About Me

Picture of Oliver

My name is Oliver Davies (aka opdavies) - a Full Stack Web Developer and System Administrator based in Wales, UK.

I primarily work with Drupal and am an Acquia certified Drupal Developer but also work with Symfony, Laravel and Sculpin. I’m a Senior Developer at Microserve, part-time freelancer, former Developer at the Drupal Association, open source contributor and advocate, mentor and conference speaker.

I’m a webmaster and documentation maintainer for Drupal.org, and a provisional member of the Drupal Security team. I speak at various user groups and conferences, and co-organise the Drupal Bristol user group, PHPSW and DrupalCamp Bristol.

You can usually find me on Twitter (@opdavies), and you can see my open source work on my Drupal.org account and GitHub profile as well as on Packagist and Ansible Galaxy.
