I figured we could start this group with a "virtual" edition of the Drupalchix BoF at Drupalcon Boston. Go around the "circle," as it were, and introduce ourselves, both to get to know each other a bit, but also so that we're aware that there /are/ other women out there in the Drupal community. ;)
So let's do some introductions... who are you, where are you from, what do you do for a living, what's your background, how'd you get into this crazy Drupal stuff, what do you do with Drupal, and whatever other random facts you'd like to share?
I'll kick it off, I guess...
My name's Angie Byron. I'm originally from Rochester, Minnesota, United States but I now live in Montréal, Québec, Canada with my wife Marci (at least when I'm not trapped in Boston for 3 days due to stupid snow ;)). I work for Lullabot, where I help train new Drupal developers and also do consulting with big companies to help them get up to speed on Drupal quickly, and help them work /with/ the community, rather than alongside it.
I've been a "geek" for pretty much all my life, starting with a huge video game obsession when I was a kid, and blossoming into a fascination as a teenager with computers, technology, and the impact they can have on society as a whole. I have some background in a few different computing areas, including web development, databases, design, security, and hardware, but most of it I forget now because I've been involved with Drupal for so long. ;)
I got my start in Drupal as a Google Summer of Code student in 2005, and since then have sought out to help out in as many ways as possible. I do core development and patch reviews, I (badly) maintain a few modules and themes, I help out with documentation, I manage Drupal's involvement in programs like Google Summer of Code, and I'm a member of the Drupal Association. Basically, I'm completely, utterly obsessed with Drupal and it's my life mission to help get others as crazy about it as I am, because it's so much fun. :D
So how about the rest of you folks?
