Web Accessibility Tips for Developers


Creating the code that makes a website accessible to all visitors doesn’t have to be as time-consuming or resource-intensive as you might think. All you need to do is follow some simple steps that require a little extra time and effort. But these efforts will ensure that your Web content is at the fingertips of everyone — including those with blindness and low vision, deafness, and other disabilities.
It’s up to both the developer and the client to achieve site accessibility. Although they usually work together in the planning and later stages of website creation, a developer and client also... Meer

Building a great remote team, helping clients & giving back


The European Acquia Global Support team had an onsite week in Reading the week after Drupal Camp London 2015. I got the chance to see a number of them there and sit down with two of my friends from "Supporta!"–Daniel Blomqvist and Henk Beld. We talked about remote teams and helping others succeed with Drupal, while also paying it back/forward by sharing and teaching what they learn and what they know.

Making a global team a team

Daniel and Henk shared some of the things they do and use on a daily basis to keep a "follow the sun"... Meer

Security in the Cloud: Why Open Source is the Best Choice

This is the first of a series of security-related postings, which Acquia will compile into a free ebook. In this entry, we’ll look at the perennial question: Is Open Source software inherently more secure than commercial closed-source software?
Securing applications is an ongoing process. It’s a continuum that requires vigilance.
Application security begins during the requirements analysis stage of the Software Development Lifecycle, and must be nurtured throughout the life of the application to be successful.
With Drupal properly configured and managed, it is as secure and reliable as any... Meer

Understanding the Data Behind Personalization

If you want to increase online conversions and customer loyalty, you have to get a clear handle on your target market: who they are and what they want. And the best way to do that is by collecting the relevant data to personalize the buying experience. Having up-to-date demographic, psychographic, and behavioral data will help you send consumers valuable content, do more effective A/B testing, improve click-through rates,... Meer

Four Final Questions You Should Ask Your Drupal Cloud Provider


You know how when you're buying a car, and the questions just keep on coming? And the salesperson keeps making roundtrips to the manager's desk?
It's kind of like that when you're considering where to host your website. There's always time for more questions. It's one less surprise later on.
That's why I keep adding to my list.
It started, you may recall, with just five questions. A week later, I added five more.... Meer

How will you tackle your many site problems?

As my colleague Martin Eley wrote about last week, it’s a reality of the digital age that large companies have many, many web sites. Several small companies do as well of course, but the ecosystem of web sites under a corporate umbrella explodes as companies grow and the brands they manage, the number of regions they operate in, and the number of customers they serve expands. And as companies with this predicament have found, having many sites creates “many site problems” and not solving these... Meer

Closing the Deal: What Matters Most in a Purchase Decision?

“So I buy it. The most perfect little cardigan in the world. People will call me the Girl in the Gray Cardigan. I’ll be able to live in it. Really, it’s an investment.”
~ Rebecca Bloomwood, Confessions of a Shopaholic
For Rebecca Bloomwood, the path from fauxsumer to consumer was short, nonexistent even. Every item was a necessity and credit card bills were something meant for the trashcan. For those of us who live in the real world, however, the decision to purchase anything typically requires much more... Meer

Build Your Drupal 8 Team - Skills for Tech, Non-Tech, and "Bridge" Members


Getting your hands on new technology is the best part of being a developer -- playing around with it, and trying out cutting-edge concepts is challenging.
But trying to meet deadlines with new tech, especially if you don't understand it fully? That can mean lots of late nights and weekend work when you'd rather be doing something else.
Fortunately, working with Drupal 8 builds on core skills your team already has. Augmenting their existing knowledge with additional skills to use the new functionality of Drupal 8 will help your team deliver that first project successfully.
The new release... Meer

Is your Drupal project stalled?
Perhaps you don't know exactly what's wrong, but for some reason the project is just stuck.
You're eager to take the next step -- if only you knew what that was. If you find yourself in this situation often enough, you might want to consider hiring a technical project manager.

Selecting Drupal Modules: What Do You Need?


In a recent webinar one participant asked about inline images in Drupal 7. I pointed to a tutorial we have here on Acquia.com, and mentioned the "Insert" module.

That sparked another question: "The name Insert doesn't scream 'picture handling.' How can you find the right modules?"

Modules in Drupal (sometimes called "plugins" or "extensions" in other CMS's) extend the base functionality with contributed or custom code. The naming convention with Drupal modules is "short and sweet." This makes them easy to reference and... Meer

Klanten willen gepersonaliseerde content en data-driven commerce

Contextualisering om persoonlijke content en aanbiedingen te leveren via alle mogelijke kanalen resulteert in een betere klantervaring.
Digitalisering heeft alles veranderd in de wereld van online commercie. Het personaliseren van de digitale ervaring wordt niet langer als ‘extraatje’ gezien, maar wordt verwacht. Als een klant de website eerder heeft bezocht, verwachten ze herkenning bij een volgend bezoek en een beleving op maat.
Een onderzoek door Janrain laat zien dat de meerderheid van de consumenten – 75 procent- het leuk vinden wanneer merken een persoonlijk bericht of aanbod sturen.... Meer
