“Seriously I know how difficult it is to do a big change like this and deliver on time in a totally seamless fashion. Because of the brand name change we had no flexibility as it was timed with press stuff, it was very important to us.

So I really appreciate your combined efforts in making it work out.

….And this why I continue to be your happy customer for so long”

On this project the client wanted a rich eCommerce site with multilingual support. Modern and engaging designs were provided by Thinking Juice who we would work alongside as the project progressed. In addition to the actual build of the eCommerce site we also had to think about how we would integrate with the client's backend ERP system, System 21.

Speed of delivery was a key requirement with this project and we managed to complete the entire build in less than two months!
On this project we made extensive use of modern frontend technologies. The style was all nicely written using SASS to keep our style sheets nice and tidy. We worked with the design agency Thinking Juice who drew up the initial designs which we would then use to drive our frontend development.

Once we had all the page elements themed up to match the design it was then necessary to add a bit of jQuery magic to make the user experience much more engaging. This applied from major elements such as the drop down menus right the way through to navigation between elements on the same page using a scroll effect.

In order to give the client maximum control over how their content pages rendered we used a system of 'tiles' which are essentially distinct reusable elements that could be used to build up an entire page. As each of these elements has its own associated style to control how it looks and feels this approach meant that the client could just focus on adding in the content and the site would take care of how this got rendered to the end user to ensure things are nice and consistent across the site.

As an eCommerce site it was really important on this project that we gave maximum control to the end user to allow them to find products that they might want to purchase. A key part of this was to create a product comparison tool which would allow users to select a number of different Roberts products for a side by side comparison.

From the product search page users can filter down their search criteria using a number of different facets and when they're ready they can select a number of different products to compare. Once they have selected the products they want to compare the user is taken to a a page which renders the selected products side by side for easy comparison.

Drupal 7, 8 and 9 - When to Migrate

2nd Jan 2019

Anyone familiar with the Drupal core development lifecycle will know that presently the Drupal community supports two major versions at any one time: the current major release and its immediate predecessor. This means that at ComputerMinds we are currently helping our clients support and develop both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 sites. So the obvious question that we get asked is ‘when is it time to upgrade’?

Peer Review

2nd Jan 2019

At ComputerMinds we like to think that we’re all pretty good at what we do; however, nobody is perfect and this is why we always ensure that our code is properly peer reviewed as part of our quality assurance process.

Peer review is literally just what the name implies; we work together to review each other’s code to make sure that it all makes sense. This approach means that we’re able to spot obvious mistakes before they become a problem. It also has the huge advantage of allowing us to transfer knowledge between our team on a day-to-day basis.
