Drupal has forked! So now what?

In September of 2013 Drupal was forked and BackdropCMS was born. For some this was a huge shock. For others, it was laughable. Where is it today? How does the user experience within BackdropCMS differ from Drupal 7 or even Drupal 8?
Let's spend one hour and answer as many questions as possible, including a live, interactive demo of BackdropCMS!

Backdrop CMS is for the small to medium sized business, non-profits, educational institutions, and companies or organizations who are delivering comprehensive websites on a budget. This introductory training will cover the basics of creating and administering a website with Backdrop CMS. We will focus on some of the differences between Drupal and BackdropCMS
