What is Drupal?

Drupal is used to build web sites. It’s a highly modular, open source web content management
framework with an emphasis on collaboration. It is extensible, standards-compliant, and strives for
clean code and a small footprint. Drupal ships with basic core functionality, and additional functionality is gained by enabling built-in or third-party modules. Drupal is designed to be customized, but customization is done by overriding the core or by adding modules, not by modifying the code in the core. Drupal’s design also successfully separates content management from content presentation.

Drupal can be used to build an Internet portal; a personal, departmental, or corporate web site; an
e-commerce site; a resource directory; an online newspaper; a social networking site; an image gallery; an intranet; and virtually any other type of web site that you can imagine creating.

A dedicated security team strives to keep Drupal secure by responding to threats and issuing
security updates. A nonprofit organization called the Drupal Association supports Drupal by improving the drupal.org web site infrastructure and organizing Drupal conferences and events. And a thriving online community of users, site administrators, designers, and web developers works hard to continually improve the software; see http://drupal.org and http://groups.drupal.org.

Drupal is a free software package that allows you to easily organize, manage and publish your content, with an endless variety of customization.

Drupal is Open Source : Drupal is open source software maintained and developed by a community of 630,000+ users and developers. It's distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (or "GPL"), which means anyone is free to download it and share it with others. This open development model means that people are constantly working to make sure Drupal is a cutting-edge platform that supports the latest technologies that the Web has to offer. The Drupal project's principles encourage modularity, standards, collaboration, ease-of-use, and more.
