JBS International contracted Chris McGrath to act as a Sr. Drupal Developer for their client Vista Campus vistacampus.gov, a project of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). He works in conjunction with Phase 2 Technology the original vendor to maintain and enhance the flagship property of the Americore Vista program. The site was originally built in Drupal 7 by Portland firm Open Sourcery who has since been acquired by Phase 2. It is fully responsive and uses the Aurora theme for Drupal and SASS to enhance performance. The site also uses the Panels module for ease of layout configuration, and the Organic Groups module to provide an array of community and collaboration features.
Chris has assisted with ongoing feature enhancement requests, via contributed module additions and custom code. He also works in an Agile style with a complex workflow involving GIT, the Acquia Cloud platform and the JIRA ticketing system where he collaborates with developers and stakeholders.
The site is aimed at helping members of the VISTA program connect, collaborate and take advantage of the many resources available to them through CNCS.
