New Drupal 8 Ideas in Dries' Dublin Keynote

DrupalCon Dublin Keynote

This week is DrupalCon Dublin. And as always, Dries gave the keynote address on the first morning of the event.

This year’s keynote was broken into two sections: “Drupal 8 Update” and “The Why”.

In “Drupal 8 Update”, Dries talks about the technical side of Drupal. From minute 27 to minute 42, Dries talks about what’s new in Drupal 8.2, which arrives on October 5th. We’ve covered those new features in previous posts. Then, from minute 42 to 48, Dries discusses features may arrive in future Drupal versions. If you’re short on time, watch those 6 minutes. Scroll down in this post, and we’ll cover those 6 minutes in detail.

In “The Why”, starting at minute 40, there’s a much broader focus on the larger purpose of Drupal. This section of personal anecdotes and stories of Drupal in action.
