Improving Drupal governance

As a result of Randy Fay's blog posts and Drupalcon Denver core conversation on Drupal governance (see show notes for links), Dries Buytaert convened a working group to define the first steps in the refinement of Drupal governance. In this episode, I sit down with the working group members to talk about what they have been working on, what they have accomplished, and what the next steps are in defining what governance in the Drupal community should look like.

Meet Acquia's training partners

By Heather

I'm going to be blogging about our training partners and their trainers this summer, because they are awesome, and I'm very proud of what they're doing. All of our training partners are really busy.

Meet the YLE: Drupal at the Finnish national broadcaster

The Finnish national broadcasting company, YLE, must be one of the earliest institutional adopters of Drupal. They go all the way back to 2004 and Drupal 4.3!
