We're always excited to participate and support DrupalCon each year, and Baltimore was no different! We met fantastic individuals, attended great talks, and ate delicious crab.
Throughout the week, two members of the Bluespark team presented at DrupalCon Baltimore. Here are recordings of those presentations:
Since 2015, Designing for Digital has brought librarians, academics, designers, developers, strategists, and innovators together in Austin, Texas, to share and collaborate.
Bluespark has attended the conference the previous two years but this is the first year members of our team are presenting.
(This is also the first year our President and Founder Michael Tucker, is calling himself an official resident of Austin. He just moved there!)
The most important measure of an ecommerce site is its sales. If people put items into their shopping cart, go through checkout, and pay, that's a success. If they abandon the cart without buying, something has gone wrong. Not only is that a missed sale, it could be a potential customer who was too frustrated to come back again.
We're excited to announce that Obermeyer, the Colorado-based ski company, released its new enterprise ecommerce website on Drupal 8 and Drupal Commerce 2.x. The site is the first ecommerce project to launch on Drupal 8.
Recently, Bluespark UX Strategist Mark Dodgson was invited to speak with Michael Schofield, frontend librarian and host of the LibUX podcast, a show focused around design, development, and user experience in libraries and higher-ed web. This particular episode focuses on user experience and Bluespark's proven design and development process.
The B2B and B2C buying processes are different, and they’re often not created equal. Retail companies sometimes offer a great digital shopping experience for their consumers and a secondary — and less suitable — option for their wholesalers.

So you’ve got a great idea. Spent months thinking about it. Sold the idea to internally key stakeholders. Grabbed the attention of the right people, organized a team and managed to get funding. You’ve selected your agency and have gone through a discovery process and are ready to design out the idea. Now what?
Universities and libraries will be the focus this year in a couple focus talks we are hosting at our booth this year. We'll be highlighting some great ways to get buy-in from multiple stakeholders, ways to reduce the cost of user testing, and tips on bringing a digital library online. Add these short coffee talks to your calendar!
