Drupal is a web Content Management System (CMS) that I’ve used on several sites including JHU’s Digital Media Center, Maryland State Senator Paul Pinsky and Stressless Tests. It is by far the most flexible system I’ve ever used, able to run complex membership driven sites, e-commerce applications and so much more.
Well, apparently, President Obama’s web team found it just as compelling because the White House website is now running on Drupal, an Open Source CMS. I’m really an Open Source type of girl, it keeps costs down for my clients and allows me to flex my programming muscles. I love being able to say “I can find a way to do that,” when faced with a request from a client. When big companies and government organizations choose Open Source, it validates what so many developers and programmers already know!
