Survey Results From "Is Drupal Hard?"

A few weeks ago, we had A Survey! Is Drupal Hard?

First of all, thank you for taking the time to answer (even though we had a short-lived technical snafu!). At myDropWizard, we believe in transparency and openness, so I'm going to share the unfiltered data with you - as well as what my thoughts are in interpreting this non-scientific study.

A Survey! Is Drupal Hard?

by Elliot Christenson on August 1, 2016 - 5:04pm

I attended Drupal Camp WI at the University of Wisconsin-Madison this weekend.

There was a fantastic presentation called "Why Is Drupal So Hard?" by Joe Shindelar at

It got me thinking about myDropWizard, our clients, and what path people are taking at this current crossroad of Drupal 6 -> Drupal 7 -> Drupal 8 versus going a different path. Sometimes when you are too close to a question, you shouldn't be the one answering it. So, I'd like to ask "you," the world!

I'll share the results in a future blog post, and I'll share my thinking about what the results mean.

If you have any criticisms of the survey, please share those with me! I think this is just the first of a few surveys that we can do.

I hope this is fun, and I know it's not "scientific". However, I am hoping that it continues the discussion within the Drupal Community in regards to what we should do?

Without further ado: Here is the survey!
