Welcome to the family: DevCore from Sweden becomes Umbraco Gold Partner
Hi there. It’s us, DevCore 😉
We are a fast-growing Swedish company found in 2000 and situated in Stockholm. At the moment we are 40 employees who mainly work with web development.
Most of the work we do happens at the office, but we also travel a lot to clients when needed. After all, to help them overcome obstacles it’s always easier to meet in person.
The DevCore squad ready to travel!
Our start with Umbraco
The first time we worked on an Umbraco project was 6-7 years ago, but that was more of a one time thing. A lot of DevCore developers though have been doing Umbraco work on a side for friends and family.
However last year we felt that we want to offer something more to our clients. We want to be able to deliver really good websites based on .NET technology for our clients, and that includes Umbraco. We want to be skilled in Umbraco and offer our expertise.
We could also see that there is a big market for Umbraco opening up, which also influenced our decision to put more emphasis on our work with Umbraco.
For us Umbraco is very close to what we do right now. It’s the way of working that we’re used to. We like to make things simple to the users of a CMS, and Umbraco is really good at that.
Why are we a Gold Partner?
We decided to become a Gold Partner in the end of last year. We thought that if we are starting to put more focus on work with Umbraco, we need to do this for real. That’s when we flew a trainer in and certified 15 people 😊
We thought that becoming a Gold Partner is the best step for us to show that we are qualified to do this kind of work, and also get the support needed.
“Being a Gold Partner gives us more confidence when offering Umbraco as a solution to our clients, we feel that for us that’s the only way it should be to provide value.” David Goldman, Managing Director and Co-owner, DevCore
Naturally, it takes a little while for us to establish the partnership and the mutual understanding off competencies between us and Umbraco. But it feels great to know that there is someone to talk to on the other side of the line. Which is not the way it is if you look at other open source based systems.
At the end of the day, we want to deliver a lot of great solutions on Umbraco and I’m sure we’ll be able to show that we’re worthy of being a Gold Partner. Last, but not least, we’re fun and social and we look very much forward to our future with Umbraco!
“With DevCore joining the Gold Partners, we start seeing a new kind of movement from very experienced agencies. DevCore has an impressive track record from other .NET based platforms, and need a solid alternative to offer their clients - and has chosen Umbraco as the platform for the future. Happy to have them on board!” Anders Trans Sørensen, Major Friend Maker, Umbraco HQ
Welcome to the squad: Arlanet from the Netherlands becomes Umbraco Gold Partner
Arlanet, a digital agency based in the Netherlands, has been working with Umbraco since 2005. You know, back in those times when version 2.0 just saw the light of day (we just celebrated Umbraco’s 13th birthday!) and Codegarden had 23 attendees. That means that, as they say themselves, Arlanet has “seen it all”. All, meaning the growth Umbraco has gone through as a software and as a company, and how that eventually led them to the decision to become our Gold Partner. Meet Arlanet!
