Description: 

The Drupal open-source software platform provides an opportunity for those who wish to design, develop, release, and finally maintain a non-commercial software project. A team of students will work with Duke’s Office of Information Technology and other partners across campus to develop a Drupal module to extend functionality of the existing framework to create an application. Students will work with Drupal 9 to extend Symfony’s PHP object model paradigm. This allows students to work within a fully compliant Object-Oriented Programming, or OOP, paradigm.

Watch the team's final presentation on YouTube.
