The UK Switches to Drupal and Releases Source Code

Filed under
Drupal

In the United States, the White House has led the march towards open source and free software by switching the http://www.whitehouse.gov/ website to the Drupal content management system. The government of the United Kingdom has decided to follow their lead. http://data.gov.uk/ acts as a central information repository for many of the UK's government agencies. The government recently converted the site to a very clean and very polished Drupal website.
