You may have heard of a variety of Drupal 8 initiatives during the development cycle leading up to Drupal 8.0.0 being released in 2015. These were officially recognized efforts to get a variety of big changes into Drupal 8, and included projects such as configuration management, Views in core, and multilingual improvements. A lot of work from those initiatives is now part of Drupal 8. Not everything got in though, and as time moves on some priorities for new work will always shift.

If you're following along at home, you may have seen that we recently made the move to Pantheon hosting. Last week during our maintenance window, Joe and I worked through our migration checklist, and officially moved the site over to our new host. The process had a few hiccups, but we thought it would be interesting to take a look at what went into our migration process. Hopefully sharing what went into our planning process, as well as what is in our pipeline for improvements now that we're on Pantheon, will help you if you ever find...

This week we're adding five new tutorials to our Drupal 8 Migration Guide that walk through the process of creating a custom Drupal-to-Drupal migration, allowing you to fine-tune every aspect of the migration from a previous version of Drupal into Drupal 8.

DrupalCon is a great opportunity to learn all kinds of new skills and grow professionally. For the 3 days of the main conference in Dublin (September 27–29) there will be sessions on just about everything related to Drupal that you could want.

This is a great place for new folks to learn the ropes of our community and how to contribute back. What may be less talked about is the chance to be a mentor.

We’re happy to announce that we are moving the Drupalize.Me site to Pantheon hosting. We’ve partnered with Pantheon in the past to bring you a full series on using this great service.

Moving a site to new infrastructure is always a big task, so we’re going to share our process with you as we make the move.
