Intro to Backdrop CMS
Backdrop CMS is the Drupal fork. It is a faster and less-complex version of Drupal 7 with Panels, Views, and Configuration Management added into core.
Backdrop CMS has already seen five on-time releases that have added more new core features: a built-in Rich-Text editor, built-in automatic URLs and page redirects, and a browser for adding new add-ons directly from your existing site. Backdrop also includes an updated administrative theme, a new core theme, dozens of UX improvements, as well as the expected improved APIs for developers.
We'll briefly go over:
- Why Backdrop was forked
- Project goals, philosophy and community
- What differentiates Backdrop from Drupal 7 and 8
Then we'll walkthrough a live demo highlighting some of it's major features.
Wes Ruvalcaba is a Project Management Committee member of Backdrop and responsible for a lot of the front-end development of Backdrop core.
