Drupal 8 Preview from Drupalcon Munich - Simpler, Mobile, Marketer Friendly

There were several significant announcements about Drupal 8 in Munich this week. It's looking like the next major revision of the CMS is going to bring a lot of usability and functionality to the Marketers of the world. Here're the money quotes:

...the Drupal core programmers have been busy and at Drupalcon Munich, a series of significant usability and feature upgrades in the works for Drupal 8 have been demonstrated. These improvements are sure to please CMOs and CTOs alike.

This one really gets me excited for our marketing clients:

Content creation in Drupal 8 will be greatly simplified for less technical users. Drupal 8 will provide easier layout control and facilitate gorgeous designs with practically no coding. All of these features will greatly lower the learning curve for new developers.

The DrupalCon San Francisco 2010 Survival Kit

This weekend marks the beginning of the highly-anticipated, semi-annual Drupal conference: DrupalCon San Francisco 2010. In years past, DrupalCon has made and broken Drupal developers, coders, techno-geeks, and Drupalistas alike with long break-out sessions, birds-of-a-feather throwdowns, after-parties, and mechanical bull rides. Anything can happen at a DrupalCon, and with the buzz building bigger than ever, I have a feeling that this year is going to be the best yet!

Whether you are a DrupalCon virgin or a seasoned veteran, it is always important to be prepared. As thousands of Drupalistas finish packing and prepare to descend upon the unsuspecting streets of San Francisco, the Cub Scout in me wants to ensure that you survive this year’s DrupalCon without any permanent scars.

Over the last month or so, I have gathered a list of essential items for this year’s installment of DrupalCon. I used social networks to ask for opinions, feedback, and other items I might have overlooked. One such facebook friend, Rebekah Farris, was even inspired enough to put together her own DrupalCon Survival Kit list. Her list is very thorough, funny, and covers some of the essential items, such as a laptop, duct tape, and swag.

Our lists may overlap with one or two items, but rest assured that a fresh and unique DrupalCon SF 2010 Survival Kit follows after the jump.
