Drupal 7 RC2, worldwide release parties, Drupalcon Chicago sessions, and Larry Garfield’s stellar post about Drupal’s audiences lead the way as Andrew, Ryan, and Mike get together for another DrupalEasy podcast. Listen in as they talk about Wolfgang’s Master’s Degree, Mike stumbles trying to extract meaning from Crell’s mind, and they all get excited about the potential increase in DrupalCon session quality.
Mike Meyers, the CTO of Examiner.com, talks about migrating their site to Drupal 7 and gives an update since his previous interviews at DrupalCon DC and DrupalCon Paris. He discusses how he is able to attract top Drupal talent by emphasizing contributing back to the community and developing on the cutting edge platform of Drupal 7. Examiner has also subcontracted with a number of Drupal shops like Tag1 Consulting for performance, Cyrve for data migration and Boombatower Development for testing and updating the coder upgrade module. Examiner was also a primary sponsor of the Drupal Security White Paper co-written by Greg Knaddison. Meyers also talks about some of the features of Drupal 7 such as being able to use multiple database backends, fields in core, RDF, and the semantic web as well as how they’re using Open Atrium and Drupal for their internal processes to provide collaborative platforms for their citizen reporters and citizen journalists. Finally, he talks about his excitement over the growth of Examiner.com and re-launching it on a foundation of Drupal 7 to continue to iterate and innovate on new features.
