Backdrop LIVE is based upon an unconference model. Anyone can declare a topic up through the day of the event and the schedule is subject to change at any time. What would you like to talk about?

We invited the founders of ClassicPress to join us in a roundtable discussion about the process of forking a major CMS. Ask us anything.

  • Let's talk about the motivation behind forking a major CMS.
  • How to build a community around a forked version of a major CMS?
  • What are the biggest challenges and the greatest rewards?
  • How have you dealt with governance issues?
  • What kind of infrastructure and procedures are necessary?

Bring your questions...
