Making Drupal upgrades easy forever

March 09, 2017
One of the key reasons that Drupal has been successful is because we always made big, forward-looking changes. As a result, Drupal is one of very few CMSes that has stayed relevant for 15+ years.

September 14, 2016

This year’s North American Drupal convention was hosted in New Orleans this past May and, from all accounts, it was a tremendous success. Drupal’s creator, Dries Buytaert, gave the keynote address, discussing his proposed vision for the future of the Drupal Project.
