Drupal CMS Development: Blend Technology With Creativity

Wondering how to perform better online?

Well, you can’t afford to remain at the same position for years, especially when competition is becoming tougher with each passing day. Now seems the right time to find a valid answer to the above question and look for ways and means to perform better.

Change is what is constantly needed in order to survive, sustain and grow in unstable technological and business environments. Before you realize, a specific technology becomes outdated and you again have to gear up to keep up with the changes.

Blend Technology and Creativity.

Most online businesses have understood that they will have to blend the power of technology with the influence of creativity to come up with the most effective online business strategies. They look for an ecommerce platform that has a scope for constant customization and allows them to be creative all the time.

Drupal is one such platform and its use allows them be creative and technical at the same time. The open source platform allows an infinite scope for changes and customization. It gives companies ample reasons to use it for website or Content Management System development.

First released in 2001, Drupal continues to grow exponentially and the latest version, Drupal 7, remarkably supports various databases including MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite, PostgreSQL, etc. It’s more compatible than its previous versions.

Take Part in Search Engine Optimization

If you don’t want to see your business website slipping down in rankings on search engines, you have no choice but to enter in the game of search engine optimization and actively participate in it. Trust me, it’s never ending.

Most businesses prefer Drupal CMS development over other platforms because of this reason. It’s the specialty of Drupal.

The platform helps businesses in optimizing their website to a great extent. Provided you know the right tricks, you can achieve better rankings in search engines using Drupal as a base for your website.

Play the Game of Analytics

Don’t you want to collect statistics about your website traffic? Who visits your website? From where do you get maximum traffic? What are the sources of traffic?

The answers to all these questions play a critical role in analyzing your conversions and sales. After all, this is what matters the most.

Using Google Analytics, Drupal can help you fetch accurate data, basis which you can adjust your marketing efforts. The best part is that you don’t have to have special codes or programs to run Google Analytics for your Drupal website.

Play with Content

Don’t like the existing content on your website? Want to modify it or change it completely?

Drupal makes it so simple for you.

No matter when you want to update, edit, modify or publish the content, Drupal CMS development makes it easy to carry out and manage all these procedures.

And the best part is that you don’t need to have any expert for content management until you have ample time to do so.

If you find difficult to focus on your website and want to return to your core business activities, it’s ideal to hire Drupal CMS developers. They will manage the content, inventory and other functionality on your behalf while you can conduct meetings with clients, work on your marketing strategy or indulge in any other work.

Drupal is free, user-friendly and search engine friendly. On the top of it, it allows you to customize it to a great extent. What else do you need in a content management platform?

What is Open Source and How Does It Work?

Open source software is created and maintained by users. It can be tweaked, added to and improved by anyone. And best of all, it’s free!

Open source has been instrumental in modern computing, from the development of browsers to media players to operating systems, and its value grows with every passing day as the community around it share their skills, knowledge and passion for the benefit of everybody else.

So, what is open source, how does it work and is it safe?

Understanding How a Server Works and What it Is

Understanding How a Server Works and What it Is

via WordPress
We can define a server as hardware or software, or a combination of both. On the software side, we can say that it is a computer program that controls how someone accesses hosted files. On the hardware part, we can say that is a computer that hosts files, such as HTML documents, CSS stylesheets, JavaScript files and images. The computer stores these files and delivers them to the end user’s device on request. For it to to work properly, one must connect the program to the internet so that users can access it via a domain name.

How the Program Works

The key role of the program is to listen in on any incoming requests from a web browser, fetch the data requested and transmit it back to the browser using a protocol such as HTTP. The browser will receive the transmitted data, convert it and display it on the screen for the user.

Let’s get into a bit more details on how the program enables a user to get a web page on his computer screen. Let’s say you type “What is Web Hosting” in Google, and you click on a site with a URL “http// what-is-web- hosting.htm.” First, the browser will break down the URL into three distinct parts.

These are the protocol (http), the program’s name (“”) and the file name (“what-is-web-hosting.htm”). The browser will use the program’s name ( to communicate with the program. Using the HTTP protocol, the browser will request for the file “what-is-web-hosting.htm” via a GET request. The program will check if there is a file that matches the request and send an HTML text for the web page in the browser.

Once the browser gets the HTML text from the program, it will read the HTML tags and format the page onto the user’s computer screen. If the program does not get a file matching the request, it will return an error to the browser. The most common error is “404 Not Found.”

This explanation can be difficult to understand, especially for those who are new to this concept. A protocol is simply a list of rules that guide communication between two computers. HTTP refers to a protocol that provides clear rules on how the program and the user’s computer communicate. When requesting for a file from the program via the HTTP protocol, the computer must give the URL of the file.


The program comes in different types. The most common ones include web programs, email programs, database programs and application programs. Web programs are the most common among the four. They transmit static content to web browsers by loading stored files and transferring them across the network to a browser.

Mail programs help in delivering emails while database programs help computer users get specific data using Structured Query Language (SQL) requests. Application programs, which are also known as middleware, provide the run-time environment for desktop and mobile-based applications and coordinate the things that happen between an application and a database.

MongoDB Change Streams: The Hidden Gem within the MongoDB Repertoire

MongoDB Change Streamshave been in play for some time now but haven’t gotten the limelight that they deserve.

Many developers are still not aware of their powers and the plethora of options brought to the table by using change streams. Change streams enable applications to stream real-time data changes by leveraging MongoDB’s underlying replication capabilities.

In this session I will demo two everyday use cases:

Data Modeling with MongoDB

This video is out of date. For the new and improved video, click here:

Good news everyone! MongoDB provides an extremely flexible document model for your use. At the same time the data model you design can seriously speed up or slow down your application. For example, an RDBMS approach to an IoT data storage will significantly slow down the application when used with a document model. This means that with great data modeling flexibility comes even greater responsibility. What are the the best practices for data modeling that leverage MongoDB’s flexible Document Model to best support your application through its development? Wonder no more! In this talk we will examine the most important considerations when making decisions about your data model.
