Firewise USA's paper application process existed for 15 years but, in 2016, the Firewise team decided to bring the process online. They chose to build this process on top of Drupal 8.
Since moving to Drupal, the Wildfire Division of the National Fire Protection Association has streamlined its processes - enabling it to more efficiently deliver on their program’s goal of teaching people how to adapt to living with wildfires and take community action to prevent loss of property.
Join us to discuss the challenges and rewards of bringing a paper process online as a Drupal 8 web app. Topics we’ll discuss:
- Leveraging an agile philosophy to respond quickly to change, collaborate across disciplines and stakeholder groups and get to a working product in as little amount of time as possible.
- Balancing effective deliverables with shared understanding to produce working software that meets the organization’s needs.
- Organizational hurdles to overcome when adding structure and bringing an established paper application process online.
