CINDY MCCOURT has been a freelance website planner and builder, instructional designer and instructor, project manager, and facilitator, and has taken part in planning and building numerous Drupal and non-Drupal websites and web-based systems over the past 14 years. In 2005, she built her first Drupal website using Drupal 4.6 and has been using Drupal on her website development projects ever since.
Over the past 20 years, Cindy has been designing, developing, and delivering workshops and courses on technology- and non-technology-based subjects for both corporate and higher education organizations. She has also written technical papers on many topics for governmental and private-sector clients. Cindy maintains a close relationship with the Drupal community through her blog (http://idcminnovations.com), by speaking at Drupal events, and by offering Drupal training. She has been described by some in the Drupal community as a professional cat herder (http://rocktreesky.com/professional-cat-herder-win).
Cindy started acquiring many of her skills in 1985, when she went to work for TRW. Her 12 years at this worldwide contractor provided her with signifi cant insights into project management and the many tasks associated with the lifecycle of a project. She was also an early TQM facilitator and trainer, and has made process analyses, design, and improvement tools in her web development toolbox.
