Okay. So, that’s old news. At the time of this writing, Drupal 8 (D8) has been Production-ready for just over two years. So, the question is no longer, “Is Drupal 8 ready for my Production site?” Instead, the question is, “When should I move to Drupal 8?” The ideal answer is - before you do any more major work to your existing site. (Of course, if you are readying to build a site from scratch then you should start with D8.)
More than just programming
Development is more than the act of programming. It's a cycle that begins with understanding your business, goals, and vision.
It's quite common for clients to have difficulty defining what they need. If that's you, relax! Once we gain a fuller understanding of your business and objectives, we subjectively work through the requirements of your project together.
We move into the next phase by analyzing requirements and designing the architecture. This includes everything from data modeling to URL strategies. This phase is analogous to creating blueprints for your business application.
This is the stage you would typically consider "development". We're writing code! All the effort spent on discovery and architecture allows for seamless implementation.
Projects often go directly to implementation, resulting in costly refactors and compromises that could have been avoided if properly planned. It is important to us that a project is well-planned with consideration for all information available at the time implementation begins.
Excellent user experience (UX) is a major part of what makes an online business interaction a customer service win. A multitude of companies and services are at the fingertips of anyone who owns a computer or smartphone - 24 hours a day. If a visitor has to spend a long time trying to utilize the information or services on a website... well, they just won’t. They will move on to a competitor whose website meets their needs.
Why is Website Development so Important for SEO?
Everyday, millions of people use search engines (such as Google and Bing) to find information. Most company websites exist because they have answers, solutions and services people need. How can a company increase the odds their information will be shown in search engine results pages (SERP)? If many websites offer the same information, the better-optimized site is more likely to get more visitors.
