This weakend, from Friday 11-27 until Saturday 11-28, we were on DrupalCon in Vienna. It`s purpouse is to share knowledge an create friendships in Drupal community worldwide.
In course of two days of lectures we learned lot interesting. This year the main theme was new version of Drupal, in fact the eighth, whitch stabil vesrion got currently official release and is prepared for using. This brings in many changes and adjustments and as far as I can judge all are for better. Meny of modules created for Drupal 7 are not yet prepared for new version, but many functions are implemented in core. I`m already looking forward to build new sites in this system.
For me personaly most useful were lectures about multilingual support in new system - in original Drupal 77 was always pain to create multilingual site. Besidees native support of multilinguality Drupal 8 simplyfies tranlation updates and enables to "translate" into english - changing oroginal names and desriptions.
We returned to the Bratislava at suterdays evening full of materials to contemplate.
