Backdrop CMS at the Twin Cities Drupal Camp (and security + affordability)

This year at the Twin Cities Drupal Camp there was a full-day Backdrop CMS training workshop to kick off the event. As opposed to previous workshops on Backdrop, the students in this class were primarily decision makers - those responsible for deciding whether Backdrop was suitable for their new projects, existing sites, entire departments, or website development shops. It would appear that it is finally time to start making decisions about the future!

Introducing Kalabox for Warpspeed Backdrop Development

Stardate 47634.44: We’ve encountered the Backdrop CMS, and found it to be the fastest way to make a flexible and modern website. Using the code and concepts we know from Drupal 7, it optimizes web development for 2016.

However, we are perplexed why our development workflows are still archaic and barbaric. To right this wrong, we must violate the Prime Directive and bring technology from the future.

Kalabox. Engage.

Built with Backdrop CMS

I’ve been building a lot of Backdrop sites lately. Hooray! Most of these new Backdrop sites will belong to people who were previously the proud owners of a Drupal site. But every now and then, I get to work with people who don’t have any experience with Drupal at all.  “It’s very similar to Drupal” isn’t going to be a convincing argument if they don’t already know (and love) Drupal. These people want to see sites that have been built with Backdrop.
