In this episode, Addi is joined by Todd Nienkerk of Four Kitchens and Brian Skowron from Lullabot to discuss "consultancy scrum." We start off by briefly explaining what scrum and agile are, and then dive into the lessons learned about using this methodology in a client/vendor relationship, versus a completely internal product team.

Mark Shropshire: Charlotte Drupal Drive-in - Feb 22nd

Fri, 03/01/2014 - 11:27pm

The CharDUG (Charlotte Drupal User Group) is hosting the Charlotte Drupal Drive-in on February 22nd at Classic Graphics in Charlotte, North Carolina.

What is a Drupal Drive-in? The idea is to have an un-conference-style one day event where attendees have the opportunity to propose topics for group discussions to fully prepared presentations. Each attendee will get to vote on the topics presented during the event.

If you want to learn more about the concepts and inspirations behind Drupal drive-in type events, check out the recent DrupalEasy podcast 119. Our very own Thomas Lattimore discusses his concept behind the Charlotte Drupal Drive-in event.

Whether you have a topic idea for the drive-in or not, you are invited to register today!.

I am really looking forward to seeing old Drupal friends and meeting new ones at the event. It will be a blast.

Tyler Frankenstein: Build a Pebble Application to Record a Geo Position in Drupal

Fri, 03/01/2014 - 12:32pm

This tutorial describes how to build a Pebble "smart watch" application for a Drupal website using the PebbleKit Javascript Framework.

The application itself will be fairly simple. It will wait for you to click the "Select" button on the Pebble watch. Once the button is clicked, the app will grab your current latitude and longitude coordinates. It will then use the Services module to create an Article node and save the coordinates onto a Geofield on your Drupal site.

Let's get started!

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

Fri, 03/01/2014 - 2:14am

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!
