Drupal, Hypermedia and the Future of the Web

Drupal is used to build some of the biggest and best known sites on the web and thousands of developers are utilizing it to build nearly 10% of every site on the web. The latest version, Drupal 8, expected to be released before the end of the year, substantially rewrites entire sections, incorporating the Symfony2 framework to completely change how its used to build websites and web applications.

But how do you know if you're using Drupal in the *right* way? Drupal 8 represents the single biggest change in its history; what do you need to know to begin using it effectively?

In this keynote presentation, Forest will present a deeper explanation of the whys and and wherefores of the new hypermedia architectural patterns at the heart of Drupal, and a deep dive into what lies ahead for Drupal 8 in order to convey an understanding of how to use it in the right way, and how Drupal fits into a greater historical shift in the web and mobile technology, what the future of the web looks like, and how you can use Drupal to get there first.
