Drupal versus Wordpress is the theme for the Drupalcafé of July 11th, 2013. The market share of the open source content management system Wordpress is and remains much larger than Drupal market share and continues to grow. What drives so many to choose Wordpress and what drives others to choose Drupal? Is one better than the other? And which CMS is best for which need? We'll look forward to a nice discussion on this topic. Will you join us?

Drupalcafé is an open meeting forum, for- and by web enthusiasts. Drupalcafé features presentations, open discussions and inspiring demonstrations. Whilst enjoying a drink, we present and discuss relevant developments with regard to Drupal open source software, but also adjacent topics. Drupalcafé is a monthly event, freely accessible and visited by ICT managers, software developers and people who are interested in open source CMS software.

Liliana Gaete and Ide Braaksma of One Shoe each have experience with Drupal and Wordpress development and implementations. They will present each highlight the various aspects of the CMS systems. Afterwards, there will be room for Q&A and discussion. The program is;

- 17.00 doors open
- 17.30 presentation Drupal
- 18.15 presentation Wordpress
- 18.45 Q&A
- 19.00 drinks
- 20.00 end

    I would have loved to visit this meetup since I'm a WordPress core developer. Unfortunately I am abroad.

    Goed idee te zien hoe andere platformen zich verhouden tot Drupal
