I remember poking into Backdrop's code for the first time back in October 2014, when we tried to set it up on Drupion (the older incarnation of our company). According to a popular Russian proverb, "the first pancake is always wonky," so we ran into our first Backdrop problem right then. However, with the valuable input from the Backdrop community members we quickly made necessary changes and got it up and running.
Backdrop CMS turned 6 years on January 15, 2021 and on the same day the Backdrop community has proudly released version 1.18.0. Congratulations to all users and developers of Backdrop CMS - the open source CMS that helps you build websites for businesses and non-profits in the best traditions of Drupal 7!

Eighteen years ago today, I released Drupal 1.0.0. What started from humble beginnings has grown into one of the largest Open Source communities in the world. Today, Drupal exists because of its people and the collective effort of thousands of community members. Thank you to everyone who has been and continues to contribute to Drupal.
I am delighted to announce today that a hosting provider previously known as Drupion changes its jurisdiction from San Jose, California to Seattle, Washington and re-launches as AltaGrade LLC, a web-hosting company for everybody created by nerds who know the best of and love to support Drupal, Backdrop, WordPress, Joomla and thousands of other most popular web applications running on Linux.
