Drupal and HP Cloud: DrupalEasy Interview
At DrupalCon Denver, Ryan Price of DrupalEasy interviewed me about what it means to be a Developer Experience engineer at HP Cloud. We talked about the new HP Cloud PHP bindings, our new HP Cloud Drupal module, and the recent release of my Drupal 7 Multi-Site book/ebook. As always, hanging around with Ryan was a blast.
Since that podcast, there have been a few happenings on the topics I cover:
- We've vastly improved performance on the HP Cloud PHP library. I have a blog coming with details about how we chopped 70% of our network traffic time off of our HTTP requests.
- HP Cloud is about to launch a MySQL Database As A Service, and we'll launch updated PHP bindings and the Drupal module too.
- I also recently posted an update on getting Drupal Vagrant running on Windows 7. It's now quite a bit easier than it was when I wrote the book, as the devs for Ruby, VirtualBox, and Vagrant have all been hard at work. Hooray for Open Source!
