Even though North Studio has a tightly integrated team that includes both marketers and developers, sometimes we have trouble understanding each other when it comes to more technical stuff.
So, in an effort to bridge the knowledge gap between our two teams, I’ve started the “Ask A Drupal Developer” series, where I’ll periodically ask the dev team to answer a short question (because they’re busy people!).
For today, I’ve asked the simplest and most obvious question I could think of: What’s your favourite thing about Drupal?
(If you want to read bios of our team members, visit the Our Team page!)
Josh Mark (also one of our blog authors) told me: “I think the best part of Drupal isnt anything within Drupal, but the Drupal community. I cant explain why its as popular as it is, but its popularity has lead to a lot of major, quality modules being developed for it.”
Ray Kuyenhoven says: “My favourite thing about Drupal is its customization.
Ryan James, our CTO, says: “I like Drupal for its adaptability, extendability, alterability and flexibility, the huge community of developers who support it, and the fact that highly visible organizations like The White House, NASA, The Grammy Awards, and others have adopted it.”
Aaron Pridy: “My favourite thing are Drupal’s use of content-types allow for easy separation and grouping of different types of content that is logical to the end-user.”
Tom Jarvis: “Customizability. With most CMSs, you’re restricted in one way or another. Drupal’s a blank canvas.”
So here you have them: our Drupal developers talking about their favourite features of Drupal. It seems that customization is a big thing, and it must be nice to be able to deliver exactly what the client wants without being limited by an unflexible CMS.
Is there something YOU’d like to ask our Drupal developers? Let us know in the comments or by email!
