75: Meet Erica Ligeski: Drupal training means jobs

Erica Ligeski, Marketing Engineer on the Acquia.com website is another of the many Drupalists with a non-technical background. Her path took her from performance and dance, to arts management, to total geekery! Just like me, at some point along the way she needed a website for an arts project and fell in love with Drupal. The rest is history.

Acquia U

Erica was one of the very successful first group put through the Acquia U Drupal training program. "Successful" in this case means that all the trainees were hired as full-time Acquians following the course.

Erica's favorite Drupal module is the Konami Code Module, which adds secret Easter eggs to Drupal websites, just like the one the Konami company added to many of its video game releases.
