Earl is the author of the very popular Views module, as well as the Panels and CTools modules. He has been involved in the Drupal community since 2005 and his contributions very quickly earned him recognition as one of the most high profile contributors to the project.
Along with Views, Panels, Nodequeue and a host of other smaller modules, he is also responsible for major improvements to Drupal 6’s theming system and install system. He has focused on software designed to improve the user experience for the site developer and designer, attempting to build tools to bring flexibility that was previously limited to serious developers.
Earl is also one of the fifteen founding members of the Drupal Association, a Belgian non-profit organisation whose purpose is to help Drupal grow.
In his new role as Director of Research at IO1, Earl will continue to innovate and develop disruptive software such as a Views and Panels but will also be working on developing an IO1 suite of Drupal products, as well as working on Drupal solutions for IO1’s impressive portfolio of corporate clients.
Earl says, ‘IO1 is one of the leading providers of large scale Drupal development in the corporate world, so I am enthusiastic to get to work with them on improving the products and services for the Drupal community. My role as Director of Research gives me the opportunity to work on even more interesting and innovative software while also working closely on the implementation of major client projects.’
MD of IO1, John F Galvin, commented,‘Earl has a fantastic track record and is probably the most innovative person in Drupal around at the moment. Having Earl as part of the senior team at IO1 is a huge reflection on how far IO1 has come since we started four years ago and why we continue to be the UK’s No.1 Drupal specialist consultancy.’
Notes to Editor
IO1 was started by John F Galvin and Jonathan Russell after they worked together for a number of years in the corporate sector. After spending years building large scale systems they wanted to get out and have a go at building the solutions they always wanted to build for customers who want to be at the forefront of their sector.
They have steadily, over the last 4 years, built up an extremely strong team who have focused on developing processes and systems that produce stunning results for clients. IO1 is focused on growth through strategic partnering, and attributes much of its success to date to its existing strategic partners.
