DrupalEasy Podcast 119: It Goes in the Body Field

John P. Weiksnar (jpw1116) and Thomas Lattimore (tlattimore) join Ted and Mike to talk about Drupal mini-camps, a new-ish idea that provides many of the features and benefits of a traditional DrupalCamp with much less planning and overhead. Along the way, we talk about all the different ways to add JavaScript and CSS to a Drupal site, learn some bad habits from Ted, get reminded how important mobile devices are, and discover a dead-simple way to test drive Drupal 8.


Five Questions

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

  1. John: Linux/Vim, Thomas: MacBookPro/Sublime Text 3
  2. John: Mike Pirog (pirog), Thomas: Scott Reaser (cottser)
  3. John: Niagara Falls, Thomas: Atlanta
  4. John: VOIP integration, Thomas: Render API
  5. John: DOAP (Description of a project), Thomas: content staging
