Micky Metts, Founder and CEO, DrupalConnection

I used to work from 9-5 in the corporate dot-com world. Now I choose to help small businesses and entrepreneurs create and maintain Web sites, using Drupal a FREE software package. I act as a freelance developer for individuals and small companies using Drupal (the same platform used by whitehouse.gov, Sony and MTV,) as a CMS – content management system. I have been involved with the Drupal community since 2006. Drupal has allowed me to create Websites for my clients and teach them how to update and maintain them. I started teaching Drupal Basics and Introduction to Drupal in 2008 to my clients, and found that there was a need to get this information out to a larger audience.
