Drupal Core Contributors

Meet some of Acquia's 98 Drupal 8 core contributors.

Adam Hoenich

Adam (aka phenaproxima) has been building Drupal sites, writing themes, and making custom modules since 2007, but he really ramped up his involvement with the Drupal community in 2013 when he inherited the Corresponding Entity References module, and in 2014 when he wrote the Drupal Module Upgrader for Acquia. Since then he has worked on the core migration path from Drupal 6 and 7 to Drupal 8.

Alex Bronstein

Located in Eugene, Oregon, Alex Bronstein (effulgentsia) has been instrumental to the Drupal 8 release through his work as a Framework Manager for Drupal 8 Core. Prior to Acquia, Alex has been programming custom Drupal modules since 2005 and contributing to the Drupal community since 2008.

Amit Goyal

Amit Goyal, from Delhi, India, has been a Drupalist since 2005; he started with Drupal 4.x! An active contributor to the Drupal community, Amit has worked on many projects involving issues like migration, multisite, and multilingual. He has also contributed to many contributed modules, and to Drupal core (7.x, 8.x).

Gábor Hojtsy

Gabor Hojtsy, Drupal developer and employee #1 at Acquia, is the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative lead. A Drupalist since 2003, Gabor has assembled and sustained a large (1300 contributors!) global team that has made multilingual one of the most anticipated features in Drupal 8.

Jess (xjm)

Jess (xjm on Drupal.org) is a developer, reviewer, mentor, language nerd, and naturalist. She somewhat unintentionally developed her own home-grown content management system in 2003, and discovered a few years later that Drupal could save her a whole lot of work. 

Kevin Oleary

Kevin O’Leary has been a Drupalist since 2008. As Director of Design at Acquia, Kevin remains focused on creating a lean and agile customer experience through choice architecture and cross-disciplinary team building. His main goal? Delivering products that work.

Wim Leers

I stumbled into Drupal while working on another open source project, and I was looking for the best software to build and maintain websites. After evaluating many options, I ended up choosing Drupal. Drupal did most of the things I needed it to do, except a few.

Shield Pages
BigPipe Demo
Commit by Wim Leers

This module makes it easy to visualize the impact BigPipe can have for a site. Because it's just a module that provides two blocks, it's very easy/unobtrusive to install on your site, to see what the impact would be of using BigPipe for your site.

BigPipe Demo
Content Browser

This module provides a default Entity Browser that lets you browse and select your Content from a feature-rich View that displays rows in a grid using a new View Mode. This allows for content editors to visually select what Content they want to reference while maintaining a consistent style throughout the selection process.

Content Browser
URLs Queuer

This module queues URLs or paths to your Purge queue. Drupal 8 introduces tag-based cache invalidation which is much more efficient than legacy URL or path based invalidation and leads to less processing and smaller queues. However, when your CDN or external caching system does not support tag-based invalidation, this module is for you!

RefreshLess makes navigating your web site faster by only loading the parts that change between pages. Uses the ideas behind Turbolinks technique (pioneered by Rails). But it goes further: thanks to Drupal 8's architecture, we're able to automatically figure out which parts of a page change. So, we only need to send the parts of the page that actually change.

This module is a javascript-framework-agnostic, progressive decoupling tool to allow custom blocks to be written by front end developers in the javascript framework of their choice, without needing to know any Drupal API's.
