Ron Northcutt

Director of Developer Advocacy at Acquia

Ron is currently the Director of Developer Advocacy at Acquia, where he started as a Solutions Architect in 2014. In that time, he has helped contribute to tens of millions of dollars in revenue and numerous success stories inside and outside of the company. Interacting with so many large scale projects has given him unique insight into application design.

Ron is a professional problem solver with a long history of diverse experiences. From ranch management to real estate brokerage to solutions architecture, his 25 years of experience in web technology has allowed him to see multiple cycles in the industry, as well as the underlying patterns that form successful projects… and the ones that form dismal failures.

He is an avid supporter of open source software, and frequent contributor to several projects, especially Drupal. When not at work or online, Ron attempts to play guitar and rock climb. His children do a good job at keeping him humble on all accounts.
