Web Development and Security

The group offers its expertise in the area of web development, in particular in the framework of the Drupal infrastructure offered by CERN. The goal is to provide rock solid, CERN branded, low maintenance and forward scalable web sites. The collaboration with the IT department for what concerns the management of the Drupal service and with the DG-CO group for what concerns the branding and theming is crucial. Beyond its own Drupal site, SFT developped the site of the EP-DT and many others.
