Once upon a time the authoring experience (AX) in Drupal left much to be desired. Content editors using Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 glanced longingly across at WordPress editing screens wistfully hoping for some of that ease of use. The flexibility of Drupal from a content management standpoint was never in doubt, but we all just wished that when the edit screen looked so much better and behaved in a manner we were accustomed to when using other modern digital products and services. Well, finally the wait is over!
Thinkbean is a Boston-area based, Drupal-only development company with a very strong guiding, overarching principle: Build a purposeful web. We like to think of our work as building sites that do something, not just say something. That means we enjoy taking an integral role in working with clients to formulate and crystallize objective, clear and concise business goals. Then, architecting and building the application to achieve those goals.
As is probably the case with development shops of any sort, we’re very proud of our programmers and we believe they are some of the most capable people in the business. As is probably not the case with many development shops, our belief is evidenced by the fact a significant amount of our business comes in the form of ‘rescue projects’. That is, many of our clients initially come to us because their then-current vendor’s skill set has been exhausted and experts are needed to bring the project to a successful completion.
We don’t try to be all things to all clients. We are one thing - Drupal experts. Many development shops service multiple platforms. We don’t. We believe Drupal projects require Drupal experts if they are to be completed properly, efficiently and successfully. We’re very proud of the fact Thinkbean is always the last stop for our clients. Never do our clients have to go to other Drupal development shops to get the service they need. We aim to keep things that way.
This library is invaluable to us at Thinkbean as it allows us to integrate into our internal Symfony based devops application which among other things, we use to monitor application status and health.
