About Drupal

Originally developed by Dries Buytaert as a Message Board to chat with his friends at the University of Antwerp, Drupal became an Open Source Platform in 2001 and slowly evolved from drop.org into a Content Management Framework that is used as a back-end platform for approximately 2.2% of all websites from Personal Blogs to Corporate, Political, and Government Sites.

The name Drupal derives from an English rendering of the Dutch word "druppel" which means "drop"; the logo was developed by community member Steven Wittens incorporating a droplet.

The core contains features common to Content Management Systems including User Account Registration, Menu Management, RSS Feeds, Taxonomy (a Classification System), Page Layout Customization, and System Administration.

The Drupal Core Installation serves as one size fits all i.e. from a Simple Website, Blog, Internet Forum, or Community Platform providing User Generated Content; although Drupal is considered to be to most complicated CMS to manage, it is the most technically advanced and enjoys popularity among seasoned web developers.

Drupal received significant attention in 2003 after building a customized Drupal-based project called DeanSpace for Howard Dean who was one of the candidates in the U.S. 2004 Presidential Election and over the years Drupal made significant improvements; by 2008 had reached 1.4 million downloads winning many awards such as Open Source CMS Awards and the Webware 100 three times in a row.

Some of the high profile companies that use Drupal include London Gatwick Airport, General Electric, Pfizer, University of Minnesota, Linux, The Economist, Weather.com, Georgetown University to mention but a few.

About Joomla!

Joomla! is a free and Open Source Content Management System for Publishing Content for websites, blogs, custom apps and even Intranets; Joomla! provides a web presence for SMEs, Government Organizations, Non-Profits and Large Organizations worldwide such as Citibank, eBay, General Electric, Harvard University, Ikea, McDonald's and Sony to mention but a few.

Functions and features include Page Caching, RSS feeds, News Flashes, Blogs, Search, and Multilingual Support

In 2014, Joomla! surpassed the milestone of 50 million downloads i.e. 11 years after WordPress and it is currently the second most popular CMS globally accounting for more than 6% of Internet Websites and Blogs etc.

Joomla was started on August 17th 2005 when some of the development team felt that Mambo’s non-profit organization established to fund and protect the project from lawsuits failed to meet expectations; a new organization (OpenSourceMatters.org) more suitable to meet such expectations and Joomla! Was born.

Andrew Eddie was appointed as project leader and who played an active role in building a network of thousands of developers within days of his appointment.

The name Joomla! is a phonetic spelling for the Swahili word "Jumla", which means "all together”; it was chosen by the entire development team behind Mambo committed to protecting the interests of the project and community.

With over 8,000 extensions including components, modules, plugins, templates, and language packs and more than a million downloads per month, Joomla attributes its steady growth to a number of factors; to begin with, flexibility and openness of its software enables developers to combine Joomla features with other Open Source Platforms.

Joomla! Has continuous innovations within its six-month release cycle and a growing Developer Community currently accounting of over 600,000 forum members; with more than 3 percent of the Web running on Joomla! (and a CMS Market Share of more than 9 percent), Joomla’s ease-of-use, reliability and extendibility has resulted in Joomla! becoming the second most popular CMS Foundation Platform to date.
