I got the chance to catch up with Alan Burke at DrupalCon Prague. He and I go back a long way; we met at one of the first Drupal events I ever attended, DrupalCon Brussels in 2006. In the meantime Alan and his co-founder Stella Power have built up the successful Drupal agency Annertech in Ireland and they have an impressive list of contributions to Drupal to their names. Here, we speak about Drupal's technical history over the last 8 years and the exciting improvements coming in Drupal 8, the business climate for Drupal in recession-plagued Ireland, and the Drupal community's culture of teaching, learning, and sharing.
In this episode I talk with Melissa Anderson about training in Drupal, and how Drupal knowledge and experience can be shared in the community.
User Experience Designer Lisa Rex from Acquia joins Andrew Riley, Ryan Price, and Mike Anello in this episode of the podcast to discuss her involvement in the Drupal community, DrupalCon session proposals and sprints, potential interview questions for Drupal developers, and a very brief discussion on the Drupal Security Team’s secret knock. As always, we also have our picks of the week and an especially time-sucking site of the week.

An important thing to understand, therefore, is how to resolve conflicts effectively so that the purpose of the group is not adversely affected.
Emma Jane Hogbin and Acquia's Erich Ludwig join Andrew Riley, Ryan Price, and Mike Anello in this super-sized podcast to discuss Emma Jane’s new book, “Drupal User’s Guide”, Acquia’s new “U”, and a bunch of other Drupal-related stories from the past couple of weeks.

With advances in Apache Solr and Drupal, it is easier to do some really neat things with geolocating search results and displaying those results on a map. In this episode I talk with Neil Hastings of TreeHouse Agency about the work they did with Solr and OpenLayers maps for the US Dept of Energy.
