DrupalEasy Podcast 102: Spackle

Larry Garfield (Crell), leader of the Drupal 8 Web Services and Context Core Initiative (WSCCI), joins Andrew Riley, Ryan Price, and Mike Anello as they desperatly tried to stay out of the weeds during their discussion about routing, hypermedia, controllers, and REST (and somewhat fail).

In addition, we discuss importance of Hackathons and not over-reacting.
