This is a great time to be alive – to see technology evolving so rapidly.
It is both scary – as things become so complex and seemingly impossible to understand…
and exciting, as so many amazing new tools and systems are made accessible to us all.
Drupal is open source software maintained and developed by a community of 630,000+ users and developers. Anyone is free to download it and share it with others. This open development model means that people are constantly working to make sure Drupal is a cutting-edge platform that supports the latest technologies that the Web has to offer. The Drupal project's principles encourage modularity, standards, collaboration, ease-of-use and more.

Drupal Features & Benefits
Drupal is a publishing platform created by their vibrant community and bursting with potential. Use as-is or snap in any of thousands of free designs and plug-ins for rapid site assembly. Developers love its well-documented APIs. Designers love its flexibility. Site administrators love its limitless scalability.
Drupal's content management features make it easy to create and manage your site.
Organize & Find
Drupal comes with many tools to help you organize, structure, find and re-use your content. Categorize with taxonomy, automatically create friendly path URLs, create custom lists, associate content with other content on your site and create smart defaults for content creators.
Manage content with an easy-to-use Web interface. Drupal's flexibility handles countless content types including video, text, blog, podcasts and polls with robust user management, menu handling, real-time statistics and optional revision control.
Drupal comes with great options for new user accounts and user permissions. Users can be assigned one or more roles. Each role can be set up with fine-grained permissions, allowing that each user views and creates only what the administrator permits. The Drupal 7 admin theme makes administering a site easier than ever.
Drupal's focus on social publishing can help you create sites and applications to help your users express their opinions and engage with one another. You can have tight control over who can create, view, administer, publish and otherwise interact with content on your site.
Build internal and external-facing Websites in a matter of hours, with no custom programming. No need to start from scratch every time you build a new site either. You can utilize a multi-site configuration or choose a Drupal ‘distribution’ installation profile. These profiles provide a pre-defined configuration of site features and functions for a specific purpose or type of site, available as a single download.
Design and Display
Drupal's presentation layer allows designers to create highly usable, interactive experiences that engage users and increase traffic. Use an existing Drupal theme for your site, giving it an instant identity. If you can't find one you like, try designing your own, which others can also use.
With more than 16,000 available modules, the vast majority of your site's requirements can be addressed with Drupal core and available add-on modules. Focus your efforts on building great Websites, not re-creating features available elsewhere. You can even contribute modules for others to use.
Drupal makes it easy to connect your Website to other sites and services across the Web, using aggregation, feeds and search engine connection capabilities. Social networking integration is also widely supported to help you engage with a wider audience. Drupal offers your site easy ways to interact with external media and file services.
