Kristof Van Tomme is an open source strategist and architect and the CEO and cofounder of Pronovix. He’s been building bridges between the documentation and Drupal community for a few years now. He’s co-organizer of the London Write the Docs Meetup and cheerleader for the Amsterdam Write the Docs Meetup. After his first two InnerSource conferences, Kristof got really excited about pattern languages and how they can be applied to help teams develop better documentation despite the constraints that exist for internal software programs. He initiated and later became the co-organizer of an introductory Drupal course at the University of Szeged, Hungary. As a permanent member of the Drupal Association, he’s served as the lead for the selection task force for European Drupalcons and of the inaugural Nomination Committee and the initiator and (co)lead of Drupalcon Szeged (2008), DrupalCXO Brussels, Amsterdam, and Rome, Drupal Developer Days Brussels (2011), Drupal Government Days (2011), and the Write the Docs unconference in Berlin (2014 July). He has a degree in bioengineering and is a regular speaker at conferences in the API, DevRel, and technical writing communities.
