One of the reasons why I’ve chosen to run for a position on the Drupal Association Board of Directors is because I’ve noticed that small-to-medium-sized agencies would like to contribute more to Drupal’s strategic direction.
As you probably know, voting is currently open for the Drupal Association’s Board of Directors. The Board of Directors plays an important role in developing the Association’s strategic direction, and voting for the Board of Directors is an opportunity for members of the Drupal community to participate in shaping the Association’s future.
The best part of my job is teaching Drupal. As a Drupal trainer, I get to meet a lot of Drupalers with really different backgrounds. Some are brand-new to Drupal, some have lots of experience. Listening to them tell of their Drupal journeys, both the highlights and the low points, has given me insights into the different ways people encounter Drupal and some of the most common reasons why they love it, use it and get involved in the community (or not).
Drupal Global Training Days are a recent initiative in the Drupal community, created this year by the Drupal Association to help spread Drupal adoption. The concept is to organize free or at-cost intro Drupal training on a given day, to grow the Drupal community. Drupal companies and local user groups are encouraged to organize a training session in their area as part of the event.
