Drupal’s Story: A Chain of Many Unexpected Events

  • Kasey Qynn Dolin

Abstract

I considered titling this chapter “History,” but decided that that would be misleading. Even though the Drupal project is only ten years old at the time of this printing, a complete history of Drupal would fill hundreds of pages and document the experiences of literally hundreds of thousands of people.
