With DrupalCon over, many of us were heavily focused on client work for the month. Thankfully, we have many great clients that are eager to help push the Drupal project forward.

DrupalCon was a major theme of our May blogging, we all had a great time and wanted to share some of our insights with you.

Until next month

Hope you all have an excellent summer, or winter if you’re reading this from the Southern Hemisphere.

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 drupal.org, 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.
