Dancing with the Dragon: What I've Learned Contributing to the Backdrop CMS Project

Friday | 11:00 - 11:45am

Lessons for the Drupal community from what I've learned through my involvement in the Backdrop CMS community over the last year.


I've been active in the Drupal community for about 7 years. I regularly attend sprints and contribute when I can, but I often feel like a very small cog in a very large machine. For the last 12 months, I've been actively contributing to the Backdrop project and it's a very different experience for me. While Backdrop has inherited much in terms of code and culture from Drupal there is also an opportunity for Drupal to learn from the Backdrop experiment/experience. I'd like to share the story of how I got involved in Backdrop and what I've learned from the experience. I'd like to explore what Drupal can learn from Backdrop and how these two related communities can collaborate in the future and learn from each other.
