I’m a fan of the Big Web Show and while catching up on some recent episodes, this one with Jen Simmons stood out. What resonated with me was the broader conversation about tools for web publishing and how a tool like Expression Engine or Drupal can empower a small team to do a lot in a short time.
I never developed a taste for Drupal, but we’ve used Expression Engine a great deal at Odopod. Recently we have started using Django for the projects that we used to use EE for. Django gives much of the same efficiencies that EE provides as well as significantly increased flexibility to go build more unique experiences. More on that on the Odopod blog soon.
In the mean time, have a listen to the discussion, I think you will enjoy it.
