I’ve been working with Drupal full-time at my day job for about 2 years now and the journey has been tough at times. However, I wouldn’t go back to a CMS like WordPress at this point.

Drupal has been called a Content Management ‘Platform’ or ‘Framework’ for a long while now and essentially this tells us that Drupal is used as a CMS very frequently, but it’s more flexible than that. Web apps and the like are all within reach with Drupal.

Drupal 7 was a big step up from Drupal 6 IMO, but with Drupal 8 on the way next year the platform will change quite a bit. I’m hearing that Twig will be the primary templating language.

If you’re looking for a good book check out ‘The Definitive Guide to Drupal 7’. has a ton of documentation. I’ve found 90% of everything I’ve needed on their site.

Drupal is very powerful and once you understand the ins and outs you’ll be able to do more in less time than you ever could with WordPress. Give it a go man!
