At Kalamuna, we believe that everyone should have easy access to the powerful technologies that deliver websites to audiences, so that professionals and hobbyists alike can participate in building the internet of tomorrow. A Typical Conversation HUMAN: I downloaded Drupal. How do I try this thing out…DEVELOPER: Is your computer running a web server?HUMAN: I don’t have a server, I have a laptop…DEVELOPER: Sigh. Nevermind.
In my last blog post, I talked a little bit about the history of Drupal and why it's so cool. Be sure to check it out if you need a bird's-eye view of the forest. In this entry, we're going to get closer to the trees and cover some of the basics of site building. Let's create stuff.
Kalamuna was proud to have been a Contrib sponsor of this year's Bay Area Drupal Camp (BADCamp), the largest free Drupal camp in the world. Hosted at UC Berkeley, BADCamp gives over a thousand attendees the opportunity to network with fellow Drupalistas and to learn more about the platform's past, present, and future.
Kalamuna doesn’t dabble in theology, so we tend not to participate in debates over CMS superiority.

If you have ever tried moving an existing installation of CiviCRM to another server you know that it is tantamount to some of the most weird and sadistic branches of masochism.
