Drupal Founder Dries Buytaert (Finally) Enters Start-Up Life With Acquia

Filed under
Drupal

Last weekend at Barcamp Brussels, I had a chance to talk to Dries Buytaert (also, see this video interview) about his recent announcement that he’s going to start a company called Acquia now that he’s in the final stage of completing his PhD from the University of Ghent.

Dries, in case you don’t know, is the guy that created Drupal a few years ago and has remained project lead for the development community ever since. He also founded and presides the Drupal Association that was set up exactly one year ago. He’s now entering start-up life with Acquia, and evidently Drupal is the center piece of the venture.

After thinking about the future of Drupal and the web in general, Dries concluded that the open-source project is on the right path, that everything should have an API, and that a well-capitalized company is needed to make projects like JBoss, Linux and MySQL palatable to users who might not have otherwise tried the software.
