Hello, my name is Mauricio Dinarte. I collaborate with Agaric.coop as a Drupal developer and trainer. In addition to Drupal, Python, and ReactJS development, we offer training on various topics like Drupal migrations and custom development. I also started UnderstandDrupal.com with my brother Carlos to share our learning with the community in multiple languages and formats. We produce content in English, Spanish, and French in text and video format.
Nicaragua is the tropical paradise I call home. Located in Central America, it sports vivid flora, exuberant fauna, crystal clear beaches, perfect surf waves, colorful mountain ranges, impressive active volcanoes, and calid temperatures rounding 85 degrees all year round. Would you like to pay us a visit? Meanwhile, have a virtual tour of one of our active volcanoes at https://www.ge.com/digitalvolcano/ When you come around do not miss Ometepe! It is an island formed by two volcanoes rising out of Lake Cocibolca, a freshwater lake that hosts sharks. Concepcion and Maderas, the two volcanoes, pack stunning waterfalls, soothing thermals, and majestic views.
Recently, I have delved into Drupal migrations. Last year I wrote a series of 31 articles covering many topics of the API. Check it out at https://understanddrupal.com/migrations I have also presented sessions and workshops on migrating from different sources as well as upgrading to Drupal 8 from versions 6 and 7. At the moment, I am working on writing two books and two video courses on these subjects.
Over the years, I have worked on several areas of Drupal including site building, theming, and module development. I have also worked with ReactJS for stand-alone applications and embedded ones inside other CMS.
I enjoy teaching and traveling. So far, I have presented 30+ sessions and workshops at 20+ DrupalCamps and WordCamps across America and Europe. Topics include website creation basics, content migrations, Drupal and WordPress testing with Behat, theming with Twig, ReactJS, and more.
Open source has given me so many opportunities in life. Because of that, I strive to give back in many ways. At home, I serve as the lead organizer of the Drupal community and as volunteer organizing WordCamp Managua. Internationally, I have served as mentor at Drupal events as well as member of the DrupalCon program team and the Drupal Global Training Day initiative.
If you want to know more about Nicaragua, speaking at conferences, traveling, Drupal, WordPress, ReactJS, or Pantheon… Ask me anything! ¡Pregúntame lo que quieras! Demande-moi n’importe quoi!
