New Podcast

Posted Wednesday, January 28 at 3:16 pm
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.
