Dropcast Episode 30: Penguins!

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.
