We just completed our third Drupal 8 project: SGG - Schweizer Gemeinnützige Gesellschaft. After relaunching our own website and helping out with Drupal.com (our first two Drupal 8 sites), we are excited to launch our first client website 100% on the upcoming major release of our favorite open source CMS.
After we had built the community site Intergeneration and the voting platform CHymne using Drupal 7, we now chose Drupal 8 for the relaunch of the corporate website of SGG. The compact feature of the site allowed us to apply the strengths of Drupal 8 as per today and so we created the association's new website relying entirely on Drupal 8 core functionality.
Building the new SGG website was a team effort; continue reading for the findings of each of us while we were creating the new site on the latest beta release of Drupal 8.

It must be weird, but living in Russia I have never attended a russian Drupal event. I was at DrupalCon Prague 2013 and have attended ukrainian DrupalCamps several times before. The Ukraine is located much closer to the town where I live than to the russian capital, so for me it’s faster to get to the neighbour country rather than to visit Moscow.
You are into Drupal. That's great! But have you really been into Drupal? I mean, have you seen what Drupal is all about?
There is this feature in Chromes’ DevTools that allows you to directly edit your local Sass files without ever leaving your beloved browser. Even better, it will refresh your CSS files as soon as Compass has compiled them for you (kinda like Guard!). And to go even further, it will show you where the CSS definitions really come from (the original Sass files), instead of that generated gibberish.
We are crazy about graphs and statistics. No wonder we also want to get a feel for the health of our Drupal sites in some way. On our video wall, one screen is dedicated to showing us errors per server to get a better understanding for how good we are doing. You cannot reach zero here, but you see if something fails miserably when things go over 9,000!
December traditionally produces a plethora of end of year reviews and we want to chip in too. Open-source projects like Drupal depend of the sharing of knowledge. Besides being committed to participating in contribution sprints and submitting patches on Drupal.org we believe that by writing blog posts we can additionally share some of our know how with the community.
