Drupal is a opensource content management system with over a million users. I have and contributed to many initiatives and leading up the UX-Team.


Drupal is a highly flexible tool, empowering site builders to build and quickly iterate websites. However this flexibility creates a lot usability problems.
  1. Design often happens after development.
  2. Technology focused, UX not seen as adoption blocker.
  3. Lack of continuous user voice in the process.


To enable more users to leverage the power and flexibility of Drupal by improving the user experience of core site building concepts.
  1. Establishing standardised process for solving UX challenges.
  2. Building community wide understanding of UX.
  3. Continuous evaluation of new developments.
