Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is having a great week so far. Apologies this thread is coming to you a bit late, but I was in Orlando for Florida DrupalCamp over the weekend and just returned to work today!
This Week’s Featured Tweet:
This tweet from @ultimike sums up this year’s Florida DrupalCamp perfectly. The event experience was energizing, inspiring, and full of connections. Being someone from a non-developer background, I appreciated how welcoming and nice everyone was! Huge thank you to all the volunteer organizers, sponsors, partners, and everyone else who helped make the event happen. Note: You can check out the #FLDC2022 hashtag on Twitter to see highlights from the event!
Now, let’s get right to it! For those of you who are new here: Work Out Loud is a weekly opportunity to share what we’re working on, who we’re meeting with, and what we’re doing in our free time. There are no rules here—share whatever you’d like!

This Week, I Am…
Prepping for our upcoming WebOps Wednesday Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions, which are text-based and occur on our Community Forum here. This week’s AMA thread with Elda Schaffield (@emscha), Manager of Student Services Information Systems at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), is live! Join the discussion thread to ask Elda about working in the higher ed website operations space, working as a woman in IT, traveling/living in other countries, and adjusting to different cultures.
Scheduling calls with Heroes as well as continuing to have calls with vendors as our team is figuring out what we need in an advocacy management system that can be used first for our Heroes.
Catching up on emails/Slack messages from being out of the office for the past week!
