Nate Haug: Forking Drupal

Lullabot has a new monthly show, hosted by Matthew Tift, featuring in-depth interviews with open source and free software advocates.

This inaugural episode of Hacking Culture introduces the idea of software forking, one of the fundamental characteristics of free software, and Matthew talks with Nate Haug about Backdrop, a Drupal fork.

This episode (which augments Drupalize.Me episode 26) explores a variety of topics, including how Nate got involved in free software development, the philosophical and structural differences between Backdrop and Drupal, similarities that Backdrop shares with other well-known software forks, and the release of Backdrop 1.0 on January 15, 2015.
