Hey fellas ! How are all the newbies to drupal planning to proceed in their endeavor of mastering Drupal. What are your motivations behind learning drupal, in the sense, job opportunities in drupal specific web development, or personal client serving, or may be current employer requirement. Thanks.
For me job opportunities in drupal specific web development. So that i learn drupal..
Ok, i see that you want to explore the market there for drupal skills. But id I may ask you, what makes you so sure that there are Drupal job opportunities that its worth the effort to learn it? I mean, lets say you are good in PHP, then also you can land a decent job, or hone your php skills, why bother to learn a new framework instead of making your strength stronger.
Greetings from New Zealand,
I have been using Joomla for quite a few years now. While I find it a great 'user friendly' CMS with perhaps the best quality themes you can get for a CMS, tonnes of extensions (Joomla for modules) and a healthy user community, I find it somewhat lacking in flexibility. What I mean is that it's a fantastic tool if you need to get a relatively basic, but professional looking, website up and running quickly. You can upload and setup the script, install the extensions and template you need and presto - you've got a website! It's when you need more control that you find your hands tied.
Drupal, on the other hand, demands so much more from you, but what it offers in return is quite simply amazing. If you are prepared to learn, read and work with it - even if at first you don't succeed, you will find that it is an extremely powerful framework that can be configured to literally do anything you need it to do. Don't be afraid to fail, and read as much as you can. The more time you spend with it - the more familiar it becomes, and the more familiar it is to you - the easier it is to use!
All the best,
Greetings! I totally agree with you. Drupal is more powerful, flexible and reliable framework than joomla. Thats why I wanted to start with Drupal for my personal use and to meet some client requirements.
Indeed it has steeper learning curve, and hope that this effort of learning drupal pays out well.
Shane, if I may ask you, what did you charge(rate per hour) for Joomla/Drupal site development in NZ? Or do you sell it as a product (the complete site/applications) ?
Thanks. Cheers !
I am new to drupal working for the social networking website
I really love to read articles that have good information and ideas to share to each logo design
reader. I hope to read more from you guys and continue that good work that is really inspiring to us.
First of all i had visions of different communities that i would like to create. I tested joomla, typo3, contao (typolight) and some smaller individual cms solutions. After getting more and more fascinated by community building and siteperformance i heard about drupal. Think that was 1 or 2 years ago. I tested it and thought that it is quite nice, but didnÂ´t have the time to study drupal because i had to finish my bachelorexam.
After having a job in an advertisement agency i decided to work as a freelancer. So i did some jobs and sometimes i got this feeling that i need to build something different - just for me! Not for customers.
And here iÂ´m testing, reading, failing and having fun with drupal and its modules. :) IÂ´m really impressed by the power of drupal. Further on it is so flexible as anyone need it - and that is the real power.
