Hundreds of thousands of people and organizations are using Drupal to power an endless variety of sites. Some of the more dynamic websites powered by Drupal can be found here

Drupal 7 has been under development for two and a half years of development by over hundreds of contributors. It is finally ready and the community is ready proudly present Drupal 7: the best version of Drupal yet. With a refined and more intuitive user interface and hundreds of enhancements under the hood, Drupal has never been more powerful.

The release party is an opportunity for Kenyan Drupalists to meet face to face, swap tips, and get inspiration for their next Drupal projects, making friends along the way. Hopefully, they will initiate a local Drupal user group that can be meeting regularly to learn together and build the profile of Drupal among web technology users in Nairobi.
