Recorded March 9th, 2017
This episode we sit around and talk to front end developer Tim Dickens about the odd paths we take to get to becoming a developer. Additionally, we have another Mail Drop! That’s two weeks in a row. Followed up by Drupal News, Pro Project Pick, and finally, we unpack the Final Bell. And yes, I am fully aware that we totally ignored the episode title.

Pro Project Pick:
Scott McKinnis asks “Just wondering what kind of education I would need to be employable by a company like yours. I don't really have a formal education in anything, but I've learned a little about Drupal over the years and right now I'm working on getting a Linux Essentials cert and have set up a couple Drupal sites on servers that I maintain on Digital Ocean. Will Linux certs help me? I really like working with Drupal and I like Linux, but am I on the right track?“
