Website migration projects are full of promise. Clients can look forward to a shiny new platform that will do away with all the pain points found in their legacy systems, introducing a world of new opportunities. At least that's the ideal, but how do you ensure a website migration project will live up to that promise?
Choosing a platform is a big issue for many clients as it's the start of a new, long term relationship in which they're staking a significant investment. They want longevity, security, low cost of ownership and ease of use, combined with minimal disruption when the site launches.
Successful migrations will leave the door open to future development, a happy client, and a thriving platform. In this session we'll talk about pitching Craft to clients, benchmarking performance pre and post-migration and managing client expectations. While the talk will reference tools and approaches to migrate content into Craft, the focus will be on managing a migration project rather than development techniques.
Feed Me is commonly used for migrating data to Craft CMS, particularly migrating content from other CMS solutions. However, Feed Me has some powerful features that allow anyone to create a gateway to push content on demand. In this talk we will explore how to use AWS Lambda (and some other popular free tools like Airtable) to create a serverless middleware that will allow us to automate the process of feeding content to Craft CMS. We will first go over Waveguide's case study, and show the implementation that enables an ultra fast flow to push design examples to Waveguide's backend (Craft CMS). After exploring this case, we will briefly explain other potential uses cases like pushing content reactively in response to events like a new post in social media or even triggering a post to Craft from a physical IoT button.
The ancient philosophy of Stoicism, in practice, promises a life of tranquility. Modern Stoicism has gained popularity, thanks to authors like Ryan Holiday, and is best described as a counterintuitive recipe for a peaceful life.
In light of the recent emphasis on mental and emotional health in the tech industry, I'd like to share the benefits of Stoic practices as a pattern for living that works. We'll explore the four Stoic virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance and relate them to our daily lives as tech workers in the modern age. Everyone (not just developers) will take home a few nuggets of wisdom for a peaceful, happy life at home and work.
