I have a 5 months (approx) casual employment opportunity to offer - Canadian Federal Government, in Ottawa, CS-02 level. If you are a good and motivated Drupal programmer / developer, or know someone like this; please check my post on drupal.org. A gifted member of my team, François Dupras, is moving on to an acting opportunity elsewhere in the Office of the JAG and I need to replace him (even if you are irreplaceable François) ;-)
This is an exciting opportunity: you can be part of one of the first Canadian Federal Government efforts in using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) to address a range of information management requirements in a governmental context, in accordance with the applicable federal government guidelines on the use of FOSS. I would expect gosling members to be interested in this opportunity, for example.
Drupal has been featured as the cover story of php architect (vol 4 issue 12 - that would be december 2005 I think). In his article, Titus Barik characterizes Drupal as follows:
Drupal provides a flexible, extensible framework - an alternative to roll-your-own content management solutions. It can be refit for a variety of different content systems, including community portal sites, personal weblogs, and resource directories, simply by adding and removing sophisticated modules.Drupal has also been positively commented upon, several times, in the book "Open Source for the Enterprise : Managing Risks, Reaping Rewards" by Dan Woods and Gautam Guliani. I have been impressed by the long list of Drupal-powered web sites, of which I bookmarked a few examples.
Drupal offers you a working, tested framework for building components, and handles the insignificant but tedious details of module management, user management, and integration [...]
Unlike a dedicated content system such as WordPress for blogging, or osCommerce for e-commerce, Drupal aims to be flexible, to suit any type of web platform.
