IE employs 3 of the UK’s 4 triple certified Drupal 10 experts

We've always said we have some of the best developers in the business here at IE Digital. So, when three of our team took the exams to become Acquia Triple-Certified Drupal Experts, it came as no surprise when they all passed with flying colours. This makes them the UK's best-qualified Drupal 10 team.

Three is the magic number 

Our Head of Digital Nathan Powis and Senior Web Developers Jeff Logan and Dan Lewis all achieved the triple accolade this month. And we were especially delighted to discover they've joined a pretty exclusive club: currently there are just 4 triple-certified Drupal 10 Experts here in the UK, with 71 worldwide (plus 4 with the Japanese qualification)*. 

That really does make IE Digital the UK’s most qualified Drupal 10 team.

Advanced Drupal expertise

An Acquia Triple-Certified Drupal Expert is a Drupal developer (or Drupalist) who has achieved the three core Acquia certifications in a version of Drupal. In Acquia's words, each triple-certified developer has "demonstrated advanced Drupal expertise". 

That means they simultaneously hold the Acquia Certified Developer, Acquia Certified Back End Specialist and Acquia Certified Front End Specialist certifications – in our case, for Drupal 10. For Drupal versions up to Drupal 9, the accolade was known as the Drupal Grand Master.

Amazing Drupal websites

As with the whole team at IE Digital, we're super-proud of Nathan, Dan and Jeff for bagging this exceptional qualification. What's more, we see them demonstrating this expertise on the job every day, as they build and support amazing Drupal websites for our charity, health and education clients.

So, if you're looking for a Drupal team to migrate your existing site or build something new, look no further. We work in WordPress too, so you can choose the content management system (CMS) that works best for your requirements. 

We also have some of the UK's best digital consultants, UX designers, and support analysts to round out our talented team.
