Acquia is committed to giving back to Drupal through code and design contributions, sponsoring events around the globe, and sharing our knowledge and enthusiasm.

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.

Most significant D8 contribution

Peter Wolanin

Peter Wolanin, Principal Cloud Security Engineer, had a previous life as a Senior Scientist before making the leap into working with Drupal, and eventually at Acquia.

Tim Plunkett

Straight out of Philly, Tim Plunkett has been building sites with Drupal for 7+ years. As an active member of the Drupal community, Tim is a core subsystem co-maintainer for Drupal’s Ajax system, configuration entity system, form system, and many more. In the spring of 2014, Tim joined Acquia as a senior engineer to help bring Drupal 8 to life and today has over 1200 commits.

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.

Personalization

This module provides a suite of extendable plug-ins and APIs for personalizing Drupal content. Two guiding principles of this module are that it should be just as easy to personalize content for anonymous users as it is for authenticated users, and that personalization should continue to work even when pages are fully cached (including in varnish and CDNs).

Linked Content: At the time of DrupalCon LA, we will most likely have some number of critical Drupal 8 issues remaining. This talk will provide a run-down of what remains, providing some necessary background/context, akin to the blog post at Webchick's "plain Drupal English" Guide to the Remaining Drupal 8 Critical Issues: DrupalCon Bogotá Edition. The hope is that this will help people coming to the DrupalCon Sprints hit the ground running to help push us closer to release!

Speakers:

Linked content: Come and join us for a wild ride into the depths of Render Caching and how it
enables Drupal to be faster than ever.
We will show you:

  • The biggest Do's and Don'ts when creating render-cache enabled modules and sites
  • Frontend performance pitfalls and why front-end performance is tied to backend performance more than you thought
  • Why libraries are so great and why single CSS/JS files make trouble.
  • Common scenarios and how to solve them (mobile sites variation, cookie variation, etc.)
  • Drupal using an intelligent BigPipe approach
Speakers:

Hello! I'm a long time Drupalist and community member. I now run Acquia's India operations.

This panel is meant for developers, architects, managers and executives working with global teams or planning to.

Drupal has gone global in a huge way. Whatever your opinion on offshore / outsource / near-shore, etc it is a reality that is here and growing. A few examples:
600+ participants at DrupalCamps Delhi and Mumbai, 75+ code sprint participants
IT giants like Wipro, Sapient, TCS, CapGemini, Cognizant, Accenture and Mindtree all have significant Drupal teams (50+).
Companies like Intel, Time Inc and Verizon have their own Indian Drupal delivery teams
And of course... DrupalCon Asia is in India next year.
An amazing panel!
We've got an awesome panel of leaders from enterprises using Drupal in transformative ways to discuss their experiences building global teams and predictions for the future.
Erynn Peterson (Time Inc) - SVP Audience Products and Editorial Tools
Mike Lamb (Pfizer) - Director, Marketing Technology Strategy at Pfizer
David Insley (J&J) - Web Platform Manager at Johnson & Johnson
Topics and takeaways:
Overcoming (or taking advantage) of cultural differences
Developing and hiring talent around the world
What governance models are most effective? How do they contribute to success?
Communication tactics and tools which allow for personal sanity and productivity

Do you have questions about the upcoming Drupal 8 release (or Drupal 8.1.x or 9 and beyond)? On Thursday, May 14 at DrupalCon Los Angeles, I'll be moderating a question-and-answer core conversation with a panel of the Drupal 8 core committers. Questions can be submitted in advance online, and anyone can submit a question (or more than one). I will curate the submissions to ask the panel the most interesting and relevant questions.

Some suggested topics:

Drupal core's newly refined structure and decision-making process (see Dries' earlier post for background information).
Contributing as a core subsystem or topic maintainer
The upcoming Drupal 8.0.0 release: what to expect and how we're going to get there
Any questions you have for core committers
Or anything else on your mind!
This is a rare opportunity for the community to communicate directly with the Drupal 8 committer team. Help us make the most of of it -- submit your questions now!

Speakers:

Lots of people want to help with an open source project. People have heard that sprints can help with that. But what makes a sprint effectively accomplish moving a project forward?

We will discuss this in general, using getting Drupal 8 released as an example

Background: Drupal 8 release plans
Examples of successful sprints: Ghent, New Jersey

Speakers:

Thinking about, or currently using Zendesk in your Drupalsphere? Join like-minded folks, see what inspires, and participate in dialogue around deploying an integrated customer service request system.

Speakers:

With all the excitement about REST in D8, its easy to overlook the great options we have available in D7. Considering that D7 will be the default option for most sites for at least a year, and will continue to be used and supported for several years beyond, we shouldn't ignore the great tools available.

We have a great selection of modules that enable building out RESTful APIs in D7 (Services, RESTWS, Restful, MEAN), and a few other strategies for achieving those ends (Views, hook_menu, JS module). This BoF will build on the session I did at BADCamp (RESTful Garage - Build your own API speedster) to give us a foundation for discussing how and when to use different modules for D7 RESTful APIs.

Jeff Geerling
Speakers:

We had a great discussion about how different companies and individuals are using Ansible for Drupal infrastructure management and deployments at DrupalCon LA, and I wanted to post some slides from my (short) intro to Ansible presentation here, as well as a few notes from the presentation.

Speakers:

Are you using Acquia Dev Desktop? Or would you like too?

Lets get together and talk about the best practices for Using Acquia Dev Desktop for your Drupal Development.

David Hwang
Speakers:

Are you working with, investigating, attempting to work with, or otherwise interested in decoupling Drupal's front end from its back? Are you working with Javascript MV* frameworks to augment, support or replace Drupal's presentation layer? Do you have a war story, best practice or question to share? Then come join us for an open-forum discussion about all things Headless/Decoupled.
