The Drupal Distro for Publishers
OpenPublish is a packaged distribution of Drupal, tailored to the needs of online publishers. First released about a year ago, it has quickly gained momentum. It already has hundreds of active installations, thousands of downloads, professional support from me and my crew as well as other Drupal shops. It is the obvious choice for news publishers who want to get a head-start on Drupal.
As a senior freelance Drupal consultant, solutions engineer, working in NYC and New Jersey, NJ, I've performed work on multiple levels: From front-end (Drupal template/twig design or themer), backend (drupal module developer), and as a project manager (used AGILE as SDLC), a business analyst, and a solutions engineer for MTA, Rutgers and others in the area.
If you are new to Drupal, the first thing is to get familiar with it. Drupal is an open-source web application framework with a content management system (CMS) bolted to it. Drupal has a lot of power that can quickly get out of hand and become unwieldy. So, whether you're using Drupal or not, I hope to provide you with aggregated information on the different options to convert or migrate to Drupal (a page out of Drupal handbook on migration).
