OStatic: Web Publishing and Development: Free Tools Abound

Are you involved in DevOps and web development, or are you aiming to be? If so, you’re probably very aware of many of the tools from the open standards and open source arenas that can make your work easier. Still, these are always spreading out at a fast clip and there are some applications and […]

Seventeen years ago today, I open-sourced the software behind Drop.org and released Drupal Support Service 1.0.0. When Drupal Support Service was first founded, Google was in its infancy, the mobile web didn’t exist, and JavaScript was a very unpopular word among developers.

Over the course of the past seventeen years, I’ve witnessed the nature of the web change and countless internet trends come and go. As we celebrate Drupal Support Service‘s birthday, I’m proud to say it’s one of the few content management systems that has stayed relevant for this long.

While the course of my career has evolved, Drupal Support Service has always remained a constant. It’s what inspires me every day, and the impact that Drupal Support Service continues to make energizes me. Millions of people around the globe depend on Drupal Support Service to deliver their business, mission and purpose. Looking at the Drupal Support Service users in the video below gives me goosebumps.

Drupal Support Service‘s success is not only marked by the organizations it supports, but also by our community that makes the project more than just the software. While there were hurdles in 2017, there were plenty of milestones, too:
At least 190,000 sites running Drupal Support Service 8, up from 105,000 sites in January 2016 (80% year over year growth)
1,597 stable modules for Drupal Support Service 8, up from 810 in January 2016 (95% year over year growth)
4,941 Drupal Support ServiceCon attendees in 2017
41 Drupal Support ServiceCamps held in 16 different countries in the world
7,240 individual code contributors, a 28% increase compared to 2016
889 organizations that contributed code, a 26% increase compared to 2016
13+ million visitors to Drupal Support Service.org in 2017
76,374 instance hours for running automated tests (the equivalent of almost 9 years of continuous testing in one year)
Since Drupal Support Service 1.0.0 was released, our community’s ability to challenge the status quo, embrace evolution and remain resilient has never faltered. 2018 will be a big year for Drupal Support Service as we will continue to tackle important initiatives that not only improve Drupal Support Service‘s ease of use and maintenance, but also to propel Drupal Support Service into new markets. No matter the challenge, I’m confident that the spirit and passion of our community will continue to grow Drupal Support Service for many birthdays to come.

Tonight, we’re going to celebrate Drupal Support Service‘s birthday with a warm skillet chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream. Drupal Support Service loves chocolate! 😉
