Bio: 

Larry Garfield has been building web sites since he was a sophomore in high school, which is longer ago than he'd like to admit. He spent time as a freelance web developer and journalist before settling in as a Drupal developer for the past decade. After 10 years with Palantir.net he recently moved to Platform.sh.

At Platform.sh, Larry is Director of Runtimes, Integrations, and Services. His goal: Make running major OSS projects on Platform's infrastructure stupid-easy.

Larry is an active Drupal core contributor, including the principle architect of the Drupal 7 database system and the Drupal 8 Web Services Lead. He is also the Drupal representative to the PHP Framework Interoperability Group. Larry holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from DePaul University.

Larry is a co-author of "Drupal 7 Module Development" from Packt Publishing, and has also been published in Drupal Watchdog and php[architect]. He blogs occasionally at http://www.garfieldtech.com/.
