Free/Libre Software

We seek to ensure a free and open internet, by building, promoting, and supporting the open source software on which it’s built.

Drupal, Infrastructure, DevOps


Derek Laventure

Derek brings an ever-present, user-focused awareness to his decades of DevOps experience. He has transformed problematic legacy web projects into sophisticated, effective and easy-to-manage web properties.

Derek explores and exploits the natural affinity between Information Architecture, aimed at meeting users on their own terms, and the heavily technical discipline of data design and implementation. Underneath it all, he has a solid, ground-up mastery of network infrastructure. And all of this is delivered with a terrific smile.

Michael Keara


User Advocate, UX designer, Drupal Developer


Michael Keara

Michael is obsessed with making web systems that are really easy to use. As a developer and a keen UX strategist, he knows that it always begins - and ends - with the user. He has advocated for ‘Outside-In’ UX strategies since 2001 and introduced the concept to the Drupal community in 2011.

He’s equally at home sitting down with users to watch and learn about their needs as drilling deep inside system architecture to find ways to make it easier on the outside. Michael is not afraid to change the paradigm to bring new strategies to old problems.
