Making Drupal Products: Meet Ezra Gildesgame

Ezra Barnett Gildesgame is the Technical Lead of Acquia's Distribution Team. He is in charge of maintaining and developing Acquia's two distributions, COD (Conference Organizing Distribution) and Commons, the social business and collaboration distro. (Download them here: https://www.acquia.com/downloads.) His work goes into maintaining and improving these two Drupal products. The direct improvements made to the code go back to the repositories on Drupal.org, of course, but Ezra's work also helps the Drupal product landscape by helping other people working on other distributions.

Drupal Commons 2.5 released: U/X improvements along with Question & Answers

The Commons team has released Commons 2.5 today. This is a significant release for a number of reasons, including some significant U/X improvements. We also added Question & Answer functionality which is very important for both internal and external communities. There was a significant U/X focus on this release with usability testing being very helpful. This was very informative and initiated a change in login/landing on the Activity Stream to a site landing page. This was validated in the usability testing, discussions with users and a survey of successful community sites.
