Keynote with Jennifer Lea Lampton

The DrupalCamp Twin Cities planning committee is excited to announce that Jennifer Lea Lampton will be returning this year to present a keynote.

Jen is currently a senior Drupal developer at Chapter Three in San Francisco, California. She has been building websites with Drupal since 2006, and is an active contributor to the Drupal project.  Jen is very noisy in the drupal.org issue queues and IRC, maintains several of her own modules, and is now a member of the Drupal core usability team. Jen is a huge advocate of the open-source community, and has been organizing the Bay Area Drupal Camp (BADcamp) since 2007, and DrupalCon San Francisco in 2010.

 

Recently, Jen has been focused on improving usability and "learnability" in Drupal core. After spending the better part of two years writing curriculum and attempting to teach people how to work with Drupal, she decided that the problem is not a lack of documentation, but instead that Drupal is not intuitive enough, or consistent in its implementation. A huge part of her struggle to make Drupal "make more sense" to people includes an initiative she's leading with many others, to replace the theme layer in Drupal 8 with something better.

At Twin Cities Drupal Camp this year Jen will be leading a sprint on the new theme layer, as well as offering one of our pre-camp Drupal training workshops.
