Recently Drupal celebrated its 15th birthday and while everybody is busy with learning Drupal 8 we would like to stop and take a look at where our beloved system emerged from 15 years ago.
Most of the people don’t know about history of Drupal and how it evolved from message board platform (Drop 1.0) to a fully scaled enterprise level CMS (Drupal 8.0).
Did you know some of key features of Drupal like modules, nodes, watchdog and multilingual support where available since Drupal 2.0?
We will look back and see:
Web before Drupal
How Drupal survived massive changes in web industry?
Why and how was Drupal created?
Tour through Drupal 1.0 to 8.0 and lookback of how key Drupal features we use today (eg: concept of modules, nodes and multilingual support) evolved over time
Drupal in future
Through a look in history, after this session you will have better understanding why some of Drupal architecture is done in the way it is.
