1.  So Erin, what's your role at Mediacurrent, both internally and client-related?

My title is Business Development.  This includes working with prospective clients to see if Mediacurrent can solve their Drupal and Digital Strategy needs.  I also work with our Partners and Alliances to better serve our clients and provide a complete solution.  Internally, I work a lot with our Marketing and Project Management teams.  As someone goes from visiting our website to a Discovery engagement to a site maintenance plan, I try to keep everything moving in the right direction.

I recently had the opportunity to be a featured speaker at Drupalcamp Florida. In my session, we went over the new features of Drupal 8 and what you can expect to see in the forthcoming version. From CMI, views in core, web services, mobile and HTML5 we talked about the new features and showed a live demo of some of the new features. In addition the session covered how to help finalize Drupal 8 and get involved yourself.

On larger projects it is likely that you be working with at least one other person on front-end tasks. This can be a great learning experience and be helpful to your developers too.
There are several aspects that can make a collaborative project a success. I have broken them down into development tools, techniques, and review processes.

1.  So Jonathan, what's your role at Mediacurrent, both internally and client-related?

As a senior developer at Mediacurrent, I do anything that is necessary to make sure that the vision of the client is executed and delivered on time and in budget.  I fill gaps wherever necessary, from architecture to module updates.  Internally, I work with the devops team to charter a new evolution of local development through the use of great tools such as Vagrant, provisioning software, and virtual machines to create an easily managed and unified local development platform.
