Drupal is an English rendering of the Dutch word “druppel”, which means “drop” (as in a “water droplet”).
Originally developed by the Belgian computer scientist, Dries Buytaert in 2001. This open source software, used world-wide, is one of the most popular CMSs used for building and supporting websites. The popularity of Drupal is based primarily on its many features, its flexibility, and its ease of use.
