Drupal

Angela Byron is one of the lead developers and a community manager for the open source content management system Drupal, which OStatic is based on (along with sites such as The Onion and Fast Company). Few people have more influence on and knowledge of Drupal than she does, including working directly with Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal. We caught up with Angie and she weighed in on the future for Drupal, and what the open source movement needs.

What is Drupal, as you see it?

The normal definition I go with is that Drupal is three things: a) a content management system, which is essentially a web form-based tool for building and managing a website; Cool a content mangement framework, which provides robust APIs which can be used to add or modify any of Drupal's native functionality; and c) a thriving development community, always coming up with new and interesting innovations to ratchet up the power and flexibility of websites Drupal can build.

How did you come to be involved with Drupal? Are you involved in Drupal on a full-time or part-time basis, and how much time would you say you spend on Drupal?
