DrupalEasy Podcast 230 - Ryan Price (feature flags), Andrew Riley (news, module picks, bikes), The Change Notice (Chris Weber)

We missed a week, but we're back with a super-sized retro episode where we talk with two of the original DrupalEasy podcast hosts! First, Andrew Riley drops by to cover some recent Drupal news and make some module picks-of-the week (including a Drupal logo memory game!) Then, Mike speaks with Ryan Price about feature flags - it's not a module, not a service, but rather a design pattern. Finally, Chris Weber also has some new change records for us.

During this episode around the 23rd minute, config split was discussed. I've found this DrupalCon session discussed its usage quite well: https://youtu.be/x2kYZhgUSU0?t=732

At around 6:39 Mike says, "BLT... uses the built-in web server that comes with PHP... 'Build Load and Test' is what BLT stands for, I believe. I believe what it does is it provides a really good structure for... a multi-branch developer workflow." That, unfortunately, is almost entirely incorrect. BLT stands for "Build and Launch Tools", and it's "Acquia's toolset for automating Drupal 8 development, testing, and deployment". It provides tools for local development, automated testing, production artifact generation, and continuous integration & deployment.
