Early adoption of Drupal 8? There's a podcast for that

As we gear up for a busy Symfony summer, we’ve rounded up some of our latest podcasts, hosted by our friends at Acquia, to discuss early adoption of Drupal 8 and why it’s such a big deal anyway… View the podcast: Drupal 8 and Symfony

Richard Miller and Tom Kitchin delve into Drupal 8 and discuss how Symfony components will improve Drupal and vice versa. “This is what open source is all about,” says Tom. “The free exchange of information, of good ideas. This is what makes it work.”

“Development against a moving CMS is exercising with treadmills. You run like hell and you end up pretty much where you started, but maybe you’re feeling better about it.” - Tom Kitchin on Drupal 8.

Both Tom and Richard were part of the core engineering team who built sensiolabs.co.uk, one of the first sites to run on Drupal 8. In this podcast, they share the inside story of launching in pre-pre-pre-alpha stage.

Paul Wander - VP Sales and Marketing for SensioLabs UK and partner company Inviqa - has also joined the podcast agenda to share his views on the growth of PHP in the enterprise and how a different approach to software development is delivering better value for business.
