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 Tuesday, August 12 at 8:11 am
Dries Buytaert (Dries), founder and lead of the Drupal project and co-founder and CTO of Acquia joins Mike, Andrew, Ryan, and Ted for a very special episode of the podcast. We peppered Dries with questions on wide array of topics including Drupal 8 pace, semantic versioning, and initiatives, funding core development, Drupal 6 support, Acquia Lift, Acquia Engage, Dries’ score on the Acquia Certification Exam, the founding of Acquia, and not-exactly-why Taylor Swift was cut from one of his keynotes (phew!).
