Pass it on.

When your work and life excite you, it’s hard to keep it to yourself. Our blog is just part of a larger discussion we’re having on Twitter, Facebook, and in communities all over the web.

In our previous accessibility post, Choosing ARIA Landmarks: Get Your Semantics Right, we discussed how blueprints can help our developers implement the proper ARIA structure for their sites and applications. One of these blueprints is an ARIA overlay, which groups content on the wireframe and labels them with ARIA landmarks that should be included to maximize accessibility for all users. The availability of landmarks allows users of assistive technology to use a keyboard shortcut to quickly navigate through the page.

In a previous blog post, we explained Why We’re Decoupling Drupal. To learn more about how we decoupled one of our recent CMS projects, take a listen to “Content as a Service: What to know about decoupled CMS,” from our webinar with friends from Four Kitchens, on June 11th, 2015, hosted by Pantheon.  Pixo’s portion of the recording starts at 21:00.

Everyone loves Pantheon hosting’s time-saving one-click updates for Drupal and WordPress. If you are putting a site onto Pantheon that already has revision history in Git, then you likely want to keep your history. But if you create a Pantheon site from an existing Git repo, one-click updates will not be available.

If you’re about to embark on a CMS website project, now is the time to consider whether you might benefit from an approach that decouples your CMS from your website. In this post, we assess the pain points of tightly-coupled Drupal that led us to adopt a decoupled approach. Traditionally, building a Drupal site goes like this: Download and install Drupal.

Test early, test often When projects follow a waterfall pattern, you might gather requirements, create design mockups, build the functionality, and finally test the results. During testing, Quality Assurance (QA) files bugs for rest of the team to fix errors that could have been solved much earlier on if there had been more collaboration throughout these ‘phases’. This is highly inefficient and can extend the lifetime of a project.

With the release of iOS 8 Apple has finally added the ability for integration of third-party keyboards such as Swype and SwiftKey. This is a great thing, but as an iOS app developer it has the potential to complicate things. For example, Pixo recently began receiving complaints from users of our Vehicle Barcode Scanner app on iOS about issues they were having with the keyboard in our application.

The first and prevailing principle behind the Agile Manifesto says, “Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. ” There’s a lot of power packed into that sentence so let’s examine it a bit more closely. What is our prime directive? Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer (or client, in the consultancy case).
