Adam Hoenich (phenaproxima), lead author and maintainer of the Drupal Module Upgrader joins Ryan, Ted, and Mike to talk about moving modules from D7 to D8, MidCamp, D8 Accelerate matching funds, ranking Drupal support mechanisms, and Ted's personal phone number. We also have some great picks of the week, and plenty of information on the upcoming Florida DrupalCamp 2015!
- Drupal Module Upgrader.
- Cameron (grom358) from PreviousNext of the Pharborist project.
- Other modules Adam maintains: Corresponding Entity References. Also Better Blocks, a drag and drop UI for D7’s core block system. You should review it and make suggestions, because Adam would like to promote it to a full project!
- Drupal Career Online Spring 2015 begins March 24
- Book Review: Programmer's Guide to Drupal
- (humblebrag) A Tale of Two DrupalCons - DrupalEasy's "Career Lab" session was the highest rated session at DrupalCon Austin.

Picks of the Week
- Mike - Commerce Customizable Products module by Ryan Szrama (rszrama) - allows the buyers to enter information about a product they're ordering without it having to be a product attribute ("special instructions", for example). Also Finalize the Migration system.
- Ted - Config in Code (CINC) - Scott Reynen. MidCamp Session
- Ryan - Community Spotlight: Aaron Winborn by Leigh Carver. Check Aaron’s D.o Profile to see a few of his contributions. Via Aaron: “In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Hope Loves Company (an organization for children who have or have had a family member living with ALS).”
- Adam - Reroute Email. Forces all outgoing e-mail to go to a predetermined address, so that you don’t spam users by accident during development or testing. A lifesaver of a module, and it’s been around since D5 but I live under a rock.
- Florida DrupalCamp 2015 - April 11-12, Orlando, Florida.
- Online Drupal 7 Module Development Learn Module Development Online.
- DrupalCon Los Angeles, May 11-15, 2015.
