    Hi. Please read the next paragraph in your best David Attenborough voice.

    When the majestic monarch takes flight on its marathon migration to Mexico, it’s easy to be moved by their mission. Each year hundreds of thousands of the small, winged creatures take to the sky with a common goal: survival and prosperity. No single butterfly completes the trip by itself, but as a group, they complete one of the most remarkable journeys in the world.

    Okay, back to your normal voice now.

    In my opinion, there’s nothing in the world quite like learning a new skill. It’s a huge rush figuring out how to do something you didn’t know how to do before. You start with the basics, and then once you’ve got the gist of it, you begin to improve. Over time you’ll get better at it, and you’ll get faster at it. Aside from just improving your abilities, your confidence level might change too. This process can go a few different ways. One is imposter syndrome, where you feel like a fraud that doesn’t know what they’re doing.

    Because instead of building a radically new version of Drupal in a separate codebase, Drupal 9 is being built in Drupal 8.

    You might be thinking… “Huh?!”

    Well, what this means is that the upgrade experience will be as smooth as a monkeys bottom.

    Drupal 9 will essentially be just like another minor core update in Drupal 8. 

    What is a minor core update? Quite simply, it’s the middle number in the version of Drupal you are running.

    Are you almost finished setting up your Drupal website? At a glance, everything might look ready to go.

    But, before you hit "publish," you need to make sure you haven't made any mistakes.

    A writer proofreads before they post an article. Similarly, a developer should double check their work.

    The last thing you want is to go live with your site and have something go wrong. Finding problems before you launch can save some headaches and embarrassment.

    The Situation That Prompted Change

    The monkey house (aka Cheeky Monkey Media) has been expanding a lot during the past few years. Our team has been growing. We’ve been working on more and larger projects, and we’ve been branching out to include more services.

    As with any growth spurt, we’ve had to deal with a few growing pains.

    At Cheeky Monkey, one of our goals is to have fun at work. After all, it's been said that the average worker spends 5 hours and 41 minutes per day at their desk, so why not make the most of it? That being said, we take our work very seriously and it shows. Cheeky Monkey was recently named not only as a top web design company in Canada, but also as one of the best web developers from leading technology research firm Clutch. Yeah, we’re pretty excited about that.
