April provided plenty of news and updates in the Drupal world and here we take a look at all the best bits from the previous month.
Drupal is actively seeking out members of the Drupal community to help with a number of different initiatives to help shape the future of Drupal 8. There are a number of different core team meetings that you can actively get involved in so be sure to check them out and get involved.
April saw the long awaited Drupalcon Nashville take place and the event was very well received. The highlight as is usually the case with Drupalcon being Driesnote, Drupal founder Dries Buytaert’s keynote speech. This year he talked us through the future of Drupal, including existing opportunities in the market and what Drupal is doing to boost the growth of the platform. He also took the chance to highlight the core principles of Drupal and how the values we pride ourselves on can have a lasting impact on our world. Along with another 2 keynote speeches and over 150 different sessions, there was a lot to take in during this year's Drupalcon and you can catch up on what you missed out on, on the Drupalcon Nashville website.
