2013 Greatest Hits – "PHP is as secure as any other major language" – Anthony Ferrara

I met Anthony, aka @ircmaxell, for the first time at the PHP BeNeLux conference in early 2013. He was among the first people I spoke with on mic about PHP. Our conversation about PHP being secure was one of the seeds that grew into the "Power of PHP" series on Acquia.com, though you'll notice we were still calling it "PHP Myths" at the time. The series will be continuing in 2014, stay tuned to the Acquia podcast and the Acquia blog for more!

2013 Greatest Hits – Meet Angie Byron: The Return of Webchick

Angie and I were at Acquia headquarters in Massachusetts at the same time in the spring of 2013. This gave us the chance to sit down and chat in front of the camera about all things Drupal. Highlights from our conversation became two podcasts with accompanying video. In this part of the conversation, Angie talks about how she got into Drupal and more.

2013 Greatest Hits – Gaelan Steele meets Dries

One of my favorite Drupal moments in 2013 was meeting Gaelan Steele in person at DrupalCon Portland. This was eclipsed very quickly by being present when Gaelan and Dries met for the first time - and having my podcast microphone on! This was probably also eclipsed by Gaelan schooling Dries on how he learned to use Drupal ... see his answer below and in the podcast.

Dream It. Drupal It. (Develop It!) DrupalCon.

Hey developers ~ new, experienced or otherwise, undecided!

Dream It. Drupal It. (Drink It!) DrupalCon.

Can you believe that DrupalCon is less than a month away? I certainly can't! This year, DrupalCon is taking over Portland, Oregon, the home of the Drupal Association, our west-coast office, as well as a burgeoning open source community.
