This is the personal website of Karl Kedrovsky.
Professionally I'm currently working at VML, an interactive agency, as a Group Technical Director. I manage a group of technologists that do fun things like website builds, CMS implementations, digital strategy/planning and mobile applications. I'm mostly focused on delivering content management solutions using Drupal and Wordpress but I also have extensive experience in application architecture and Java/JEE development. I also do a fair amount of technical consulting, lead the Drupal practice within VML and co-organize the local Drupal user group.
Personally I'm a Christian, husband (one wife - Martha) and father (two daughters - Abigail and Julia). We live in Overland Park KS, a suburb of Kansas City.
If you've never been to a Drupal camp you're really missing out. Camps are kind of like conventions but they're smaller and a whole lot easier to participate in. The talks are more like discussions than lectures, it's easy for everyone to interact with anyone else, and it's a great opportunity for anyone to give back to the community. I've been to DrupalCorn for the last two years and both times I've come away feeling like the experience was more valuable and rewarding than just about anything else I've done in the community that year.
DrupalCon Austin is over. This was the first time in a few years that I didn't have to man a booth or go to meetings for the majority of my time. That gave me a lot more time to attend talks, BoFs, and just have conversations with lots of different Drupalistas.
Over the last few years my long-neglected blog has been running on Drupal. That was mostly due to the fact that I use Drupal in my day job (and most side projects) and when I needed a way to stand up a simple site it was the path of least resistance. Other than that and the ability to easily enable comments (more on that later) there was no real reason why I needed a CMS, the site is pretty much just static content.
