Webchick's "plain Drupal English" Guide to the Remaining Drupal 8 Critical Issues: DrupalCon Bogotá Edition

DrupalCon Bogotá just finished up, and critical issue-wise we've managed to stay in the 50s for a few days (down from a high of 150 in the summer of 2013!), so now seems like as good a time as any to write down what's left to ship Drupal 8!

This post will attempt to document all of the remaining 55 criticals (as of this writing), and attempt to offer a somewhat "plain English" (or at least "Drupal English" ;)) description of each, loosely categorized into larger areas in which we could really use extra help. There are over 2,600 contributors to Drupal 8 at this time, please join us!

(Note: These descriptions might not be 100% accurate; this is my best approximation based on the issue summary and last few comments of each issue. If I got the description of your pet issue wrong, please update your issue summary. ;))

Step-by-step: Converting modules from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8

Fri, 02/08/2013 - 01:55 -- webchick

As Gábor pointed out, now's the time to help make Drupal 8 more unified and user/developer friendly. A great way to do that is try porting your modules, now, while there's still time to fix the APIs before code freeze.

Here's the video and slides from my Upgrading your modules to Drupal 8 talk at DrupalCon Sydney 2013, featuring the Pants module.

But wait, there's more! ;)

Greetings, Drupal Planet!

Here are the slides from my DrupalCamp Vancouver "hook_future_alter()" talk. This outlines the major changes currently in development for Drupal 8, how Drupal 8 will impact end users, site builders, designers, and developers, and how to jump in and help!

Notes from Drupal 8 status update talk

Fri, 10/28/2011 - 13:36 -- webchick

Here are some notes from the Drupal 8 status update talk that Dries and I gave today to the Acquia team, since this seemed like useful info for the community to know as well. :) It covers both process changes for addressing previous issues that arose in Drupal 7, as well as a status update on Drupal 8 progress to-date. This could be useful to folks who have been wondering where all of the various Drupal 8 status updates fit into the "bigger" picture.

Please comment here if I left anything out, or messed up anything.

A month (and a bit) in the Office of the CTO

Wed, 06/29/2011 - 00:05 -- webchick

Last month, I started my new job in Acquia's Office of the CTO. I posted my to-do list last month of a given week's worth of work, to try and provide some insight as to what I'm working on. Since that probably reads as chicken-scratch to you (my handwriting tends to be one-way encryption ;)), here are some of the highlights:
