You found me, so you probably already know my name is Amy Cham. I live in Edison, NJ, a relatively painless train ride away from NYC, with my husband, a ginger cat named Ginger, and a little shih tzu mix named Giselle.
For fun, I enjoy making things...photographs, food, crochet items, and miscellaneous other odds and ends. I've also recently gotten into health and fitness, working with an awesome trainer who takes no excuses, and eating as cleanly as I can.
As I write this, I am sitting in the lobby of the Westin Bonaventure, the official hotel of DrupalCon LA! I've been part of the Drupal community--and a huge fan of the platform and its associated people--since the end of 2007. For the past seven years, I've built Drupal sites, marketed Drupal agencies, written about Drupal, trained end users and new site builders in how to use Drupal, helped to organize Drupal events, and have amassed a remarkable collection of Drupal t-shirts, stickers, and other goodies.
See a pattern?
It was messy, and sometime ugly, and probably should have been done in Java, but it was FUN. And I miss it.
So I'm going back to development.
I'm looking to join up with an agency, but I don't have samples yet. For the present, I'm studying up on methodologies--modern OOP JS, OOP PHP, Drupal code standards, coding for responsive design, etc--and getting acquainted with project necessities like GIT, Drush, BDD, and so on. I also want to spend some quality time in the coder lounges here in LA and submit my first couple patches this week.
I can do a custom sample at any time, but stay tuned for something nifty by the end of summer!
Here's where else you can find me on the internetz:
