Backdrop is Drupal 7. You know where it came from. Come see where it's headed.


Backdrop CMS is the Drupal fork. Since its first release over 4 years ago, what has changed?

Is Backdrop substantially easier to use than the Drupal it was forked from? Is it more affordable to support? Are the APIs you know and love still stable and functioning as they were? Is the community growing and healthy, or better yet, is it thriving?

If you haven't been following along with all the improvements to the software and growth in the community, this session will give you a good overview of where things are today. We'll cover all the major new features that were added in every on-time release, as well as point out when infrastructure and community tools were put into place.

A fork is what happens when one path forward branches into two. Come see our new direction!
