In all the lead up to and fun of WordFest a great anniversary was neglected. Huge congratulations to Drupal for 20 years of excellence. Over at Dries Buytaert’s blog, Drupal celebrates 20 years!: “In another decade, I predict Drupal’s incentive models for Makers will be a world-class example of Open Source sustainability. We will help figure out […]
There is a lot to discuss regarding the 2020 State of the Word, as well as of course the 2020 Steak of the Word. Subscribers to #MorningCoffee will get the full run down this weekend but I thought I’d do a quick compare and contrast – and maybe some side thoughts – on the two […]
Joost De Valk – his blog is pronounced Just De Talk (oh my goodness I’m kidding! but it would be fun, sorry Joost) – released CMS market share: November 2020 analysis: “This is my fourth biannual analysis of the CMS market share numbers provided by W3Techs.

So, tongue in cheek with the “finally,” I expected to be able download D9 when I woke up this morning but had to wait. Looks like it’s going to be a busy CMS weekend playing with Drupal 9 and Joomla 4 Beta. And yes this is very much fun for me 🙂
Good summary of the most boring major CMS update in the history of open source and this is a brilliant idea. Apple is been doing this for a number of years with MacOS and it’s proven to be an effective way of refactoring for performance and security. With no new features, Drupal 9 is reinforcing […]
This really is the year where open source based corporations are stepping up in a fury of acquisitions and today it’s Acquia acquiring Cohesion to continue the drive of simplifying site and page creation. What I find interesting in this purchase is that while WordPress vendors have been facing competition from the SaaS site firms, […]
From Dries, Eighteen years is also the voting age in the US, and the legal drinking age in Europe. I’m not sure which one is better. 🙂 The video is a who’s who of companies which is always amazing given the roots and efforts of all the open source CMS. Well done Drupal! Also, thank […]
