Turning complexity into clarity.

ThinkShout: Pixel Perfect Project Foundations: Part One of a Series

I used to draw a lot. I never thought of myself as a good artist, but I felt like I had a knack for replicating images, so I turned into a game. I’d say, “let’s see if I can take this small cell from my favorite comic and blow it up into a larger version of itself.” Take this for example:

Alita as drawn by Amy

It came as no surprise to me when I became obsessed with creating responsively pixel perfect websites that represented our talented design team’s work precisely. There was a problem, however. Up until recently front end developers didn’t have a great way to create responsive grids, so we used the tools that we had readily available to us. For example, if you intend to bake chocolate chip cookies with carob, the result is going to be wildly different than if you used chocolate chips! (Carob is never a replacement for chocolate, I don’t care what you say…)

Let’s review our options in...

Recreate a Wordpress site and all pages/posts with a plugin or CPanel access - Upwork

My client has a site that is hosted on Pronto, which does not allow for the addition of plugins or give him Cpanel access.

What we would like is to find someone to recreate the site as it currently looks.  Move all 687 blog posts and 29 posts. 170 images

He owns the domain, has access to his domain registration and would like to host the account himself.  

The works well for him now, so keeping the design as close to how it looks now is the goal.  

Looking for a professional to take on the job, recreate the site, and move all the content to the new host.  

I need a quote for the job, and how long it will take to do the job.  The site is on Wordpress, and is not a complicated design.

Spinning Code: Waterfall-like Agile-ish Projects

In software just about all project management methodologies get labeled one of two things: Agile or Waterfall. There are formal definitions of both labels, but in practice few companies stick to those definitions particularly in the world of consulting. For people who really care about such things, there are actually many more methodologies out there but largely for marketing reasons we call any process that’s linear in nature Waterfall, and any that is iterative we call Agile.

Failure within project teams leading to disasters is so common and basic that not only is there a cartoon about it but there is a web site dedicated to generating your own versions of that cartoon (http://projectcartoon.com/).

Among consultants I have rarely seen a company that is truly 100% agile or 100% waterfall. In fact I’ve rarely seen a shop that’s close enough to the formal structures of those...

Dries Buytaert: How NBC Sports supports the biggest media events online

Many of Acquia's customers have hundreds or even thousands of sites, which vary in terms of scale, functionality, longevity and complexity.

One thing that is very unique about Acquia is that we can help organizations scale from small to extremely large, one to many, and coupled to decoupled. This scalability and flexibility is quite unique, and allows organizations to standardize on a single web platform. Standardizing on a single web platform not only removes the complexity from having to manage dozens of different technology stacks and teams, but also enables organizations to innovate faster.

A great example is NBC Sports Digital. Not only does NBC Sports Digital have to manage dozens of sites across 30,000 sporting events each year, but it also has some of the most trafficked sites in the world....
