Awards and contributions

British Safety Council

Given the number of other integrations with 3rd party platforms (SSO, LMS, events & others) Reading Room solutions architects recommended a 'composable architecture' which would deliver a far more flexible and scalable platform as well as a future-fit solution.

There were a number of other complex considerations with the scoping of this project:

  • Complex data structure migration from Umbraco 7 to 10
  • Careful consideration was required for a site-wide and filtered search for complex data used widely by the membership
  • AWS Cloud Hosting was architected to provide a multi-region environment and peace of mind as well as scalability for heavy usage such as conferences etc.

As well as working closely with the small in-house team at BSC we worked in partnership with their SEO agency to ensure designs met their required standards.

The new Umbraco platform for BSC went live very recently during a seamless launch process manged by our own in-house tech ops team - View the site

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that we have the friendliest Open Source community on this planet. A community that's incredibly pro-active, extremely talented and helpful.

If you get an idea for something you would like to build in Umbraco, chances are that someone has already built it. And if you have a question, are looking for documentation or need friendly advice, go ahead and ask on the community forums.
