Drupal Competes As a Framework, Unofficially

tgeller writes “Drupal developer Ben Buckman attended the BostonPHP Framework Bake-Off with the hopes of pitting the CMS against CakePHP, Symfony, Zend, and CodeIgniter. He was told that he couldn’t because Drupal is ‘not a framework,’ a response he felt was ‘coder-purist snobbery (“it’s not a framework if you build any of it in a UI”).’ So he decided to unofficially compete in the back of the room by accepting the challenge of building a job-posting app in 30 minutes, while the official competitors did the same from the stage. He recorded the results, which are impressive. In the process he raised the question: What is a framework, anyway?”
