Agile Humanities Agency

Dean Irvine,

Integration between DiRT tool directory & DHCommons project directory (Research IT), module upgrade (Slavic faculty project), extensive custom theme (History of Art faculty project)2014/11/20Quinn Dombrowski,

Dean Irvine, the person in charge of AHA, is an English professor in Canada who has led a number of Drupal-based digital humanities projects. He deals with the logistics and paperwork for a number of developers he's worked with who want to do freelance work on academic projects. He has extensive experience with higher ed, particularly the humanities, and communicates well with faculty, including those with little or no technical experience (though I've volunteered as a technical go-between for these projects.)

Project 6

Daphannie Stephens, ConnectEd
I can't say enough about how highly I recommend Project 6.  They are outstanding to work with on every level. They are absolute professionals with an ability to be innovative and creative that is noteworthy.  Unfortunately, you do not often find such a high dose of creativity, collaboration and professionalism in one organization or individual but it can be found at Project 6.  I was most impressed with their ability to problem solve and design around a number of challenges.  They are just amazing!

2022/04/06Amit AsaravalaNotes from 2013: I've just recently helped the Statistics Dept relaunch their site, and have worked with more than a dozen other university groups on Drupal 6 and 7 sites.  Here's just a handful:

I have experience getting the sites set up on Pantheon, integrated with CalNet, and have multiple strategies for importing events from and courses from OSOC.  I'm also insured to do contract work for UC.
