Oliver Davies Highlights Drupal's Evolution from "Not Invented Here" Syndrome

Effective Drupal Release Planning for Enterprises

A recent blog post by Oliver Davies highlights Drupal's historical struggle with "not invented here" syndrome, where most code was developed internally by Drupal developers, excluding jQuery. Before Drupal 8's release in 2015, the PHP codebase was largely procedural and inconsistent with modern PHP practices. The platform depended on its own tools and infrastructure for updates and code management. Since Drupal 8, there has been a significant shift towards incorporating more third-party code, modernizing Drupal's development approach.
