White House opens website programming to public - 5 views

  • The online-savvy administration on Saturday switched to open-source code for http://www.whitehouse.gov - meaning the programming language is written in public view, available for public use and able for people to edit.
  •  
    The whitehouse.gov will look the same to most people except that what is behind it is part of the open source movement with the whitehouse code - now powered by Drupal -- is open source. For educators, if you've found administrators objecting to the open source movement, maybe you should consider using the white house as an example.
  •  
    Our district switched to using Drupal for our site last spring. So glad 'others' are following our lead! :-)
