Angela Byron, senior director of product and community development, is a Drupal core committer, recipient of the Google-O'Reilly Open 2008 Source Award for Best Contributor, co-author of the O'Reilly book "Using Drupal," and an open source evangelist who lives and breathes Drupal.
She got her start in Drupal as a Google Summer of Code student in 2005 and since then has completely immersed herself in contributing to open source. Her work includes core patch review, improving the user experience of Drupal through the Spark project, strategic initiative coordination, testing and quality assurance efforts, improving and fixing documentation, and general community cat herding.
She lives near Vancouver, British Columbia, with her amazing daughter. She’s passionate about getting new people (especially women) involved in open source, as well as geeky computer stuff in general. When the keyboard is pried from her hands once or twice a year, she enjoys video games, logic puzzles, drawing silly cartoons, and finding unique things to do around town with her eclectic group of awesome friends.
