Cracking The Code In France

We make a fascinating discovery about our France-based Director and Bletchley Park links

In something of a bizarre and fascinating twist of fate, it so happens that I live next to (and used to live in) the little French town of Uzès, in the middle of the French garrigues, surrounded by wild hills, even wilder pigs and grape vines.

Goodbye and Good Luck, Steve Hunton

After working with Code Enigma for the last year, our project manager Steve Hunton is about to move on, so we want to celebrate what a great member of the team he has been and wish him the best of luck for the future.

Steve joined us at Code Enigma just over a year ago and took charge of our project management processes. He was already familiar with running large I.T. projects although he had no experience of Drupal.

A Step Closer: Views In Paris

Code Enigma recently funded a sprint to help get the Views module in to core for Drupal 8. This is the 'how' and the 'why'. One of our developers, Alasdair, will be following up with the 'what'.

Let's Get Views In Core

Code Enigma are sponsoring a Views In Core sprint in Paris, France, from 26th - 28th August 2012.

Following on from Earl Miles’ request that people help fund the Views In Core initiative for Drupal 8, Code Enigma is proud to announce a Views In Core sprint, in Paris, straight after DrupalC

Why choose Drupal

As head of the project to redevelop the Said School of business website in Drupal, David Upton gave the keynote speech at Oxford Drupal Camp in June, explaining why they chose Drupal.

David has an impressive trackrecord in this sphere, having set up the original content managed site for Harvard Business School almost ten years ago.

A Scrum Master is NOT a Project Manager

For those new to Agile there is often an assumption made that the Scrum Master and the Project Manager are the same role. This is absolutely not the case. The two roles are very different and they each fit into approaches to projects that are wildly different. If anything, the Product Owner role is most closely aligned with the Project Manager role.

First Contrib Hour Of 2012

Firstly, Happy New Year to all our friends on the Gregorian calendar like us. We're guessing that's most of you, but perhaps not all.

Contrib Hour Report

Contrib Hour time again! (Well, actually it was yesterday, but we have a bit of a mad rush up to Christmas, so I'll keep it brief.) Alasdair

Piping A File In To MySQL

Our use case here is if you have a lot of data you want to insert in the MySQL - data that you might usually use the Drupal UI for, but there's so much of it you'd rather not if you can help it!

Contrib Hour Report

The roundup of what the Code Enigma team did in their weekly hour of maintaining their contributed Drupal modules.

That time again! Apologies for the dry title, but since this is a weekly event, doesn't seem much point in trying to dream up a snappy headline week in, week out. I guess I'll never be a columnist! So, without further ado, here's what the team did today:

Deployment Tools In Toulouse

Supporting information for the talk we gave at Drupalcamp Toulouse

A big thank you to everyone who joined the DrupalCamp Toulouse English track for my opening session, and I hope it was useful. Also, special thanks to Miguel Jacq for his input, both to the talk and to our systems in general.

Node references and relationships

Using Views to manipulate connections between content.

This is the first of a set of blogs that could be called quick (and sometimes dirty) solutions to everyday problems.  The plan is to provide examples and code snippets from actual projects as they come up.  In this first one, I'll look at a couple of examples of how to use views to manipulate nod

How Code Enigma does hosting

A look behind the scenes at our specially developed hosting system.

We'd been talking since we started trading (almost exactly a year ago, as it happens) about setting up something that would smooth our deployment process and allow us to offer solid, professional hosting to our clients.

When To Use Drupal

Just because we've chosen to specialise in the Drupal CMS as our main tool - that doesn't mean we recommend hitting every nail with it.

I'd like to start by quoting Jeff Goldblum's character from the 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park, Dr. Ian Malcolm, when he says to Richard Attenborough's park owner character, John Hammond:

More for your money

As technology advances, what you can get for your money takes great leaps forward.

I've just been tidying up the website for one of my previous employers and it got me thinking about how the price of stuff has changed in the last fifteen years.

Look, Drupal 7!

This is now my first Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade. Not without hitches, but all in all not too painful. Hope you like the new look.
