Contrib Committee status review for April 2016

by Damien McKenna
May 19, 2016

With DrupalCon coming up our busy beavers were .. beavering away on their preparations. There were some other contributions going, so let’s see what happened.


We had a couple of improvements to our toolbox of choice.


Along with the client sponsored development, some of us had some internal time to work on other tasks.


Obviously a lot of work went towards planning for DrupalCon, between people helping to organize it and others putting the finishing touches on their presentations. I do hope everyone had a great time in New Orleans!

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.
