The future of Drupal in numbers
The session will make a quick time travel to the state of Drupal one year and a half ago and compare it with the current state. We will revise the data from the Master thesis project I have realized at the Ecole Polytechnic Federale de Lausanne. During the finalization of the project, I gave a talk at Dev Days Seville, where I presented the status of the research and conclusions based on it.
We will then take a look at what happened meanwhile, especially after the bigger events like Drupalgeddon 2.0. Presentation will cover following key points:
- Drupal in numbers (Site installations, distributions, modules and overall usage)
- CMS market, public and private sector (comparison to other content management systems)
- Drupal community (Events, communication, comparison with WordPress community)
- Drupal open-source (Open-source contribution, financing etc.)
Previously, I was working at MD Systems, where I finished my master project. Currently, I am working at Wunder, as a Frontend Developer, working closely with Drupal. Before MD Systems, I have been a freelancer, with a variety of WordPress and frontend projects.
