Demystifying Composer

Presenter: David Hernandez, Manager of Learning Contributions, FFW
Date: Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 10:25 AM EST

We've started embracing the world of Composer, the PHP dependency manager. However, it has become one of the biggest pain points reported by Drupal 8 developers. Once using Composer with Drupal, you can no longer simply download zip files to manage your project.

I will go over Composer basics; starting from scratch, and going step-by-step through a full project build. I will also go over why this has been so difficult with Drupal.

Join Us for Good: How Drupal, WordPress, Atomic Design and internal APIs Came Together in a AA Compliant Financial Services Website
Presenters: Ray Saltini & David Hernandez
Date: Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 11:35 AM EST

Eastern Bank was struggling with a number of micro sites that had been built up and not maintained in response to one-off campaigns. The team needed a platform that would allow them to quickly build out marketing initiatives without expanding their site infrastructure.

Join us for this case study to learn how the FFW team:

  • Developed a multi-site solution to easily spin up, deploy, and manage micro sites for specific campaigns or marketing initiatives
  • Designed and implemented a component-based architecture to re-use common display widgets and features across the site and micro sites
  • Integrated with Eastern Bank’s internal APIs, to connect to a wide variety of digital tools that the Eastern Bank team uses to serve their community
  • Created a fully ADA compliant site according to WCAG 2.0A and AA compliance codes
  • Built enhanced security and testing features to ensure that users are always able to easily and securely log on
