Backdrop CMS: a viable option for Drupal 7 websites

With Drupal 7 end-of-life in clear view, many of us are looking for next steps. Backdrop CMS might be it. Backdrop CMS is viable, affordable and — for some Drupal 7 websites — simply the best upgrade option. In this session, Aten Design Group senior developer Eric Toupin will:

  • Explain what Backdrop CMS is and how it could be a viable, performant and well supported option for Drupal 7 websites.
  • Share learnings from successfully upgrading two Stanford University sites from Drupal 7 to Backdrop.
  • Cover how Backdrop could save you up to 80% of the cost of a Drupal 8/9 upgrade.
  • Walk through how to determine if Backdrop is the right CMS for your organization.
