Ryan Price, Andrew Riley, Mike Anello, and special guest Stephen Barker (DigitalFrontiersMedia on drupal.org) discuss all the Drupal news that’s fit to talk about. Stephen Barker is a Drupal developer based in Sarasota, Florida with a background in biology and augmented reality (and somehow manage to tie it in with Drupal). We talk about mobile app development, Drupal 8 core initiatives status, Panels versus the world, as well as a bunch of other current stories. As always, we make our picks of week and announce our site of the week.

Another great podcast!
Mike, that insert module is absolute gold, don't assume some your newbie audience knows all the stuff you do! Keep'em coming...
We talked a little in the podcast about BrowserStack but I forgot to mention this little known alternative from Adobe--BrowserLab:
This service is complimentary with an AdobeID (which I believe is also free to set up). I'd never actually used it until I got thinking about having forgotten to mention it during our discussion of BrowserStack in the podcast. So I decided to give it a go.
It's actually quite nice. It has a number of really useful functions such as 2-up comparisons as well as onion skinning overlays of different browser versions. Definitely worth checking out.
Hopefully you find it useful.
