Backdrop Summit

Scheduled: Friday, Oct 7th, 2022 - 9 am - 12 pm

Backdrop CMS is the Drupal fork. It has most of the features seen in Drupal 8 and beyond (as well as some new ones), but with a built-in upgrade path for your current website. The focus of the Backdrop project is more affordable long-term website maintenance, starting with the cost of upgrades.

If you still have a Drupal 7 website, and are wondering what its future might hold, you might want to attend the Backdrop CMS summit at BADCamp this year. 

In this summit we will cover:

  • What is Backdrop CMS / Differences from + Similarities to Drupal
  • Running websites on both Backdrop and Drupal at the same time
  • API compatibility between legacy Drupal 7 code + Backdrop CMS
  • Cost of upgrading to Backdrop vs migrating to Drupal 8/9/10
  • An example upgrade that saved the organization $200,000 or more.
