Cathy Theys (YesCT) makes the quickest return guest visit in the history of the DrupalEasy podcast to help provide Ted and Mike with an overview of the current status of Drupal 8. We talk about most of the Drupal 8 initiatives as well as the-things-that-are-not-initiatives-but-feel-like-initiatives. We also go all meta meta (not a typo), and rejoice at the death of upgrading a site (hello, migrating). If that wasn’t enough Drupal goodness, we also talk about Certified to Rock, Le Tour De Drupal, and the future Panopoly 1.0.
- Cathy is a Community Contributor for Cheppers, a Drupal shop in Budapest Hungary with about 15 people. She’s also a Drupal community sprint organizer extraordinaire (Global sprint weekend: Jan 25-26), and a Drupal community new contributor trainer (follow @drupalmentoring for days and times). Also, check out her blog posts on Getting Paid, and the awesome company that stepped up to make it happen.
