Andrew and Kathryn McClintock have worked with Drupal for seven years, nearly two now as a married couple. As an interaction designer and frontend developer, respectively, they've teamed up to build dozens of Drupal websites, both within their professional roles at Amazee Labs and as weekend warrior freelancers and hobbyists.

In this session, Andrew and Kathryn talk about how they solve problems individually, and how they work together to deliver beautiful solutions to their clients.
