    relatively easy to put together a website

    Drupal is a popular instance of a Content Management System (CMS). Taking the idea of Cascading Style Sheets to a much more indepth instantiation. The book starts from scratch, assuming no prior experience by the reader with Drupal. The default installation comes with a set of templates, called themes within the Drupal context. Each theme includes both a look and feel and an accompanying functionality. Arguably, it is the combination of these that sets Drupal apart from a simple, first generation collection of look and feel templates. An example of functionality is being able to have a blog or forums on your website. Nowadays seemingly ubiquitous on so many personal websites, and corporate ones at that. Another example is the aggregation of third party RSS feeds and the display of these. A point of Drupal is that nowadays, there is little value added in recoding functionalities like these from scratch. Drupal gives you commonalities that are now commodity features. But equally germane to some readers is how Drupal manages to largely separate the UI designer aspects from the programming. So that different people, with different but complementary skill sets can jointly put together a website.
