DrupalEasy Podcast 73: Lots of Options


Thomas Turnbull (tom_o_t on drupal.org) and Alan Palazzolo (zzolo on drupal.org) join Mike Anello to talk about their new book from O’Reilly Media, Mapping with Drupal. Mike’s usual co-hosts, Andrew and Ryan, were both unable to participate in the podcast, leaving Thomas and Alan subject to Mike’s long-winded (but extremely interesting by some accounts) questions.

Five Stories

  1. Mapping with Drupal, OpenLayers, GMap, Geofield, Leaflet, and the Geospatial Modules Assessment.
  2. When will Drupal 7 installs beat Drupal 6 installs?
  3. Drupal community metrics
  4. iO1 Acquires drupalmodules.com
  5. chx needs a break
