Huge thanks for responding to our call for contributors posted at the beginning of the month. All must-have beta requirements have been completed, so, we've released Drupal 9.0.0-beta1! Drupal 8.9.0-beta1 will be released next week (the week of March 23).

The release of the first betas is a firm deadline for all feature and API additions. Even if an issue is pending in the Reviewed & Tested by the Community (RTBC) queue when the commit freeze for the beta begins, it will be committed to the next minor release only.

  • Developers and site owners can begin testing the betas after their release.

  • Sites must be on 8.8 or later to update to 9.0.0-beta1. Therefore, we will also provide bugfix releases of 8.8 and 8.7 that resolve known upgrade path criticals, so sites that have not been able to update to 8.8 can test the upgrade.

  • Once 8.9.0-beta1 is released, the 9.1.x branch of core will open for development. This branch is where feature and API additions should be made. All outstanding issues filed against 8.9.x will be automatically migrated to 9.1.x.

  • Alpha experimental modules have been removed from the 8.9.x and 9.0.x codebases (so their development will continue in 9.1.x only).

  • Additional fixes will be committed to 9.0.x under the beta allowed changes policy through the end of the beta phase on April 28.

  • The release candidate phase will begin the week of May 4th.

See the summarized key dates in the release cycle, allowed changes during the Drupal 8 and 9 release cycle, and Drupal 8 and 9 backwards compatibility and internal API policy for more information.

Drupal 9.0.0 and Drupal 8.9.0 are both scheduled to be released on June 3, 2020.

Bugfixes and security support of Drupal 8.8 and 8.7

Drupal 8.8 will receive additional bugfix releases through May 4, 2020, and it has security coverage through December 2, 2020. Drupal 8.7 has security coverage until the release of 8.9.0 on June 3.

This week is the first target release window for the Drupal 9 beta.

We’ve made significant progress on the beta requirements during the last couple of months thanks to the tremendous amount of work by the community. Based on the outstanding tasks in the meta issue, we are close to completing beta requirements, but not close enough to release it this week.

When will Drupal 9.0.0-beta1 be released?

Given how close we are to completing the beta requirements, we are considering releasing the beta in mid-March if the requirements are complete by March 13. If we do release the beta in 1-2 weeks, Drupal 9.0.0 will still be scheduled for release on June 3, 2020. We will make a final announcement by March 16 about whether there will be a June release.

If any must-have issues remain unresolved by March 13, we will move the beta target window to the first week of May, and Drupal 9.0.0 will be scheduled for August 3, 2020.

This does not affect the expected release date of Drupal 8.9.0 (scheduled for June 3, 2020) nor that of Drupal 9.1.0 (planned for December 2, 2020). The Drupal 8 and 7 end-of-life is also still November 2021.

We need your help to meet the beta deadline, whether it is March 13 or April 28! Drupal 9 readiness meetings are every Monday at 7pm UTC in the #d9readiness channel on https://drupal.org/slack. Help us with the issues below.

Current status and issues left for Drupal 9.0.0-beta1

Dependency updates

All PHP dependencies (Symfony, Laminas, Twig) have been updated to the versions we intend to use for Drupal 9.0.0, although we will continue to keep up to date with bugfix releases.

Nearly all JavaScript and CSS dependencies have been updated, with just two issues to go:
jQuery Cookie (needs review and testing from JavaScript developers!) and Normalize.css (RTBC and awaiting committer review).

Upgrade paths

In addition to deprecations, we are improving and simplifying in-place updates with update.php to ensure the Drupal 8 to 9 update is smooth and reliable. Four issues remain and could use additional help from experienced contributors:

We are also ensuring that all known critical Drupal 8 upgrade path bugs that may prevent updates from older Drupal 8 versions are fixed in 8.8 and 8.9. Only three remain. These technically difficult issues are critical for Drupal's data integrity:

Platform requirement changes

Drupal 9 has already raised the minimum PHP version to 7.3. We also want to increase MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite requirements. This includes:

  • MySQL, MariaDB, and Percona (required prior to beta1)
  • PostgreSQL (Beta deadline; help needed! If you use Postgres, document what versions are available from your hosting provider.)
  • SQLite (Might be completed during the beta phase)

Drupal 9 base theme API

We want to add an up-to-date Drupal 9 version of the 'Stable' base theme. This issue and the related issues to decouple core themes from Drupal 8 base themes could use review and feedback from theme contributors.

Once all the above issues are complete, Drupal 9 is beta-ready. That means that we will have completed all of the significant code changes we intend to make, and that it should be possible to test updates of real sites against it if contributed and custom code has been ported. Site owners can use the Upgrade Status module to check the Drupal 9 readiness of their modules and themes; see the guide on updating to Drupal 9 for more information.

Other issues to complete prior to final release of Drupal 9

There is a second category of issues that we want to complete before Drupal 9.0.0 is released. Since we have fixed release windows, these also need to be either complete or close to completion, especially for the first beta window, since this gives the shortest amount of time to finish them.

Complete migrations for multilingual content so that all Drupal 7 sites can migrate before Drupal 7 reaches EOL.

Drupal.org and Drupal core should be able to fully handle contributed projects that are compatible with both 8.x and 9.x and not assume core compatibility based on the version or branch name. This requirement spans multiple projects and areas including project listings, the Composer façade, update.xml from Drupal.org, and localization files. Most of the minimum required changes for Drupal core and Drupal.org are already complete; however, there remains one outstanding core regression related to module compatibility as well as a number of followup issues.

Finally, Drupal 9 currently relies on Node.js 8 for transpiling and linting frontend assets. This is core-developer-facing only so we may raise the Node.js requirement after beta.

Various media outlets are reporting that a large number of Drupal sites are still vulnerable to the recent highly critical core vulnerabilities SA-CORE-2018-002 and SA-CORE-2018-004.

Those reports are all based on the same source. The source investigated the contents of CHANGELOG.txt of a large number of sites and assumed all sites reporting a version lower than 7.58 to be vulnerable.

Checking the contents of CHANGELOG.txt is not a valid way to determine whether a site is vulnerable to any given attack vector. Patches distributed by the Drupal security team to fix the issues were widely used, but did not touch CHANGELOG.txt or any version strings defined elsewhere. There are also other mitigations that vendors have provided which would also not affect CHANGELOG.txt but would protect the site.

We believe the presented numbers to be inaccurate. We consider it to be misleading to draw conclusions from this sparse information. The Drupal project has a long history of a reliable coordinated disclosure security program. For the past 4 years, the Drupal Security Team has provided support to journalists covering our releases and policies and is available for further enquiries.

If you are a member of the press and want the Drupal Security Team to comment, please contact [email protected].

Would you guess that Drupal 8 is already one year old? One of my favorite changes with the Drupal 8.0.0 release was that we also chose to turn to scheduled releases (to happen twice a year) as well as semantic versioning (to allow us to make backwards compatible additions and improvements). That meant that we don't need to wait until Drupal 9 to come out with new exciting things, and indeed, there are various exciting initiatives going on in core right now. Maybe so many that they are hard to follow. So we decided to revive regular posts about core's progress so you can see what is going on and where you may be able to help. And this is not even all the things happening, just a sampling.

Default content

The latest incarnation of efforts to get default content into core was kicked off at DrupalCon Dublin. The plan is to create an experimental install profile that contains both a new front-end theme (a separate initiative see below) and example content. It was agreed in Dublin that the theme of the example content will follow the same ‘Farmers Market’ scenario as the Drupal user guide. This creates a lot of synergies and removes both continued argument over what the example content should contain and duplication of work involved in supporting more than one content scenario.

Join the ongoing work in this initiative on the weekly example content meetings happening on Google Hangouts on Air and join the #example-content channel in Drupal Slack. Lee Rowlands has created a sandbox project for the actual Drupal code. The content itself is being iterated on by Keith Jay and several members of his team.


The plan for media management was just announced last week. We'll have a sprint in Berlin December 12-16 to kickstart development on some key parts of the initiative. Looking for funding for future sprints and sprinters to join the efforts as well. Help with adding a base entity form implementation to support revisions and implementing the file field redesign with drag and drop support would be helpful immediately though.


The multilingual initiative works closely with the migration team recently. The Drupal 7 to 8 core content translation migration is close to being committed and language negotiation settings and language types migrations for both Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 are close to landing as well. Would love to involve more people in migrating i18n and Entity translation module data.

New core theme

At DrupalCon New Orleans we kicked off an idea of adding a new theme to Drupal. To address some of the biggest concerns people had over the time about adding themes in core, we decided to work closely with the Default Content initiative.

Currently, the idea issue is in discussion, and before starting to do any further work, we are making sure we are on the same page regarding the key questions.

We created a Slack channel which you can join if you want to help or if you just want to follow our progress. Get an invite at https://drupaltwig-slack.herokuapp.com/.


The PHPUnit initiative was born out of a Drupal 9 discussion what we need to get done before we will open a Drupal 9 Git branch. One goal is to modernize our automated testing system. We are currently using and maintaining a custom version of the Simpletest library which has served as well for many years. In parallel we adopted PHPUnit for our unit tests, but we realized that we can use PHPUnit as a general test runner for our functional tests as well. That means that we do not have to maintain as much test runner code ourselves as we do now.

The goal of the PHPUnit initiative is to move all our Simpletests to browser tests and in the end deprecate Simpletest in Drupal core. Another benefit of this initiative is testing real JavaScript interactions in our functional tests instead of fake AJAX requests performed currently in Simpletest.

You can help by converting AJAX tests to JavascriptTestBase for example. If you want to convert your test in your contrib / custom module, please read https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/phpunit/phpunit-browser-test-tutorial and help out on https://www.drupal.org/node/2794285 in case you run into problems. Please follow the PHPUnit initiative meta issue for status updates. Join us in IRC in #drupal-phpunit.


The workflow initiative was one of the first approved initiatives after 8.0.0. The initiative is looking to improve the experience for content authors by improving content workflow and implementing other common patterns that editors are expecting. The plan is split up into multiple phases and in Drupal 8.2 the workflow initiative introduced Content Moderation as an experimental module. In Drupal 8.3 the initiative is planning multiple improvements, including the introduction of Trash module and possibly also components of the Workspace module.
One of the blocking issues that the initiative need help with reviewing is the upgrade between revisionable and non-revisionable entity storage. Any help on this will be much appreciated.

Stay tuned for further updates in December!

Last week Dries Buytaert published our plan for media management in Drupal 8 which details at least the immediate plans. The inherent limitation of file based attachment/image management in core is it does not mix well with remote media (Facebook embeds, videos, Digital Asset Management, etc.) and there is no library of media to browse to reuse existing media on the site. Therefore our short term goal is to add a base to support a wide varierty of media as well as a media library and support for embedding such media in posts in general.

To support this plan, we host online meetings every Wednesday at 2pm GMT in #drupal-media on IRC, but without focused time on implementing these, we are unlikely to succeed before the feature deadline of Drupal 8.3 at the end of January 2017. Therefore we are planning the following sprints for this year.

Dec 12-16 sprint in Berlin at Hubert Burda Media

Hubert Burda Media (initiators of the Thunder distribution) is hosting us at Potsdamer Straße 7, 10785 Berlin for a sprint between December 12-16. Confirmed attendees include (in alphabetical order) Adam Globus-Hoenich (phenaproxima), Christian Fritsch (chr.fritsch), Dietmar Gigler (dietmarg), Gábor Hojtsy, Janez Urevc (slashrsm), Marcos Cano Miranda (marcoscano), Mladen Todorovic (mtodor) and Samuel Mortenson (samuel.mortenson). Additionally Daniel Wehner (dawehner) and Florian Weber (webflo) plan to attend part of the sprint.

We'll work on bringing media features to core (not on contributed modules). If you'd like to get involved, participation in person or remotely would be amazing. This single sprint will not be enough to complete our goals. We are looking to figure out what is still possible in January and need funding to make things happen. If you can sponsor future sprints, reach out to Janez Urevc. This current sprint is funded by Hubert Burda Media, MD Systems, Acquia and Reinblau.Huge thanks to them!

Nov 25 sprint at DrupalIronCamp

DrupalIronCamp is Prague is also hosting four days of sprints. Janez Urevc (slashrsm) plans to sprint on the details of the media plan on Friday, November 25th. There may be other media related activities at the sprints, connect with the sprinters.

Nov 30 - Dec 2 sprint at DrupalCamp Munich

Hubert Burda Media also hosts the sprints before DrupalCamp Munich (sprints between November 30 - December 2, DrupalCamp on December 3-4). Several developers from Hubert Burda Media will sprint on both the core media goals and contributed modules. Look for Christian Fritsch (chr.fritsch) and Mladen Todorovic (mtodor).

Proud to announce that Drupal was officially accepted to participate in Google's Code-In 2016 contest. More info @ https://codein.withgoogle.com/

At this point, Drupal needs mentors. Please contact me directly if interested in mentoring a few tasks or many tasks over next few months. We need all the help we can find. Tasks for GCI are meant to be easier for students ages 13-17. Amount of effort to mentor a few tasks is actually easy and enjoyable.

Not interested in mentoring, but have tasks for students? Do you want someone to write/test patches or create video tutorials for your module? Ping me for access to our task spreadsheet and add as many tasks as you want.

Chat with us in real time on IRC @ Freenode in #drupal-google

Maybe you have seen Dries Buytaert's DrupalCon keynote and are looking forward to all the goodies coming in future Drupal 8 versions. The truth is none of those things will happen without people who want to make them happen to solve their own challenges with implementing Drupal solutions. Are you implementing decoupled solutions and have issues you are working on? In the middle of building up a suite of integrated media solutions? These core team meetings are ideal to bring in these issues and discuss solutions and to be part of shaping up where Drupal 8 is heading. Read on for details. (Last updated Nov 8th 2016).

  1. The JSON API and GraphQL meeting is held every Monday at 2pm UTC in the #drupal-wscii IRC channel.
  2. There is a monthly meeting on all API first work (REST, Waterwheel, JSON API, GraphQL) every third Monday of the month at 11am UTC in Google Hangouts.
  3. The Panels ecosystem meeting is on every Tuesday at 10am UTC in the #drupal-scotch IRC channel.
  4. There are two usability meetings every week! One at 7pm UTC on Tuesday while the other is at 7am UTC on Wednesday. Pick the best for your timezone. The meetings are at https://drupal.slack.com/archives/ux, get an invite at http://drupalslack.herokuapp.com/
  5. There is a default content in core meeting every other week on Tuesdays at 9pm UTC, and at 3pm UTC on the opposite weeks. Pick the best for your timezone. The meetings are at https://drupal.slack.com/archives/example-content, get an invite at http://drupalslack.herokuapp.com/
  6. There is a media meeting every Wednesday at 2pm UTC, join in the #drupal-media IRC channel.
  7. The multilingual meetings are still going on for years at 4pm UTC on Wednesdays, join at #drupal-i18n in IRC.
  8. The workflow initiative meets every Thursday at noon UTC in #drupal-contribute on IRC.
  9. Wanna help with migrate? The team has Google Hangouts at Wed 1pm UTC or Thu 1am UTC on an alternating weekly schedule. The #drupal-migrate IRC channel is also used as a backchannel.
  10. Last but not least the new user facing core theme initiative also meets on an alternating weekly schedule at Thu 2pm UTC and Thu 9pm UTC respectively in https://drupaltwig.slack.com/archives/new-core-theme-design, get an invite at https://drupaltwig-slack.herokuapp.com/

Drupal 7 wouldn't be the same without Angie, David, and thousands of other contributors. I always admired his reviews and discussions in issue queues. It's good to hear we will see him more on D8 now.

I'm not sure if it is appropriate to suggest someone without asking them first, but I think Nate "quicksketch" Haug would be an excellent maintainer.

mgifford's picture

Thanks @David Rothstein for all of your work! Really appreciate the time you've put into maintaining this. Hard to believe that we're really just at the half-way point for Drupal 7. As a community we're going to be supporting it for the next 3-4 years, right?

I do hope someone as qualified and personable as Nate comes along. I think he'd be great in that he has the expertise, humility, dedication and humour that I think is useful to move along issues in Core.

That said, I think @quicksketch has other plans. :)

David_Rothstein's picture

Thank you!

Yeah, I agree, @quicksketch would certainly be a good choice, but he's probably a bit too busy with Backdrop :)

dobe's picture

Hello Drupal Community,

First off I want to thank David that is quite the accomplishment to help maintain this project for 4 years strong. I would guess the next maintainer will likely be the person that maintains this through till the end of Drupal 7.

I have been using, contributing to issues, modules, themes and more for nearly 10 years.

I have experience building "real world" sites/platforms on Drupal 7, particularly high-performance sites (sites using varnish, memcache or wincache), sites with millions of records, and other edge cases.

I am detail orientated, understanding much of Drupal core.

I am always working on this but I do have the ability to communicate calmly and respectfully when critiquing code. Sometimes we have to sit back and realize there are real people on the other side of these screens.

I have knowledge of Git (mercurial, svn) and could become more knowledgeable of the Drupal.org process.

I am the only Drupal developer at my Job (work with many other developers). Looking for more ways to engage within the community. For the most part I am in charge of my own destiny at my job and would be able to schedule time to support whatever is needed of me.

Foremost I have yet to find a technical problem that I am unable to overcome. I am self motivated and constantly look for ways to improve (everything can be improved).

I am not saying I am a silver bullet for this position. I am here at DrupalCon NOLA with my family working towards meeting more people within the community. Knowing that this is D7 maintainer and the future is D8. I am not interested in being stranded on the island, I am one that is willing to put forth the effort, time and hopefully courageous enough to help everyone get off safely.

Last but not least. I am crazy enough to post it here publicly. Dries, webchick, David willing to interview with anyone that needs to find out if I am a good fit. If not, I understand and look forward to contributing back anyways!

Have a great REST of life D7... lol.

I am interested. I would like to be a maintainer. Please consider me.

Although DrupalCampNYC is an unconference, it is helpful to know in advance that we have people willing to present content! I'm coordinating pre-commitments for D8 Development content. If you would be willing to come prepared to present on a D8 Development topic, it will make the organizing time run more smoothly if you would be willing to give me topics in advance. Thanks!

I'm not getting that error, but probably some time ago I told my browser to "connect anyway". We should bring that to the attention of the infra team.

Connected anyway, recklessly ignoring the warning. After doing so, Chrome did not repeat the message when revisiting the page.

jhodgdon's picture

Ah thanks! I will fix the URL links in this post and on the User Guide project page.

jhodgdon's picture

Actually that URL gives me a 403/forbidden error....

jhodgdon's picture

I got clarification from basic -- that new URL is not valid actually. But we will probably migrate the site over to the new URL in the next day or two.

joebachana's picture

I'll help in the coming weeks during the holidays. Also we have the NYCDrupalCamp on Feb. 27th where we'll be doing some sprint work so if this is still (gulp) getting worked on by that time we'll enlist people in advance to work on the guide then.

It's definitely working for me... sorry it is not working for you, but maybe someone else will confirm working or not working, and if it's not working for a bunch of people we can try to do something about it? Hmmm...

cleverington's picture

krishnan.n (I love your login name):

I tested on updated versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and IE Edge via Windows 10. Out of interest, I tried it via Chrome-by-phone-Android too.

Try clearing your cache and retrying, there might be cached information that is disrupting your access to the server. If you killed the login-box by accident via the Esc key, it might have saved your 'decision' (depending on the browser).


The man of many hats.

Faltando un mes para el camp, hay más de 80 personas registradas, de distintos lugares de Latinoamérica.

Es importante que formalicen la inscripción (los que no lo han hecho) para que reserven su lugar, dado que los cupos son limitados

Esperamos recibir más postulaciones a charlas, particularmente de nuestros compatriotas chilenos, pues la mayor parte de las charlas son de los invitados extranjeros

Recuerden al enviar su charla, rellenar los datos de su Bio y ser descriptivos con el temario de su charla

Nos vemos en diciembre!!!

Hola Seba!

El plazo es hasta este domingo 15 de noviembre.
Si tienes pensado postular una charla o un taller, es importante que lo hagas esta semana.

Sería súper bueno que pudieras postular una, dado tu conocimiento específico del uso de Drupal en temas científicos.

nos vemos!

Entonces la enviaré más tardar el miércoles. Inicialmente tenía solo pensado sobre la generación de contenidos, pero con esto que me propones me da más libertad

Que buena noticia que se concrete este sueño de la comunidad Drupal de Chile. Además, es un orgullo poder contar con la presencia de drupaleros de varios países de latinoamerica.

Aprovecho de comentar que me inscribí en el evento, pero no he podido hacer el pago. ¿Con el registro basta para formalizar la inscripción? ¿Existe alguna alternativa además del sitio web para hacer el pago en línea, por ejemplo una cuenta corriente para depositar? Les agradecería el link o una ayuda para esto.

Hi there!

Thank you for that information. It seems that I have a huge chance to be in Chile during 2nd and 3rd week of December and it's a great opportunity to join that event.

I wonder: is there any webpage with already accepted speakers (with topics) and free slots? I will be sure about my participation on the very last moment and need that info for proper flights ordering...

Thanks in advance!

(Stretching the definition of "core" a bit here, but this is important to Drupal 8, so hopefully this is ok. :))

Now that Drupal 8.0.0 is nearing its final release, the next task in front of the Drupal community is porting ALL the contributed projects! Luckily, this effort is very much underway, but the faster the majority of big modules are at least usable (ideally with stable releases), the faster Drupal 8 adoption will take off.

After talking to numerous project maintainers, including those with multiple Drupal 8 core commits, it seems like many would find value in having dedicated times during which to collaborate with other people porting projects to D8, get questions answered, get advice on sticky problems, and figure out where best to help.

If you'd like to help mentor these sorts of office hours, please add your name to the issue summary at http://www.drupal.org/node/2612094 and fill in the Doodle.

Hello there!

I believe you are applying as a student? The application for GCI 2015 is not open for students yet, it's still in organizational application phase (you can see the full timeline here). Thanks for your interest in Drupal though! In the meanwhile you can see past years tasks :)

Hello, I write little English, I did not understand everything.
This article begins:
"Are you interested in contributing to Drupal, but do not have the coding skills or experience necessary? Good news, now you have an awesome opportunity to contribute!"

But then it says that it is only for students 13 to 17 years? It is only for students? There is a way to participate even if you are older than age? I am 22 years old.

Slurpee's picture

Hello Neomi. The contest is for students ages 13-17, but we need experienced mentors able to help the students. Join us in #drupal-google on IRC when you have some time or contact me directly if interested.

Any mentors interested participating? Please add your name to our list @ https://goo.gl/nTPfKU - we're hoping to add a few more mentors to our list to finalize our application tomorrow. Tell your friends :)

Dries Buytaert, the Drupal project lead, will facilitate a Drupal 8 retrospective discussion at DrupalCon Barcelona.

After more than four years of development, Drupal 8 is quickly approaching its first release candidate. This will be a landmark release with myriad new features and improvements. In addition to many technical changes, we innovated on how we collaborate on the Drupal project itself as well as on drupal.org. We involved more than three times the contributors of Drupal 7. Now it's time to take stock of the cycle, of where we've been and how it went, so we can keep improving. We'd like your input on the following:

  1. What worked well? What were the highlights of the Drupal 8 cycle?
  2. What didn't work well? What are lessons we've learned for upcoming releases or for the community as a whole?
  3. What concrete improvements can we make for future releases (both minor and major)? We welcome suggestions around teams, tools, or processes.

Please submit your answers online. Dries will gather the community's responses and use them as the basis for the open discussion at DrupalCon Barcelona.

Event type: 

Drupalcamp or Regional Summit


We're happy to announce that registration for Drupal Camp Ohio 2015, our 5th edition, is now open at http://drupalcampohio.org/drupalcamp-ohio-2015.

Drupal Camp Ohio is taking place on October 23rd and 24th. We are changing our format from two days of sessions. The first day will once again be at the Ohio State University 4H center for a day filled with Drupal talks, trainings and more. The second day of code sprinting at a location tbd. The change is largely due to some budget whoas this year and are cutting back on our primary expences (location and food). We are looking forward to have our very first Drupal Camp Ohio code sprint day on Saturday, October 24th at a location tbd. This is the reason we have knocked the price back down to $30 this year.

Another change in format this year, will be the "keynote" speaker(s). We've decided to forgo the keynote talk in lieu of hearing from the most import members of the community, you! We going to host a round of Ignite talks (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignite_(event)) in lieu of the traditional keynote talk. This is to give you an opportuity to showcase: your work, new Drupal related ideas you have, community initiatives, your favorite Drupal site. There will be more to come on these but the rules are: the topic needs to be relevant (we have a pretty open definition of relevant ;)), the talk 5 minutes long with 20 slides. Lastly, we will force the slides to rotate automatically every 15 seconds. If you have never participated in an Ignite talk it's a lot of fun for both the presenters and the audience.

It's time to propose a session. Session proposals are also open, propose a talk for Friday here http://drupalcampohio.org/program/sessions/proposed. Some thoughts on sessions you could propose:

Drupal 8, with Drupal 8 down to a dozen blockers we'll be looking for sessions about D8
Headless Drupal
Backdrop, Drupal Camp Ohio is a Backdrop friendly event
Case Studies, talks on how do you use Drupal every day
Mobile development, developing for Drupal in a mobile world
Drupal and teams development workflows, etc...

We still need sponsorship support! The main reason we had to move to one day for this year is the due to changes in the budgets at The Ohio State University that left them unable to continue to underwrite the event. We were able to scramble and make it work but it left us in a less than ideal situation. We have been coming togther for 5 years now and have a strong community what will continue to grow and thrive for years to come but it's the support of sponsors that pays for 75% of this event. Without those sponsorships we would likely have a camp but it would not be the event we have come to expect. If you work somewhere that uses Drupal, encourage your leadership to sponsor, if you happen to have $500 laying around and want to sponsor well....

Can't wait to see everyone in October, and get those session proposals in.

See you in October
- Drupal Camp Ohio Team

Great work, Micky - having him address the conference was very special, possibly the best of the speakers I've heard at any Drupal conference.

stevepurkiss's picture

Thanks Micky, RMS speaking at a Drupal event, and in the UN building! I'm gutted I couldn't attend :(

It was a pleasure meeting you at the coop BoF and to find out more about the good work you're doing over there, I learned a lot & look forward to our cooperation in the future!

lujekalek's picture

It was very nice meeteing, now i know more than early !

mike stewart's picture

...I encourage us all to think deeply about the tools we use and our personal freedoms.

... let's free our future with free software as the foundation.

I can only hope our community takes it to heart. The two quotes above have huge implications.

Start now. Adopt the use of other open source tools for your toolbox, not just Drupal. Plan how you can quit using proprietary hardware (Apple, I'm looking at you).

Were any of the sessions recorded?

There is a user login on the home page http://www.drupalcamp.nyc/

I tried to log in, but it seems I don't have an account there; and I am unable to register an account.

Perhaps that login is for site admins only, in that case UX best practice is to not display the form on public pages, admins can go to /user to log in.

joebachana's picture

Good point, and blame me since I did that for my own convenience. I tucked the login beneath the fold since didn't expect anyone to nitpick ;-) In any event, I disabled the form from the page.

Obviously we didn't spare much expense putting the site together (not). Hopefully you'll attend this Sunday, and perhaps in future camps you will be able to volunteer to help us build more impressive camp home sites built with D8.

See you there?

I'd be happy to do some volunteer work at Dev Day. I'm registered for the event. You can assign me almost anything as long as I can attend a few sessions. DWyeth

joebachana's picture

Thanks for offering to volunteer! Yes, we need help, and I think you and I have connected by email so we'll see you Sunday first thing for setup.

Dear NYC Camp,

I registered for the Keynote, Beginning Drupal Site Building, Drupal for Project Managers and the Digital Publishing and Media Summit, but when I viewed my account on nyccamp.org, there are no associated tickets or orders.

First, have other registrants noted this as a defect in the system? Second, can you confirm that I've actually been registered for these four sessions?

Many thanks,
Gwynn Turner

Bill Choy's picture

The naming of two camps in NYC can be a little confusing. Registration and organization for each are completely separate.

The "Drupal Dev Day NYC 2015!" .. WAS held in April.

The "NYC Camp 2015!" will be held in July, see https://groups.drupal.org/node/433258.

Thanks for the feedback. As website developer, we should know better. Having this expired event still sitting on the front page of GDO, is definite confusing our guest.

Hi, any information about a Drupalcamp in France? I searched but I have found nothing about it. The last 2 years, events have taken place at this time of the year, May and June, but it may have been replaced by the Drupal Developer Days that I missed in April.

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to remind everyone that sponsorships for the Johannesburg DrupalCamp 2015 are open right now.

E-mail [email protected] for the bank account details if you want to sponsor.

We have one gold, three silver and six individual sponsors so far and there's a few more in the works: http://dasa.org.za/drupalcamp-johannesburg.html

Thanks you to our sponsors thus far:

  • Amazee Labs
  • Burtronix
  • Ingen Media
  • Telamenta

And individuals thus far:

  • Riaan Burger
  • Lauro Scott-Parkin
  • Adam Dunn
  • Melissa de Gouveia
  • Daniel Bornman
  • Renate Ehlers

The earlier one sponsors, the more exposure time there is for the logos and association.

Our first focus on work was on design, that's likely abating towards the end of this week, right now it's on sponsors and production (prints), then speakers and then we'll put in some work that's already being actioned on now to some degree, on attendance.

Kind regards,

Riaan Burger's picture

Hello Everyone,

Just a note that I contacted Bob Kepford (knew him from before with the TopDrops site work) and he added our camp to the most recent release of The Weekly Drop:


E-mailed Drupal news, tutorials, and articles once a week without hours of browsing.

Kind regards,

Riaan Burger's picture

Hello Everyone,

It's very early times yet, but so we have loads of places open for attendance. RSVP on meetup.com:


Places for attendance: 8 of 220 seats booked, 112 of 220 seats available. You can RSVP with up to 2 guests and if the event is fully booked, you can enter an automatic waiting list. If you booked and won't come, please change your RSVP to make space available for people in the waiting list.

Sponsorship is doing very well, we have 1 of 5 gold sponsorships available, 4 of 5 available and we have 3 of 5 silver sponsorships available, 2 of 5 available. There is no limit on individual sponsorships at just R 150, we already have 7 of them.

Thank you to our sponsors thus far: http://dasa.org.za/drupalcamp-johannesburg.html

Lastly, we're also in early days for future DrupalCamps, but DrupalCamp Cape Town, planned for around September, an as yet not confirmed larger conference in October at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg and DrupalCamp Pretoria planned for around March next year entered our monthly DASA meetings agenda this past Wednesday. Awesome days ahead for Drupal in South Africa!

Kind regards,

odenmc's picture

Thanks for the info, I'll have to watch!

Riaan Burger's picture

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to everyone putting in so much work for this camp!

We have been quiet mostly because we are all working very hard, but you can expect more news in this final week as everything comes together and is finalised.

We are just awaiting a few more submissions of information by our sponsors and speakers and a final decision on catering options.

The camp is about 13% fully booked so far, so please make sure to sign up on meetup.com so that we can plan catering for everyone. We plan a bit of an attendance drive this coming week.

Thank you to our sponsors, http://dasa.org.za/drupalcamp-johannesburg.html - we will present them here on GDoSA in the coming week too.

Our future events:

  • If you would like to help with the DrupalCamp Cape Town 2015 in September, please contact Jason.
  • If you would like to help at the Drupal stand at My World of Tomorrow in the Sandton Convention Center in September, please contact Adam.
  • If you would like to help with DrupalCamp Pretoria 2016 in March (2016), please contact Renate.

how can i participate this camp?
i'm from Egypt? and what about fees?

Riaan Burger's picture

Hello Nourhan,

There's no cover charge and the event is catered too. It's free. Simply come through tomorrow morning.

Hope to see you there.


wedding-dj's picture

Are you planning on doing this again? I have family in the area.

Riaan Burger's picture

We have two events lined up:

DrupalCamp Cape Town 2015 will be on Friday the 4th of September 2015. We're very close to announcements and the micro-site for it is expected to go live this week.

We'll also have a Drupal presence at the MyWorld of Tomorrow, 22-24 October 2015 at the Sandton Convention Center.

No exact plans are set yet for next year, but we have formal metrics adopted by the governing board that will track our success as DASA and several of them touch on the events we organise and how successful they are. Early talk is of a Gauteng-based DrupalCamp, this time mid-week, like the Cape Town one, to be held as a DrupalCamp Pretoria 2015 and then of course a Cape Town one again.

We should, by then, also have the Pretoria and Durban meet-ups up and running and we'll have to see what adoption looks like there to see if a camp in Durban may be viable.

There is a lot of money in it, and the best part is that you don’t need any qualifications, prior experience or specialised skills. All you need is a few spare hours per day, a computer with an internet connection.click here if u want globalwebworkers.com

Buying an essay from online is very difficult process due to having some scamming service in the online. So first of all we have to understand the service properly for ordering our essay in the online service. The education essay writing task is bit difficult to complete from the students side. Even the evaluation is very different in the academics. The essay writing evaluation on academy must be well organized, and student’s thoughts must circulation rationally from one point to the next. So students should be mentioned properly according to their self-discipline in writing. So these things should be followed by the service writers. Present language and opinions on the subject in an impartial and extensive way. Writing a self essay requires the huge amount of knowledge and skill sets. The top and best essay writing service will always keep good format and high-quality essay for the students. Therefore you can get a tension free essay from this best online writing service. Their professional writers are good enough to complete any type of educational essay for students. So struggling students can make use of this service for completing their academical essay writing tasks. This website is giving quality essay in a low cost.
