What are PHP and Drupal?

In case you arrived at this site randomly, or by following an out-of-date link, you might be wondering "what the hell are PHP, Drupal, and the Web, and where's the Moxie.ca site about/for Canadian women?"

Well for that last part, the old moxie.ca site has moved on (current address unknown), and I'm the new tenant at this web address.

Drupal is an open source content management system (CMS), which is just a fancy way of saying "software that runs a website". It's a very flexible platform, and being open source it can be easily customized by programmers. Drupal is written in the PHP programming language. PHP is a language that is well suited for developing websites, and it's very widely used across the web.
