Getting Started With Developer Environments

Getting started in Drupal, WordPress, or Backdrop website development can have a steep learning curve involving a lot of different parts of the system. Not only do we need to learn how to edit the code for the website, but we need a place where we can safely practice and make mistakes. We need to be able to run websites on our own computers, and we need good tools (applications) that can help us learn. That collection of tools is commonly called a “local development environment”, and this blog post is meant to provide an overview of some tools we like to use here at Hook 42.

Reflections of Drupal Camp Chattanooga 2019

For years, community members from Chattanooga talked about their local camp. These community members routinely support other camps, through attendance, volunteerism, and by giving talks. It was our time to return the favor.

Hook 42 not only sponsored the event, but delivered a training and two sessions. From our team Jonathan and Adam attended, and they really enjoyed the time there.

All Aboard To Chattanooga

Hook 42 is headed to Tennessee for our next community event. Not only have we proudly sponsored Drupal Camp Chattanooga, you'll also find us doing a Gatsby.js training as well as giving talks about topics we hold near and dear to our hearts. Come say hello if you're there.

Community, Development and Leadership at DrupalCon 2019

It’s been almost a month since DrupalCon 2019. We can’t believe how time flies! While we were there, we had a variety of things going on at many different levels. Just as fast as the time since DrupalCon has flown past us, our time in Seattle felt like a tiny blip.

Did Someone Say Drupaldelphia? Philly Philly!

Hook 42 is heading to Philadelphia for Drupaldelphia. Not only are we proud to be sponsoring such a wonderful event, we’re excited to announce that our very own Adam Bergstein will be giving two separate talks this year.
Philly! Philly!

Migrations and Upgrades

To upgrade or to migrate, that is the question. However, there is not a one-size-fits-all answer to that question. Your project goals will ultimately determine the best course of option. After an initial discussion with the Hook 42 team, we can properly assess the options and provide a best course of action for your team.
