US Forest Service

Project Description

Currently I am engaged with the company PowTec who has me working on several US Forest Service web projects. The main project is taking the former Drupal 7 site and converting it to a responsive and more editor friendly experience.

As I did with, I am driving the adoption of a common core profile that all US Forest Service properties can be based on.

A Common Core

One of the biggest things that I had the opportunity to participate in while at was the creation of a common base profile that would be used for other Comcast properties, such as

This part of the project entailed carving the parts out of Drupal that would be common to all Comcast web properties, such as the structure of news articles, or image metadata, and putting those things into a profile that would allow future developers to easily launch a new site.

This was made easier because of the headless nature of our Drupal sites.

Headless Drupal

One of the most interesting parts about working on the site is the fact that the site that you enter news into isn’t the same site that displays that news. utilizes Drupal for content entry, but uses Javascript to render the final website.

This also allows to shuffle the content around any way they like before outputting it. It also allows for distribution of the content to any type of device, but all entered in one familiar environment.

Enter once, use everywhere!
