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.
Certified To Rock has been a topic of much discussion in the Drupal community since it first came on the scene last year. In this episode I talk to Greg Knaddison and Ben Jeavons of Growing Venture Solutions, two of the driving forces behind CTR. We talk about how it came to be, what its purpose is, and future plans to enhance it even more.
