We were contacted by a design and dev shop who was making a pitch to a new client to use Craft CMS for a site redesign. The whole deal was gated on Craft being able to get form submission data into the client’s Microsoft Dynamics GP install.

That way we don’t break anything on your production site.” Now you sound like a pro; confident, capable, experienced and relaxed. Read on for a tutorial on how to get Craft CMS running up on AWS.

ExpressionEngine 3 came out a couple of weeks ago. I’m really enjoying working with it as we update our addons. There is a new part of the architecture that EllisLab is calling Services. We’ll get technical and talk about a highlight in this blog post.

“Ok so Mitchell, you are saying that you will not be finished on time? You’re saying that you will not be able to meet the deadline and the site will not launch as expected on the critical date established by the 15 global marketing teams globally, around the world, including Fiji, the Galapagos and Lubbock?”
