O’Reilly Media wants to help make working with the Drupal web content management system just a bit easier. Many people realize that when working with a CMS of any kind, even an open source option, things can get pretty hairy for those not overly savvy with code and module configuration. Using Drupal’s goal is to eliminate as much frustration and as many wrong turns as possible.
O’Reilly Media has been putting out media in regards to technology and the tech community since 1978. Chronicling new developments and staying up on tech trends has kept them at the forefront of the industry for years now. And a long history of advocating, meme-making and evangelism make them a go to resource for many.
