Free Drupal

Thought by Ray Saltini, Director, FFW Center of Excellence

Are you still wondering what this thing called Drupal is that you keep hearing about? As part of FFW's participation in Global Drupal Trainings Days you can attend a free half-day training in Manhattan on December 14. 

You don't need to be a developer or even work in technology to benefit from this hands on training that will bring the power and flexibility of a modern web publishing system platform right to your very own laptop.

Today individual bloggers and large institutions alike are using Drupal (pronounced 'DROO-puhl ', not 'droo-PAHL' ) to publish content and help manage communities of online visitors. A large and active community of users and developers have helped make it a favorite among a cross section of web publishers. Drupal used to have a reputation for being inaccessible to all but the most advanced web developers. Thanks to a concerted effort, Drupal 7 the latest version of the software, is significantly more friendly to users with no developer experience. Services like www.drupalgardens.com offer a complete easy to use cloud hosted solution with no advanced web development skills whatsoever.

Enterprises like NBC, TimeWarner, ING, the White House, the Department of Defense, Pfizer, Princeton and MIT use Drupal to support their online presence and communities. Visit our Portfolio page or www.buytaert.net for more showcase Drupal projects.

FFW is proud to be a Drupal Association Supporting Partner. FFW organizes free and paid public and private Drupal training for individuals and organizations.
