Dries Buytaert
Drupal Project Founder

The True State of Drupal 8

Dries Buytaert is a man of many interests. He holds a doctorate in computer science and engineering. He is a photographer. He is a husband and father. He is Belgian. However, you may know him best as the original creator and project lead for the Drupal open source Web publishing platform or “the reason there is a DrupalCon in the first place”.

In addition to serving as the president of the Drupal Association, he is also the co-founder and CTO of Acquia, a company that offers hosting, technical support, and services for the Drupal platform, and the co-founder of Mollom, a web service that helps identify content quality and stop website spam.

Dries Buytaert has announced he is introducing a new phase into the Drupal core development cycle: "Feature Completion Phase" timed to embrace the core sprints taking place at DrupalCon Sydney, giving those people working hard on major strategic initiatives more time to complete their work. His Sydney keynote will unveil the true state of Drupal 8, and the next steps on the road to it's release.
