FFW is excited to announce that Leonid Makarov has been named an Acquia MVP, making him one of only 11 recipients throughout the world. Acquia is a provider of open cloud hosting, developer tools and support for Drupal, the open source content management platform that unifies content, community and commerce. The MVP program recognizes outstanding contributions from Drupal developers that highlight, embed, and extend Acquia products.
Leonid was awarded the Acquia MVP 2014 for his work in embedding the Acquia Platform into the delivery process for a templated site platform that enables clients to self-provision site instances. Leveraging Acquia Cloud APIs and custom Drush commands, site instances provisioned to their own docroot with Jenkins and site configurations are maintained in a Git repo in a YAML file.
