Discussion on: Why I'm leaving Drupal for Laravel

So true! Don't forget the giant and vague dblog if something does go wrong. 300 errors that the cron is trying to run while it's already running. Can you be more specific Drupal? Ha! As much as I feel your pain, I'm glad someone can relate. The salary difference between taking a step back, learning a new framework and continuing with Drupal significant, but I just feel like it will be better in the long run. Curious, what do you think about the community?

The community is so big it's difficult to say anything general about it - I like #drupal-support on IRC, but the contrib module community often seems to think their modules are a lot better than they actually are, and that their way of doing things is the right way... like every big project I guess.

I completely agree with that. I also think a lot of times they try to accomplish too much functionality at once rather than break it out into parts. I always look for the light weight contrib modules. Bigger module, bigger problems.
