The Drupal media sprint is aimed at improving the media management contrib solutions for Drupal 8, and ideally laying the tracks for same to eventually be incorporated into Drupal core (perhaps for Drupal 8.1 or 9). Effort will involve coding and development aimed at implementing the roadmap that we created in 2014 for media in Drupal 8. The team will be sprinting in honor and memory of Aaron Winborn.
This sprint will be bringing together some of the brightest minds and leading contributors to media in Drupal, hopefully including including much of the Drupal Media initiative team. This sprint is part of a long term multi-year NYC initiative where we are trying to build momentum around improving media handling in Drupal. As such, we'll be working to build momentum on the sprints that we held at NYC Camp in 2014, as well as follow-up events at DrupalCon Austin, DrupalCon Amsterdam, and BADCamp.
The team will also be sprinting in honor and memory of Aaron Winborn who recently passed away after a brave fight against ALS, and we will be continuing to work on making Media handling in Drupal 8 a better experience that was aligned with his vision for what's possible in Drupal.
Registration on NYC Camp webpage is desired for all attendees.
