The Quiet One
I came to Acquia U with Drupal admin chops and front-end experience from several years of building and maintaining websites for non-profits. But as a degreed naturalist and self-taught technologist, there were a lot of gaps in my abilities to support and maintain Drupal sites and to navigate high availability hardware.
After Acquia U, I transitioned to the Support team where I was eventually nicknamed "Titanic" in association with resolving a high rate of "iceberg" (deep and complex) support requests. After a stint in Support, I then transitioned to the Acquia Ready team where I've facilitated many successful site migrations and launches for new customers on Acquia Cloud.
Acquia U was a pivotal experience that opened up a lot of new possibilities. I'm glad to see Acquia U coming back, and to anyone who might be "on the fence" I highly recommend taking the leap.
