What is Drupal open source web development?

Drupal is an open source web platform that provides an endlessly expandable web environment for individuals, groups, businesses and communities. The Drupal platform is free and an out of the box installation provides a skeleton web site for you to start to build and develop, if you want to add video to your site, Drupal has a module for that, integrate social media, there’s a module for that too in fact there’s thousands of modules for almost anything. And all this is made possible by the huge Drupal open source community made up of thousands of web developers who continually improve the Drupal software and create new modules every day. These modules are all offered for free back to you and me to take and use for free on our website, Drupal is a sharing community and those that ‘take’ eventually also become part of that ‘giving’ sharing community and so the open source Drupal community grows from strength to strength.
