Drupal 7’s end of life is on the way. November 2022 seems like it’s a long way off, but when you’re upgrading enterprise software, it’s closer than you think. As Drupal 7’s long life comes to the end of official community support, businesses are faced with the question of what to do next - upgrade, migrate, or maintain their existing sites. Each of these options comes with its own expenses and considerations. In this Tag1 Team Talk, Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers talks with Senior Engineer and Project Lead Scott Hadfield. Learn about the business Scott launched with his wife Sam Marx, https://hellopretty.co.za/ (Hello Pretty). Find out why they’re staying on Drupal 7 and joining the Extended Support (D7ES) program. Hello Pretty provides opportunities for South African handcrafters to display and sell their work, enabling these crafters to reach a worldwide audience.

Has app development become too complex? A discussion with Fabian Franz - Tag1 TeamTalk
14:39Over time, web development has gotten more complex in some ways, and less in others. As technology develops, some of the requirements for coding that had been necessary for the past have shifted to a need to understand tooling. While changing some parts of a website has become easy due to advancements in CSS tools and other helpers, those changes may be harder to deploy due to build processes. Instead of making a quick and simple change, you may need a full CI/CD process - trading speed for stability and repeatability. Join us for this Tag1 Team Talk with Tag1 VP of Software Engineering Fabian Franz as he talks with Managing Director Michael Meyers about the complexities of development today. Fabian’s extensive experience with development, especially in the performance and scalability space, gives him a specialized insight into how changes in tooling have changed how developers work and create applications.
