Contrib Half Hour

We had a slightly short month for the Contrib Half Hour because of end-of-year holidays:

It's a wrap

And that brings our 2018 contributions to a close. We're glad you chose to join us in our journey and look forward to continuing to share our journey in 2019.

Meet team member, Damien McKenna

In his role as Community Lead, Damien directs internal initiatives that strengthen Mediacurrent’s commitment to open-source principles, collaboration, and sharing knowledge to strengthen the Drupal community. Regularly ranked as one of the ten most active contributors on, Damien has been a significant member of the Drupal community since 2007. In addition to writing documentation, writing & reviewing patches and mentoring others, Damien maintains Metatag, Views, Date and several other SEO-focused modules.

Prior to Mediacurrent, Damien spent five years building content management systems and frameworks using multiple languages (PHP, ColdFusion, Ruby), before he was first introduced to Drupal in 2007. A year later, he delved deeper into Drupal 5's architecture while migrating two popular skiing sites off a proprietary system. While becoming increasingly involved in his local Drupal community, Damien led the development of several successful content-rich platforms including a US radio station network spanning ten individual sites. Damien joined Mediacurrent in 2012 as a Lead Drupal Architect and has been involved with planning the architecture of new sites, project estimates, lots of hands-on development work, and guiding the company towards Contrib First processes.

When not working with Drupal, Damien enjoys exploring and kayaking with his family throughout NH and the wider New England region.
