Why I Chose Drupal

On the look out for an Open Source Content Management System I toyed with a few but in the end plumped for Drupal after a recommendation from my good friend in Usability Yuri who commented on its' SEO qualities.

The community base of Drupal is very strong which aids in sourcing answers to issues that occur. There are a multitude of modules already available and more appearing all the time. There are also some great resources for Drupal providing tutorials and tools.

The strength and quality of Drupal was also recognised by Google as they backed a number of projects from their Summer of Code last year.

Many impressive sites also use Drupal such as Warner Brothers, The New York Observer and Ozzy Osbourne due to its' easy configuration and flexibility.

With the community growing fast, one thousand new registered users every day, Drupal is going from strength to strength. There are many great people involved with Drupal and regular meet ups which is a neat way to make contacts and talk projects over.

If you've had a different experience or prefer a different CMS then I'd love to hear from you.



I have to say, I am a big fan of wordpress, not just as a blogging platform but a CMS as well
