Why I Hate Drupal
We've all heard Drupal can run every site from your personal blog to massive social networks. The framework is flexible and powerful enough to do anything. The showcase list of Drupal sites is impressive and growing. The community behind the magic continues to expand exponentially. The awards keep pouring in: Best Open Source CMS, Most Valuable Person, Top Innovator.
This session will take a good, hard look at everything that's wrong with Drupal. From the bewildering interface to the API's that aren't, it's time to take a step back from the Drupal love-in and take a serious look at what we've done. We'll cover all that's wrong about both the code and the 'community' behind it.
Attendees should hope to get a reality check and some serious advice about how to make it all better.
