What is Drupal?

Drupal is a free open-source software that is distributed under the General Public License (GPL), and allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage, and organize a wide variety of content on a website. Drupal is quickly becoming a recognized leader in the content management system (CMS) sector for its ease of use, flexibility, and robust capabilities. Drupal has developed tremendous momentum over the last few years and has been utilized by such brand recognizable names as Yahoo, eBay, NASA, NATO, MTV, and is a favorite for many of the world’s most prestigious universities (i.e. MIT, Purdue, and University of California Berkeley). Drupal is maintained and developed by a passionate community of users and developers.

Drupal has an excellent reputation for being a robust, flexible, user friendly platform. Drupal’s goal is to help users manage website content such as blogs, photos, articles, newsletters, podcasting, forums, peer-to-peer social networking, and file uploads/downloads. Drupal takes care of the details of how important information is arranged and personalized and lets users focus on the actual content to be displayed. Drupal is designed to make this task easy via a site administration interface.

Drupal is for Everyone

Drupal can be used in a variety of capacities such as:

  • Corporate websites
  • Community web portals
  • Social networking sites
  • Intranet applications
  • Personal websites or blogs
  • E-commerce applications
