Bespoke sites – Code management

Making Moodle your own is one of the key benefits and advantages of an open-source project.

But it does require a little work…

With major Moodle versions being updated bi-annually and a general support lifecycle of 18 months for each new release, it’s imperative that your Moodle site is maintained and updated to remain secure.

With heavy reliance on third party plugins and bespoke developments your site can quickly fall outside of supported Moodle versions.

Synergy learning can help…

Any site we host or develop is managed under version control, using the same protocol as the Moodle HQ development team (GIT). This ensures that any developments or plugins added to your site are not lost during an upgrade and we carry out code-reviews of customisations to ensure compatibility with future versions before you upgrade your site.

If you have a Moodle site that requires code management or you would like to place your site under version control for ease of updating please do contact our team to discuss your requirements.
