Meet the YubiKey

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.

The IDE Of Dreams

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.

Drupal 8 Might Be Useful

A write-up of the talk on Drupal 8 and the site building features in core, from DrupalCon Prague.

Might be useful? What kind of a title is that? Surely it *must* be useful??

Building A Fast VM

See Greg's talk on building a fast, Drupal-optimised virtual machine for yourself

I didn't actually blog this at the time, but now the video is finally online, here's my talk from DrupalCamp London earlier this year on configuring a VM, quickly and easily, to get great performance on a low budget for your Drupal website:

Whatever Happened To Design And Build?

Greg Harvey muses on his shift in perspective as a web developer over the last decade

I don’t know about anyone else, but when I first started developing websites full time as a career, for an advertising agency in London at the start of the ‘noughties’, it was all about getting a design, chopping it up into pages, coding them up, FTPing them somewhere and walking

Is your designer really web ready?

For some bizarre reason, while most design specialisms are respected, everyone thinks they can be a web designer. This makes it difficult for clients to sort the wheat from the chaff. Greg Harvey explains...

When I studied as an architect our tutors were clear. Architecture is a creative profession, but you’re not all going to be Zaha Hadid.

A Great Case For Drupal

Our case study for the highly successful Le Figaro Bourse project is now live on Drupal.org

We're very proud to publicise our involvement in the Le Figaro Bourse project, undertaken in Drupal for Société du Figaro, the major French newspaper group.

Code Enigma Rebrands Support And Hosting

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.

Code Enigma And #AberdeenCloud Join Forces

People, People, People...

Running a distributed team throws up certain HR challenges. This post goes into more detail about those and how we resolve them.

Lining Up For Frontend United

Europe's major annual Drupal Design event is almost upon us - Code Enigma can't wait!

London plays host once again to an awesome Drupal event. Frontend United (formerly Drupal Design Camp) follows hot on the heels of the fabulously successful DrupalCamp London.

Caching Gone Wrong

We all want to make Drupal run faster, but meddling with things you don’t understand can get you into big trouble. Here’s why.

For the uninitiated, the term ‘caching’ in computing is the idea of saving a copy of something that usually needs to be generated, in its complete form, to avoid generating it again later. This happens on many levels in a typical computer system.

Keeping Connected

How Code Enigma uses the Internet to manage a distributed team.

In our previous post in this distributed working series we introduced some of the commercial reasons why we have a distributed model here at Code Enigma.

Spread About

The pros and cons of running a distributed team.

Over a series of blog posts we’d like to explain how we go about running a distributed company, why we chose this model, what we found works, what didn’t, and how it is really possible to be a global business of home workers.
