About the presentation
How and why Drupal powers over 850 websites at McGill
McGill University's Drupal-based Web Management System may be the largest university-based implementation of Drupal in North America, indeed, the world. It includes over 850 websites housed on a single platform, sharing a common code base and set of themes.
This platform, managed by a team of 10 people, is used by over 1,700 active site managers to power 10 million page views per month on the website ranked # 115 in all of Canada by Alexa.
Our DrupalCamp Montreal 2018 presentation covered the WMS project's goals, scope, history, architecture, staffing, user base, planning, training, documentation, and challenges, and was co-presented by Web Service Group team members, Matt Corks, a back-end developer, and Joyce Peralta, a web analyst.
