Nominate someone for the Community Spotlight

Inspired by others in the Drupal community? Nominate and interview the people improving Drupal for the Community Spotlight.

A Community Spotlight can be focused on an individual, a team (e.g. a Drupalcon team or the D7UX team), or any project that extends Drupal (e.g. a module, theme, installation profile etc).

To nominate:

1. Create a complete Community Spotlight in a new forum topic
2. Include
* Full Names for each contributor
* d.o./IRC nicks for each contributor
* At least one image: photo, screenshot, illustration (exact instructions coming soon)

3. Feel free to get creative, while remaining relevant to the Drupal community, but here are some suggestions:
Example questions for individuals:
* How did you get involved with Drupal?
* Do you have any advice to anyone just starting with Drupal?
* Can you explain some of the benefits of getting involved with the community and what you get out of it?

Example questions for teams:
* What are/were your primary challenges?
* What advice would you give if you could do it over again?
* Show us the best examples of your work

4. Be sure to link to some examples of their work, include testimonials, project's usage stats etc.

Kevin Thull, from behind the camera

Chances are if you've attended any of the Drupal camps in North America you've run into Kevin Thull. He's the fellow that is dashing from room to room before the first session begins to set up the AV equipment and checking in with presenters making sure they all "push the red button".

He is personally responsible for recording over 800 sessions and donating countless hours of his time.

Remembering J-P Stacey

In 2017 we saw the passing of J-P, community friend, mentor, leader, and contributor.

This is a moving tribute and a celebration of his life.

Community Spotlight: Rwandan enthusiasm for Drupal causes big challenge

For Ildephonse Bikino of Rwanda, it was supposed to be an uneventful Drupal Global Training Day call-out; he expected 50 people but he got 388! How do you deal with the logistics of training 388 people? That’s hard! Bikino was committed to the challenge. One session became eight over a number of weekends, and Bikino made sure everyone got the opportunity to attend!
