Let's discuss marketing strategies for Backdrop CMS! While a Backdrop upgrade from Drupal 7 represents a potentially dramatic cost savings for countless organizations, pitching the idea successfully can be tricky.

This discussion will be facilitated by Eric Toupin, Senior Developer at Aten Design Group who recently led a Backdrop CMS upgrade project for Stanford University, and Joe Crespo, Director of Accounts at Aten Design Group actively pitching Backdrop CMS to new clients.
