  10. 10. Releasing Drupal 8 Beta
  11. 11. What does it take to release beta? 24h code freeze - first try from Sunday midnight Monday was beta testing day - we found 4 beta-blockers People worked like crazy Last beta-blocker was solved during Driesnote! 24h code freeze - and Drupal 8 beta was out finally!
  12. 12. What does beta phase mean? Time to port contribs to Drupal 8 Getting things into core is harder Time to test & give feedback!
  13. 13. When it will be released?
  14. 14. After all critical issues have been solved we relase RC1 If no new criticals have been discovered Drupal 8 will be released
  15. 15. 200 beta-blockers took 9 months 125 critical issues left with same speed ~7 months for RC1 Never ever base your business on any given Drupal 8 date!

  18. 18. Keep in mind: Big contribs might not be ready yet Theme layer is still under heavy development
  19. 19. Funding Drupal Core development Developing Drupal Core needs money
  20. 20. Problem? People mostly work in their free time - and everyone benefits Developing Drupal Core takes lot of effort
  21. 21. Solution! Encourage businesses to "fund" working on core
  22. 22. Why? Move Drupal faster further - everyone benefits! Would remove unnecessary burn out from core developers
