In a previous Tag1 Team Talk, we discussed How to analyze Goose load testing results using New Relic. During testing, a bug was discovered! This team talk goes into detail about what the bug was, how they narrowed down the scope of the problem, and how to fix it.

In this test, Goose found a problem with Drupal’s Quick Edit feature. Quick Edit is a staple of content creators, enabling them to make changes directly in content, even if that content is wrapped in blocks or other Drupal layout features.

Once again, join Goose creator and CEO of Tag1 Consulting Jeremy Andrews, VP of Software Engineering and Goose contributor Fabian Franz, and Managing Director Michael Meyers as they dig into the results of a Goose Attack, and how this Goose test found something that other analyses did not.

In this second part of our team talk series on live load testing with Goose, we focus on demonstrating load testing using a Gaggle. A Gaggle is a distributed load test running Goose from one or more servers. Here, we’re testing with 20,000 users using ten Workers and a Manager process on services spun up using Terraform.

CEO Jeremy Andrews, the creator of Goose; Fabian Franz, VP of Software Engineering; CTO Narayan Newton, and Managing Director Michael Meyers demonstrate running a Goose Gaggle and discuss how variations on these load test change testing results, and what you can expect from a Gaggle. Our goal is to prove to you that Goose is both the most scalable load testing framework currently available, and the easiest to scale.

Narayan is a key member of the Drupal.org infrastructure team, responsible for ensuring the site stays up under load or attack. Load testing is a critical part of ensuring Drupal.org, or any website’s continued success.

In our final installment of our series on Laravel, Senior Software Engineer Laslo Horvath and Managing Director Michael Meyers talk about the future of application development, and Laravel’s role in that future.

Laravel’s strengths include a strong push towards reusable components. This methodology enables developers and designers to take advantage of using the things they need, and leave everything else behind. Laravel-based stacks enable website builders to more easily switch from developer to designer, and back.

Application development in Laravel is growing rapidly. Integrations with other software are common, and they’re bringing tools together that help developers work together more smoothly and efficiently. VILT (Vue.js, Inertia, Laravel, TailwindCSS) and TALL (TailwindCSS, Alpine.js, Laravel, Livewire) combinations really start to highlight the potential of these packages in concert. Learn more about how these stacks are being used, and where they're headed.

Automated deployment of software - whether it’s new packages, patches, or configuration changes - is a fact of life in modern software development and management. Automated infrastructure, however, is a newer set of tools and processes. With Amazon EKS and Pulumi, Tag1 is tackling these challenges to meet the needs of Fortune 500 customers.

In this second part of our series on automating infrastructure, Managing Director Michael Meyers is joined by CIO Jeff Sheltren and Senior Infrastructure Engineer Travis Whitehead. They discuss how Tag1 is using these tools to create and deploy entire websites, ready for use, in just a few minutes.

From a standardized distribution, to Docker, to Pulumi, and finally to deployment, you’ll hear about the ins and outs of the workflows Tag1 is creating to be faster and more successful.

Today’s business reality is nearly every company needs at least one website in order to be successful in their business. As organizations get larger, the number of websites companies need also increases. From Human Resources, to sales support, to customer service and support, different groups in your organization may have some similar needs, but different access levels.

Making these websites turnkey can reduce the amount of time your IT or devops teams need to spend standing up resources. It can also significantly reduce development costs when you have a deployable website instance that can be used to fulfill the needs of several organizations in your company.

In this first part a two part series, Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers talks with CIO Jeff Sheltren, and Senior Infrastructure Engineer Travis Whitehead about the challenges large enterprises face, and the software-based solutions Tag1 is using to help our customers be more successful with standardized website deployments.

In today’s electronically driven communication world, data security is no small matter. What’s safe? Who do you trust? Who else can access your data, and do you even know who those people or companies are selling it to?

A critical part of data security is encryption. It protects everything from our personal information, helping prevent identity theft, financial information like your bank account and credit card from being accessed, to company secrets. According to a 2019 CNBC article, cyberattacks cost businesses an average of $200,000, with 43% of attacks being aimed at small businesses.

What can your business do to help ensure your data is protected, while still enabling collaboration? Take a deep dive into understanding end to end encryption, and how emerging technologies like Yjs can be incorporated to meet your needs. Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers and VP of Software Development Fabian Franz are joined by Yjs creator Kevin Jahns, and Nik Graf, a technology consultant and creator of Serenity Notes in this Tag1 Team Talk.

Dries Buytaert’s name is known to everyone in the Drupal community. As the originator of the project, project lead, and co-founder of Acquia, Dries has been a pivotal person in the success of Drupal. During this interview, you’ll learn more about some of the accomplishments, accidents, and purposeful decisions that have made Drupal what it is today.

While Drupal is an open source project, based in code, many of the things that have made it the CMS that powers 1 out of every 30 websites, are not the code - they’re also the marketing that convinces new users to try Drupal, and the people who make up the community and own necessary portions of the project.

As part of our series of talks with Open Source Leaders, Tag1 Consulting’s Managing Director Michael Meyers, VP of Software Engineering Fabian Franz, and Yjs founder Kevin Jahns talk with Dries about the origins of Drupal, and how it grew as a project and a community. We’ll also tie back to our Tag1 looks back on 20 years of Drupal experiences 20 years of Drupal series to talk about how community members can be critical to the growth and adoption of an open source project.

Decoupled Drupal is now a fixture of the Drupal community and ecosystem, but it has roots in key software concepts like the separation of concerns. Today, decoupled Drupal is commonplace across the Drupal world, not only at the highest echelons of enterprise implementations of Drupal but also among smaller consultancies beginning to get their feet wet with headless CMS architecture.

From the early days of Drupal's remarkably prescient web services, to the adoption of the JSON:API specification in Drupal core, to the ongoing innovation surrounding GraphQL in Drupal and the Decoupled Menu Initiative, how far have we come? How has decoupled Drupal evolved over the years, what makes it such a compelling architectural paradigm in light of the emerging distributed CMS trend, and why is it still in vogue?

In part 2 of our series on decoupled Drupal, Preston So, the author of Decoupled Drupal in Practice (2018), co-originator of the term progressive decoupling, and Tag1 Consulting's Editor in Chief and Michael Meyers, Managing Director at Tag1, in this discussion of decoupled Drupal’s history and future, and the hows and whys of using decoupled Drupal.
