AcquiaU Session: 
2014 Winter Session

The Ferdinand of AcquiaU

Me: nerd of prey and small-town guy with a big heart. When I was accepted into Acquia University, I was getting a masters in media from The New School in NYC. I never had a formal education in computer science or web development - my interests were filmmaking, italian subs, and 80’s alternative music. But, I had a job for several years plugging in content on Drupal sites, and because I really enjoyed the Drupal experience and community, I wanted to take it to the next level. I’m learning sitebuilding, coding, and project management, and it really feels like I’m starting a career the right way.
