Greg Dunlap (aka gdd or heyrocker), former Drupal Initiative lead and pinball enthusiast and current Director of Strategy at Lullabot, joins Tag1 Consulting’s Managing Director Michael Meyers in this Tag1 Team Talk in our 20 years of Drupal series. Greg is another individual who took an unusual route into programming and open source work with projects like Drupal. Over 15 years, Greg’s experience in Drupal has led him from one US coast to the other, and across the world to Sweden.
While Greg started programming in high school, his experiences have taken him through photography and photojournalism, building slot and pinball machines, and then into Open Source software. In this interview, Michael and Greg talk about the differences between Greg’s early experiences and the Drupal project, how things have changed, and the future of Drupal. Greg also talks about his time as the Drupal initiative lead for Configuration Management (CMI), and the ups and downs of that work.
