Drupal is designed to be the perfect content management solution for non technical users who need both simplicity and flexibility. Drupal achieves this through its modular approach to site building. Unlike other CMSs, Drupal isn’t a pre build house, but rather a collection of blocks, iron rods, wood, frames, etc., that a builder can easily connect together. With Drupal, a maker could build a house, but she or he could just as easily build a shop, theatre, or office. For this reason, Drupal may be described as both a content management system and a content management framework—one unified system that strives to have the strengths of both, without their deficiencies.Read more
What is "version control", and why should you care? Version control is a system that records changes to a file or set of files over time so that you can recall specific versions later.
Versioning has a vital role in development field, so we use Git.
Introduction to GNU/Linux Command Line
It is important in web development that in which environment we are coding. We, in Zyxware believe in Free Software Services and we promote open source technologies. GNU/Linux is the best platform for Drupal to build on.
