Stéphane Corlosquet, Sachni Herath, Kevin Oleary, Chris Wells, and Kay VanValkenberg join Mike, Ted, and Ryan for a look into Drupal 8's impressive integration with Schema.org. The RDF UI module is really the star of the show, it promises to provide a super-easy way to create a content type based on an existing schema. We also talk about Dries' 2014 Drupal retrospective, Twig syntax vs. tokens, and Mike's bad internet connection causes hijinx. Picks of the week include a font for demos, a lightweight alternative to a popular Drupal module, and Views changes in D8.

Video: What is Drupal? (for people who don't know what a CMS is)

Average: 3 (3 votes)

I've been on the road a lot lately, touting the opportunities that Drupal offers to workforce and economic development efforts of regions and states. Thing is, before we can get to all the advantages for regions to develop a Drupal-talented workforce, we have to educate a lot of government leaders, commissions and committees on what Drupal is and does.  In short, they need to "get it." This means understanding not just what Drupal is used for, but why it is growing as quickly as it is.  Decision makers in many of our forums do not know what a content management system is, nor what open source means. That's a lot of ground to cover before we can even get to the whole training component!

So, in our usual DrupalEasy approach to making things more efficient, we created an under-three minute video that seems to meet our needs.  No audio as yet, but we are open to suggestions as to a voice over, or some open source diddy that might make it a bit more engaging.  Give it a look, and let us know what you think, what we can do to improve it, and how you might be able to use it.  Also, if you need to explain Drupal to anyone, feel free to pass it along.  DrupalEasy proudly presents... V1 of: What is Drupal?
