Heather James

Manager of Learning Services
Acquia, Inc.

I've worked with Acquia for several years, creating learning content. I earned my Masters of Science focusing on learning and technology to support learning. I work with partners as well as the Learning Services team in delivering the training program across the globe.

When Dries asked at DrupalCon San Francisco: "Has Drupal changed your life?" I was one of the people who stood up. It's an amazing experience, and feel I'm participating in a larger cultural shift which shows the benefits of collaboration and working together. This gives me hope that the world is getting better.

No naming and shaming here, but you know you've seen it. You're browsing around and see something very "drupally" about a site. Suspiciously, you view source or look at builtwith.com just to double check. What was it that you noticed? Was it some Plus...
