Go Overseas provides a service to connect people with meaningful travel programs, such as volunteer, study, or teaching engagements. Hook 42 was selected for their Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 migration project, requiring both backend and frontend development. We also ran SEO health checks and continue to work with Go Overseas on performance monitoring and ongoing improvements to their site and architecture.

Hook 42 Loves Drupal

We pride ourselves on being active members of the Drupal community, and we bring that expertise to each project. Hook 42 is one of the top contributing companies on Drupal.org, and because of this we know both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 inside out. Hook 42 and many of our developers maintain public Drupal projects related to security, performance, and user interface improvements. Additionally, our team members participate in many of the Drupal 8 and Drupal 9 core discussions that help drive the future of the Drupal project.

Beyond helping build the software, our team is actively involved in the growth of Drupal in many ways. We attend and help organize many community events. We provide events with training sessions on the latest technologies and presentations that share our experiences working with Drupal and other technologies. We enjoy every aspect of the Drupal community.

Custom Drupal Solutions for Business

Hook 42 has decades of experience developing websites and applications with Drupal. From simple websites to intranets and “ambitious digital experiences”, we are experts in tackling a wide range of complex and simple problems -- and we enjoy the uniqueness that comes with each. Hook 42 Drupal developers are experts in writing secure Drupal modules, performant Drupal themes, and creating scalable content solutions that can grow alongside your business.

Understanding the benefits and pitfalls of working with an open-source product is very important. Weighing those options against your goals and business needs is perhaps the most important part of any successful project. At Hook 42, we make responsible decisions about the technologies that shape your business today to help ensure your future growth.

We take the responsibility of being a true and valuable partner to your business very seriously. You can rely on our experience and dedication to quality for any aspect of your Drupal project.

I’ve hired Hook 42 for three different projects in the last six years, and in each case the quality, thoroughness, helpfulness, dedication, knowledge, and perspective that they brought to the project has been a game changer. Next time I look for a Drupal project partner, I will look to Hook 42 first.

Want to Know More About Hook 42 and Drupal?

Whether you’re looking for a reliable development team, need help determining if Drupal is a good fit for your project, or just want to learn more about Drupal and our community in general, reach out and say hi! We're always excited to work with people and businesses to help ensure they have the best Drupal experience possible. Together we can go far.

Being Drupal Adjacent

One of the major objectives of Drupal 8 is the desire to “get off the island.” Drupal opened its doors to using and contributing to a broader ecosystem of projects instead of replicating functionality in Drupal. We now see tools like Twig and various Symfony components in Core. Contributed modules are also able to integrate projects and Software Development Kits (SDKs). For example, Password Strength, Digital Ocean, and Hubspot API integrate through Drupal’s native use of Composer. This philosophy helps those of us that more closely identify as “Drupal Adjacent.”

Hook 42 Presentations at Stanford Drupal Camp

The Hook 42 team had a great time at Stanford Drupal Camp this weekend.  Kristen and Aimee presented two sessions each and four other members of our team attended, Lindsay, K2 (Kristin), Marc, and Marc's 15 year old son Dean.  It was the first Drupal camp experience for the extended team and they enjoyed the great topics, beautiful facilities, and the welcoming community.  Many thanks to the Stanford Drupal community for hosting such a great event!

Drupal Peer Review and Testing with Pantheon Multidev

We use Pantheon for most of our projects and it is quite wonderful to use. In particular, the multidev feature provided by the Business+ level hosting is a "must have" for development teams. Not only do you get the standard dev => test => live development workflow, you also get separate sandboxed dev sites for each of your developers to work in.
