Team

Netuxo has a modest, but highly experienced, team of three, who work with a known and trusted pool of additional web developers, graphic designers and user interface experts. Our core team includes specialists in Drupal and Wordpress development, server administration and project management. This enables us to provide a holistic and effective service that combines caring for and supporting our clients and their concerns, with creative design, engaging content development and plenty of functional plumbing.

Pronoun: She/her

I have worked with Netuxo since 2003, tackling a broad range of tasks for the co-op. My professional background is in newspaper and web publishing and also in co-operative development and social housing. I have been working with Drupal since 2004. In the rest of my life I've worked towards the end of the military-industrial-patriarchal complex in as idiosyncratic and fun ways as I've been privileged to.

When not managing projects, developing Drupal sites, or delivering training for Netuxo, I can be found out and about on my bike (a Genesis Croix de Fer — the tank girl of bikes for places with hills! — which I love … obviously), or working in the veg garden, both at home and in support of the Comida Real local food project.

I'm currently splitting my time between Hackney, London and Las Alpujarras in southern Spain ... hanging out with an amazing dog family and a bunch of chickens.

    Co-ops - not co-opted

    For better or for worse and to a lesser or greater degree, formal and less formal co-operatives and collectives have been the structures in which I have always worked, whether as a volunteer or for-money.

    Reflections on migrating to or from Drupal

    Over the years we have carried out quite a bit of migration work, mostly to or between Drupal sites, but also from Drupal to other platforms such as Wordpress.

Pronoun: they / them

I joined Netuxo in 2014. My background is in environmental engineering and I worked for more than 12 years at War Resisters' International as a programme worker. I have been working with Drupal for several years and have experience both as a client of Netuxo, accompanying development, and also as a Drupal developer. Additionally, I have extensive experience managing medium and larger scale projects and of working in NGOs and social movement organisations.

I like escaping for long tours on my bicycle from time to time (Latin America, the Pyrenees, ...). My interests include nonviolence training and social movement organising. I usually identify as genderqueer.

    Simplenews and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

    We have been building a new module to integrate GDPR requirements with Drupal’s Simplenews module in a bid to make Simplenews subscriptions compliant. In this post I’ll outline some of the achievements so far - and also some of the remaining challenges ahead...
  • Getting your Drupal-8 website to tweet!

    We often want to tweet something when adding new content to our website. The Drupal Social Initiative provides a unified framework for posting of content to various so-called social networks, but a lot is still missing.

    Is the internet sustainable? Guess what? No it isn’t.

    We often think of “the internet” as a “virtual world”, somewhere in “the cloud”. Want to know something? Quickly use your search engine of choice to find out. Or browse Wikipedia. Need something?

Pronoun: he/him

I'm a long-term Netuxo collaborator and co-conspirator, focusing mostly on cross-platform front-end and Wordpress work, though sometimes I am the person who updates your site to the latest codebase.

Over the past few years I've been designing and developing bespoke themes and building front end applications, exploring Node and React .js and, more recently, RESTful Drupal. I've got solid background in Wordpress development too, with a bit of maintenance and hosting experience on the side.

Like everyone at Netuxo, I can spread my wings pretty far, but what I really love is making content look and work, beautifully.

If I'm not in front of the screen I'll be on a cross-country run or training in the local Kenpo dojo. With time and dedication I've got myself a black belt and I'm currently learning to become a sports trainer.

    Front-end development workflow

    I wanted to share a series of short technical blogs looking at our front-end development workflow and highlighting some of the more useful things I have learned during its evolution.
