The Challenge
 

digital destination for music

One-of-a-kind, Billboard sought a team of developers capable of reproducing their dynamic music experience on top of a legacy codebase, containing thousands of articles published from a global team of content authors. In addition to a Content Management System (CMS) which would provide their phenomenal team back-end services to manage digital content in-house.

Layering Drupal's web services with a Content Management System (CMS) back-end, in addition to a fully custom front-end leveraged by a backbone Javascript framework. The skilled team of developers at Billboard and Stauffer worked alongside one another to developed solutions for the various forms of content available to visitors of the heavily trafficked site. Together, we designed a flawless “headless” Drupal application with unparalleled flexibility and performance.
