Backdrop CMS enables people to build highly customized websites, affordably, through collaboration and open source software.
Backdrop CMS is a fork of the Drupal project. Backdrop 1.0 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 layout system. There are other improvements too, but Backdrop is hightly compatible with Drupal 7, allowing the majority of development time to be spent on the websites and web applications that are built with Backdrop.
Come hear the Founding Forkers talk about Backdrop CMS, see it in action, and ask your own hard questions. Backdrop 1.0 is out, and ready for use today. It may be time to decide if Backdrop is a viable alternative for any of your projects.
