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.”
