Greenopolis.com Sponsors Drupalcon Boston 2008

Greenopolis.com (Beta) was featured as a Gold Sponsor of Drupalcon Boston 2008, a gathering of over 800 Drupal professionals.

Boston, MA, March 3, 2008 - Greenopolis.com (Beta) was featured as a Gold Sponsor of Drupalcon Boston 2008. Over 800 Web professionals gathered at the four day event to discuss the future of Drupal and Web content creation. The convention is held twice yearly in different cities around the globe. Greenopolis.com (Beta) is an educational and collaborative "green" social networking website commissioned by Waste Management and developed by CommonPlaces e-Solutions, Inc. The site was created entirely with Drupal. So what is Drupal? According to drupal.org, "Drupal is a free software package that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content on a website." Drupal is also open-source, which means that it can be modified and improved by anyone that uses it. "It was great to see all of these members of the Drupal community come together in one place and freely exchange ideas. We all left with improved skills and fresh ideas to create better websites and better serve our clients," said Seth Cohn, a Senior Internet Engineer at CommonPlaces. Drupal places a large emphasis on user interaction, and facilitates the creation of Blogs, polls, forums, and other user-created content. As a site based on social interaction, Greenopolis.com (Beta) puts all of these features to good use. The result is a very rich user experience that is both educational and fun.
