Lost inside the machine

We live just once in this life. Follow your passion, Computer Nerd. The joy and the power and the fulfillment. Life is nought without these things. Computer programmers are the cream of the earth. Drupal Web Developers shall inherit the earth. This technological world. A world of logic and intertwined logic and convoluted logic. There's order to our chaos, however. The protocols guide us. There's a method to the madness.

Lost inside the machine. Mad scientists, all of us. Nerds are curious and experimental. We live life on our own terms. We are not shackled by conformity; we choose our paths by ourselves.

We all seek fulfillment in life. We all seek love, happiness and self-actualization. We all have intellectual itches that need to be scratched. With the Internet you can self-learn anything nowadays. But where do you go to mingle with other computer nerds?

Not finding your true place and path in life is akin to not living. Computer geeks have strong drives.

Drupal is free, open source software that can be used by individuals or groups of users -- even those lacking technical skills -- to easily create and manage many types of Web sites. The application includes a content management platform and a development framework. Types of sites that Drupal can be used for include:

    blogs
    personal or corporate Web sites
    portals
    forums
    e-commerce sites
    intranets
    resource directories
    social networking sites.

Drupal is written in the PHP programming language. The software is ready-to-use upon download and also includes a Web-based installer and add-on modules. The software supports content management, collaborative authoring, newsletters, podcasts, image galleries, peer-to-peer networking, file uploads/downloads and more. Drupal originated as a bulletin board system developed by Dries Buytaert in the Netherlands, and became an Open Source project in 2001. When establishing his original Drop.org Website, Buytaert wanted to call the site "dorp" ("village" in Dutch), but made a typo when checking the domain name, and decided the altered form sounded better (Drupal is a transliteration of the Dutch " druppel " which means droplet). Drupal has been downloaded over a million times and is the focus of a large development community.

Drupal is offered under a General Public License

(GPL).

Advantages of Drupal:

1. Flexibility. One of the major selling points of Drupal is its ability to create and manage a wide variety of content types, including but not limited to videos, polls, blogs, podcasts, and statistics. Because of this feature, Drupal enables a flexible design platform to create content-rich websites for a variety of different markets like media or commerce. The script also includes capabilities of design elements editing, which makes it easy to create both simple and complicated web page configurations.
2. Customizability. In addition to being flexible, Drupal is also highly customizable. Boasting over 16,000 modules and plug-ins, Drupal allows you to modify, adjust and implement an endless wealth of additional custom features into your website like CRM, security, social media and SEO.
3. Scalability. Another major strength of Drupal is that it’s tremendously scalable. You can exponentially grow the number of your web pages without changing a thing. Because of this, Drupal is great at accommodating content growth. It’s also great at alternating between periods of constant traffic and high traffic spikes, which is why it's used by weather.com and whitehouse.gov.
4. Community. Drupal is an open source CMS. Aside from being a licensing option, open source is really a culture and an approach to technology that revolves around the free exchange of ideas and innovation. The open source community offers extensive public documentation, well-developed discussion boards, chat and mailing lists, alongside an air of approachable online culture.
5. Security. Last, but far from least, Drupal also offers unshakable security. As of 2015, the annual Drupal security report notes that “there have been no widely exploited vulnerabilities in Drupal core for which there was no patch or upgrade available at the time of public disclosure." The closest known instance was an exploit in a common XML-RPC code library that was in use in early versions of Drupal. All vendors using the library were at risk, but no wide attack was known to be in play.” In short, the CMS is highly secure and offers regular patches and safeguarding from exploits, making it great for enterprise clients.
