Drupal Founder Dries Buytaert Visits Our Studio

by
Harry Bartlett

We had the privilege of Dries Buytaert visiting our studio recently. Dries created the open-source content management system Drupal and is also the founder of Acquia. Acquia develops web software and provides commercial support for Drupal. Acquia is the fastest growing software company in Inc Magazine's lists of 500 fastest growing companies.

Digital Agency Welcome's Drupal Founder

Dries described how he initially developed Drupal to communicate with people who lived in his building in 2002. Now Drupal powers some of the largest websites such as Weather.com and MSNBC.com. A labor of love for 7 years before he started Acquia, Dries is an incredibly approachable and well-spoken pioneer and innovator.

We had the please of showing Dries some of the sites we have built with Drupal such as The Presencing Institutes' ulabExa, and the Concussion Foundation. Dries easily knocked us out showing the new Boston.com site Acquia and Genuine Interactive created, very impressive as well as new personalization software such as Acquia's Lift.

A true honor to host him for an hour - thanks for coming by Dries!
