Drupal has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years - and the media industry is no exception.

Berlingske Media currently runs 7 Drupal-installations serving 31 sites - and more coming soon.

This lightning talk will focus on the experiences we have developing news and media sites in Drupal and our thoughts for the future.

Arne Jørgensen is softwarearchitect at Berlingske Media.
