The Blackfire.io profiling tool is now available to Code Enigma customers.
Blackfire.io is a profiling tool by the people behind Symfony, SensioLabs. We had a demo of this useful performance profiling tool some months back and decided it looked really good.
Code Enigma is changing the provider of it's infrastructure, moving all services to Pulsant.
We first met Pulsant in 2012, when we co-sponsored the excellent DrupalCamp North West (along with a bunch of other companies, of course).
A short tragedy on the demise of #AberdeenCloud.
UPDATE 1: #AberdeenCloud have made the platform available for 36 hours, as of last night, 30th June 2016. You can, for a short time only, get files and backups again. Sounds like the platform will be available until some time around Saturday lunchtime, 2nd July 2016.
Welcome aboard the board to Pascal Morin, senior developer and long-serving stalwart of Code Enigma.
Over the last few months the sitting board of Code Enigma (Steve Cowie and myself) have been doing a lot of thinking about the future of Code Enigma, and the process of moving past the startup stage to become a thriving company over the long-term.
Code Enigma will send three members of staff to the annual DrupalCamp Spain. This year, the event is held in Jerez de la Frontera, in the south of Spain.
As in previous years, Code Enigma will be present at the annual DrupalCamp Spain. This year's event will be held in southern Spain, more precisely, in Jerez de la Frontera.
We are rolling out an extra layer of security across all our production servers in the form of YubiKeys. This blog post explains what they are, how they work and why we're doing this, as well as presenting a short video presentation.
Two-factor authentication has become something of an IT buzz-phrase in recent years.
This blog briefly describes my first year of being a system administrator; how I was trained, what I've learnt and what I'd like to learn in the next year to name a few topics.
After many years honing our LAMP stack with Drupal, Code Enigma now offers the same stack and deployment tools optimised for WordPress.
For quite a few years now we've been offering professional hosting and tools for Drupal.
We'd been thinking for ages that we needed to completely change our company website. The whole team felt we had a site that failed to represent either what we do or who we are. After some false starts when we tried to do this in-house we decided to get help from an external design agency and turned to Andy Clarke at Stuff And Nonsense. In addition to a radical design overhaul, we also wanted to rethink how to author content within a content management system so that we would actually want to create new articles rather than thinking of it as a chore. In this article we explain the process from various perspectives: design, content-strategy, back-end and front-end development.
When we decided to update our company website, we wanted a site that shows our customers what we can do. With the help of Andy Clarke and the team at Stuff and Nonsense, we truly believe we've managed it.
A huge thank you (as ever) to the fantastic local and Drupal Association teams who have made this year’s DrupalCon Europe another roaring success.

Our technical director explains why Code Enigma is making the switch to Dreamweaver and what that means for our workflow
Developers are always arguing over which IDE is the best. Is it Sublime Text 2, Netbeans, PHP Storm, Vim, Eclipse - no, everyone hates Eclipse, except for me, it seems - but you know what I mean. Well, at Code Enigma we're sick of IDE autocracy and the religious wars of words that come with it.
Chris Maiden extolling the virtues of vim for the good people of DrupalCamp North West 2013

Freshbridge is being put to bed as Code Enigma's support and hosting products are brought back under the Code Enigma name
When we first came up with the idea of using the Freshbridge name for our hosting arm, we had some good reasons. We wanted to distance support and hosting from Code Enigma a little, create clear separation between a development shop and the support services. It felt like a natural break.
Full Drupal PaaS offering plus meaningful application support is finally available to everyone
UPDATE: This is an old blog, we are no longer #AberdeenCloud partners, though we will partner with 3rd party platform providers in order to provide more robust backup and security.
