Changes With the Drupal Association

See the original posting on DZone Python

The Drupal community is special because of its culture of adapting to change, determination and passion, as well as its fun and friendship. It is a combination that is hard to come by, even in the open source world. Our culture enabled us to work through long, but ground-breaking release cycles, which also prompted us to celebrate the release of Drupal 8 with 240 parties around the world.

Throughout Drupal’s 15 years history, that culture has served us really well. As the larger industry around us continues to change—see my DrupalCon New Orleans keynote for recent examples—we have been able to evolve Drupal accordingly. Drupal has not only survived massive changes in our industry; it has also helped drive them. Very few open source projects are 15 years old and still gaining momentum.
