We have recently launched a revamped site for Times Education targetting newly qualified teachers with the NUT.
New Teachers is a core asset of Times Education, providing teaching tips, resources, online live advice chat and the latest job vacancies for new teachers.
Ixis have worked with Times Education for 4 years, providing development and consultancy support to a range of sites including assets for headteachers and the provision of careers guidance for schools. We also provide a hosting and support infrastructure that ensures the sites are secure and performing especially under heavy traffic loads at peak times.
Drupal 8 needs as much prodding along as it can get to make the anticipated winter 2013 launch.
With the launch in mind the next worldwide sprint weekend is coming up just after the London DrupalCamp weekend - on the 9th & 10th of March. Yes Mothering Sunday is also on the 10th in the UK so make sure you don't forget those ladies in your life inbetween git pushing code.
The global Drupal event calendar Drupical is doing a nice job of keeping a record of the sprint events coming up over the next few months.
Ixis were approached by Insider Media in the North West to take part in a feature for their magazine. The Verdict is a regular feature that brings experts to a company dealing with a specific business problem or issue.

We are delighted to announce that we have recently secured another major public sector contract via the government’s G-Cloud procurement framework.
Ixis have been appointed to provide managed hosting and support services to health and care watchdog the Care Quality Commission. This involves migrating 2 sites, www.cqc.org.uk and www.healthwatch.co.uk to our infrastructure and an ongoing maintenance and support contract post launch.
