The aim of this group is:

  • to give members an opportunity to share their stories about building a website with Drupal for their startups
  • to create a space for those willing to learn more about Drupal and ways it can help online businesses
  • to foster a sense of entrepreneurship and, at the same time, offer technical guidance to those who may not be familiar with Drupal

Over time, it is hoped that this group will become an important part of the drupal community as more people come to learn Drupal for developing online businesses, be they ecommerce websites or social networks.

With the "digital nomads" breakout session at DrupalCon Portland still on my mind, I came across an intriguing blog post today by Nithin Coca about the so-called "rise and fall" of Couchsurfing.

Local News & Journalism

Hey folks. I'm starting a local news website in my small city in Massachusetts. Has anyone out there tackled this space before? I'd love to pool some wisdom about news sites in Drupal. I'm thinking about starting a group for news & journalism. Let me know if you're interested.

Stuff I'm working with:
- News articles
- Blogging by several different contributors
- Ads, highly user-targeted
- Calendar of local events
- Forums
- Implementing canned themes, since I don't have CSS or PHP skills

Using Drupal to Prototype a Start Up and course on learning Drupal

Glad to find this group. In addition to being a Drupal web developer and trainer, I'm also working on my own start up, built on Drupal.

Last summer I participated in an incubator for social enterprise startups and there was a great deal of talk about the pros and cons of using Drupal for a tech startup, particularly comparing it Rails.

The one point I like to make is that even if Drupal isn't ideal for your startup once it scales, it's hard to find a better tool for building a working prototype.
