Re: [Refresh-Chicago] Drupal vs. Joomla vs. Wordpress

I've used Drupal and Wordpress lots, Joomla none. We've built some sweet functionality with Drupal, and I've been able to do tons myself with very limited coding knowledge once I got familiar with how to "think Drupal." In face i put together a project manager un Drupal to handle a simple repetitive but complex process we have internally, not touching a line of code, and its saving many hours each month... Then with custom modules, the sky's the limit.

Wordpress is great for simple blogs/content sites.

Obviously I'm a little biased, but I have my reasons ;)
