Now that we are done with the pre-note business, let’s move on to the the keynote by Dries. Or as it is more popularly known, the DriesNote.
As always, it was a great keynote as Dries focussed on the following topics:
Market Perspective: There are many question when it comes to Drupal upgradation from D 1.0 to D 8.1:
- What is next for Drupal?
- Where can I contribute?
- How will Drupal remain relevant?
In an effort to answer all this, Dries talked about the reinvention that happens with every new Drupal release with respect to the customer experience, editorial experience and the developer experience.
Proposed Initiatives: At this stage, he also mentioned how the Drupal community is focused on initiatives by clearly defining the goals and roadmaps for all our proposed, planned and active initiatives with respect to the customer, developer and editorial experience.
But nothing emphasizes the immense possibilities as hearing Dries speak with his usual passion. And if you missed DrupalCon NOLA, catch the DriesNote right here:
There is a lot in store with Drupal 8 and the DriesNote ended with a massive call to action for customers, Drupal shops, managers, architects and developers to start adopting and contributing to it any way they can.
Be sure to watch this space for the most fun bits of DrupalCon NOLA; the code sprints, parties and trivia nights.
