Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

Emma Jane helps Drupal teams succeed. Her first book, Front End Drupal, was recognized in the industry as the most important book for Drupal designers when it was first released in 2009. She has been teaching internet technologies since 2002 and has been building Web sites for over fifteen years. Her latest book, Git for Teams, guides teams through the process of creating collaborative, productive workflows with Git.

Emma is a highly sought-after speaker and trainer around the world, and she also likes single malt whisky. These two things are probably not related. In addition to her engaging conference presentations, Emma has also worked as a technical college instructor at Humber College and Seneca College, and has worked on curriculum development for Humber College and the Ubuntu Linux distribution.

Emma encourages non-traditional participation in technology through craft and believes that everyone is capable of mastering the tools that surround them. To help engage new ways of participating in technology, she open sourced one of her knitting patterns so that you can make your very own Drupal Socks.
