Documentation guides

Drupal Contributions: 

I am a maintainer or co-maintainer of several contributed projects on Drupal.org, and am especially proud to be co-leading the effort to make a Drupal 8 User Guide, which is coming along nicely. I am also the author of Programmer's Guide to Drupal, published by O'Reilly Media.

I've been involved in the Drupal project for quite a few years. During those years, I have at times been a Drupal Core maintainer/committer for documentation and coding standards patches, a contributor to the core Drupal source code and documentation, a writer of on-line Drupal.org documentation, a member of the Documentation Working Group, a mentor of new contributors, and a leader/co-leader of the Drupal documentation team.

Areas of Expertise: 
Site builder
custom module developer
Contrib module maintainer
Book author
Drupal Events: 
DrupalCon DC 2009
DrupalCon San Francisco 2010
DrupalCon Chicago 2011
DrupalCon London 2011
