Drupal!  Who knew?  After learning Joomla and WordPress to a decently functional level, now I am charged with creating a Drupal website – and a big one, at that.  OK… yes, the geek in me says FUN!  The business side of me says… can I learn this one (CMS) faster?  Probably not as fast as I would like but it looks like it’s going to pretty fast.

Drupal 7 sounds like it will be a lot more user friendly than the current version.  In this case user means both developer and end user.

One of the most interesting points made in Jay Batson’s presentation was that Drupal is gaining traction in the large business areas due to its scalability.  Add to that information, the info from Tom McCracken about the speed of Drupal sites with the use of a couple of SEO and performance modules.  The combination of the information shows how strong the Drupal offering has already become and is continues to grow.

As many of my readers know, I’ve been on the leading edge of many trends.  Sometimes I’ve often been on the bleeding edge (the one where people are making markets and trying new stuff). Drupal is going to be big, big, bigger in the business realms than WordPress or Joomla.  Mark my blog! (…newer than “mark my word.”)
