Survey Results From "Is Drupal Hard?"

by Elliot Christenson on August 23, 2016 - 7:51am

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.

It's August 2017: You're Still On Drupal 6, and that's OK!

No, that's not a typo. No, I'm not typing from the future. This is just a little bit of a look forward.

Since myDropWizard announced that we will be extending our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support into 2018, we fully anticipate having this discussion a year from now. Here’s a top ten list of your options and why it is fine to wait until 2017 to make your upgrade decisions!

A Survey! Is Drupal Hard?

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!

Is now the time to Drop Drupal for Wordpress?

The wait for Drupal 8 has been long and winding. It’s been difficult, but there are reasons why we’ll make it through to the other side. I’m going to briefly offer up some reasons why I believe it’s important to “stay the course” with Drupal.
