DrupalEasy Podcast 111: It Depends

Kay VanValkenburgh (kay_v), training designer and owner of OwnSourcing, a Drupal training and development firm based in Boston joins Ryan Price, Ted Bowman, and Mike Anello on the 111th edition of the DrupalEasy Podcast. Kay is somewhat of an expert when it comes to designing effective mentoring programs, so we decided to pick his brain about Drupal community mentoring, professional mentoring, what makes a good mentor, and why nobody but Mike likes the word, “mentee”. On top of all that we talked about Drupal UI basic principles, free Drupal development hosting, the (future) Drupal 8 logo, and our picks of the week.


Five Questions

Each podcast we ask our guests the same five questions. Here are Kay’s answers:

  1. MacBook Pro, TextWrangler
  2. Chris Breuer
  3. Key West
  4. Larry Garfield (crell)
  5. In-context documentation

It's interesting that you mention Security Check module. Are you aware that Security Review also has a drush command that provides even more reviews and is extensible?

Ah yeah, I totally forgot about the Security Review module! I'll make a note to try to re-familiarize myself with it prior to the next podcast and report back.
