Mike Madison, a Technical Architect in Acquia Professional Services, recently completed a Drupal site build for a major public transit agency in the United States. We spoke with him about his experiences using BLT -- an open-source Acquia product that provides an automation layer for testing, building, and launching Drupal 8 applications -- on this project. Mike said that BLT has been a critical component of the project’s success, and has especially helped in three primary ways: by accelerating project spin-up, improving developer onboarding, and increasing development velocity and delivery consistency.

Acquia’s Professional Services team recently released an open-source application that demonstrates how Drupal and Node.js can easily be paired to create beautiful and functional decoupled applications. See how easy it was to create the Drupal backend using a combination of Acquia and Drupal community projects such as Lightning, BLT, and DrupalVM. This will allow you to follow the same process to rapidly create your own custom decoupled applications.
