Thijs Feryn has posted the latest episode in his series of video interviews with members of the PHP community he's caught up with at conferences. In his latest show he talks with Larry Garfield, one of the more well-known members in the Drupal community about the latest milestone in Drupal, the release of Drupal 8.
Today, November 19th 2015, marks the release date of Drupal 8. To celebrate this release, I decided to publish my interview with Larry Garfield today.
Larry is a key member of the Drupal community and a core contributor to the project. Throughout the conversation, Larry tells us the origin story of Drupal 8 and how the technical challenges lead to the adoption of technology from the broader PHP community such as Composer, Twig and a set of Symfony Components.
I hope you like the interview, it gives a nice behind the scenes look at the history of Drupal 8 and how Drupal reached out to the PHP community to create a more modern code base.
