The Sustainable Drupal Manifesto

I give you these 15 Commandments

What is Sustainable Drupal?

Sustainable Drupal is our approach to developing systems that can be used, maintained and enhanced as easily as possible, with the lowest level of knowledge required to be effective.

As far as site-building approach, the basic development philosophy is to have a goal of:

  • a deliverable system
  • maintainable by non-developers (or, at least, non-expert developers)
  • that will benefit from the most community enhancements
  • without having to do new development (or as little as possible)
  • and providing any new features created back to the community

This session covers how we approach these goals and the time and budget benefits of this approach.
