DrupalEasy Podcast 101: Pinball Wizard

Greg Dunlap (heyrocker), leader of the Drupal 8 Configuration Management Initiative (CMI), joins Andrew Riley, Ted Bowman, and Mike Anello to kick off the 2nd hundred episodes of the podcast. Greg provides an excellent rundown of not only the features of CMI, but also his fund-raising efforts that allowed him to work full-time on it for seven months! In addition, we used Greg as our test subject for a new podcast feature that we call “five questions”, discussed PHP versions, how much money an average Drupal developer makes, and the DrupalCon location selection process. All this, plus our picks of the week (hint: someone’s involved pinball)!

Interview

Greg was named the Drupal 8 Configuration Management initiative lead in March, 2011 by Dries, Funding CMI, Where is the CMI today?.

Five Questions

Each podcast we ask our guests the same five questions. Here are Greg’s answers:
1. 11” MacBook Air (no external monitor!), TextMate, NetBeans, Chrome.
2. Nick Schuch (nick_schuch), Lee Rolands (larowlan), Jeremy Thorson (jthorson), Wim Leers (Wim Leers), Devin Carlson (Devin Carlson), Alex Bronstein (effulgentsia), Tim Plunkett (tim.plunkett), Jesse Beach (jessebeach), Cameron Eagans (cweagans), Alex Pott (alexpott). Clearly, we need to better enforce the pick one rule.
3. Chicago, Las Vegas.
4. Jeff Eaton - eatoncon keynote.
5. Replace FormAPI with Symphony’s form system.
Want to know what the five questions are? Listen to the podcast!
