Dries Buytaert, the creator of Drupal, is visiting India in November. This will be his first ever visit to India. Prior to his visit, we thought it would be hear from him about his visit, his passion for technology and more about him in particular.
I’m really excited at hosting Dries on Kiruba.TV. The interview will take place on Thursday, 27th October. He will be joining an illustrious list of achievers that include Jimmy Wales, Sir Martin Sorrell, Anand Mahindra and Guy Kawasaki.
Dries Buytaert is the original creator and project lead for the Drupal open source web publishing and collaboration platform. Buytaert serves as president of the Drupal Association, a non-profit organization formed to help Drupal flourish.
