Ezra Barnett Gildesgame
Ezra has been an active Drupalist since 2006, consulting for top-tier tech and publishing industry clients, presenting at DrupalCons and camps and maintaining a range of contributed modules such as Nodequeue.
At Growing Venture Solutions, he focused on the Conference Organizing Distribution for Drupal (COD), making conference and event websites a focus area for the company and leading development of the platform used to power all DrupalCon websites since Chicago 2011, most DrupalCamps and many non-Drupal conferences around the world.
Ezra got hooked on the Drupal Community starting in 2007 when he presented at DrupalCon Sunnyvale, and is a (dis)organizer for the New York City Drupal user group. Some of his favorite presentations include an Introduction to Module Development, a background on COD and one on Drupal and Scrum at the Economist. He co-authored a series of e-books about Drupal.
Ezra's broader background includes a range of technical roles and tinkering with Internet technologies such as Apache and PHP-based content management systems.
Outside of Drupal, Ezra is a recreational photographer, guitarist and dedicated music enthusiast who would love to talk to you about your experience of American roots and various "World music" traditions.
