NBCUniversal — multichannel development
We’ve complemented NBC’s development team since 2013 to help them build websites, content APIs, and apps for streaming devices like Amazon Echo, Roku, and Samsung Smart TV. The Web Chefs have become integral to an NBCUniversal development team that has moved the technological needle forward, making sure NBC viewers have a seamless multichannel experience, and even winning an Emmy for Outstanding Interactive Programming.
Forcepoint — hiring augmentation
Four Kitchens originally contracted with Forcepoint to build their new website to coincide with the launch of their new brand. After launch, they found themselves short on the development resources needed to maintain their site. Four Kitchens worked with Forcepoint to act as a stopgap, maintaining and updating parts of the site until they could hire an in-house developer. Additionally, Forcepoint leveraged the Web Chefs’ expertise to successfully find and interview a new in-house developer.
The Economist — continuous migration
In 2009, The Economist wanted to achieve something monumental: Migrate hundreds of thousands of articles and millions of users from their aging, homebrew CMS to a state-of-the-art, Drupal-powered publishing platform. Working alongside The Economist’s formidable team and other expert vendors, we divided our efforts to continuously migrate the site as we rolled out new features. Our work with The Economist lasted more than four years and spanned 10 projects. Still today, Economist.com remains one of the world’s largest Drupal-powered websites.
City of Austin — enterprise-level guidance
The City of Austin decided to move austintexas.gov to Drupal. Although they built an excellent in-house team, they needed some help with enterprise-level Drupal development, so they hired the Web Chefs to augment the leadership of their team. We provided guidance in best practices, code reviews, and DevOps that kept their team on-track and on-budget.
