Cody DracarsWeb Developer
Cody is the Web Developer for the college. He started working for USAO after his graduation from the university in 2008. He majored in computer science.
Cody was instrumental in moving the 10,000 plus web presence into Drupal -- a content management system that would allow faculty, staff and students more flexibility in updating and maintaining their portion of the website. The transformation is an on-going process and Cody said he has learned a lot about Drupal while on the journey.
Cody is part of the Media and Community Relations Team and does occasionally leave his computer to help with public events and teach web training classes.
In addition to working and graduating from USAO, Cody has one more tie to the university -- his wife Amanda -- who is a 2007 USAO alum.
Before Amanda and he were married, Cody Dracars was known as Cody Weeks. When the couple wed, they both changed their name to Dracars to dispel the myth that marriage meant ownership of a wife or spouse. Dracars means 'Dragon Art' or 'Art of the Dragon.'
