Not available for day contract work.
Limited availability for weekend/evening freelance work.
Hi, I'm Oliver Davies, a Web Developer and System Administrator based in Newport, South Wales. I specialise in PHP development with Drupal and Sculpin, and Linux system administration. I’m also currently learning Symfony2 framework and Silex.
I’m currently a Senior Developer at Microserve - a specialist Drupal development agency based in Bristol. I previously worked for the Drupal Association, and for other UK agencies such as Precedent and Nomensa, in permanent and contract positions.
I still occasionally work on freelance projects in my spare time - please get in touch for any more information.
I'm a contributor to Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 core, as well as to other open-source projects including COD (the conference organising distribution, built on Drupal), Sculpin (a static site generator written in PHP), various Puppet modules and Ansible roles, and the Drupal VM project.
I maintain several contrib projects on Drupal.org, and have contributed to numerous others - including several relating to Drupal.org itself, such as Bluecheese (the Drupal.org theme) and the Drupal.org customisations module.
I mentor new Drupal contributors online and in person at local sprints, DrupalCamps and DrupalCons, and have helped several new contributors to get their first commits to Drupal core.
I organise Drupal user group events such as talk nights and code sprints in South Wales and Bristol, and am a founding DrupalCamp Bristol organising committee member. I also regularly attend and speak at other meetups and conferences related to Drupal, PHP, Linux, DevOps, and web deveopment and accessibility.
