Drupal Career Online - Spring 2016 - Begins March 7

DrupalEasy Podcast 124: 78 in Pasadena, 79 in Orlando

Christefano (christefano) and Lee Vodra (nodiac), co-founders of Exaltation of Larks and DropLabs and Nate Craddock (nate_craddock), Drupal developer at Princess Cruises join Ted, Andrew, and Mike to talk about Greater Los Angeles DrupalCamp - GLADCamp. A few mentions of Florida DrupalCamp, the battle for the body field, and Drupal 8 versioning also find their way into the podcast, along with our picks of the week!

DrupalEasy Podcast 123: It’s Got Berdir

Alex Pott (alexpott), Cathy Theys (YesCT), and Jozef Toth (mogdesign) join Ted Bowman and Mike Anello to solve all of the Drupal’s community funding problems - or at least to dream about a solution. Alex is one of the Drupal 8 core committers and has successfully used Gittip and other means to be able to raise enough money to work on Drupal 8 full-time. Cathy has successfully found multiple sponsors to support her work in the community (mainly on Drupal 8) and Jozef is co-founder of Drupalfund, a web site where Drupal developers can post projects and request sponsors (think Kickstarter for Drupal). As if that wasn’t enough, we also have picks of the week (including a pick-of-the-week cage match between Ted and Mike) and our 5 (more like 11) questions.

Light a Candle

Average: 4.3 (3 votes)

Right now, there are nine, highly motivated people on the East Coast of Florida who are burning the midnight oil... focusing evenings on classes and labs, and days on projects and resources to master the Drupal skills that build new careers and make them valuable members of the Drupal Community. They are the select few of the 2014 Drupal Career Starter Program, and in less than two months, most will be ready for work experience as interns.

DrupalEasy Podcast 122: Insert Witty Title Here

Tim Plunkett (tim.plunkett), Drupal 8 core contributor joins Andrew Riley, Ted Bowman, and Mike Anello to discuss Views in core, the state of the Drupal 8 configuration managment initiative, and to make his prediction as to when we’ll see the first Drupal 8 beta. All that plus a few face at the DA, Panopoly 1.1, and four non-module picks-of-the-week.

Florida DrupalCamp 2014: Breaking New Ground

FLDC home page

For the sixth consecutive year, Florida DrupalCamp will be one of the largest gathering of Drupal users in the southeast United States. Taking place on Saturday, March 8 (sessions) and Sunday, March 9 (community day), there’s no better way to level-up your skills, network with the Drupal community, and to remind you how awesome it is to be involved with this amazing project. Along with numerous other organizations, DrupalEasy is once again proud to help to sponsor and organize Florida DrupalCamp. Our amazing team of organizers from around the state (as from outside of Florida as well!) has decided to rethink a couple of the standard DrupalCamp “things” in an effort to make the event more productive for attendees and sponsors.

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 (5 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.
