Delivering provincial government websites quickly with Drupal

Western Cape Government (WCG) selected Drupal as its standard web content management system several years ago  but that was just the start of the journey towards providing an effective CMS for internal clients. Johan Du Bois and Luqmaan Essa, from e-Government for Citizens, will tell us about some of the challenges they've faced, the approached they’ve adopted, how implementation is going.


Johan du Bois leads web development at e-Government for Citizens (eG4C), a unit of the Western Cape Government, which manages the provincial government’s online channels, contact centre, and provides e-skills training and Internet access at 51 Cape Access centres across the province. He has 10 years of experience using Drupal in academia, online marketing, and government. His team is a centre-of-excellence for Drupal hosting and development practices in government in South Africa. Johan is a board member of Drupal Association South Africa.
