Become a Drupal Architect - Session 4 of 4: Automation for Quality Assurance

Course details

Level: 

Let's be honest: sometimes there are 4 ways to do anything in Drupal, and 3 of them are best practice depending on circumstances. Pick the wrong path and you might still build a functional website.. for now. 6 months later you may find that architectural decisions are coming back to hurt you - your site may have slowed down, crashed, feel like it is held together with duct tape, or become hard to refactor.
