The Drupaler's guide to Behavior Driven Development (BDD)

As engineers and developers, we tend to be passionate about building something great, which Drupal 8 is perfect for doing. Drupal 8 gave us more viable options for testing with tools like phpunit, Behat, and phpspec to name a few. These have opened the doors to more easily achieve a Behavior Driven Development (BDD) work flow.

Styleguide + Prototype: Move Fast and Embrace Drupal

A static prototype, along with a styleguide, puts your ideas into the hands of your clients, users, and developers sooner, providing more time for iteration—ultimately resulting in a better product.

From Specification to Collaboration; one Agency's Move to Scrum

At Amazee Labs, we pride ourselves in producing awesome websites and making clients happy. In the past, we achieved this by sitting down with the client at project kickoff and laying the roadmap for how the project build would go. We specified everything, in day long discovery workshops. Then we'd tackle design, and finally, we would build. 

Clients were happy. Sites were pretty. But there was room for improvement.

Front-end performance and Drupal: Having your cake and taking a few bites

Front-end performance optimization is not necessarily complex, but it is specifc and always evolving. Browser specs change, mobile adoption rates are sky rocketing, and new technology is driving more intrictate (read: heavy) applications. Juggling the demands of the project versus the reality of the network is a battle that is best fought with good technique.

Drupal Performance Census - Lessons From Over 2500 Sites

"I've seen things you wouldn't believe," but every wise developer knows there's no shame in the performance game. The only way to learn is by doing.

This year we implemented New Relic's Pro-level APM service across thousands of websites. With access to the details of their performance at scale we can learn truths with statistical significance.

For example:

- How much faster is PHP7
- What statistical trends can we see in terms of how site performance shows up?
- What module(s) consistently show up with poor performance?
