Jim Wilde Freelance Drupal Developer

The Secrets of Drupal!

I started this business as a Drupal freelancer, 15 years ago, around the same time open source technologies started to gain popularity. I was fascinated by the power of it and the cool things that were coming out of it. I'm here because there is an abundance of quality OSS (open source software) available now, and I think it offers incredible opportunities. My history includes software and business development, and the creation of the open source CMS, Drupal, was of particular interest to me because it allowed the non-techie to update and edit web content. The writable web had finally arrived!
