Larry Garfield (Crell), leader of the Drupal 8 Web Services and Context Core Initiative (WSCCI), joins Andrew Riley, Ryan Price, and Mike Anello as they desperatly tried to stay out of the weeds during their discussion about routing, hypermedia, controllers, and REST (and somewhat fail). Along the way, we learn what Drupal developers of all disciplines and skill levels can expect from WSCCI, and why it's going to make the (Drupal) world a better place. In addition, we discuss importance of Hackathons and not over-reacting.
Larry works for Palantir.net and blogs at GarfieldTech.com. He mentioned Symfony, the status of WSCCI, the new WSCCI Conversion guide (still in progress; need to cover forms), and currently open conversion issues.
Each podcast we ask our guests the same five questions. Here are Larry’s answers:
- Mac at work (by force), PC at home, NetBeans everywhere.
- Kat Bailey (katbailey).
- Anywhere that everyone is in the same hotel.
- Jeff Eaton (eaton)
- He would answer SCOTCH if we let him, so we dragged Twig out of him instead.
