People who follow our blog already know that we’re using Docker at Droptica. We've also already shown you how easy it is to start a project using our docker-drupal application (https://www.droptica.pl/blog/poznaj-aplikacje-docker-drupal-w-15-minut-docker-i-przyklad-projektu-na-drupal-8/).
Welcome to our blog page. We'd like to share knowledge of the areas that are the most fascinating to us.
When creating websites, you probably sometimes saw how your page changes its appearance on different browsers, not to mention a variety of devices. Depending on how many different configurations we will want to check, the amount of time spent on testing them will grow rapidly and the enthusiasm will probably decrease at a similar rate with repeating the same action on another device.
Content creation using the Paragraphs module is a completely different approach compared to the "standard" content creation in Drupal. In short: we prepare the components (paragraph type) and then, during the creation of an entry, we select any of the available components.
Droptica's roots date back to 2008 when one of our co-founders opened his first own software house – openBIT. Since then, our main goal is continuous improvement, so that we are able to and deal with even greater, more interesting and ambitious projects. It would not be possible without hiring programmers who are able to face the challenges.

Everyone who has ever worked in IT has surely stumbled upon communication issues between programmers and testers, or in other cases, another person whose role was to check whether the task was completed correctly. Speaking with coders, you can hear many anecdotes regarding bug reports and feedback they have received. When returning a task, I often find myself wanting to write just: “It doesn’t work!” However, situations in which nothing actually works are pretty rare.
Over the course of recent years, websites have undergone a significant change. Many new services and social media websites have been created, mobile applications now play a very significant role on the internet, and various on-line services exchanging data is nothing out of the ordinary anymore. We could even say that integration with external services is standard now, especially in the case of large e-commerce applications or on-line payment systems.
Time has already passed since the premiere of Drupal 8. New projects and modules are released all the time, and there is an ever-increasing number of projects compatible with version 8.x at drupal.org. Sadly, these versions are often still unstable and filled with various bugs.
Drupal is a bit famous for the number of database queries done against a database. When there are thousands of concurrent users to be served, the database can quickly turn into a major bottleneck. This was the case with http://kwestiasmaku.com - a very popular website with recipes. The website is visited by millions of enthusiasts of cooking.
