This session will provide a high-level overview of the most important things to know about Drupal 8, including information about the key initiatives: Configuration Management, HTML5, Layouts, Mobile, Multilingual, Views in Core, and Web Services.
As of July 1, we have now entered Drupal 8's polish phase -- the home stretch of Drupal 8 development where we will focus on fixing bugs and moving Drupal 8 toward the first release candidate later this year.
At this session you will find out what problems have been solved for end users and clients, site builders, designers and front-enders, and developers. You will also learn where you can go if you would like to get involved and help make Drupal 8 even better!
