Aeon Development Group does their own website. We usually go years between updates, because other things take priority.
This new iteration of the site is written from the ground up, first in blocs for mapping out design, and then in Laravel for back end work. It was visually constructed to take the existing design and simply speed it up.
Additionally, since we want more flexibility, we started with a search engine from blocs and will gradually move into an elastic search.
We created our database migrations via artisan on the command line, and we will never again be interested in outdated php frameworks. We tested the new strategy on ourselves and will roll out features to internal divisions and eventually clients.
