Splash Awards 2019 awards

The Austrian web development team of Drunomics from Vienna was awarded first prize in the Publishing / Media category for the Drupal project einfachbacken.de. The international award is a further confirmation of the outstanding technical implementation of this multisite, which was voted best website in the media category at the national awards ceremony in Munich in April.

At the international Splash Awards, the multi-site project einfachbacken.de won in the Publishing / Media category against projects from Africa, Europe, and the US. The site was conceived as a Mobile-First project for the publishing house MFI Meine Familie und Ich Verlag (part of Hubert Burda Media) and implemented with Thunder. As the first website in this multi-site instance, it developed into a springboard for four more sites.

During the development of einfachbacken.de, the main focus was on performance. This manifests itself in extras like the Vue.js, Solr, Varnish and Cloudflare CDN integration as well as a highly developed test suite with Behat, Sitespeed, and VisualRegressionTests. The team of einfachbacken.de would like to share recipes and knowledge to become the number one contact point for hobby bakers.
