On digital experiences, Open Source, startups & the future
While in France for the Drupal.org redesign code sprint in Paris, it was pointed out by a number of people that Slate.fr, the French version of the popular culture magazine Slate, is using Drupal. Slate is owned by the The Washington Post Company.
I believe "The Root" also runs on Drupal.
Also, Magnum Photos builds the Today's Pictures section of Slate.com using a custom Drupal back end. jQuery sortables allow re-ordering of the photos and edit-in-place allows caption editing. Then static HTML is produced via XSL transformations (Saxon) and uploaded to Slate.com. All powered by Drupal!
Hello, I'm the CTO for slate.fr.
First of all, many thanks, mr Buytaert, for this wonderful tool named Drupal.
And yes, we're using Drupal, and we are really glad to have made this choice. As far as I know, "the root" is using it too.
I work with a guy named Arnaud, an expert in Drupal technology, I have to say that if, technically, is online today, it's thanks to him, and another good buddy named Guillaume.
It's too early to tell more about the project, as we're working hard to achieve the launching.
More to come ... See ya !!!
"The Big Money" is also a Slate property and runs on Drupal. In fact, it was the first Slate property to run Drupal.
