A quick live podcast featuring a reaction from Mike and Ryan about [Dries' Drupal 9 Blog Post](http://buytaert.net/making-drupal-upgrades-easy-forever). Recorded on YouTube Live, and this audio version is reposted to our podcast channel for your convenience.
Almost all of the DrupalEasy Podcast hosts congregate to take a look back and a look forward at Drupal 8. We discuss some of our favorite things about Drupal 8 as well as what we're looking forward to the most in the coming year. Also, Anna provides us with a first-person look at DrupalCamp Northern Lights (Iceland), and Ted leads a discussion on Drupal 8.3.
Brian Lewis (bjlewis2), front-end engineer for Four Kitchens, and founder of Modules Unraveled joins Ryan Price and Mike Anello to figure out if/when we should all be using Composer to manage our Drupal projects. Once that was figured out, there were some picks of the week, Drupal-y news, and Brian goes on the hot seat for five questions.
