happy 8th birthday, drupal!

Man, we're getting old!

Today (January 15th) is the 8th anniversary of the day Drupal 1.0 was released. Although Dries had no idea at the time - it was a move that would not only change his life, but mine too...

January 2009 also marks the 5th anniversary of my starting to work on Drupal full time (after a few years of "hobby" involvement). My first project (at the time, actually a re-launch) still stands as one of my favourites: http://www.terminus1525.ca/ . Since then, Drupal has defined my career: from co-founding Bryght to my current life as a Lullabot. The community is home to some of my best friends and people I love.

Five years - full-time. No wonder I feel old.
