Drupal Auto Updater - TagTeamTalk #003
Automatic updates are coming to Drupal at the end of October! Long one of the most commonly requested features in the Drupal community, Drupal 7 and D8 will soon have an automatic updater that will allow Drupal installations to stay up-to-date more easily. How does Drupal's new auto updater work, and what do you need to know about it? In this Tag1 Team Talk, we dive into not only Drupal's new automatic updates feature itself but also its architecture, components, and roadmap, as well as why it's such an important part of Drupal's Core Strategic Initiatives.
Join moderator Preston So (Contributing Editor, Tag1 Consulting) and guests Lucas Hedding (Senior Architect and Data and Application Migration Expert, Tag1), Tim Lehnen (CTO, Drupal Association), Fabian Franz (Senior Technical Architect and Performance Lead, Tag1), and Michael Meyers (Managing Director, Tag1) for a deep dive into the nuts and bolts of Drupal's groundbreaking automatic updates feature, directly from the module maintainer, and the strategic initiative sponsors including the Drupal Association, MTech, Tag1, and the European Commission.
