Drupal Scotland - Business Day and Camp

In a few weeks, Scotland's premier Drupal event for 2012 will take place at the University of Edinburgh, and we're going to be there.

Why Drupal?

Drupal has been in development for over 10 years, with millions of downloads, and hundreds of thousands of successful sites.

If a needed feature is not currently available, it has a proven community of developers who can be paid to do the work for you.
