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 143: Scheming (Schema.org integration in D8 - Stéphane Corlosquet)

Stéphane Corlosquet, Sachni Herath, Kevin Oleary, Chris Wells, and Kay VanValkenberg join Mike, Ted, and Ryan for a look into Drupal 8's impressive integration with Schema.org. The RDF UI module is really the star of the show, it promises to provide a super-easy way to create a content type based on an existing schema. We also talk about Dries' 2014 Drupal retrospective, Twig syntax vs. tokens, and Mike's bad internet connection causes hijinx. Picks of the week include a font for demos, a lightweight alternative to a popular Drupal module, and Views changes in D8.

DrupalEasy Podcast 142: New Jersey (News Lightning Round)

...and we're back! After a holiday hiatus, Andrew, Ryan, Ted, and Mike are back for a guest-less news round-up. We set the timer and spent 3 minutes on over a dozen different Drupal-related news items from the past 8 weeks. Topics covered include Drupal 8, Drupal.org user personas, a major merger, someone gets a job, and several 2014 lists, along with our picks of the week.

DrupalEasy Podcast 137: Are you the Drupal guy? (Dries Buytaert)

Dries Buytaert (Dries), founder and lead of the Drupal project and co-founder and CTO of Acquia joins Mike, Andrew, Ryan, and Ted for a very special episode of the podcast. We peppered Dries with questions on wide array of topics including Drupal 8 pace, semantic versioning, and initiatives, funding core development, Drupal 6 support, Acquia Lift, Acquia Engage, Dries’ score on the Acquia Certification Exam, the founding of Acquia, and not-exactly-why Taylor Swift was cut from one of his keynotes (phew!).

DrupalEasy Podcast 134: Don’t Call it DevOps - Kevin Bridges

Kevin Bridges (cyberswat), Director of Technology at New Media Denver and self-proclaimed Open Source Technologist, joins Mike Anello (ultimike) to take a fresh look at DevOps. We learn that we (mostly) shouldn’t even be using the word “DevOps”, it’s all about processes and culture, sharing is the key, and there’s a business model for specializing in this thing that we’re no longer calling “DevOps”. Additional topics include project- vs. team-based community funding, Drupal 6 support, and as always, our picks of the week and 5 questions!

DrupalEasy Podcast 133: Top Secret Drupal (Capital Camp and Gov Days)

Jessica Dearie (jdearie) and David Stoline (dstol) join Andrew, Ryan, and Mike to talk about the upcoming Capital Camp and Gov Days, taking place on July 30-August 1, 2014 (free for attendees!) We also learn about two top-secret Drupal groups, do a DrupalCon Austin review, and say “Morten” more times than anyone should be allowed to. Not enough for you? How about some Picks of the Week and 5 questions?

DrupalEasy Podcast 131: DrupalCon Austin Day 1

Austin has begun and Mike, Ted and Ryan are all on the prowl for interesting subjects and people at the Con. Dani Nordin of Boston gives us a quick update on her talk subject, we hear from Dave Datars, the CEO of Acquia's fresh acquisition, TruCentric, a user experience personalization company from Toronto. We also hear from Mike, who gets to interview Dries and all of the keynotes live on stage. See the DrupalCon keynote video for that interview.
