DrupalEasy Podcast 74: The Marketing of Drupal

There’s a full house on the podcast this week as Andrew, Ryan, and Mike are joined by Dave Terry (Mediacurrent), John Hannah (Friendly Machine), and Glenn Hilton (ImageX Media) to discuss the Drupal community’s less-than-stellar effort of marketing our beloved software to people outside the community. Both Dave and John have written thought-provoking blog posts on this topic in the past few months while Glenn has been a leader in organizing and evangelizing Drupal business summits. We also managed to discuss the Drupal Association’s recent at-large elections, Coworking Fridays, Acquia’s recent code contributions, recent usability studies, as well as our picks of the week!

As always, we make our picks of week and announce our site of the week.

Andrew Riley, Ryan Price, and Mike Anello interview part of the team from Droplabs, a Los Angeles-based Drupal-centric co-working facility. In addition to the usual latest Drupal news and picks, we spoke with Christefano Reyes, Blake Senftner, and Lee Vodra about the genesis of Droplabs, its place in the LA Drupal Community, and how they’re feeling their way in making the space successful in the long term. <--break->

DrupalEasy Podcast 63: Epic

Mike Anello talks with Benjamin Melançon (mlncn on Drupal.org), the “person to blame” for The Definitive Guide to Drupal 7, an epic new book from Apress. They discuss all 1047 pages of the book in great detail, as well as dive deep into extensive biographies of all 34 authors and contributors. In the remaining 7 seconds of the 46-minute podcast, they also manage to talk about DrupalCon London, Acquia’s recent buying spree, a new release of Drupal Commerce, and MailChimp’s outstanding Integration Fund program.
