(rescheduled from March)
For the April Meetup, we're all about the Drupal 8.
With Drupal 8 in beta and approaching Release Candidate (RC) status, it's time to start learning what's new & improved, and when you can realistically start thinking about building a real site with it.
Brent Bice will discuss where Drupal 8 is headed and conversations about Drupal 8's future with Acquia Lift (https://www.acquia.com/products-services/website-personalization) developers and product managers.
Brandon Williams from the Austin Drupal Users Group will be joining us to offer his thoughts on what has changed for contrib developers. In particular, he will focus on the API changes in Drupal 8 – what has changed and what has not. Brandon will briefly touch upon the new components in Drupal 8 when necessary to understand the contrib space.
We will also look at:
• what's new, different, better, worse in Drupal 8
• step-by-step building out a real site with the current Drupal 8 Beta
We will be back at the Addison TreeHouse (http://www.addisontreehouse.com/) - thanks for their continuing generosity. Look for a green sign for Dovie's restaurant on the west side of Midway and turn in there, drive to the back left and look for building 14681. Enter and go up the stairs. We'll be in the Treehouse Room.
The North Texas Drupal Users Group is organized by FireRoad Digital (http://fireroaddigital.com).
