Attending the Backdrop Live virtual conference today and tomorrow

Backdrop is a fork of Drupal 7 with a number of the features built-in to D8 and 9, put retaining D7's framework. This gives an option for sites running a Drupal 7 that don't have the budget what time do the large migration to Drupal 9. Generally speaking modules and themes port over quickly and the data model is pretty much the same. Functionality such as configuration management layouts, and mobile first HTML elements are available straight out of the box. Oh no I'm not a huge fan of forks in general, this is a strong option for folks who are concerned about the end-of-life of Drupal seven but aren't in.a  position to move to Drupal 9.
