  • • full-featured CMS (Content Management System) • many claim: CMF (Content Management Framework) Free open source modular framework and content management system. Written in PHP. First release in 2001. Started by Dries Buytaert. Currently on Version 6. Very community driven.
  • The name Drupal, pronounced "droo-puhl," derives from the English pronunciation of the Dutch word "druppel," which means "drop." (and drop is “village” in Dutch). Started out with two college students at U of Antwerp who built a social site on their local network. Started in 1999 by Dries Buytaert (Belgium)
