WordPress vs. Drupal, From Angela Byron & Marianne Masculino

I first heard about Drupal and its possibilities at OSCON. Sure, folks have been mad for Drupal forever, but that’s why a geek like me goes to OSCON – to learn about new things or to be newly exposed to old things.

I met Angie Byron, an award-winning Drupal contributor, at OSCON and we were so busy chatting about all the surrounding coolness that we didn’t get a chance to chat about Drupal or the similarities and differences between Drupal, which is an “open source content management platform”, and WordPress, a popular open source “publishing platform”.

Not to worry! Angie (aka webchick) posted her BlogHer presentation with Marianne Masculino on her site! Keep in mind, though, that this is the PDF of the presentation, not video, but it’s still worth the time to read. I learned several new things about Drupal, and frankly, I’m just itching to try it, steep learning curve or no.

Of particular interest are the ways that folks can contribute to either product, regardless of experience or level of technical skill. If you dig the product – whichever one you choose – there are many ways you can participate in its growth and success. Both environments are indicative of the kind of community that’s fostered by open source software development.

Check out the PDF, and be sure to let Angie and Marianne know what you think of their presentation.
