Backdrop CMS is a fork of the Drupal project. Backdrop 1 is very similar to Drupal 7, so if you love Drupal, you're likely to love Backdrop too!

Backdrop contains a few critically important improvements over Drupal 7 including a built-in configuration management tool and a revamped blocks & layouts system. Backdrop is highly compatible with Drupal 7, allowing the majority of development time to be spent on the websites and web applications that are built with Backdrop, and not on the integrating with the underlying software.

Come hear the Co-Founders talk about Backdrop CMS, see it in action, and bring your own hard questions. Backdrop 1.3 is out, and ready for use today. Decide for yourself if Backdrop is a good alternative for any of your current or future projects.

Learning Objectives & Outcomes:

  • Why was a fork necessary?
  • Key differences between Backdrop CMS and Drupal philosophy
  • State of the Backdrop project today
