I had to groan when I heard this question yet again - 'What does your grandmother think about what you do?'. Variations on this question by male interviewers crop up far too often. What is it about mens' attitude to older women? Do they really think that women of a certain age are too stupid to understand web technology and the internet? PLEASE can we have an end to it?

grandmother, Drupal expert (front and backend) with a thorough knowledge of responsive design, html and css, jquery, git............

Oh my, sorry you took offense, but no disrespect was intended.  It could have (perhaps should have) just as easily been “Your father or grandfather,” a representation of a likely less-tech minded person in Angie's life.  

I get it though, as I groaned with equal offense at your blanket generalization of men and their attitudes toward older women. ;)


Nicepodcast from Angie Byron. Drupal 8 has some great features with the advance HTML5, multi-lingual and mobile support. This is more stable version and we can experience more advanced and secured features with Drupal 8.

I particularly enjoyed this podcast. A real treat and inspiration to hear Angie talk about Drupal. I came away with new ideas and great information. Also thank you for the One Story links. I was trying to write the info down in the car and couldn't quite manage. Awesome podcast! Thank you.
