On the 19th November 2015 a new version of the Drupal content management system (CMS) will be released - Drupal 8.
This new version has been over four years in development and has seen contributions from over three thousand people. It contains well over 200 new features, uses object orientated code and is probably the most significant release to date.
There will be over 200 release parties around the world on the 19th; a series of events that will bring the Drupal community together to mark this new release and discuss the opportunities and implications of the most powerful versuin of Drupal yet. See a map of all of the event - http://www.drupical.com/
Drupal Somerset (@drupalsomerset) is planning on holding it's own release party in Glastonbury to join in this global celebration.
If you are in the area and would like to attend then let us know @drupalsomerset on twitter or contact us through this website's contact form.
Indigo-herbs has kindly offered to host the event at their new development offices in Glastonbury:
Indigo Herbs Unit 8 Adlams Central Park Wirrall Park Road GLASTONBURY BA6 9XE
The plan is to meet at 19:00. There will be refreshments and the opportunity for a range of discussions around the following topics.
What’s new in D8
Getting ready for Drupal 8
Trying Drupal 8 out: Getting Drupal 8 set up on a VM
When should I think about using D8 in my new projects
These won't be formal presentations - but more an opportunity to discuss these topics with a range of people; of which some have already used Drupal 8 and others who have not yet had the chance.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
