After over four years of hard work, the Drupal community was proud to announce the release of the first stable version of Drupal 8 at over two hundred release parties around the world. It's a really exciting time for everyone involved with the project, and followers of our blog will know how much we love the new features. We had a great time at the London release party last night (19th November 2015) meeting Drupal users old and new.
This Wednesday (28th October 2015) saw DrupalCambs' Drupal 8 release session, featuring three talks about the new version of the software. The session was very well attended, with people from a range of technical backgrounds and all levels of Drupal experience present.
I've been working as a web developer, and more specifically a Drupal developer, for just over six months now. Last weekend I went to my first large Drupal event, Drupal Camp Brighton. It was pretty cool.
I'm not about to pretend I understood everything that was being talked about, or even 50% of it probably. Some of it seemed to be seriously cutting edge stuff. Nonetheless, I learnt loads about Drupal and how other people develop and approach problems, which I hadn't really had a lot of exposure to previously.
