as Acquia was named a leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. This marks Acquia’s placement as a leader for the fourth year in a row, solidifying our position as one of the top three vendors in Gartner’s report. Acquia recognized as a top 3 leader, next to Adobe and Sitecore, in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management.Early in my career I didn’t fully understand or value the role of industry analysts like Gartner. Experience has taught me that strong analyst reports provide credibility and expose vendors to new markets and customers. It’s easy to underestimate the importance of this kind of recognition for Acquia, and by extension for Drupal.…

Why Putting Up a Website for Your Business Isn’t Enough Anymore

While putting up a website has always been considered a good marketing strategy, companies should know that maintaining a website is not enough to make a mark. Remember that a website is just an extension of your company site or office, and it is where your clients may know what products or services your company offers. Each company will opt to do the same — create a website and maintain it to ease transactions and to post updates about your company. The thing is, if every company does the same, how can you make your company stand out in a sea of competitors? Here are things you can do aside from putting up a website: Make use of social media Marketing strategies extend to social media because this is where a lot of people are. Aside from the fact that your company may be able to reach a wider population,…

Top 5 Lessons I’ve Learned Working with Drupal 8

Now that Drupal 8 is “production ready,” and agencies are ready to expand their capabilities by building in Drupal 8, clients are asking about it, and the community’s focus has shifted to developing for it. Drupal 8’s predecessor, Drupal 7, has been around since January 2011, which means that by late 2016 everyone working in Drupal was very familiar with the ins-and-outs of how Drupal 7 worked. Writing modules, using the hook system and preprocess functions, figuring out templating and theming quirks — it all became second nature to us. We’d mastered views and webforms, and some of us had written a couple of tricky migrations. In short, we’d all grown comfortable with Drupal 7 — and then along came Drupal 8. With the arrival of Drupal 8, many of those core components — on which we’d built many sites, and a living — have changed dramatically. We are now…

Drupal is Good?

Before joining Viget I built websites on Drupal for Congressmen and Fortune 500 companies. Those websites were good, and they’re visited by millions of people. I’ve been to Drupal Cons, I’ve been to Drupal meet-ups, and I’ve given presentations on Drupal topics. I wouldn’t have a career as a developer without Drupal, but I wouldn’t recommend Drupal. “So if not Drupal, then what?” It depends. Anyone who says they know the solution before they know the problem is lying, wrong, or guessing. At Viget, we can figure out what the best solution is to a problem. That solution may be a static website, a solution with Contentful, a Craft site, a custom-built CMS, or something we haven’t thought of yet. It depends on the project. We’ve written about this before. We have come up with reasons to go off-the-shelf or to go custom-built. We have compared off-the-shelf CMS’s and we…

7 Multi-screen Benefits For Web Designers

Website designers often prefer using two or three screens during programming. Of course one can work but working with multiple screens is a lot better. After experiencing multi-screen benefits, most designers will tell you that they feel strange or incomplete when they have to work with one screen. Why use multi-screen When we’re talking about multi-screen, it means having two or more physical monitors connected to one operating system. However, it could also mean having multiple devices such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop. In most cases, the use of phones and other portable devices allows designers to make quick notes or quickly look up something while still coding on their laptops or PCs. When using multiple screens running from different operating systems, it’s usually for the purpose of testing. The use of multiple screens isn’t limited to the web design industry. It is widely used in several sectors. One…

The reason why Acquia supports Net Neutrality

If you visit Acquia’s homepage today, you will be greeted by this banner: We’ve published this banner in solidarity with the hundreds of companies who are voicing their support of net neutrality. Net neutrality regulations ensure that web users are free to enjoy whatever sites they choose without interference from Internet Service Providers (ISPs). These protections establish an open web where people can explore and express their ideas. Under the current administration, the U.S. Federal Communications Commision favors less-strict regulation of net neutrality, which could drastically alter the way that people experience and access the web. Today, Acquia is joining the ranks of companies like Amazon, Atlassian, Netflix and Vimeo to advocate for strong net neutrality regulations. Why the FCC wants to soften net neutrality regulations In 2015, the United States implemented strong protections favoring net neutrality after ISPs were classified as common carriers under Title II of the Communications…
