In the decade since its quiet emergence onto the scene, Drupal has become an industry standard in the web content management and web publishing field, one with an almost cult-like following among developers.

With its sophisticated, easy-to-use Drupal Core system and thousands of modules for additional customization, Drupal has something to offer everyone, whether you’re a high-performance development team or a small business owner who doesn’t know the first thing about Web Content Management Systems (Web CMS).

The rise of Drupal has led companies of all sizes to consider it for their content management needs, and for good reason. Its open source nature makes it incredibly cost-effective, while its options for customization are unmatched for flexibility.

But there’s a catch.

To support Namecheap's opposition of SOPA and PIPA and to help preserve the open web, the Drupal Association has decided to move its SSL certificate to Namecheap.

After Namecheap, the leading domain name registrar, web host, and SSL certificate provider, stepped up against SOPA and PIPA in 2011, hundreds of new companies joined Namecheap's family, including the Drupal Association, which has elected to move its SSL certificate to Namecheap.

Namecheap has donated over $64,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation to help the organization fight for our digital rights. Namecheap also blacked out its front page on January 18th, urging US customers to petition their government officials to ask them to shelve both acts in the House and in the Senate.

Drupal Development showcases West Health Policy Center's 'smart technologies' such as mobile health monitors and clinical research analytics.

Last week, MJD Interactive Agency launched a website for the newly announced West Health Policy Center (http://www.westhealthpolicy.org). The Policy Center aims to lower health care costs through improved reimbursement models, innovative ‘smart technologies’ such as mobile health monitors, and advanced clinical research analytics.

Philanthropic pioneers Gary and Mary West have made a multi-million dollar, multi-year commitment to establish the West Health Policy Center in Washington, D.C. with the goal of saving more than $100 billion in cumulative health care costs within 10 years by identifying common sense changes in reimbursement and regulation that can be acted on immediately and do not require legislative action.

MJD Interactive was again contracted for the custom build of the Policy Center site after launching a very successful site for the West Health Investment Fund last quarter in 2011

What exactly do you spend your days thinking about when you're a digital director of a presidential campaign that's on track to win the Republican nomination? Zac Moffatt, 32, leads the digital side of the Mitt Romney campaign. He moved up to Boston last spring with his wife after some years in Virginia and jobs throughout Republican politics, including work on Bush-Cheney '04, with the Republican National Committee, and a variety of high and low profile races with his firm, Targeted Victory. We talked recently about the shortcomings of judging digital by the same sort of raw metrics we apply to, say fundraising (see, the Washington Post's @MentionMachine ), about how much of tech politics is happening behind the scenes, and about what digital success looks like.

By almost any measure, Drupal, an open source content management system/Web platform, should be a poster child for open source success. The PHP-based CMS, the first version of which was released by Dries Buytaert in 2001, powers the Web presence of a number of major organisations, including, since 2009, Whitehouse.gov.

When it comes what other open source projects can learn from Drupal's success, Buytaert, who is now chief technology officer of Acquia and remains Drupal's project lead, says that although he doesn't have all the answers — and that "there's no one right way" to do things — there are some lessons to be learned.

The social business revolution has already begun. In today’s highly interactive business landscape, Drupal —a powerful open-source, enterprise level web infrastructure—empowers companies to harness the Internet’s social strength to deliver real business value. On January 26 the power of Drupal will come to San Diego and the Southern California business community.

Leaders in the Drupal community invite executive technophiles and IT leaders to join them for the Drupal Business Summit San Diego, a one-day event for high-level decision makers designed to quickly explain the fast-growing Drupal technology and the benefits it can have on their organizations.

A cornucopia of different companies have already implemented Drupal to create communities, get closer with their customers and employees, and improve top-and-bottom line ROI.

“Drupal is a robust enterprise-grade platform that has powered some of the busiest and most expansive websites in the world,” explains Ron Huber, president of San Diego-based Achieve Internet, a leading Drupal technology company. “Its flexibility as an open-source technology can save companies serious money while delivering the performance they need. We hope the Drupal Business Summit will help enlighten the San Diego and Southern California business communities of that potential.”
