Tara King

Customer Success Engineer / Pantheon

I am a Drupal backend developer, working on the Customer Success team at Pantheon. I started in Drupal as a site builder, and gradually taught myself the necessary skills to become a backend developer--and now I spend my days helping folks at every skill level with their Drupal and WordPress sites at Pantheon.

I am on the leadership team for Drupal Diversity & Inclusion, and am the founder & initiative lead for the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Contrib Team.  Contrib Team focuses on increasing contributions to the Drupal project from under-represented individuals, using year-round mentorship, new recruiting methods, and advocacy for better OSS contribution practices. 

Outside the drupalverse, I write poetry, ride my bike and play board games.

Diversity & Inclusion: Building a Stronger Drupal Community

culture / being human / drupal community

Watch the session video here.

Diverse communities are strong communities, and Drupal is less diverse than it should be. Open source has the potential to transform society for the better, but we are currently missing out on much of that opportunity. We can make the Drupal project better by making the Drupal community a place where a wider range of people can participate and contribute their knowledge and skills.

Command line basics for site builders

site building / devops / process

Watch the session video here.

As a site-builder-turned-developer, I know just how intimidating the command line can be.  In this session, I'll demystify the command line, and empower YOU, the site builder. With a basic grasp of the command line, you'll work more quickly, do more, and understand some of the tech behind your Drupal site.

We'll cover: 

* The basics of the command line: What's a terminal? How is this thing a text editor? How do I navigate my file structure?
