Since 2005, CROSS has operated a voluntary confidential safety reporting system to capture and share lessons learned from structural safety issues which might not otherwise get public recognition. The audience is…

Getting Discovery Right - Zoocha...

DrupalCon Global was the first fully virtual DrupalCon, so whilst it lacked some of the atmosphere and social elements of physical DrupalCons, I found the virtual sessions much more interactive thanks to greater levels of audience participation via chat. With DrupalCon Europe coming up in December, also a fully virtual conference, I wanted to share the recording of the session. I hope you…

User login in Drupal 8... Drupal Web Development titi 18 May 2018 Idea We've recently attended the AWS London summit and this year it seemed like the focus was AI and machine learning. One of the services I've been meaning to play with is Rekognition, whichh can do face detection and compare two faces among many other things. While sitting in one of the sessions at the summit I had the idea to build a Drupal 8 module which uses the Rekognition module to…
Extending Twig Templates with Blocks... Drupal Web Development paul 14 Feb 2018 One of the many good things about Drupal 8 is the introduction of Twig. It's a lovely templating engine that, in my opinion, is far superior to PHPTemplate. For us frontenders, it has a much nicer user syntax that's more akin to handlebars or other JS templating engines. Imagine this scenario (I'm sure many developers have encountered this before): you're building a site and some of your page…

Serverless traffic maps monitoring

Overview This is a small serverless app I created to take screenshots of particular coordinates on Google Maps with the traffic layer applied to it in order to track how the traffic changes during my commute. The idea is to load the map on a simple static website hosted on S3, then using a lambda function take a screenshot of the map every 5 minutes for 2 hours and save those screenshots into…

Zoocha awarded ISO 27001:2013 certification

Just like quality, as we discussed in our post about our recent ISO 9001 certification, trust is one of our core values at Zoocha. An important part of this is ensuring our clients can trust that we are looking after their data effectively. As we already adhere to the government-backed Cyber Essentials Plus scheme, the logical next step was to tackle ISO:27001. ISO 27000 is the international…

Zoocha awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification

Quality, of course, is something that needs to be demonstrated rather than just talked about. So, earlier this year we set out on a journey to prove that we could practice what we preach by starting the process to become ISO certified. It’s worth pointing out it was key for us that the certification would be based around our existing project management methodology (largely scrum-based), and…

Nesting with CSS: the Good...

Here at Zoocha we use preprocessor for almost all our frontend work. Predominantly we use SASS although some projects are on LESS, partly for historical reasons. No-one can deny that it’s a really powerful way of writing CSS, giving you access to variables, mixin functions, and the apparent Holy Grail: nesting. The thing about all of the above though, and I think something that often gets…

Setting up Drupal Code Sniffer Drupal Web Development titi 07 Mar 2016 A few weeks ago I had to go through the process of setting up php code sniffer on my new computer, and realised how confusing most of the blog posts out there are and how many loops and posts you have to jump through to get it set up. I decided to write a quick post with all the commands in one place and small descriptions for most of the commands: Installing Drupal Coding Sniffer 1. Download…
