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.

The time is right for Drupal products

The very best session I attended at DrupalCon Copenhagen was "WordPress is better than Drupal: developers take note" by Jennifer Lea Lampton. While I disagree with the premise - comparing a purpose-built product (WP) to a framework designed to be completely flexible (Drupal) - the session was fantastic, well-presented and raised many valid points.
