In the past, hackers would generally either aim to deface a website or alter its content. At least you knew you’d been hacked! Today’s website vulnerabilities are usually exploited in more subtle ways, and you may not realise you have a problem until your emails and website become blocked because your domain has been blacklisted.

Many of our clients have heard of Agile for software development, but some are confused as to what it is. They know it involves building software in stages, which is normally I good idea, but that’s hardly makes it a distinctive approach.

A conversation we have with clients at the beginning of a website development project is about when the copy will be written. One common misconception is that you can design the website, with sections full of “lorem ipsum”, in the knowledge that this can be filled out later with the real copy.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Drupal at the Bridge. After an epically long development time, Drupal 8.0 was finally released in November 2015, representing a big shift in how the content management system works under the hood and the way developers must work with it.
