Drupal 8 Initiatives

1 Slot - 45 min

What drives the development of Drupal 8 core and contributed modules? It's thousands of contributors all over the world. Many work in their free time, many work paid by their employees - all together driving the Drupal project forward via open source contribution.

With Drupal 8, so called initiatives were founded to focus development of Drupal in areas such as Configuration Management (CMI)Layouts (SCOTCH)Multilingual (D8MI)Migrate or Views in Drupal Core (VDC). Recently, new initiatives have been formed around topics like Content WorkflowAPI-first or creating a new core theme.

Josef Dabernig
Josef aka dasjo started using Drupal 5 as a site builder in 2007. When doing his social service abroad in Nicaragua, he first got involved with the international community and since then is a continuous contributor to the project.

His contributed modules include often needed helpers like Facet API Pretty Paths or his diploma thesis Geocluster for putting millions of items on a map. What Josef most enjoys, is connecting with open minds from all around the Drupal community. From training Drupal across Central America to organising local Drupal events in Europe.

After a stint at Drupal agencies in Vienna he was brave enough to embark to Switzerland and works now for Amazee Labs.
