Happy 20th birthday, Drupal! 🎂

Drupal creator Dries Buytaert with lots of reason to celebrate:

On January 15, 2001, exactly 20 years ago, I released Drupal 1.0.0 into the world. I was a 22 years old, and just finished college. At the time, I had no idea that Drupal would someday power 1 in 35 websites, and impact so many people globally.

Quite the accomplishment. Congrats to Dries and the entire Drupal community!

In this post, he also shares why he’s still working on the project and details 3 birthday wishes for Drupal:

  1. Never stop evolving
  2. Continue our growing focus on ease-of-use
  3. Economic systems to sustain and scale Open Source

Those sound like noble wishes to me. 💯
