I've been working with Drupal a lot in my spare time. Since my experience with PHP and CMS's is limited at best, starting out with Drupal was somewhat slow going because most of the documentation/tutorials provide contrived examples that require the reader to do some non-trivial extrapolation. After spending a few weeks getting familiar with Drupal's architecture and a few more researching best practices, it is easy to see why there is a large, active community supporting novice and experienced Drupal developers alike.

The Drupal community is constantly providing and supporting modules that further reduce development time and make the process of developing a complex web application more efficient and enjoyable. Support for a large number of themes make it easy to create a professional looking site without requiring extensive knowledge of CSS or graphic design.

If you're looking to put pull off a large web application and don't want to worry about the mundane infrastructure, give Drupal a shot!
