At Droptica, we have been regularly recruiting PHP developers for quite some time now. We often get asked what exactly does one have to know in order to join our team, mostly by people who are starting their careers as developers or who want to switch jobs or even industries.
We specialise in building custom websites and applications which scale and last
This year, Droptica turns 5! Many things in the company have changed during this time. We want to reflect these changes in the form of a new logo, which now represents who we are and who we want to be more accurate. Image change is part of our continuous development.
Another year is over, and we are glad to acknowledge that we are very proud of what happened during this period! In short, 2017 was the best year in the company’s five-year history. That is why we decided to share a brief summary of the year with you. See what we achieved over the last 12 months and what we have in store for 2018.
When you’re building an advanced website, you can choose from among many technologies. Usually, the first choice is the programming language (PHP, Python, Java, ASP.NET, etc.) and then we decide whether we should code everything from scratch or use a framework to do all the heavy lifting. There is also a third choice, a more comprehensive solution –so-called CMF systems, which stands for content management framework. Drupal 8 is one of these systems.
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, which would not be possible without hiring programmers who are able to face the challenges.
Clutch (a portal ranking development companies) named us as the global leader among companies working with Drupal. This is a great success. We are among the best companies working with Drupal worldwide. The results of our work are becoming increasingly more visible.
For the last couple of months we slowly worked on our new website. It took time, because client work always takes precedence. We finally did it. Design stage As with any new marketing website, we split the project into stages. First, we developed a content strategy - what do we really want to say and why? We wanted to avoid adhoc decisions done during development or design stages. The message is the most important thing on the website, the rest is just the packaging.
