Are you stuck on Drupal 7, 8 or 9?

Drupal 7 will be unsupported on the 5th of January 2025. Drupal 8 has been unsupported since November 2021. Drupal 9 will be unsupported in November 2023.

  • Do you need to upgrade your website before it reaches its end-of-life date and is no longer supported?
  • Are you worried about rebuilding your website and migrating your data to Drupal 10?
  • Is all of your business logic embedded within your Drupal code, making it hard to upgrade?
  • Do you rely on modules or themes that are no longer updated or don’t exist for Drupal 10?

What if you had a clear path how to upgrade your website?

  • What if you had a recommended approach to upgrade your website to Drupal 10?
  • What if you knew about potential issues ahead of time?
  • What if you had a list of modules to use in Drupal 10, alternatives for any missing modules, and what functionality would need custom code?

Drupal upgrade roadmap

An upgrade roadmap is a personalised audit of your Drupal website and includes details and actionable steps to upgrade it, including identifying potential blockers you might encounter.

How does it work?

  • After receiving payment, we will arrange an initial call to discuss your project.
  • You share your source code and provide access to your website.
    • I’ll need access to the source code for your website. Ideally, this is via GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or whatever online version control you currently use, but I can also audit a zip file of your Git repository.
    • I’ll need a user account to access your website to review its configuration, such as content types, user roles, etc. You can delete this once the engagement is complete.
    • Alternatively, I can use an export of the database to get a local version of your site up and running. Ideally, this would be sanitised to remove personal information such as usernames, email addresses and passwords.
  • I’ll send you the document once it’s complete for you to review.
  • We’ll arrange a follow-up call to go through it in detail and for you to ask any questions.

What others have said

Oliver’s approach to testing is a continual reminder of his commitment to delivering high-quality, bug-free, software.

I've wanted to explore testing for a while, but as a PHP developer with 10 years of Drupal experience who'd written next to no tests, I really needed guidance. Oliver's expertise in testing and TDD motivated me to seek his help.

Before our call, I'd started writing tests for my modules but needed direction, understanding the code to a degree but needing help with approach. Oliver clarified both unit and integration testing, providing solutions for my challenges, and shared his code for inspiration and help. He also gave me ideas on how to utilise contrib code to help me further.

Consulting with an expert, I gained the clarity and confidence I needed in tackling testing with structured, maintainable practices. Oliver's adaptability and tailored services make him highly recommendable.

Thanks, Oliver - I feel empowered and know exactly what approach to take now!

I've worked with Oliver for a number of years on B2C and B2B web projects and he has always demonstrated himself to be an expert in his field.

As an insurance provider, some of our products and services don't naturally fit within a traditional ecommerce journey - but Oliver has always been able to come up with innovative ways to leverage core Drupal functionality and develop custom modules to meet our needs.

Friendly, flexible and diligent – I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Oliver to anyone looking for a Drupal developer to progress their next project.

For over a decade we have worked with Oliver on a number of different projects. Initially our collaboration consisted of web maintenance and troubleshooting but we soon tapped Oliver to design, build and maintain a custom awards site which includes both submission and judging functionality. Oliver has deep and wide-ranging skills and I would certainly recommend his services!

Working with Oliver on the Seren website has been easy and beneficial.

As well as providing general maintenance support, he built a new Drupal module which integrated with our partners Glassboxx so that we could sell ebooks directly from our website. Oliver worked closely with the team at Glassboxx to create the integration which needed to communicate with the Glassboxx app so that users could download their purchases. He was able to resolve issues which came up along the way in order to create a functioning module which we now use on our site.

Oliver has extensive knowledge of Drupal and his familiarity with the Seren site meant he was able to fix problems quickly and efficiently as they arose.

He is reliable and has always been willing to discuss new ideas for how the site could function.

We would recommend working with him for his invaluable knowledge and ability to find solutions to problems at short notice. It has been a pleasure to work with him over the years.

Oliver is a pleasure to work with, and I would engage him again without hesitation. He communicates regularly, ensures that he meets requirements, and suggests improvements to the potential solutions to the brief.

A fantastic and highly knowledgeable Drupal Developer. Oliver saved a struggling Drupal project with his wealth of Drupal experience.

I had the pleasure of working with Oliver whilst building the first version of our drupal based intranet. His knowledge of Drupal and the wider infrastructure required to run a site was really invaluable.

At the time, we were very new to Drupal, so it gave us a great platform to learn from and expand our own knowledge.

He's the only external contractor that we've kept in touch with over the years, which goes to show how much we valued his input.

Oliver really knows his stuff. Whether you are just starting out or looking to take your knowledge to the next level, his patient and clear way of explaining will help get you there.

Brian Hartwell - Interactive Creative Director

I have had the pleasure of working with Oliver on several projects at Microserve. He is a natural innovator and a great mentor who inspires others to explore new technologies and approaches. He is a highly knowledgeable professional with a passion for all things Drupal and the tenacity required to get the job done well.

Oliver has been an outstanding contributor to the Drupal Association team. He is a talented developer who writes great code and applies his curiosity and love of learning to every project. He is also a fantastic team member, who gives to the team as much as he gets.

Oliver is the embodiment of everything good about the Drupal community.

Oliver is a skilled Drupal developer with a passion for the Drupal community. As his direct supervisor, I was able to watch Oliver grow with the Drupal Association and contribute an amazing amount of effort and integrity to all of his work.

Everything we have thrown at Oliver, he has approached with an open and flexible mind that has allowed him to work on a wide range of projects and features for Drupal products.

Oliver was fantastic to work with - pro-active and highly responsive, he worked well remotely and as part of a project team. His understanding of the project requirement(s) and ability to translate it into working code was essential and he delivered.

Oliver is seasoned Drupal and all round highly skilled and experienced web developer. I have worked with Oliver on an important project where he was reliable, prompt and ensured strict client deadline delivery and confidentiality at all times.

Daniel Easterbrook - Digital Strategy Consultant

We have only worked together for a short while but I can see Oliver is a Drupal expert.

His technical knowledge means we have been able to make improvements to the sites we manage quickly and efficiently.

If we have complex issues to contend with in the future I feel confident he will be able to deal with them.
