Have you been thinking about upgrading to EE2? Still unsure? If so, don't miss the newest episode of the EE Podcast!

For episode 58, our friend Ryan Masuga joins us once again! This time, Ryan fills us in on the upgrade process from ExpressionEngine version 1 to version 2.

Episode #58

In EE1 to EE2 with Ryan Masuga, Lea and I get the scoop from Ryan about his experience upgrading Devot:ee to EE2. Ryan explained that it was a lengthy (and, at times, frustrating) process to upgrade, at least in terms of all the little details.

At the same time, though, Ryan commented that it was a worthwhile upgrade. Without moving to the latest version, Devot:ee wouldn't be able to utilize some new functionality or powerful add-ons.

Lea and I also talked about our own experiences moving from version 1 to 2. For me, I've had just one upgrade … for this very blog, in fact. And it was simple and straightforward for me. Lea, on the other hand, decided to do a clean install of EE2 and import the data, rather that do a strict upgrade.

We discuss all of these upgrade options, the "gotchas" and more. Have a listen yourself.

Stay Tuned!

Our next episode will be the last for 2011, so be sure to tune in! For episode #59, Lea and I will fulfill the end–of–year cliché and do a "Year in Review".

Be sure to check out our schedule for 2012! We've got great topics lined up.

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
