We develop communication strategies and build web applications for some of the most influential organizations in the world. Serving as both a technology implementer for international development projects and as an open source research and development operation, our unique consulting practice balances deploying cutting edge technology with ensuring our tools are useful and efficient in the hands of the people who need them.
To develop mission-critical tools for our partners, we need the security, power, flexibility and sustainability that only open source software can provide. We’ve been building with Drupal for more than six years and in that time have led the development of many key modules that have impacted the wider project, including Features, Context, Spaces, Installation Profiles, Aegir, i18n, FeedAPI, the Notifications and Messaging frameworks, the SMS Framework, Mail Handler, and the Data module, to name a few.
We first chose to build our tools primarily with Drupal because it is powerful, it is stable, and it has a great community supporting it. We are very involved in that community, and in addition to our code contributions, we sponsor and advocate for Drupal meetups and camps worldwide. In March 2009, we organized DrupalCon DC, the largest gathering of Drupal developers to date.
Our team has partnered with some of the world’s leading international development organizations to deliver technology wins for their projects using Drupal. Our partners include names you know, including the World Bank, the United Nations, USAID, Human Rights Watch, InterAction, and leading domestic organizations like the New America Foundation and the Knight Foundation.
