Notes from our NTC Connect session

    Thanks to Tim Nafziger for co-facilitating the the "Connect" session with me for Drupal community members to meet and talk informally at NTC. Here are my notes on the conversation:


    We had an excellent group with a wide range of people participating, from newbies to agency owners. Our two main topics were how to get started learning to use Drupal, and what the future of Drupal holds. The latter topic is hard to summarize, but suffice to say there are still a wide range of opinions about Drupal 8. Even more than 2 years after it's release, there are still 4 times as many sites using Drupal 7 as Drupal 8.

    As for learning Drupal, we had many great suggestions. One person shared this cartoon illustrating that rather than the typical "learning curve," figuring Drupal out is more like climbing a cliff. But as y'all know, when you get to the top you can really kick butt.

     

    So, here are our suggestions for scaling that cliff!
