  • Embarking on a Drupal 8 adventure

    Foreach is not a Drupal only company; we have almost 10 years of experience in Drupal, but we did our first large Drupal project (>200 mandays) only 2 years ago.

  • How we go about Testing

    Nowadays, every software company has a strategy to test their code before releasing it to the customer. This can be manual testing done by someone who is less of a techy or by a co-developer or even by the developer who wrote the initial code. Manual testing can be done in many different ways, ranging from exploratory testing – just click here and there a bit – up to strictly following use cases that have been made up by a test manager. This manual testing already goes around for quite some time and is still subject to change.
