Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire, open source strategist, Drupal evangelist, Acquia Manager of Community Affairs. A longstanding passion for the Drupal project and its community has led to him being active at the intersection between open source software, business, and culture. Increasingly in demand as a speaker, he is regularly featured at events around the world, talking about open source, digital disruption, Drupal and more. This helps satisfy his inner diva, which he also feeds with performances as a storyteller and musician.
I've had the pleasure of talking with a lot of people involved in designing and implementing Drupal 8 in recent months. In this session, we'll take a look some of the good stuff you can expect in D8 (pronounced "date"). We'll take a broad, not deeply technical, look at what's coming in Drupal 8 for:
- clients and end users
- site builders
- themers and designers
I am really excited about Drupal and am happy to share that excitement with you!
