Rapid Website Development with Drupal: An Open Source Content Management System
Nathan T. Haug
Dr. Jon Beck, Faculty Mentor
The construction of websites often includes repetitive implementation of common features such as user management, form processing, news posting and page editing. Put together into one package, these features often fall under the umbrella-term Content Management System. One such system rapidly gaining popularity is Drupal, an open-source software package used at Google, The Onion Online, and the official Firefox community website. In partial fulfillment of a capstone project for the division of Math and Computer Science, Nathan Haug presents his research and development for the Drupal Content Management System. Over the past academic year, Nathan has made contributions to Drupal including module development, fault correction, documentation, and support. For anyone interested in the development of dynamic websites or open-source software, this presentation includes an overview of how Drupal works, demonstration websites, and details about contributing to the open-source community.
