CEBIT - we rock update automation!

We will be part of the great Innovation and Digitalization Business Festival “CEBIT” next week in Hanover, Germany.

Max, Joe and I will attend this fair which will welcome over 300.000 attendees, looking forward to great talks and meetups.

 

You can meet us at our booth C30/6 in Hall 027, where we will talk about update automation for dependency and package manager files. Besides Drop Guard, our Drupal update automation platform, we are presenting our next smart tool for you to automate your update pipelines beyond Drupal based systems.

 

Drop Guard’s successful Showdown with SA-CORE-2018-002

A lot of Drop Guard users faced their first Highly Critical SA-CORE-2018-002 update within the PSA-2018-001 release last week. We interviewed a bunch of them and want to share Drop Guard’s performance with you. This means that we will share its achievements, its flaws and its “should have performed better”.
 

The Good - hard data about Drop Guard's victory

Until today, Drop Guard performed 7370 updates for Drupal agencies and their clients all around the globe.

Here’s How You Can Speed Up Your Drupal Website

Speeding up your Drupal site is not that hard. Following some quick steps can ensure optimum speed for your Drupal website. Read this article to find out. A guest post by Hassan Raza from Cloudways Hosting. 

 

Drupal, as we all know is an immensely popular and customizable CMS, in fact many refer to it as a CMF. However, when building a site with a CMS like Drupal, speed of the website is often overlooked. Although Drupal 8 is pretty well-optimized out-of-the-box, some practices tend to slow down the site.

DrupalCon's 5 top DevOps & Automation sessions

With the end of September, DrupalCon Vienna is also coming closer and we can't wait to welcome you to our booth #S08. As a Silver sponsor of the event, we'll have the chance to present continuous update management to you on site. But - we also can't wait to learn a lot from other agencies and attendees! At DrupalCon there's always a chance to learn something new, be it a whole new approach or a connecting piece of unidentified issues - by asking but most of all by listening.

 

Money follows value

Manuel, our CEO, and I spent our last Thursday and Friday on the European Drupal Business Days in Frankfurt, Germany. The event was the third of its sort, attracting CEOs, Marketing Managers and other influencer. As the event title might tell in advance, it was a business and marketing tailored session schedule throughout.

After a kicking Keynote from Jeffrey aka Jam, Manuel just jumped on the “sell value, not Drupal code” train with his session “recurring revenue in the Drupal business”. Sure, we all know the power of "content first" but do we really adjust our thoughts and steps to this mantra? I don't think so. Value entails revenue. Not the other way around.

We made a Splash!

Let’s see where to start first. There will be a lot of “first” today in this post, that’s really exciting and shows that 2017 started quite encouraging. The Splash Awards took place yesterday in Hamburg - it’s the first time that Germany hosted this Drupal event. The first Splash Awards ever were organized by the Dutch Drupal Foundation in the Netherlands back in 2014 (thank you for encouraging all other countries!).

1..2..3 - continuous security! A business guide for companies & individuals

A lot of Drupal community members, who are interested in or already use Drop Guard, were waiting for this ultimate guide on continuous security in Drupal. Using Drop Guard in a daily routine improved update workflows and increased the efficiency of the website support for all of our users. But there were still a lot of blind spots and unexplored capabilities such as using Drop Guard as an "SLA catalyser". So we've stuck our heads together and figured out how to share this information with you in a professional and condensed way.
