Gábor and I sat down for a chat at United Nations headquarters at NYCCamp in April 2014. We talked about the very productive contribution sprints at the NYC Camp; effecting positive change in the world with technology and how Drupal 8 will enable anyone to communicate using tools in their own language; and the incredible energy and quantity of contributors at the Drupal DevDays in Szeged Hungary.

This session aims to show you around all the great improvements and give tips as to how to best utilize the new solutions.

The Executive Director of the Drupal Association, Holly Ross, and I sat down to talk at NYC Camp 2014 at United Nations Headquarters. Roughly one year on from her appointment to the Drupal Association job, I got the chance to ask her about her Drupal "origin story", what she thinks about the community now that she's in the thick of things (we're a welcoming and diverse bunch), and the role of technology and especially Drupal in making the world a better place.

Every DrupalCon, there's a moment I especially look forward to: the First-Patch "ritual". This time around, a patch written by Matt Moen, Technical Director at Kilpatrick Design, was selected for fast-track testing, approval, and was committed to Drupal 8 core in front of a few hundred of us at the Austin convention center. In this podcast, I talk with Matt about becoming a core contributor; we hear from Angie "webchick" Byron about how it takes a village to commit a patch; and I've included a quick refresher on how version control works with the Gitty Pokey from the DrupalCon Austin pre-keynote. You can see the full patch approval and commit process in the 2nd video embedded on this page.

Kris Vanderwater (eclipseGC), and I got together in a Google Hangout plagued with technical difficulties to discuss DrupalCon Austin and Kris's new job as Acquia's Developer Evangelist. In the sections I could save and keep reasonably useable after editing, we talk about Drupal 8 and the incredible energy present in the Drupal community recently; a couple of hot topics DrupalCon Austin; and Kris's new job as "a developer for the community".
