Interview With Dries Buytaert

Filed under

In this interview we talk with Dries. In specific, we talk about:

* Building specialized commercial support for open source technology
* Making cloud computing more viable for widespread use
* The relationship between Drupal and Linux distros
* Lowering the barriers to the deployment of Drupal
* Integrating multiple functionalities and components into one solution

Scott Swigart: Dries, could you lay out some of your background for us, including your experience with Drupal and the new work you’ve been doing with Acquia?

Dries Buytaert: Sure. I’m based in Belgium, and I am the founder and project lead of the Drupal project.
