We kick off the Drupal Voices series with a brief interview that I conducted with Jeff Eaton on the CMS Showdown panel at SXSW where Drupal went head-to-head against Joomla! and Wordpress in an Iron Chef-style competition.
The SXSW panel happened last Monday, and it looks like Drupal edged out Joomla! and Wordpress from the client’s perspective, and all accounts from the audience vote looks like it was a 3-way tie.
This interview was conducted the week leading up to the panel discussion.

Dave Greenberg is a core developer of the CiviCRM project, which is a free and open source Constituent Relationship Management solution for Drupal & Joomla. He talks about some of the main features of CiviCRM such as:
Online fundraising and donor management Case management for clients and constituents Online event registration and participant tracking Online signup and membership management Personalized email blasts and newsletters Report generation and template management
Greenberg also talks about CiviCRM’s integration with Drupal and how it can expose events, contributions and membership to the Drupal front-end as well as how it’s possible to pass the user’s activity on the Drupal website back into the CiviCRM database. He also talks about some of the most common use cases and types of organizations are using CiviCRM, as well as how he first got involved with the project.
