Why use Backdrop CMS?

 Create and manage your own content.

Easily create content by formatting text and uploading images. It's not necessary to know web programming languages (or hire someone who does) to get your content on the web.

 Control access with permissions.

Different people can have different levels of access to your content. Use Backdrop's robust permission system to define roles that exactly match your needs.

 Works great on phones & tablets.

Every Backdrop site is always responsive. Visitors enjoy a great mobile experience, and administrators can create and edit content from phones or tablets.

 Serve pages fast, even on shared hosting.

Backdrop is lean and mean. With a commitment to performance, you can expect to see continued improvements in each version. Watch your pages fly!

  Add more functionality quickly.

Browse and install add-ons directly from your Backdrop site. No need to scour the internet for available modules, themes, and layouts.

  Customize everything, everywhere.

Need to add your own special touches? Backdrop has a robust API and can be modified in any number of ways with only a few lines of custom code.

 Security is a priority

Backdrop CMS was designed with robust security in mind. New security issues are addressed quickly and responsibly.

 Deploy changes easily.

Make configuration changes on a development site. Deploy those changes to production with the easy-to-use Configuration Management interface.

BADCamp 2017 ~ All the Things

There was much fun in the air at BADCamp 2017!  It is so great to meet with coworkers, teammates, and friends. Beautiful brisk walks in the morning, great sessions, great networking, food, and company in the evenings.  This is my personal journey through BADCamp as seen through my lens.
