I’ve been digging back into Drupal work this year via consulting work for Michael Skok at North Bridge Venture Partners. One of the projects is The Future of Open Source forum that leads up to the Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco each year. Built with Drupal Gardens, the forum is the companion website to a survey about the future of open source and includes “Blog the Future” where industry leaders share thoughts about where open source is headed in 2011 and beyond. My last Drupal project was as a project manager consultant at Pearson Education in 2009 working on the redesign of and its move to Drupal. I’m excited to be working in the world of Drupal again! My interest in Drupal began back in 2007 when I worked at BostonNOW newspaper managing the web department and the redesign and transition to Drupal. In 2008 I was the event planner for DrupalCon Boston.

The Drupal community celebrated the release of Drupal 7 with release parties around the world on Friday, January 7th at 7pm. I attended the party hosted by the local Boston Drupal User Group at Revolution Rock Bar in downtown Boston and helped with event photography. Dries Buytaert, creator of Drupal and co-founder of local Boston tech company Acquia attended the festivities as well as state senator Sonia Chang-Diaz (whose website is built with Drupal). You’ll see some “Drupal blue” hair in the photos, too.
