DrupalEasy Podcast 167 - Ted Spoils Star Wars (2015 Year in Review)

In this very special holiday episode of the DrupalEasy Podcast, (most of) the co-hosts pick our favorite Drupaly things from 2015, including our favorite Drupal moments as well as our favorite things about Drupal 8. Ted teaches us about the spirit of Christmas, Andrew talks about his favorite podcast episode, Ryan makes a surprise appearance, and we meet Kelley Curry (BrightBold), our newest co-host.

Our Favorite Things

Drupal moment of the year

  • Mike - DrupalCon Barcelona community keynotes.
  • Ryan - adding new hosts to DrupalEasy Podcast / recording the April Fool's Day Episode / singing the Drupal Oddity song at DrupalCon Karaoke in Los Angeles and watching Mike H freak out.
  • Andrew - Being at work and having my boss ask what happened to the DrupalEasy Podcast. It was the April Fools Day episode. He was afraid we all lost our minds.
  • Kelley - DrupalCon LA prenote / release of D8 with my first 4 core commits / getting asked to join the podcast.
  • Ted - Acquia U, Drupalcon LA Hallway Track.

Drupal 8

  • Mike - View modes being a first-class “thing”.
  • Ryan - that I got to learn Dependency Injection, Services, OOP.
  • Andrew - Namespacing (more PHP but hey, we can now use it). Or more meta, we now fit into the rest of the PHP world.
  • Kelley - Theming improvements: Classy, Stable, Twig debugging.
  • Ted - OOP - CMI - Death to Features.
