I specialize in Drupal solutions and especially, automating the development cycle for Drupal websites and have done so for over 20 or so Drupal websites. I also am an expert at setting up infrastructure tailored for Drupal applications.
What does a Technical Architect do
Simply put, I architect solutions, mainly in the Drupal space. :)
Jokes aside, I build, architect and consult on Drupal websites and projects. I have worked with multiple departments of the US Government, Government of India, NGOs, UN Agencies, World Bank, and many other small, medium and large enterprises.
I stay current on all things web, especially Drupal and consult on multiple projects, setup hosting infrastructure and automate things wherever possible. Testing new web technologies and trying to learn new programming languages, frameworks and distro-hopping are my favorite hobbies and a part of my job description thankfully!
I work on cloud infrastructure as well, specifically with the likes of AWS, GCP, DigitalOcean, Scaleway, Pantheon, Platform.sh, Acquia and so on. My expertise is in building highly scalable and available hosting architectures in AWS for Drupal projects along with end-to-end automation of the same.
I interview candidates for QED42 and love interacting with people technically. If you would like to work with me, feel free to reach out. My contact details are all over this website. :)
Most of my work revolves around Drupal. My recent projects include the revamp of our company website www.qed42.com, where we created a really awesome content authoring experience for our content team and containerized our prod environment with Docker. I spoke about the same at the Drupal Con Europe 2021.
I've also been working with providing a fully automated Drupal optimized cloud hosting service for our current and prospective customers.
Apart from this, I'm always working on my personal projects, which include Acephalous an out-of-the-box headless Drupal distribution and my blog as well as a command line tool for warming CDN caches using the sitemap in RUST.
Recently a lot of my work has also been with UNICEF. Two of which we built from scratch at QED42 are live; Knowledge@UNICEF, a portal for UNICEF to publish all of it's technical data. UNICEF Venture Fund's public facing website is another one. UNICEF Venture Fund invests in start ups or companies that build technology products for children.
Apart from that I've been helping build new features for UNICEF's GBV products laaha.org and erefer.org. These products are really trying to provide women support and safe spaces where they are really needed. My work with UNICEF so far has been really fulfilling and challenging.
Rust is a programming language I've been trying to get started with for sometime now. I've done some small projects, and trying to slowly learn this awesome language. For people who say Drupal has a steep learning curve, wait till you try Rust! Sigh! Here's what I've done in rust so far: https://abh.ai/tags/rust
I've also published a cargo crate that loads pages of a website using it's sitemap. It's called warmer.
That's all folks
