DrupalCon North America 2021 review; Contrib Half Hour, 2020-04-22
A discussion of the news from DrupalCon North America 2021.
Long time attendee of CHH, AmyJune Hineline is this years winner of the 2021 Aaron Winborn Award! Congrats AmyJune!
The drupal Diversity & Inclusion group is running an event this summer:
The DriesNote is available to watch online:
Some highlights include:
* Dries' proposal for a new project/module browser in core.
* Plans to move more of drupal.org's functionality to just use Gitlab.
* Drupal 10 is coming in 2022.
* Drupal 7 will be supported through November 2022.
* The Hidden Histories panel was a) really late in the day for folks not in the Western hemisphere, b) totally worth staying up late for. Unfortunately it was not recorded, you just had to be there.
* AmyJune really appreciated the organization tool used for contribution sprints.
* Bob Snodgrass enjoyed the date-time BOF and the related slack channel for good discussions about dealing with complex data.
The Mediacurrent Contrib Half-Hour is a weekly meeting from Mediacurrent to support the Drupal community. Each week we discuss a topic related to working within the Drupal community and the tools available to us.
Full schedule is posted on our project page: https://www.drupal.org/project/contrib_half_hour
