What is drupal for?

My friend told me to learn how to use Drupal. What I don't understand is what is drupal and programming have to do together?

WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System), Drupal is also a CMS. They are used to maintain, run & update the website without going into the source code. Creating a new page is done through the click of a button rather than creating a file, naming it, adding content, uploading and then revisiting to update it. Too much work to be done when you picture a website that has 1000 pages.

I've only used WordPress so I can't tell you much about the experience with Drupal.
