Guillaume Duveau : freelance Drupal developer

Drupal developer

I am a Drupal developer since 2008 with the version 5, then 6. Today, I mainly develop in Drupal 8, and still a lot in Drupal 7. But what does "Drupal developer" mean ? There are in facts 3 main fields of competence : the Drupal developer so to speak, the Drupal site builder and the Drupal themer.

Wordpress developer

Being a Wordpress developer is natural for a PHP developer. It's an excellent CMS which powers 80% of the web sites on the Internet.

I love Wordpress very much and I often recommend it instead of Drupal when its power - and complexity - is not really needed.

Symfony developer

I became a Symfony developer since Drupal 8 and also in my maintainance experience in Drupal - Symfony coupled projects, for major clients.

I love Symfony which is a marvel of PHP technology, such as Laravel and Zend. My experience is relatively limited though.

My experience

At CNRS

I was web engineer at CNRS (French national scientific center) from 2004 to late 2016. I developed and managed a website for a large community (more than 10 000 people), first in custom PHP and then with Drupal 5 and 6. There, I started to develop Drupal modules and themes.

As a Drupal expert, I co-lead CNRS' web platform redesign project under Drupal 7. I also made an intranet prototype with Drupal 7.

At last, CNRS often asked for my advice on Drupal sites. CNRS also asked me to join internal and external professionnal selection boards as an expert.

In Freelance

I am a freelance developer since 2017. I work from Toulouse, France, and I can go work in the client office in that area. Or I can work remotely.

I'm working in web agencies where I build websites and develop back-office code. My services are mainly requested for Drupal, but I also work in Symfony, Zend, Wordpress. The final clients are medium and major companies.

I'm also developing for a startup in the aeronautics field, which uses Drupal extensively. Their processes follow the industrial norms and I learnt a lot from them.

Future ?

I desire to develop mainly in Drupal 8 for upcoming projects, with Symfony of course. I prefer the big projects, rationally managed and involving a lot of team work.

I'm getting more and more invested in web sites industrialization : development and staging architecture, environments and configurations management, behavourial tests (Behat), continuous integration (Gitlab-CI, Jenkyns, Travis...) or semi-automated (Ansible...).

Freelance missions, long-term contracts or partnerships... I will consider any mutually benefical business proposition which would, among others, allow me to explore further those fields.

Contact me

For work examples, contact me, because what I could show would not be representative. Indeed, I signed some confidentiality clauses, 99% of my code is never publically released and some web sites I worked on are still in finalization.

Follow me

Here are my professional social network profiles, and also accounts on opensource communities. I don't check them everyday so you might have to be a little patient, but don't hesitate to add me to know more about me!

Unfortunately, I can't allocate as much time as I would like to share as much interesting information as the information I'm consuming. But from time to time, I can publish an article on my blog. Enjoy your reading!
