You might be wondering if you are on the right site. Are you:

  • A developer wanting to build a web

  • A techie looking to exchange ideas with other techies
  • A techie who’s passionate about teaching others
  • An individual who simply wants to learn something new

This website is perfect for you if you fit in one or more of these personas.

We provide our site visitors with blogs about an exciting content management software, Drupal. Why do we say exciting? We’ll give you three reasons.

Why Drupal Excites

First, Drupal is an innovative content management software that is flexible and simple —characteristics that don’t usually go together in software or technology platform. Its application programming interface (API) architecture is flexible enough to support various digital platforms. It features built-in modules that allow you to expand the range of your website’s functionality. Drupal performs regular security tests, reducing its vulnerability to security threats.

With the growing need for digital marketing, Drupal has become popular among marketers. Aside from its automated translation feature supporting more than a hundred languages, it can also create automated marketing campaigns. Moreover, Drupal enables the provision of more relevant content to site visitors.

Because of these features, you might think Drupal is expensive. But did we say that Drupal is an open source?

Yes, that’s the second reason why Drupal is awesome. Open source software has become essential in many fields because of its numerous advantages.

Let’s get one thing straight. Open source is not free but can significantly reduce your software and hardware expenses. You get to save on licensing and maintenance fees. Unlike proprietary software, you can install your open-source software several times and use it anywhere without tracking your license compliance.

You avoid vendor lock-ins, which can be a hassle because of expensive license fees and the lack of portability. Since you can’t customize a proprietary software, you have to wait until the lock-in period ends before upgrading or expanding your software’s functionality—something you won’t have to experience with open source software.

There’s no need to rely on software vendors, either. Buying proprietary software requires you to reach out to them for maintenance and support. Or perhaps, you are forced into accepting upgrades you don’t need.

Open-source software programs are well-designed and of high quality. Typically, open-source software uses high-end technologies that allow you to integrate or level up your systems. Additionally, users of open-source solutions enjoy plenty of free support from various online communities or the producer of the software itself.

That said, Drupal has one of the more vibrant communities among open-source solutions providers. It has evolved from a hobby project of an individual that produced innovative software to a bigger, continuing project that has attracted the attention of many players in the technological world. It has bred a community of volunteers empowered to share new web technologies, build webs, and promote Drupal to the world.

These volunteers are ready to collaborate and put their skills together to help improve Drupal’s products and services, so it’s no wonder that Drupal continues to be among the best open-source content management software. Some join to learn from the experts and contribute to the community’s growth in any way possible.

With over 100,000 members, the Drupal community has formed smaller groups depending on their location and skill sets. For instance, its Community Working Group (CWG) is responsible for maintaining an engaging and friendly community, upholding the Drupal community’s Code of Ethics to ensure that members treat each other respectfully. It also takes care of community health and development as it facilitates the productive exchange of knowledge and supports initiatives that help its members avoid the ills of burnout and conflict.

Local Drupal Associations organize local camps (e.g., BADcamp) and other regional initiatives. They also help market the local business and assist in coordinating with the global Drupal Association. Several other groups exist, such as the Promoters, whose main role is to push for the use of Drupal, and the Mentoring Team, which ensures that mentors are given adequate support to facilitate mentoring within the community.

Join the Drupal community for a fun and engaging way to develop your skills. Connect with people who share your passion for web development, marketing, content development, and more. Regardless of your knowledge of Drupal and its community, our blog articles will help you understand what Drupal and its community are all about.

Help us push for the adoption of open-source technology.
