  • Drupal is a good fit for Stanford
    “Die luft der freiheit weht”
  • Stanford in numbers
    That’s a lot of projects -- actually that figure only represents “sponsored” projects
    This environment creates lots of websites
  • Our Stanford Sites platform hosts over 1,000 websites
    It runs on a stack of about ~100 modules but we only had to make a dozen or so ourselves

    “many eyes tame complexity”
    also helps with security threats
  • There is an insular local Drupal community at Stanford, but we interact with the global Drupal community
    Shops that compete for business have individuals that are friends and colleagues;
    Everyone comes together for DrupalCon
  • We can’t handle it all ourselves,
    BUT Drupal companies exist!
  • This book should be considered required reading for companies that are delving into open source
    Written 15 years ago, but still extremely pertinent today
  • Open Source in the Enterprise
