Musical CMS: How Symfony is coming to Drupal

Presented by

Track: 
Coding and Development

Drupal 8 is shaping up to be a major change in the Drupal project.  The core page handling is being replaced by components from the Symfony2 framework.  Web services will be foremost, not an after-thought.  Panels will be deprecated in favor of core.  Object-oriented code will be everywhere.  What??? O_o

This session will cover what's going on in Drupal 8 development.  We'll cover how Symfony2 fits into the picture, how Drupal will (and will not) change as a result, and why this is all going to make your life so much easier in the future.  We'll also talk about the Drupal 8 roadmap, where we are on it, and how you can help move it along faster.  (Because, really, we need to move faster.)

If you want to help push Drupal 8 forward even more, come to the sprint on Sunday and let's see what we can get done.
