Why migrate to Drupal 9 now

With the release of Drupal 9.0 and 9.1 earlier this year and the announcement that Drupal 10 is planned for 2022 — we clearly understand that it can’t go back to how it was. You can choose Drupal 9 to attain all the latest security updates and wholesome functionality. Are you ready to move to a brighter future?

Drupal 9 readiness

This year, Drupal 9 was released and those who love cutting-edge technology wriggled on their seats — c’mon! Let’s migrate to Drupal 9 as soon as possible! Earlier, we advised our clients to wait a bit until a new minor version is live and the major issues are fixed. But now we are ready to engage in dialogue with you.

Most of those surveyed either prefer the registration in the clinic’s office or make a decision relying on the convenience of the registration process.

But, in the spring of 2020, students from all over the world had to leave classrooms and study through special websites. So, you can imagine the scale of this problem.

Now e-learning services come to our rescue. Its work is supported by sophisticated technologies, and assignments are prepared according to the special standards. Also, the website must include relevant features and reproduce an offline learning process, and, maybe, be even better than that.

What distance learning is based on:
