The Drupal Process
North Studio uses an Agile methodology along with industry-standard practices such as browser and unit testing, Git repository management, and Kanban board tasking.
We conduct automated and developer code reviews throughout every development project. We also employ a robust project management process that includes regular client check-ins, internal lessons-learned meetings, and a defined process-improvement system to ensure our workflow is optimized across all projects and clients.
Following the sunset announcements for Drupal 7 Core and Drupal 8 Core, many organizations are considering how to move their existing Drupal systems to Drupal 8 and eventually Drupal 9. North Studio conforms to Drupal agency development practices for migrations, using Migrate API and the Drupal hook system to ensure that content is migrated successfully and in line with industry standards. In addition, we work with our clients to identify what timelines are right for their organization and the benefits of a carefully choreographed move to later versions of Drupal. We also carefully review your existing system and identify potential pain points, such as mapping between module versions and migrating custom code between systems.
