DrupalEasy Podcast

Started in 2009, the DrupalEasy Podcast is a weekly review of new developments and announcements in the worldwide Drupal community with regular appearances by notable Drupal community contributors. Rotating co-hosts Andrew Riley, Anna Kalata, Kelley Curry, Michael Anello, Ryan Price, and Ted Bowman bring their collected experience and geeky obsessions to the virtual airwaves to enlighten, inform, and (sometimes) entertain Drupal hobbyists and professionals around the world.

DrupalEasy Podcast 209 - Local Development Environments

Ted Bowman and Mike Anello, both back from DrupalCon Nashville, spend some quality time together to catch up on all the latest happenings involving local development environments. Ted hosted some BoFs about the topic, and Mike posted a comparison of some of the more popular Docker-based, Drupal-focused local development tools, so we figured it was a good time to devote an entire podcast on the topic. In addition, Mike and Ted name their "favorite thing" from DrupalCon Nashville.

DrupalEasy Podcast 208 - Brooke Candelaria - Preparing You for DrupalCon Nashville

Brooke Candelaria, (htownbrooke), the new Conference Director for the Drupal Association joins Mike Anello to introduce herself to the Drupal community as well as to provide a preview of DrupalCon Nashville as well as her thoughts on the evolution of DrupalCon Europe. Topics discussed include trivia night, the decoupled summit, rodeos, Hurricane Harvey, The Princess Bride, the DrupalCon Europe licensing bidding process, shoulder pads, and perhaps the greatest answer ever to our always challenging "exotic animal" question.

DrupalEasy Podcast 204 - Tim Lehnen and Neil Drumm - Drupal.org tooling

Tim Lehnen, (hestenet), Director of Engineering for the Drupal Association and Neil Drumm (Drumm, Senior Technologist at the Drupal Association join Mike Anello to take a bit of a deep dive into the continuing evolution of Drupal.org tooling - specifically the modernization of the issue queue, patch process, code reviews, and more. Along the way, we try to figure out where (when?) the phrase "feather in your cap" comes from, exactly what Neil does in his free time, and why Mike isn't nearly as cool as he thinks.

DrupalEasy Podcast 203 - David Hernandez (New Jersey, Governance, Docksal, tiny zoos)

David Hernandez, (davidhernandez), one of the DrupalCamp New Jersey organizers as well as one of the "evolution of Drupal governance" volunteers and Manager of Learning and Contributions at FFW and an Acquia certified Grand Master joins Mike Anello to talk about all of this roles (and a few more), trends in Drupal meetups, regional camps, and DrupalCons, event organizer burnout, and Docksal. In addition, we really had to work to figure out the answer to one of the "five questions".

DrupalEasy Podcast 196 - Ryan's Ace(?) in the Hole - Paragraphs Module

Ryan Price and Mike Anello discuss the pros and cons of the Paragraphs module, including using it for layout and/or information architecture. Ryan takes the discussion in unexpected directions by bringing up Pattern Lab as a prototyping tool and his mysterious "Ace in the Hole" (which Mike feels is more like a Jack of spades). In addition, there's some discussion about a new-ish feature in the Migrate Plus module that is sure to make migration developers happy.
