Training

Our next event:

The Git version control system can sometimes be a little intimidating for new users -- until you learn just a little bit about what is under the hood; then the full power of this modern version control system is fully revealed.

New Podcast

Posted Wednesday, September 10 at 9:14 am
Rick Manelius (rickmanelius), project architect at NEWMEDIA, and one of the leading minds in our community when it comes to PCI Compliance, joins Mike Anello to further demystify PCI Compliance and the role it plays in any site that involves credit card data. We also discuss two-factor authentication, when we might see a Drupal 8 beta, and Drupal’s persistence.

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.

Interview

Five Questions

Each podcast we ask our guests the same five questions. Since Cathy already answered four of them in a previous podcast, here’s her only answer:

  1. menu routing
