DrupalEasy Podcast 121: Good Soul

Damien McKenna (DamienMcKenna) makes his fourth appearance on the podcast (one more and he gets a tweed jacket!) to talk about the Metatag module and his prolific contribution history. Along the way Ryan Price sneaks in to join Ted Bowman and Mike Anello to discuss Drupal’s 13th birthday, some facts about core development in 2013, and Dries’ Reddit AMA.

DrupalEasy Podcast 120: Megapage!

Chris Shattuck (chrisshattuck) from BuildAModule.com joins Andrew and Mike to talk about learning and teaching Drupal 8 developer programming concepts, including the almost 3 hours of videos that are already available on BuildAModule.com (object-oriented PHP, autoloading, namespaces, etc…) We also talk about faster PHP, Drupal 8 in the wild, anger a future guest, and short pants.

DrupalEasy Podcast 119: It Goes in the Body Field

John P. Weiksnar (jpw1116) and Thomas Lattimore (tlattimore) join Ted and Mike to talk about Drupal mini-camps, a new-ish idea that provides many of the features and benefits of a traditional DrupalCamp with much less planning and overhead. Along the way, we talk about all the different ways to add JavaScript and CSS to a Drupal site, learn some bad habits from Ted, get reminded how important mobile devices are, and discover a dead-simple way to test drive Drupal 8.

DrupalEasy Podcast 118: Is it an Initiative or a Thing?

Cathy Theys (YesCT) makes the quickest return guest visit in the history of the DrupalEasy podcast to help provide Ted and Mike with an overview of the current status of Drupal 8. We talk about most of the Drupal 8 initiatives as well as the-things-that-are-not-initiatives-but-feel-like-initiatives. We also go all meta meta (not a typo), and rejoice at the death of upgrading a site (hello, migrating). If that wasn’t enough Drupal goodness, we also talk about Certified to Rock, Le Tour De Drupal, and the future Panopoly 1.0.

Teaching Drupal's "Big Five"

Average: 5 (2 votes)

I teach Drupal to a lot of people. One thing I have learned, is that whether I'm teaching people who are so new that they're still learning how to pronounce "Drupal" or I'm teaching current users the intricacies of the Migrate module, there's one common thread: without a solid understanding of Drupal's "Big Five", students will have trouble gaining the confidence that all Drupal developers, themers, site-builders, and anyone else who interacts with Drupal on a daily basis need.

DrupalEasy Podcast 117: Thanksgiving at Ted's

Jeff Eaton (eaton), Senior Architect at Lullabot, Drupal core contributor (Token API, Form API), author/maintainer of the Voting API, Entity Views Attachment, and others. Host of the Insert Content Here podcast, and (according to our very unscientific poll) one of the most popular Drupal speakers ever in the history of the world joins Andrew Riley, Ted Bowman, and Mike Anello to talk about what makes a great presentation and (possibly) to retire one of the five questions.

DrupalEasy Podcast 116: Bad Part of Town

Jesse Beach (jessebeach), Drupal accessibility expert, Spark team member, and senior front end developer with Acquia joins Ryan Price and Mike Anello to talk about accessibility features going into Drupal 8. Along the way we discuss how to pronounce the word “aural”, the dark recesses of Drupal admin area, and various methods to best pick up animal sounds on podcasts.

DrupalEasy Podcast 115: Bigger and Free-er

David Hwang (eatings) and Anne Stefanyk (Annabella) join Andrew Riley, Ted Bowman, and Mike Anello to talk about the 2013 Bay Area DrupalCamp. We talk about what it takes to put on a camp of this size as well as the summits, sprints, and sessions that will be taking place October 24-27, 2013. In addition, we have a DrupalCon Prague whip-around, wish we wrote Bryan Braun’s excellent blog post about sharing knowledge, and share some picks of the week.

Feed Your Organization's Pet Drupal Project a Willing New Site Builder

Average: 4.3 (3 votes)

Most Drupal shops always seem to have a few pet projects on the to-do list that are perpetually 2-3 months off - those pesky bill-paying client projects always seem to get in the way. If only there was some way to throw some person-hours at them as a way of gaining some momentum and making some progress. It's actually not that difficult to find the right developer (if you know where to look), the payoff could be great (especially if it can be an additional revenue stream for your organization), and it could help max out your karma score.

tl;dr: We're getting ready to graduate 18 such developers - contact me if you'd like to see if one of them is a good fit for your organization.

Bringing on a new Drupal developer who is hungry for experience could be the perfect solution since many of the posted job openings for Drupal talent are for (seemingly) everything but junior developers.
