Balancing profession and private

In our job interviews with potential future employees we have a running gag: “At Factorial everyone works flexibly and remotely, not only when the heating meter stops by”. It is important to us that every employee is given the opportunity to integrate his/her family situation and leisure activities into the daily work routine. And this is how.

Declaring war on disinformation

In 2021, dpa’s fact-checking editorial team launched the Faktencheck21 project, which is co-funded by the Google News Initiative. Within this framework, dpa offers workshops on verification techniques for journalists from all over Germany to train them in dealing with false claims.

Defining bundle fields in code

Fields in Drupal 9 can be defined in code, or they can be defined in configuration. Both techniques have their uses and advantages. Typically code fields apply to all bundles of the entity type, as so-called base fields, while config fields apply only to a single bundle.

Celebrating holiday season differently

During the last holiday season we collected money for charity and involved our partners and colleagues. We were blown away by the incredible support we received and in the end we managed to collect 1.600€ that went directly to the Esche in Hamburg Altona.
