Jim Wilde Freelance Drupal Developer

The Secrets of Drupal!

Fifteen years ago, as the world began to awaken to the transformative potential of open-source technologies, I embarked on a journey as a Drupal freelancer. It wasn't just a career move; it was a passion ignited by the sheer innovation and capabilities unfolding before my eyes.

Why am I still here, you ask? The landscape of open-source software (OSS) has exponentially evolved since then. Today, there's a rich tapestry of quality OSS that not only exemplifies technological advancements but also unlocks boundless opportunities. With a history steeped in software and business development, my path was illuminated further when Drupal emerged on the scene. This wasn't just another tool. It was a paradigm shift. For the first time, even those without a technical background could take the reins of their web content. The era of a democratized, writable web had dawned.

Join me in this exciting era. Together, let's explore the infinite possibilities that Drupal and the world of open source offers. Whether you're tech-savvy or not, there's a place for everyone in this digital revolution. Let's write the future, one line of code at a time.
