Talking Drupal
Talking Drupal is a weekly chat about web design and development by a group a guys with one thing in common, we love Drupal. With hosts Stephen Cross, John Picozzi and Nic Laflin.

Webform was one of those modules that seemed abandoned on Drupal 7 until Jacob Rockowitz stepped in. Since then webform has not stopped evolving. Jacob joins us to talk about the most recent enhancements.
