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!
I am providing these in both PDF as well as "raw" Keynote format, in the hopes that others can take this talk and re-give it at tons of Drupal events (Camps, user group meetings, etc.) around the world! There are pretty detailed presenter notes to help with this. If you find problems, please let me know and I'll correct them.
PDF file (if you want to read it; will be re-exported on occasion):
Keynote file (if you want to present it; always up-to-date version):
PPT file (if you want to present it, and are using PowerPoint or OpenOffice; will be re-exported on occasion):
Huge thanks to Kristof De Jaeger and Jen Lampton for their help in outlining and content for this presentation. And thanks to Dries, Larry, and Gábor for making nice imagery I could copy/paste. :) And thanks to the organizers of DrupalCamp Vancouver for making such a great event!
Shameless plug: Hey! Come to Port Moody on Thursday, June 7 and let's have us a Drupal meetup. ;) http://groups.drupal.org/node/233718
