At DrupalCon Baltimore, I got the chance to chat with David Porter and David Stinemetze from Rackspace. Listen to this conversation to learn a little more about the Daves, Drupal at Rackspace, and the value of Acquia's certification program to individuals and organisations. If you can make it, don't miss your chance to get a 10% discount on taking an Acquia certification exam by taking the Drupal 8 certification crash course at Texas Camp 2017!

Michael Schmid, Group CTO at Amazee, sat down in my Cologne office in March 2016 with the idea of comparing the promise of Drupal 8 to the real life experience of him and his teams. The conclusion? It's already great and will keep getting better. With so many Drupal 8 projects now underway, I expect to be hearing a lot more of this sentiment in the near future! Below is a full transcript of our conversation.

Wim Leers, Senior Software Engineer in the Acquia Office of the CTO (aka “OCTO”), has been busy in the last few years making Drupal 8 amazing! His contributions include working with Fabian Franz on aspects of Drupal’s new caching and rendering systems to make Drupal 8 performant. Today’s podcast is a conversation he and I had about who he is and what he’s been up to following our own collaboration preparing my own post on BigPipe.

Erica Schroder joined Acquia in 2012 as a graduate of the Acquia U Drupal training bootcamp and is an inspiration to me as a successful career-changer. As part of running arts and dance businesses, she's had a hand in with Drupal since Drupal 5 days, but Acquia U and her subsequent experience has made her a real Drupal pro. We got the chance to sit down together in 2015 at Acquia's Boston headquarters.

PHP FIG? PSR Standards ... What are they? What are they important? This conversation with Lorna Mitchell is another in a series of interviews Campbell Vertesi (@CampbellVertesi) and I carried out in preparation for DrupalCon Asia in Mumbai. We are building the world’s longest DrupalCon session and packing all 6+ hours of it with information and personalities you won’t want to miss! So actually ... For our one hour in the spotlight in Mumbai, we’ve been doing a lot of preparation. Our “session” will include a lot of additional materials like podcasts and blog posts about what we’ve learned along the way.

Part 2 of 2 - Amy Parker, the Director of Acquia University, and I sat down in Acquia's downtown Boston headquarters to talk about Acquia's technology boot camp, affectionately known as "Acquia U". In this podcast we talk about the diversity of candidate backgrounds, the candidate selection process, and go into what makes a successful Acquia "Ubie." We also talk about measuring the success of a program like this in human terms.
