The Bluespark Blog
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 2009 (Bluespark founding) we’ve been using Drupal and attending DrupalCons. This year, about half of the Bluespark team will be at DrupalCon Baltimore. And we’re proud to support the event — and community — as silver sponsors.
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!)
It wasn't really farfetched to think Autumn might find her way into technology because she grew up around computers — her father is a software developer. It was when she was fourteen, though, that her own interest really took hold.
She started playing with HTML and CSS through games and forums and just kept going. She joined developer networks and began building relationships in the community.
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.
In 2016, we made a conscious effort to grow — both with clients and employees.
Because our development process is focused on prioritization and phases, we require a lot of work managing projects to ensure they start and end successfully.
Last week our team was in Marrakech, Morocco for a company retreat.
Since we're a company with international employees and no office, it makes sense to meet ... well, anywhere, really. We collaborate and communicate every single day, but we don't get a chance to go out to dinner and chat in person as much as some coworkers might.
