I am very excited to be traveling to Ireland this year for Drupalcon Dublin potentially to give my talk “Drupal and the College Classroom”. Drupal is a widely popular, scalable, and competent (if used properly), — not to mention secure — open source content management system for building great web applications of all kinds. I’ve been working with industry and organizations over the past few years creating specifically with Drupal. Recently I took the Acquia Certified Developers test and I am now a Acquia Certified Drupal Developer. The opportunities with open source web content management systems are endless.

I am working with North Studio in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada to rebuild the Boone and Crockett Club‘s historic wildlife trophy database as a modern, scaleable, and highly accessible web application. The team at North Studio is collaborating with B&C’s internal team based at their national headquarters in Missoula, Montana. It is a complex project with many moving parts including data migration of legacy trophy and hunter data, a contemporary Drupal build, and Solr search integration. My role is technical project manager and Drupal developer.
“The Boone and Crockett Club is a hunter-conservationist organization founded in the United States in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt. In addition to authoring a famous “fair chase” statement of hunter ethics, the club worked for the expansion and protection of Yellowstone National Park and the establishment of American Conservation in general.” 2
