  10. 10.
  11. 11. Zend version<br />Lead developer most knowledgeable with Zend<br />We were not convinced that Drupal could handle such complexity, in experience possibly…<br />8 man months of work and started in Feb 2010<br />
  12. 12. Zend – Con’s & Pro’s<br />No backend functions out of the box or easily created & need on ACL implementation.<br />Multilingual is hard, manual PO files<br />No great building blocks <br />Object Oriented<br />Database mapper (Doctrine ORM)<br />Easier to deploy & version control <br />
  13. 13. Aantal projecten<br />z<br />z<br />
  14. 14. Drupal version<br />Got frustrated that we did not have building blocks and admin section was very costly to build<br />Everything needed to be custom coding & then theming. We see this issue in multiple platforms/frameworks.<br />About 6 man months of work and startedin Jan 2011 <br />
  15. 15. Con’s<br />Miscalculation on our side to force drupal to concept and not convince client to sacrifice certain parts to do in the “drupal way”.<br />Ubercart implements/outputs to many things in it’s own way, which is hard to customize<br />This has cost us at least +/- 3man months<br />
  16. 16. Pro’s<br />Easy & clean backend extensions<br />Extensive permission system<br />Being able to add webservices fairly easy<br />Much better multilingual<br />Better extendable for the future<br />
  17. 17. Conclusion<br />Happy to do it, but we lost time making drupal the way the design needed.But gained a lot of time on implementing many aspects with the default “drupal building blocks”<br />
  18. 18. Discussion<br />What kind of experiences did you have?Who went from Custom to Drupal?<br />Did any one of go from Drupal to Custom?And why?<br />???<br />
