As some of you probably know, every second Tuesday of each month we organize either WordPress or Drupal Café at our premises in Ruoholahti. There’s also been a couple of Concrete5 Cafés.

When it comes to versatility and popularity, Drupal is often the obvious CMS choice. Like all CMS solutions it has its issues but also a lot going for it. This is my second DrupalCamp and I think the topics of the presentations look quite representative of what Drupal is about and what challenges it poses to professionals delivering solutions to customers.
