Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal, on WhiteHouse.gov's open source platform
WhiteHouse.gov was relaunched in November with an open source Drupal platform. Although Drupal is used by other government agencies in the United States and around the world, WhiteHouse.gov is the most visible customer turning to this platform.
Dries Buytaert is the creator and project lead for the Drupal open source web publishing and collaboration platform. A native of Belgium, he was elected in 2008 as Young Entrepreneurs of Tech by BusinessWeek as well as MIT TR 35 Young Innovator.
Buytaert recently talked with FierceGovernmentIT's Judi Hasson about the deployment of Drupal, and what it's impact will be.
