About Large Scale Drupal

Large Scale Drupal (LSD) is strategic alliance for organizations where Drupal is an important part of their digital strategy - LSD Members meet regularly to discuss and collaborate on common problems - we provide a forum for enterprise users, listen to their needs, prioritize them as a group, and then figure out a proper way to address those needs through knowledge sharing, white papers, training and collaborative development projects. LSD enables our Member organizations to engage with and participate in the Drupal community giving them input into and insight on the future of the platform, helps them forge relationships with key community leaders and developers as well as their peers at other leading organizations running Drupal. For more information about the LSD Program, see the blog post by Dries announcing the Program, or our Drupal WatchDog Magazine article.
