On the last weekend in September 2017, I attended the PHPNW conference in Manchester on behalf of CTI Digital. This was something of a special occasion being the 10th anniversary of the conference, but also something of a sad one as it turned out to be the last conference for the foreseeable future.
Are you planning your next digital project, evaluating content management systems or existing end user of Drupal? For the 5th year I will be joining fellow agency peers and Drupal consultants gathering from across Europe contributing to CxO Day at DrupalCamp London, March 3-5 2017.
Featuring a varied programme of speakers, CxO provides vital opportunities to network, collaborate and learn from peers and Drupal business professionals alike. The event is designed to help you realise the true potential of Drupal and open source software through case study presentations, behind the scenes perspectives and lessons learned from experienced business owners and Drupal specialists.
Attracting representatives from the very best Drupal Agencies all having a wealth of knowledge and willingness to share (as is the open source way), this event is not to be missed. You will leave having made new connections, take with you valuable insights and forged a deeper understand as to the tangible benefits Drupal and open source bring.

‘There’s a module for that’ is a common refrain in the Drupal community and rightly so. The size and variety of the contributed module space is a big positive for any project considering Drupal. However, always jumping straight to a contributed module may not be the panacea you’re hoping for. So how do you decide whether to use that contributed module or build it yourself? Read on, rational reader.
This blog details my journey so far as an Apprentice Web Developer at CTI Digital.
Starting a new project is a time for change. A time to tear down your idols and re-evaluate everything. Or maybe, just, you know, have a closer look at whether you could do things a bit better this time?
I write bad code. So do you. So do our colleagues. Whether you realise it yet or not, the project you’re working on right now contains bad code. This isn’t as terrible as it first seems. The code behind a site doesn’t have to be perfect to provide value. In fact, the bad code might never cause a problem. It might only become a problem when new functionality is required later and the way something has been done makes it more difficult to add the required change. Situations like this are ripe for refactoring.
