Towards the end of 2010, a job opportunity as the Drupal Developer for the University of Michigan Library emerged on my jobs feed. I was intrigued by the opportunity to be able to bring my Drupal development skills to an institution of this caliber. Fortunately, I was offered the position and started in February of 2011. During my time at the Library, I gained invaluable experience developing, maintaining and supporting two large Drupal sites for students, faculty and staff. I also gained a tremendous amount of experience utilizing a Linux terminal and Git to enhance my programming skill sets. To this day, I continue to utilize the skills I acquired at the Library, and am very thankful of that opportunity.
