WordPress & Drupal: Community and Contribution Differences and Lessons

by Michael Herchel

Published March 25, 2017 in Technology

WordPress and Drupal are two leading content management platforms on the web. They have similarities in community and architectures, but they also have remarkable differences in the same.

In this session I’ll go through community, contribution, architecture, and open source differences and lessons including:

Community similarities and differences
Plugin / Module conceptual and architectural differences
Differences in the communities’ approach to open source and contribution
Lessons that can be learned and adapted from all of the above.
This will not be an overly technical session, but will be suitable for anyone looking to learn from “off the WordPress island”.
