WordCamp MSP is a three-day conference, held annually in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area.

Many of the topics on Friday are geared to a full-time WordPress professional and business audience, where the topics on Saturday are geared towards hobbyists, website managers, and people looking to transition into a deeper level of WordPress knowledge. There is something each day for developers, designers, writers, business owners, strategists, and new WordPress users alike.

Drupal is an open source content management system and is in many ways similar to WordPress. It’s used to make many of the websites and applications you use every day. Over the years Drupal and WordPress have matured alongside each other — borrowing many of the features or techniques that work best along the way. In this session, I’ll offer an introduction to Drupal’s functionality and best use cases while comparing and contrasting what we already know about WordPress.

Key takeaway: “I can be a better developer and site builder by leveraging the diverse community in other open source projects.”
