Cristina Chumillas

Senior Front-end Developer

Barcelona, Spain

Cristina is a front-end developer and designer, or what some people call a UX Engineer. She is a Drupal core committer (provisional Front-end framework manager), Drupal core Usability maintainer, Drupal core Claro maintainer, and organizes Drupal and other tech-related events in her local community.



She is currently working on redesigning Drupal’s administration interface and has co-organized several Strategic Initiatives like the Admin UI & JavaScript Modernisation Initiative together with fellow Lullabot, Sally Young.



Cristina spent several years in the graphic design industry, but her development career began when she went freelance and had to make her own designs a reality. She learned to code while learning Drupal and found her place in the local community by organizing a Barcelona Drupal event in 2012. She has been involved in the community ever since and credits this involvement for helping her land a job at a Barcelona Drupal agency building websites for big NGOs.

Cristina has a Graphic Design, ESDi degree from Universitat Ramon Llull and training in digital marketing and UX. She enjoys practicing sports, especially running and swimming, and illustrating.
