Digital agencies hire me for complex, data-heavy web projects and business-critical migrations for ecommerce platforms including Drupal and WordPress.
Whether you need a database-backed webite or are pitching for a multi-vendor ecommerce migration, your team should have the right expertise. There are many great developers and web designers out there but few have my experience with business-critical web data migration projects. My clients will tell you all you need to know about my work.
Demonstrate value to your client by providing a full view of the project scope. Start off on solid ground to ensure success.
Custom scripts export content to suit your new information architecture. Clean, merge, or reformat the content as needed.

Anthony brought rigor and organisation to our project, coordinating a variety of third-party teams on a complex project. I appreciated Anthony's attention to detail and ability to break down the complexity of the project to manageable tasks for all the players. Anthony brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the data migration element of the project. He identified and handled all the risks and potential pitfalls of the project , and proactively researched and proposed best fit solutions to reduce the risk rates. I would highly recommend Anthony to anyone looking for an experienced IT project manager.
Anthony handled a migration from a complex Drupal system to Wordpress for us. The result is outstanding. He gave us first class advice, offers top service and implemented everything as we wanted. Top!
Anthony worked with us on a mission-critical Drupal-to-Wordpress migration project. With his expertise, he provided important help in the initial roadmapping of the project, and ultimately built critical components of our new purchase process. His documentation is exceptionally thorough, and his communication throughout the project was equally strong—responsive even while working across time zones and continents. When we ran up against roadblocks, Anthony was patient and resilient, and asked good questions to help us get unstuck. I would be excited to work with Anthony again.
I partnered with Anthony for an international NGO client's website migration and redesign. From the first conversation, I knew working with Anthony was going to be a success - he asks insightful questions and really thinks ahead. Our NGO client had a tight deadline due to their old Drupal site expiring on a fixed date, so we had to work accurately and fast (not an easy thing to do). Anthony made everything move forward smoothly and efficiently - and went above and beyond (he even educated our client on hosting options). Everything from the discovery meeting, to the migration (full cycle) and design phases, went better than expected. If you're an agency needing migration expertise, I highly recommend working with Anthony!
Anthony brought superior technical and project management skills to the project at the outset and discovered aspects of the migration that I had never considered. His depth of expertise in migration projects guaranteed the success of the project. We ran into some deep technical challenges and Anthony wrote some custom plugins to handle our needs in WordPress.

We hired Anthony to perform a Drupal to WordPress migration of a multilingual legacy Drupal site we didn't fully understand ourselves. He guided us through the process with patience and persistence, meeting our at-times complicated requirements for handling the content. I absolutely recommend Anthony to anyone who needs to migrate off of Drupal!
Anthony does an amazing job of looking carefully at every aspect of a migration project and working patiently with his clients to ensure the end product is exactly what they need. We couldn't have migrated our site from Drupal to WordPress without him!
Another Cup of Coffee has been fantastic to work with. Anthony is efficient and pleasant, always clearly communicating updates and challenges. Their work product was not only timely, it was excellent quality. All the way through this migration project, it has been a pleasure doing business with them!
Great service, excellent communication. I've worked with a few different developers and no one can ever explain clearly what they are doing and why. Anthony knows his stuff and can explain it. He responds super quickly and says exactly what he is doing and how long it will take. I definitely will come back when I need another site migrated.
Anthony and team were great! They handled our project of converting a very large & old Drupal website to WordPress very quickly and accurately. The process was painless and allowed us to launch two weeks ahead of schedule!
Anthony helped us successfully migrate over 20,000 news stories and close to 10,000 tags from Drupal to WordPress within a few weeks. Anthony was very professional and quickly answered any inquiries or requests we had during the migration process. Highly recommended — he will do an amazing job!
Although I can build general websites and online stores, my niche is web directory and database sites on WordPress. Bring your own designer or task me with off-the-shelf theme customisation. I will write the code for custom plugins or integration with other web services.
Hire me for projects that involve back-end programming challenges, specifically those that require analysing data and processing content. I will probably use Python, PHP or BASH shell scripting. In terms of relational database technologies, I normally use MySQL, PostgreSQL and Microsoft Access.
I have worked with a wide range of hosting providers over the years. This includes low-cost bulk hosting, cloud services and dedicated servers run from colocation datacentres in the City of London. Platforms cover most Unix-based operating systems (Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD) together with the standard LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack.

I am Anthony Lopez-Vito, operating under my company, Another Cup of Coffee. My work usually involves the stuff that happens behind the scenes: programming, databases and servers. Digital agencies, creative professionals and site owners hire me to help them build and maintain websites.
You can slot me in a project to work alongside your existing team of designers and developers. Alternatively, I can put together and manage a team of associates who work remotely and collaborate with me online.
Another Cup of Coffee is based in London, UK. My clients and colleagues operate in different cities around the world.
Everyone in this game needs a specialisation to stand out from the crowd. Mine is migrating data from the Drupal and WordPress content management systems.
I offer a Drupal to WordPress migration service for digital agencies and site owners who need an expert to advise them throughout the project.
A big part of my work involves project management, site auditing and writing custom scripts to export content from Drupal. If necessary, I reformat or clean the content for use in a WordPress content type or plugin. My migration workflow uses a toolkit of scripts and processes developed over the years working with both platforms. If you have an upcoming Drupal to WordPress migration project, please get in touch for a quote.
