About Emma

Emma Jane Hogbin has been working as a Web developer since 1996, helping individuals and organizations to realize both their own potential and the potential of their online presence. Her first book, Front End Drupal, has been wildly successful and has been responsible for many "A-HA!" moments. Through her business, HICK Tech, Emma enables individuals and small businesses to take control of technology. She is also a frequent speaker at technical events in Canada, the US, and Europe.

Passionate about helping people to acquire knowledge, Emma volunteers with the Drupal and Ubuntu documentation teams. She is well known in the Drupal community not only for her technical knowledge, but also for her engaging and humorous means of bringing Drupal to a wider audience–such as the Drupal socks and their GPLed pattern. She is known as “emmajane” on drupal.org.
