Everyone is excited for the launch of Drupal 8!
During this session I'll introduce you to all of the major advances that impact sitebuilders and end-users in Drupal 8.
I'll cover the user-friendly features including the mobile-friendly admin interface and the in-place WYSIWYG editor, plus some of the lesser known updates you'll need to know about before you decide to jump in!
