What's New in Drupal 8: Mobile and Responsive Features

Topic

Drupal 8 is now a friend of mobile—mobile users, mobile developers, and even mobile site administrators. In this presentation, we'll look at the variety of mobile-friendly features added to Drupal 8 in the areas of site administration, site building, and module development.

"Mobile" means different things to different folks. For a content editor, being able to quickly update a piece of content from any device means one less barrier to getting a task done, when and where they want. For a developer, the prospect of diving into web services and building APIs that can be used for mobile apps or in conjunction with the latest Javascript framework is empowering and exciting, especially since the work of structuring entities and fields and administrating content can stay in Drupal. For the site builder, who simply wants to quickly get a site up and running out-of-the-box with a theme that "just works on mobile," the default responsive theme, Bartik, is a time-saver for sure.

By the end of this lesson, you'll have a better idea of the depth and breadth of what "mobile" means for Drupal 8 users of all kinds.
